At Least There Was a Box


Our water heater, which we just discovered was installed almost twenty-two years ago, developed a small leak and needed to be replaced. A maintenance guy from one of Rose’s properties came on Saturday to help do that. Of course, no home project at our house ever goes smoothly. In this case, the floor was bad and needed repair.

I shut the cat’s in the Florida room at 10:30 in the morning and they were stuck in there almost all day. I think it was after 6:30 when I decided that our multiple trips to Home Depot were over and everything else that needed to be done could be accomplished with the front do shut, so I let the cats into the house. Of course, the huge box in the kitchen caught their attention.

It was actually standing upright first when Frankie jumped inside of it. I tried to coax Frankie to jump out but he wasn’t interested so I turned it on its side.

Chris took it over like the boss that he is so I had to pull out the garbage for him.

Floki enjoyed it from the top.

It was finally finished at around 9:15 which probably means we set a record for longest water heater installation. We felt very bad that we kept the guy from his family for so long but we did pay him more. I also felt bad that we couldn’t keep the box for the cats but it just took up too much room. At least it was fun for them while it lasted.

    That was a nice-sized box for some fun! I remember when I was a kid, my brother and I would get quite excited about BIG boxes (new washer, new large appliance) and we’d keep them and make “forts” out of them. I think cats like to do that too!

    That looks like one of the bestest boxes ever. We hate that you couldn’t keep it. So happy you got to have some fun. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, angel Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet

    What an awesome box! I’m glad your water heater is installed now. We live in an older house (circa 1928), so things are ALWAYS more complicated!
