The day started on a high note: one extra hour of sleep, thanks to clocks falling back for day light saving and the anticipation of a warm house after getting the heating unit fixed. I made wholegrain waffles for breakfast (not vegan, so no recipe) and made this simple cabbage curry.
But the heating unit is not fixed yet and we are still trapped in an extremely cold house (average home temperatures have been between 54 to 58F). I have my son in at least 3 layers and he started to complain saying "we are not going out Amma, I don't want this shirt". I don't know when this ordeal is going to end. I was wondering if there's any consumer protection groups in US that we can complain about this very unprofessional company we are dealing with. Any suggestions are highly appreciated. We are extremely motivated to complain to anyone who can help us out with this situation.. Thanks in advance.
