Looks like we’ve started something new that will probably continue as long as we live in this town. Seems as though either Christmas or Thanksgiving, we have to replace the heating element in our water heater. It was the day after Christmas last year when we had these dudes here working on the water heater.
They put in a super duper supposed to last twice as long element and it didn’t even make it one year! It will be three years in January that we’ve lived here and this is the third element we’ve put in.
Do you wonder why we drink bottled water?
Don’t tell Vince but I’ve been hoping the element would go out sooner rather than later because when the plumber comes, we can talk about that gas line I want put through my garage (gas stove . . remember?). But my husband is much smarter than I am. He’s not going to have a plumber anywhere near this house for fear it could cost him to add the gas line and buy a new stove! Vince said “I ordered elements to have on hand so I have some here. I’ll change it myself tomorrow.” HUH?? I want the plumber to come! I need to talk to the plumber about the gas line! Nope, he’s gonna do it himself. Vince is not “Mr. Fix It” and when he starts working on things . . that’s enough to send me to the mall! 🙂
