Oh man are we having a baaaaad day.....

It all started last night around 4:00 PM...My son Elijah and myself both started puking. Abby had been puking all day so I figure we all have some sort of virus. DH comes home from his aerobics class (long story I'll tell you about later) and says "What is that smell? I smell wires burning." Of course my head is so stopped up I can't smell anything but I help him search. I accidently touch the hot water heater and realize it is MUCH hotter than it should be..we found our problem. The thing is toast and wondered why it didn't trip the ciruit. If DH hadn't smelled it, our house could have caught fire. We get up this morning to go get a new hot water heater and dh starts puking. We get in his truck and it won't start so

Oh you poor thing Karla!!!

I couldn't even imagine how horrible your day must've been. I hope everyone gets on the mend soon, and you get that hot water heater wired right...wouldn't want that to happen again. Make sure that electrician is insured and bonded!!!!! Hopefully your day will be much better tomorrow! Cyber hugs to you and your family.Great Big Hug

I know exactly how you feel. We had one of those days last week. It seemed that everything that could go wrong did!

Hope things are better tomorrow and everyone is well.
