All of us had to use the fireplace.

Sometimes things go wrong that are not under your control.

Other times things go wrong when you are trying to take control, plus never should have tried.

I have done this many times. My latest blunder was when I tried to service the oil furnace. My partner was freezing, our son was complaining, plus they were aggravated that the Heating plus A/C worker was there yet. It had only been an hour since I called for oil furnace service. They said it would take about more than one hours, so I couldn’t figure out why they were aggravated. I promised our partner that if they weren’t there within more than one hours, I was going to see if I couldn’t service the oil furnace. In the meantime, I headed out to the shed to bring up a couple wheelbarrow full of wood. I was going to get the fireplace laboring to keep us warm. I laid the kindling plus the logs on the hearth plus I lit the paper underneath. I could see the flame plus then I felt the smoke. I hadn’t changed the flue to let the smoke out. I must have put the damper in every position possible, even though I still had smoke coming into the house. Now all of us had the fans going on a freezing night, plus the air vents in both bathrooms, hoping to pull the smoke out of the house. I never did get to work on the oil furnace, since I was busy trying to not suffocate us while keeping us warm with the fireplace. When the Heating plus A/C tech finally arrived, I had the fireplace laboring respectfully plus our partner plus son weren’t complaining any longer.
