I caught my house on fire with my wood stove twice

I have no idea how I have such bad luck when it comes to wood stoves.

When I was a little girl, I tried helping my parents out by adding wood to our wood stove one evening. My parents were in the other room, so they did not even know that I did it. I didn’t mention it to them because I thought that I was doing something sweet. I had all good intentions, but what I didn’t realize was that I didn’t close the door all of the way, and a piece of wood fell out. It was on fire, so it caught the rug on the floor on fire. Thankfully, my dad found the fire before it got too big. I had nightmares about that for years. My husband and I bought a house with a wood stove years ago. I absolutely love the smell of a wood burning stove. It reminds me of home because I grew up having a wood stove. Somehow, I managed to catch my house on fire with our wood stove as well. I have no idea how I did it this time. I just woke up in the middle of the night to a fire. It was the scariest thing that I have ever experienced. I am so glad that we were able to get out of the house. We were able to save the house, but my wood stove was damaged quite a bit. I refuse to use a wood stove now. I am too afraid of them, and I think that I have good reason to be afraid of them.

My new humidifier is very nice

I find that my skin is not as dry as before, and that is really nice

Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I am not going to lie. I absolutely love getting gifts. I love to give gifts as well, but to be honest, getting gifts makes me so much happier. I know for sure that gift giving is my love language. My husband could buy me something as little as a candy bar, and I would be so happy. He knows how much I love getting gifts, so he buys me things all of the time. I am so thankful for such a thoughtful and caring man. My husband and my mom are the two people in my life who know that I love gifts and who are willing to buy me things all of the time. My mom got me a humidifier for Christmas this year, and I was beyond excited. My cousin asked me in private if I was disappointed with my gift this year, but I told him that I certainly was not disappointed. I love my humidifier. I had not even expressed to my mom that I had been wanting a humidifier for awhile, so I have no idea how she knew that I wanted one. I think that my husband may have told her, but I don’t even remember mentioning a humidifier to him either. He was super happy when I opened up the humidifier though. It was almost like he knew that I was going to get a humidifier. I have used my new humidifier about three times, and I really like it. I find that my skin is not as dry as before, and that is really nice. I love getting gifts even if it is just a humidifier.

The air conditioning in my car is not working

I wish I knew ahead of time when something was going to go wrong.

I know that most people would say that, but it just isn’t usually possible to know when something is going to go wrong.

I took a long road trip with one of my friends last week, and it was the worst road trip of my life. It would have been great if the air conditioning in my car had not stopped working within the first few hours of the trip. I have never had any issues with my car, so I thought that it would be a great idea for us to take my car on the road trip. Well, my air conditioning obviously had other ideas. It started getting warm in the car, so I turned the air conditioner way down to the coldest temperature. I also turned the blower on full blast. It just seemed like the air that was blowing out was not very cool, and I found out later that it truly wasn’t. I called my husband and asked him why the air conditioner would be blowing out warm air, and he said that it probably had a leak. We stopped by a mechanic about ten hours into our road trip, and he told us that one of our air conditioning lines was leaking, and it needed to be replaced. I asked him how much it would cost, and it was super pricey. I decided not to get it replaced because I didn’t want to spend the money on it at that time. I almost wish that I would have because the rest of the trip was quite miserable without air conditioning.

My friend fixed my furnace for free

I am so thankful to say that I got my furnace fixed for free last week. Well, I had to pay for the broken part, but I did not have to pay for the service because one of my friends offered to fix it for free. I had been having furnace troubles for about a year, but I did not mention it to anyone which was a mistake on my part. I realize now that a lot of people would have helped me, but I was too proud to ask for help. Well, God humbled me through this whole experience, and He showed me that I have some pretty amazing friends in my life. I finally told one of my friends that my furnace was having trouble, but that wasn’t until he was over at my house and noticed that it was a bit chilly. He asked me why I kept my house so cool, and I told him that it was not my choice. I set the thermostat to seventy-five degrees, but it was still chilly in my house. He worked for an HVAC company for a few years, so he knew a little bit about HVAC work. He asked if he could look at my furnace, and of course, I told him that he could. He immediately knew what was wrong, and he offered to fix it if I just bought the part. I am so thankful for such wonderful friends, and I have learned from this experience not to be too prideful to ask for help when I need it.

I don’t know how my best friend lives without air conditioning

I have the most wonderful best friend in the world.

Her name is Alamy.

She is so sweet, and we have been good friends for sometime now. I am pretty sure that we have known each other for about ten years. We were best friends from the start. It was nice to be able to connect to someone so easily. I have never had that happen to me before. Almay is one of the most frugal people that I know. It drives me crazy how frugal she is sometimes. One of the things that frustrates me is that she does not use air conditioning in her house or car. She refuses to use air conditioning because she thinks that it is too expensive. I understand that it can be quite expensive to run air conditioning throughout your house all summer long, but we live down south, and it is obnoxiously hot sometimes. I have no idea how she makes it in that house of hers without air conditioning during the summertime. Last summer, there were about fifteen days that got above one hundred degrees, and most days were in the nineties. Almay took it like a champ. Whenever we wanted to hang out though, I told her that she had to come to my house because I actually had air conditioning. She never argued with me although she was always freezing at my house because she wasn’t used to the air conditioning. I turN the temperature in my house up to seventy-five degrees whenever she comes over, but she is still cold.

My house is so much nicer now that I have a working AC system

I bought my house about three years ago. I got a really good deal on the house because it needed quite a bit of work. When I first looked at the house, I was not convinced that it was for me. I actually continued looking for houses for about another three months. My mind kept going back to this house though. I really liked the layout of it, and it had a lot of land with it. It had the potential of being my dream home, but I knew that it would need a lot of work to be just that. I decided to just go ahead and buy it and work on it for as long as I needed to make it my dream home. Well, it has been three years, and I am about half way done. I had to take a little break from the aesthetics of my house to save money to fix my air conditioning system. I knew that the air conditioning system was not working when I bought the house. I also knew that anything HVAC related would be an expensive fix, but I took that into consideration. It took me a few months of saving in order to be able to afford fixing my air conditioning system. I am so glad that I decided to do that before continuing to fix up my house. It is so much nicer working in an air conditioned house. It makes me so happy to be nice and cool. I find that I get more work done as well. I have a long way to go, but at least I have air conditioning now.

I bought a new air conditioner for my sister

One of my favorite things in life is being a big sister.

I know that it sounds childish to say “big sister,” but I do not know how else to express what it is like.

My sister looks up to me so much, and it has honestly made me evaluate the things that I do and the reasons that I do them since I know that she is watching me. She is ten years younger than I am, so we did not play much together. I was out of the house by the time that she was eight. Now, she is eighteen and in college. I cannot believe how quickly time flies by. She is going to a small college a few hours south of my parents’ house. She is living in the dorms, but they are not the nicest. They are not terrible, but the air conditioning does not work very well in her dorm room, so I decided to buy her an air conditioner to put in her window. I made sure to ask if that would be okay since the college would have to pay more on electricity, but they said that it was fine since the AC did not work well in her room. It was super sweet to see her reaction. She was super surprised and happy to have an air conditioner that worked. I knew that she always loved sleeping in a cool room, so I cannot imagine how hard it was for her to sleep when her room was warm. Hopefully, the air conditioner that I got her will help her get some much needed rest.

My son loves to watch our electric fireplace

I absolutely love being a mom.

I just gave birth to our first little baby boy.

He is so sweet. I cannot even express how much I love that little guy. He just turned two months old, and I cannot believe how fast time has flown past. It feels like yesterday that I was in the hospital meeting him for the first time. I really wish that time would stand still for a few years. I am already dreading him getting any older. He is a pretty good baby, but he does get fussy quite a bit. I have tried many things to settle him down, but I have found that the best thing is to sit him in front of the fireplace. He loves to watch the fake flames. It is an electric fireplace, so the flames aren’t even real flames, but that does not matter to him. He will literally lie down in front of it and watch it for an hour or more. I have never loved my fireplace so much. I have always wanted a “real” fireplace, but I would not trade this electric one for a real one anyday. Now that I know how much my baby loves this fireplace, I am suddenly satisfied with it. My husband laughs at me because I used to mention how much I wanted a wood burning fireplace almost every single day. He always had an eye out to see if he could find a wood fireplace for a cheap price, but he no longer has to look. I hope that our electric fireplace keeps working to soothe our fussy baby boy.

My three year old has been randomly dropping food down our vents

Ever since I was a little girl, I have dreamed about being a parent.

I have always loved children.

After just a few months of marriage, I was ready to have our first baby. My husband convinced me to wait at least a year. He wanted time with just us two before kids came along. I am so thankful that he convinced me to wait because it is simply not the same once children come into your life. We now have four children, and I can say that there is really nothing in this life that can truly prepare you for children. I was not prepared for how much work raising these little ones would be. I have a three year old right now, and he is going through one of those naughty stages. My husband and I found out the hard way that our three year old son had been throwing food into the HVAC vents in our living room. We came home one afternoon and realized that the house had a foul smell to it. We thought it was the trash, so we took it out, but the next day we walked into the house, and it had the same foul smell. We looked for hours to try and find the source. Eventually, my husband called me over to a vent in the living room and asked me if I thought the smell was coming from it. I knew right away that the vent was definitely what smelled. We stuck a vacuum hose down there and tried to suck as much out as we could. We discovered that it was a bunch of old food down there. It stunk terribly. Our three year old had been throwing food down in the HVAC vents for who knows how long.

I drove an entire day in the middle of the summer without air conditioning

I love road trips so much.

People ask me all the time if I get sick of driving since I drive a school bus for a living, and I live about thirty minutes from work. I honestly do not ever get sick of driving. I love it so much, and I think that is the only reason I have stuck with this job for so long. Something about driving relaxes me, and I truly enjoy it. I offer to drive buses for field trips and church events all of the time. I recently offered to drive a bus full of adults to a park about four hours away. They were celebrating something, and they wanted to go to this beautiful park for the special occasion. I love driving, so even though it would be an all day event I was not worried about it. Something I was not made aware of until the day of was the fact that the bus I would be driving did not have air conditioning. It was over eighty degrees outside in the middle of July, and there was no air conditioning in the bus. I could not believe that the people riding the bus did not have a problem with not having air conditioning. It was the hottest road trip that I have ever been on. It was sticky and humid the entire trip. I was so miserable. Even though I got to drive, I was still not very happy because of the heat. I have learned from that experience to always ask if there is air conditioning before offering to drive for people.
