After our recent divorce, I have taken on lots more duties inside our home that I no doubt took for granted before.
I allowed my partner to do them for so long.
I have attempted to improve my cooking skills while I’ve also been taking classes on budgeting plus doing my personal taxes. Our split was in partly from me never acknowledging her hard work and her efforts around the home enough. That actually shows now that she is gone. And so with that in mind, I take full responsibility for our split. The best thing I can do is my own personal growth, plus try to improve a lot as a human being. One other thing that I actually need to get a better grip on is making large purchases. The skills that my ex-partner excelled at most was researching products before buying them. She really knew all the right websites to visit for online reviews before she ever stepped foot into a store to look at our options. One major example of this that cropped up during the past few weeks is when I needed a new window air conditioner to update our old one that finally died. It had lasted for 15 years of solid use so I can’t complain regardless of the inconvenience it caused me. I went ahead and ordered a random piece of A/C equipment without much research on my part. Unfortunately, I could have never expected to end up with A/C equipment that is twice as loud as our old one was. And I made the large mistake of not verifying the noise level rating before buying the new window air conditioner for the house. In the end, I decided to just take the A/C equipment back to the store to get another brand. And this time I made sure to find A/C equipment that was flaunted as being quiet.
