Our cooling system shut off

I had been waiting weeks to enjoy a nice long weekend at my cottage up in the woods, and that moment had finally come last weekend! I was so extremely excited! I packed up three days worth of clothes, a few of my preferred books, and some nice hot clothes….

I’m on a tight schedule

Yesterday had been one of those days where I could not bring myself to make dinner for a family of 5. Unfortunately, that was my responsibility almost every day of the week! I was the only person within the family that was able to cook. It became my responsibility to…

Fall weather that works great

Well, we broke another record! If it was for most points at my kids sports game or something like that, I would be happy.  However, it is for the coldest days we have ever had in the Fall. We have been having these cold temperatures for over two weeks and…

The temperatures are not that extreme

Winter has arrived early this year and I’m really not ready for it, After 2 weeks of temperatures in the mid-fifties during the day I finally broke down and took out my window air conditioners. It’s only the middle of September and I am definitely dreading changing over to winter…

I’m very reluctant

Working around the house

I was about five when my mother took me to the allergy doctor.  After weeks of testing, we found out that I had high sensitivity to nearly every environmental allergen, known to man.  Mom wanted to make sure I was always feeling so she had our HVAC tech install the…

I would love to move

I remember waking up in the middle of the night, and not being able to breathe.  My mom had me to the doctor’s about once a week, and then they started to do allergy testing.  I think I was allergic to every known allergen, in the world.  It didn’t take…

I think that we should work on this

I was always in and out of the doctor’s office when I was kid.  They finally realized that it wasn’t my dislike of school, but I was suffering with severe allergies.   Mom didn’t want me to be sick all the time, so she had an air purification system installed in…
