dear santa, bring me a trane

while mother nature was busy lowering the temperature outside, my 15-year old gas pack was doing the same inside.

yes, i painted the hallway and later got a new thermostat.
no, i didn't bother to repaint.

so it was out with the old

and in with the new


they better be right when they say "nothing stops a trane".

to my secret blog santa from jill's gift exchange, feel free to send a donation towards josh's christmas present.

  10. Our trane stopped after two years. Thank goodness for warranty - the parts bill would have been $800!

  11. Not repainting makes it look rally avant-garde or sloppy, haven't decided yet. Post-modern? Post-industrial?

    Glad you are warm though cause 45 degrees inside is BANANAS!

  17. Don't paint it. Says you are an individual who won't succumb to society's pressures....or you are just lazy....but I go with #1.

  21. It's been crazy cold here lately, so I hope that new heating system helps! It's supposed to be even colder next week which is crazy bc this is South Carolina and it was 15 the other morning someone said!

    Don't worry about not repainting :). None of us have perfect homes, trust me!
