I think that’s stupid

Owning a house has become much more of a hassle the older I get.  I’ve lucked out to be able to make some money on the sale of 2 homes.  However, with the economic temperature the way it is now, owning a house isn’t necessarily the financial lock it once was.  The value of lake house ownership is debatable for the first time in my life. The sale of my last lake house was not someplace as lucrative as the first sale.  Plus, I’m sick of being on the hook for every single detail. I’m just not as interested in the weight of lake house ownership. The next time the Heating plus Air Conditioning goes out, it’s not on me.  Currently, all I have to do is call the rental office if I have a concern with an appliance. Granted, the rental office may not transport on my requests with the seriousness I might. But, I love it someone else has to call the heating plus cooling men to make an appointment.  In fact, I am having a bit of an Heating plus Air Conditioning issue right now. The heating plus cooling unit in our rental house is way overdue for an substitute. I have pointed out that I am dealing with a heat pump which has less than a 10 SEER rating. The refrigerant could also be r 22 this Heating plus Air Conditioning is so old.  In my call to the rental office, I reminded them it may behoove them to replace the Heating plus Air Conditioning unit now. Waiting another year will be more valuable. The close to 2020 we get, the more it’s going to cost to replace a decrepit Heating plus Air Conditioning unit. The dawn of 2020 marks the time r 22 refrigerant will no longer be manufactured in the US.  I’m urging the rental group to substitute my Heating plus Air Conditioning now while the prices are more reasonable. But, I’m glad it’s someone else’s problem.

I was falling asleep while they set my air conditioner up

Just last week, the two of us got hit by a severe and unexpected rainstorm.  There were genuinely high winds and torrential downpours. Our electrical power went out at as early as three o’clock in the afternoon.  With no electricity at our disposal, both of us had no running water, lights or air conditioning. This situation started out as an aggravation and quickly it turned into a nightmare.  Because of the constant rain, both of us couldn’t open the windows. Our home quickly became overheated and clammy inside. We each hoped our power would be restored quickly, although I eventually had to light a bunch of candles and then dig out the flashlights.  Making dinner was also a considerable challenge, because I couldn’t use the microwave or stove. I also had trouble seeing what I was doing, and without running water, I was also unable to wash up afterward. Sitting around in the dark for hours with no internet or TV wasn’t all that enjoyable, so we both decided to go to bed early.  Unfortunately, both of us failed to get any sleep. There was no opportunity of falling asleep without the a/c on. I laid on top of the blankets but still sweated profusely. The rain had slowed a bit by that point, so I opened our family room windows. There was not enough of a breeze to give adequate relief from the heat. Plus, our neighbor’s dog was barking non stop at full volume.  The dog was so loud, it sounded like he was on the other side of our wall in our family room. Without power, I couldn’t even run a fan to drown his barking out. We went without electricity for another 20 hours. I am now looking into a standby generator, because I don’t ever want to go through something like that again if I can prevent it.

I really am getting butterflies

In school our roommate plus I live in a dormitory with outdated hydronic heating; Each room as a radiator that connected to a large boiler somewhere in the basement plus we could turn or radiator off or on however that was about the extent of the temperature control. One of our read buddies had come over for read time one day plus she brought her pet hedgehog with her. Both of us weren’t supposed to have any pets in our rooms however the little hedgehog could be hidden under a coat so no one notices. Besides, they don’t make much noise. I have to admit, we were having more fun watching the hedgehog explore the room rather than studying. And then a near catastrophe happened. The hedgehog crawled underneath the radiator plus went to sleep. The radiator was on plus truly tepid however the space was just sizable enough for a hedgehog plus we couldn’t fit our hands under to get the creature. He turned off the radiator so it would not get any more heat from the boiler while we poked plus prodded the hedgehog with hangers. Finally, out of desperation, our read buddy dumped a cup of chilly water on her pet with the hopes of keeping it from roasting to death. The hedgehog right away got worried plus walked out from under the radiator. It was wet plus annoyed however seemed to be completely unharmed.  I don’t think any of us l received much from our books that afternoon.
