Today he came by to pick up the deposit for the furnace and take measurements. It will be installed tomorrow. He recommended a plumber so I called and they came out at 3. My parents had said that they might want to get a hotel but they decided to stay. It took the plumber over an hour to snake the drain from the roof vent. $150 later, I have working drains and toilets. He said it was probably caused from sitting vacant so long and toilet paper and other things drying out in the drains.
The day crawled by today probably because I was worried about what was happening at home. My parents are stuck without a car now and not having working bathrooms was inconvenient to say the least. Anyway, that is over and we can continue the search for a car. I'm sure we will find one by the weekend. Or I should say, we better find one by the weekend because I need to other things on my to-do list.
