Moving States can be rough.
My wife and I recently moved up North in order to be closer to both of our families.
Before my wonderful friend and I moved closer, it used to take us fifteen hours to drive to my parents house, and twenty-two hours to drive to my wife’s parents. After residing so far away for almost ten years, my wonderful friend and I decided it was time for us to move closer to family especially for the sake of our kids. Moving into and residing in a current home was not easy. There are so various small things that I miss about our home out West. One of those things is our electric heater. It was so easy to heat the apartment out West. All I had to do was change the thermostat to adjust the temperature and not worry about it anymore. Our current home is quite a weird story. My pal and I heat the apartment with a pellet stove in the basement. Not only is it a hassle for me to buy the pellets, but it is also taxing for me to remember to fill the pellet stove. My wife would normally do this type of thing, however she recently broke her leg, so she can’t get down to the basement legitimately easily. In my opinion, having a pellet stove isn’t as difficult as having a wood stove like I did growing up, but it’s still more work than what I am used to doing just to heat the house. With all that said, I am cheerful to have a moderate house, but I hope my wonderful friend and I can update that stove someday.
