Moving States can be rough. My husband and I recently moved up North in order to be closer to both of our families. Before we moved closer, it used to take us fifteen hours to drive to my parents house, and twenty-two hours to drive to my husband’s parents. After living so far away for almost ten years, we decided it was time for us to move closer to family especially for the sake of our kids. Moving into and living in a new home was not easy. There are so many small things that I miss about our home out West. One of those things is our electric furnace. It was so easy to heat the house out West. All I had to do was change the thermostat to adjust the temperature and not worry about it anymore. Our new home is quite a different story. We heat the house with a pellet stove in the basement. Not only is it a hassle for me to buy the pellets, but it is also hard for me to remember to fill the pellet stove. My husband would normally do this type of thing, but he recently broke his leg, so he can’t get down to the basement very 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 happy to have a warm house, but I hope we can replace that stove someday.
