In this world of staying home…
I am so tired of hearing the people on the television.
They always say that this is the new normal.
I don’t know about you, but I see nothing normal about it. The only thing that keeps me sane is knowing that I have a ten acre yard that I can go out and walk in. Forget about the six foot social distancing rule. I can walk all day and not see a single person. Unfortunately, since the social distancing has begun, the weather has been crappy. For two weeks, it was either threatening rain, or we had thunder and lightning. This week, we had rain, which turned into snow, and we ended up with six inches of snow. My husband isn’t very happy with the weather, but I can’t do anything to change it. He turned the furnace off about a month ago. Now, we are counting on the fireplace to keep some heating in the house. He keeps asking me if I want him to turn the furnace back on, but I feel like it would be a waste of time and money. It is already spring and summer is right around the corner. We’ll be using the air conditioning soon, so why waste energy and turn the furnace back on. Personally, I would prefer to turn back time. I could have been spending my honeymoon on a warm beach. I would be turning on the air conditioning after a long walk on the beach and swimming in my private pool. That would be my normal this week and not sitting in my home wondering if we should turn the furnace back on.
