Milestone # 3,497 Changing the filter for the furnace

Add it to the list of things that I’ve never had to do before.  I should have done it a few months ago, but I didn’t.  But today, I decided since it was the first of the month it would be a good day to start.

It really wasn’t difficult.  The most intimidating part was taking off the furnace cover.  No… let me take that back… the most intimidating part was re-attaching the furnace cover- all fingers remained in tact, no blood was shed, and I got it back on.

Hopefully, I did it right.  John had left the right screwdriver and had labeled the air flow direction (but it was backwards- but I knew that because of a prior discussion he’d had with a friend) and he’d circled the screw that needed to be removed.

And for the record, it has been changed since John had gotten sick, this is just the first time that I’ve changed it.

So… milestone #3,497 under the belt.

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
