For the first four years after both of us got married, my wife as well as I rented an apartment.
Every one of us lived in one of those huge complexes with all sorts of amenities.
Every one of us had access to a huge swimming pool as well as several boiling tubs. Surrounding the pool was a massive patio area with all sorts of lounge chairs, tables with umbrellas as well as barbecue grills. There were tennis courts, a state-of-the-art fitness center, game room as well as conference center. Included in our home both of us had a balcony overlooking the pool, washer as well as dryer, tile countertops as well as the most modern stainless steel appliances. The energy bills were included in our rent. Every one of us set the temperature control at the ideal temperature as well as never upset over how much it cost to operate the heating as well as cooling system. Every one of us had no problems over the reliability of the equipment. If there wasn’t enough boiling air coming from the vents, both of us called repair as well as complained. If the A/C was making a unusual noise, the repair department tested it. Since both of us weren’t ecstatic with spending on money instead of investing in something, both of us bought our own home. Every one of us suddenly realized that a home is a lot of work as well as responsibility. Suddenly, the cost of energy costs was important to us. Every one of us now adjust the temperature control to conserve energy as well as suffer with a slightly overheated environment in the Summer as well as rather cold home in the winter. We’ve signed up for a repair method with a local Heating as well as A/C business as well as have reminders for filter swings written on the calendar. While it’s nice having our own home, both of us both miss the conveniences of the home building.
