"The Laughter of a Child is the Light of a Home"

We have a problem with our boiler. It stinks! Literally, and our CO monitors go off every time we turn the heat no. Not a good thing. So while we have been pricing out wood boilers, we have to heat our home with our two fireplaces. I am so great full that we have fireplaces and that Joel gets all the wood we need for free. So last night the kids and I slept in the basement so we were closer to the heat. At one 'o clock I woke up to put more wood in the fire and found Jordon hiding under the fuss ball table starring at the fire. "Have you been there all night" I asked him "Yeah the fire was bothering me". When we first bought our house we had one of the glass doors on the fireplace break when he was watching it. It scared him to death. Although there is no glass on the fireplace down stairs I guess Jordon feels like it is his responsibility to keep an eye on the fire and make sure everything is ok. I felt so bad. I talked him in to coming to lay down and we said a prayer. With in seconds he was a sleep. I climbed back up on the couch to fall back to sleep. It wasn't long till I had three kids wake up and crawl on top of me. Picture one small couch, an 8 year old a 3 year old a 2 year old and me at the bottom. My back hurts and my neck hurts today. If I add up the total weight of the bodies on top of me it is over 100lbs. Needless to say I may need a nap today!
