This past summer time was really disappointing, after an especially long & brutal winter, the people I was with and I were looking forward to sun & hot weather.
The people I was with and I spent nearly many weeks with the windows shut slim & the furnace blasting at maximum capacity.
Endless amounts of snow & rapidly decreasing temperatures down to twenty-five below zero kept us trapped in the house. The only time I ventured outside was to shovel snow or scrape ice. I paid enormous heating bills & worried that the furnace would malfunction & our water pipes would freeze, and when the Spring season finally showed up, it was wet, windy & freezing. I needed to keep the furnace operating until the end of March. The people I was with and I had snow on the ground when the tulips were trying to bloom. I hoped we’d be rewarded with a long & appealing summer. Instead, the people I was with and I got high humidity & lots of rain. Because the home felt hot & sticky, I needed to start up the cooling system. With all the rain & mud, the youngsters were forced to remain indoors. I have many youngsters under the age of ten, & I don’t allow them to watch cable or play video games all afternoon. It didn’t take long for them to get bored & drive each other crazy. At a single point, I noticed that the cooling system kept starting up & shutting off repeatedly. I was already dreading the cost of a service when I realized our youngsters were gathered around the control device arguing about the temperature, however my oldest child wanted to turn it way down & our child wanted it warmer. I’ve now added a child lock to the control unit. I also bundled all our youngsters up in rain gear & sent them outside to get some fresh air.
