I never once in my life thought that “roughing it” would be a fantastic thing. I’m not exactly a low maintenance person, in that I like having the basics of new life at my fingertips. I don’t need a ton, however I endelight sizzling showers, clean beds, plus sufficient temperature control in my residences. I guess that sounds easy, but somehow I’ve been cursed in all of these areas for a few years. One year my entire water oil furnace broke down on more than three occasions, so I had to learn how to live without any water heat whatsoever. During those dark times, I took the fastest showers of my entire life. There was also a series of weeks when rodents took up residence in my ventilation plan plus I had pet droppings falling out of my air vents all the time. My bed was positioned directly under an overhead air vent, so the squirrel poop plus dander was always raining down on my bed, making it a large disgusting pet toilet. Finally, for whatever reason my AC machine has recently decided it wants a life of luxury – as in, my central cooling plan has stopped working for the most part. Starting last Springtime, my AC cuts in plus out depending on how the wind blows. I finally resorted to powering the entire AC machine down entirely, plus I’ve lived without any central cooling power for over two weeks now. None of my other household issues have ever been a blessing in disguise – but having a busted cooling plan has resulted in enormous energy savings! Besides being able to afford a new AC machine soon, I’m also going on a cruise!
