8/22/15 the boiler, school breaks and the weather…

written 1.20.14 –  It was chilly in the house when we got up today. The pilot light on the boiler had gone out. We have lit it before. It usually only goes out in the summer if the basement windows are open and the wind happens to get into that small opening. I tried to light the boiler. It wouldn’t light so I found the directions and read them. I tried to light it again. It didn’t work. It is so frustrating to try to to everything for my family, take care of the kids, pay the bills, make the meals and then something goes wrong that I have no idea how to fix. It is extra frustrating when the boiler goes out in the winter and the house is getting colder and colder.  I want to do everything right for the kids, but how can I be good at everything? We needed to leave to get Maggie to a school function. How can we leave the cats here in a cold house. They have fur right? How cold can it get before they feel cold? Later I called the repairman. He came over and looked at it. A small part needed replaced. While he was here I asked if I had been lighting it the correct way. He said no and showed me how to light it. I am so glad to have the heat back on. It may get down to ten degrees tonight.
It is cold and there is snow but the roads are clear.
Beth is so glad to be back at school she loves seeing all of her friends. He kids were on break for Christmas which was at least two weeks long. Then they were off for the bad weather. Then they had finals week where they only had school for half days that week. Then they were off for Martin Luther King Jr day on Monday, then the teachers had an in-service day on Tuesday and the kids had a two hour delay on Wednesday. Beth is glad that there aren’t any more vacations planned soon.
It was about two degrees today. It has been cold for a while. When I was young it stayed cold and snowy all winter. Lately it has been back and forth between cold and warm. When the temperatures change a lot between cold and warm we end up with a lot of ice on the roads. This year we have had a lot of cold weather. The steady cold weather does mean that we don’t have the ice on the roads

blog income
I have been looking for a way to bring extra cash into my family without getting a second job. I just want enough extra income to be able to pay the bills but still be able to have time to enjoy my kids. I tried a lot of web sites that offered envelope stuffing, they were all dead ends. Then I tried blogging. I figured that if enough people visited my blog then I could add advertisements and get paid. If I monetized my blog I could take the profit to help my family. I have found Blogsvertise. With them I can have advertisements on my blog, or have guest posts or have banner ads. I am still new to this.
