Finally, I at last actually got something good out of having to put up with a bunch of boys all summer.
My own husband just doesn’t understand why I’m at my wits end with our boys during summer break.
In his mind, the boys are just out of the air conditioning being boys and playing the way they should in the summer. And he is ensconced inside the zone controlled HVAC of his office all summer anyway. So, it’s easy to roll his eyes at me when I complain about the boys. I wish those kids were outside all day. But the fact is that we live in a region where the peak heating hours are brutal outside. That’s when the boys are inside the central air conditioning and getting on my nerves. The fighting and horse play seem to be nearly endless and I’m trying to work from home instead of inside the commercial HVAC of an office. I work part time online in order to add to our monthly income. Plus, I just like what I actually do. But it’s tough to concentrate inside the central air conditioning of my home during the summer. The boys are always loud and boisterous. Last summer though, I did get a smart thermostat due to the boys destroying the old digital thermostat. This had been something that I wanted for a long time. Once the old thermostat was wrecked from a basketball, he had no more excuses when it came to upgrading the thermostat. I simply love the smart thermostat for its convenience and ease of operation. And my husband was shocked by how much the smart thermostat has saved us on heating and air conditioning costs.
