Living in a place where the cold months are more severe than other parts of the country is not good for anyone who has arthritis like my husband or sensitive skin like me.
Spring and summer are the most beautiful seasons for us.
We would back in the warm sun and even walk on our bare feet in the house with a glass of lemonade in our hands. I told my husband that we weren’t getting any younger. We needed to make some changes in the house to make us more comfortable. I was tired of seeing our children and grandchildren walk around in their anti-slip socks whenever they stayed over. Our home should be a haven for everyone even during the overly freezing months. Finally, my husband was able to find the right HVAC contractor who was able to get us a good deal on having heated floors installed in our home. The process was not even as laborious as I have imagined. It didn’t take long at all. They finished in time for fall. When Thanksgiving came, I was overjoyed to see everyone cozy and toasty on the floor, sipping hot drinks. It was a bonus to see that no one had the sniffles or head colds while staying with us. I remember the same thing happening all those years ago, even when I turned up the heater. Now, I get teary-eyed each time I anticipate having everyone over for the holidays again. Next year, I wouldn’t have to worry about anyone feeling uncomfortable or sick anymore. I already know that my entire family will be comfortable together when the fall and winter seasons arrive once more.
