For as long as I can remember, my dad has always been a worker. He is unable of sitting in one spot. He has to constantly be moving in some way, shape, or form. Growing up I thought it was the most annoying thing. Sometimes I would want to watch some television after school, but he was always bugging me to clean my bedroom, do homework, or play outside. As an adult, I understand that my dad has a form of attention deficit disorder. Luckily, he has been able to manage it over the years. For instance, he is consistently helping out his neighbor. She is a handicapped woman that lives alone. He will do tasks for her like mowing her lawn and carrying in her groceries for her. Sure, she pays him for his service but definitely not enough. One of his favorite things to help her with is installing her air conditioning units. Her home does not have a central air conditioner installed, instead she has about three separate air conditioning units that will be installed in various windows around her home. My dad will spend the whole day at the neighbor’s residence installing these air conditioning units. He takes his time installing them since they are so darn heavy. But my father is in excellent shape, so he is capable of doing this job. Thankfully he has never severely hurt his back doing this monotonous task. Every summer, I remark to his next door neighbor how nice the air conditioner is in her home, but she’s not yet gotten the hint.
My daughter just moved into this awesome new home. It is rather small since the place is just for her and it is just what she wanted. She has a lots of savings and could have afforded a larger home but she simply did not wish for that. She built this particular place from scratch, so she put a lot of cash into it and into each of the appliances and fixtures inside the darn place. It is so beautiful and located in the smallest town about 5 minutes from her mom and I. It truly is so nice to have your daughter close since before, she lived many hours away from the family. I want to be here for her when she eventually gets partnered and starts having kids of her very own someday. I feel like since she’s so close to me, I will be spending more time at her amazing house. Especially because now, her home may just be even more beautiful than mine! I love her decor and the layout of everything. My favorite thing though is how comfortable she made it. It’s not just all about looks and she realized this. It is about comfort to boot. To keep her home the most comfortable, she has radiant floors covering her home. That is when the floor is heated. People’s feet will always feel nice and warm. She has radiant flooring installed in almost every room of her home. It was not too pricey since her home is not that big. Now I want radiant flooring at my own home. Since she is so close now, I will just be over at her home to benefit from the always toasty floors.
Coming up this weekend, I decided to babysit my friend’s dog. He is a smaller dog so I absolutely figure it can’t be that hard to manage him for a few days while my best mate is out of the city. I have never been near him before but I have seen pictures of him on a daily basis. She takes hundreds of pictures of the thing. He is a cute dog but I don’t know why she takes so many photos of it. By the looks of everything, he is a needy pet. My friend even told me this. He is the type of dog that always needs your utmost attention. He is a lap dog and expects that you always want to play whenever you get home and to cuddle before the evenings. He also sleeps inside their bed every single night. That is fine since it can be their own dog, but when I will be watching him, I’m not sure I will allow him to fall asleep inside my bed. I am sort of nervous about his visit with me. I want everything to go correctly, knowing he is that needy. One thing I need to make sure of is that the temperature of the thermostat is controlled at all times. In the event the air conditioning is on too high, I know dogs can whine. He will want to cuddle and sleep with me all the more. In the event the heat was on too high, the dog would get flushed and begin barking. My friend said she keeps her thermostat at a steady 75 which is what my canine prefers.
A person should always feel comfortable especially when it’s hot or cold out. I know that if I am about to be somewhere for a long time, I would definitely want to feel very content and comfortable. Whether it is the furniture, the air quality, the space of the room, or the well being. Where my little sister’s dance recital was held recently, I was so excited to travel to see her dance. I had dressed up for it which is extremely unlike me. I ended up wearing a dress because It was so hot outside. I sat there for a whole four hours because it was a competition. There were four hours with dances and there was many heat. It was so hot I was glad that i actually wore a dress. There seemed to be more room for airflow around my body especially when I was outside but not inside. I had a lot of sweat and I was hoping no one would see it. I know it wasn’t just me because other people were fanning themselves and taking off sweaters. I was wondering if the dancers were just as hot because I could feel no air conditioning within the place. Whatever it was it definitely had to be fixed in my opinion for the next recital. I certainly wasn’t comfortable sitting there because I was constantly sweating. I had to get up and go outside of the auditorium to get some kind of colder air. Finally she got onto the stage and danced. As soon as she did I darted from there. I waited for her to return out. The auditorium was so hot and it was too much for me at this point because my dress was almost soaked from my sweat. They really need some air conditioning for not just the dancers but for the audiences as well.
Each summer I always like to go on trips to new places. I do summer educational workshops or I just invite a few of my friends. I went to the far east of the United States and it was uncomfortably hot. You really have to become mentally ready for the whole thing.. Even when seasons improve, holidays were celebrated the same but the weather was different which was odd to me. To balance the heat out there, I was happy to live in my friend’s home where such good air conditioning was provided. When we’d leave the house to go on trips, the air conditioning inside the car was never enough not to ever give me a headache. It was subsequently not something I could get used to- and I don’t think my good friend who lived there for at least six months had yet either. The farther I’ve headed into northern territory, I’ve known that I needed to plan some good cold weather outfits if there was a lack of heat anywhere. But within a month I’ve wanted to break out my umbrella in addition to a light spring jacket because I was sick of the cold and seeing snow everywhere, I was even craving air conditioning and not a furnace. Coming inside from the daily fluctuating weather was always comfortable to me because where I stayed the HVAC system was always on. While facing cold and warm weather, thankfully in all the places either heat was blasting or the a/c.
Once I graduated high school, it seemed as if everyone just wanted to either get married or have children. I mean I am rather young so this doesn’t even seem like an option. I am not in that same boat as everyone else currently is. Indeed, I have a boyfriend but we have no want to start to settle down with our lives. We want to do so much more. We actually prefer to travel a lot first, get good jobs and put a home together. We want to take the our time doing these things and enjoying life before it is gone and planned around our kids. I would like to have children eventually but not right now. Thinking if we had children right now, there would be no way I could afford to do the new radiant flooring within the house. This is exactly what I had wanted for so long. I think heated floors are so nice. Especially for the person like me who is constantly cold during the day. My feet always look very cold. With these warm floors, there is no requirement for slippers or socks. You can still wear them but you really do not have too. Our dog likes the warm floors. He doesn’t have a ton of fur so during the winter he will love to lay on the floor and let his body to soak up the heat the floor is giving off. The heat from the bottom also rises and makes your property warm itself. This will put much a smaller amount on our energy bills and less wear and tear on the HVAC system there is as well. There is no doubt that getting radiant flooring is a good move for us.
Our summer brings on so many exciting things. I know this because they plan much more in our city. There tends to be many festivals, carnivals, fairs and so many events happening! I love to see all of these things going on. Whether I head off to these things obviously depends within the weather forecast though. You do not want to spend your day at one of those if it’ll rain. Then, it is certainly no fun for anyone. You work on dodging the rain every single time you go. You don’t want to carry an umbrella or dress yourself in a poncho either. They are annoying to have. Another inconvenience during the summer months is when the HVAC product stops working completely. This will be an inconvenience because then my house is pretty uncomfortable feeling to me. It is not just a nice place to be if this is certainly happening all of the time. In my house, my HVAC system did stop working too. I had to call an HVAC professional to come fix the problem. The issue with me is that it was a nice day to travel and do something and the other days were not looking to good. I needed to have my HVAC system fixed the exact same day though or I might not want to come home in any respect to such a warm home. The HVAC system is increased priority for sure. The HVAC professional came to my house and he fixed however, the problem. There was a pilot brightness that had turned off without treatment. It only had needed to get switched back over. I, surely, thought it was much worse.
When something these days is known as a “hot mess,” it can mean many things. Usually I hear this with regards to a person who is simply not making good choices with their life. It is funny how this has developed into a term that is used for so many things. I even heard someone refer to the problems with the computer they were looking at this way, I am confused what applies and does not apply to this saying some days. Then again, I do know that it’s current use fails to apply to what my grandmother was discussing. When she was visiting earlier this week she walked in and said “my house is a hot mess”. I had to laugh at this statement. When she heard me having a laugh she became irritated and asked why I thought that had been funny, I opted to simply ask what the challenge was. She began to explain to me that her boiler was running on a regular basis and the heat and dampness in her house was unbearable. I asked her if she had called the repairman but she said that she only just opened the window instead. I excused myself from the room and called my father. I told him what was taking place, and he said he may have a HVAC repairman go inspect the system. The fact that it was running all the time along with the open windows was sure to drive her heating bills through that roof. She can not afford to fork out that much to keep content. I am glad it will be fixed. As for trying to explain to my grandmother about the main “hot mess” thing, I can leave that for another day.
Today is the day I have decided to begin the process of planting seeds in my little greenhouse window. A few years back my better half surprised me and had a window box installed within our back room. I love to garden, and there’s nothing better than some fresh veggies in the summer. Unfortunately, it can be very costly to purchase plants that have been completely started from the garden house. I love having the window greenhouse, but I have to maintain the right temperature and humidity levels to assure the plants grow properly. When I tried growing things there the initial year, most of them didn’t make it. The room is small and just not well ventilated. The plants overheated and died too quickly. I decided we would contact our HVAC dealer to see what could be done to better regulate the environment in the back room. He had some great suggestions for us. He gave us some sources of room air conditioners for when the temperature was too warm. He also explained that there were room humidifiers and air purification systems that could be helpful to maintain proper moisture inside the room. I was more concerned about the moisture and fresh air, so we went with those choices. Springtime does not generally have several hot days but the sun being released in from the windows can be shaded easily. Plants thrive in warm, moist environments. I experienced beautiful plants in my garden from the time we made the changes. Gardening may be very relaxing and makes eating a good diet much easier too. I just like it so much.
Right after years of saving up money for my family to experience a spacious home to live within, it was finally built. It was my family’s ideal home, with everything we needed from separate bedrooms for the kids to a spacious kitchen and kitchen curtains for meals. And since I had produced the design myself, everything was laid out exactly as I had intended it to have it with all of the required amenities. I was even able to get the spiral staircase put in in our second floor; something we had always wanted to incorporate into our future home. Over the few years we lived in our house, however, we noticed things we had forgotten to add to the house in the genuine design, fortunately they were mostly “add-on” type additions rather than structural redesigns which might be made later. A gazebo for grilling together with a covering over the carport for example. But one winter, we made a decision to add something simple to one of our rooms; heated floors. It doesn’t sound like something that would improve the total well being in a home drastically, but I can’t set out to describe how exceedingly wonderful warm floors feel on the winter morning. The best part was it didn’t take long to put the heated flooring in the master suite, and we quickly decided they were worth installing across the home. Heated floors were definitely a great upgrade to how we warmed our home, and drastically increased the comfort of our house in the winter months. I’d personally highly recommend the addition of heated floors to any home; it may seem like a smaller addition to the HVAC system, but it works wonders.
