For what seems like forever, my hubby and I had been looking for a house, however it is not that we did not care for the house that we were living in, it is just that it was a little too big for just the more than one of us! All of our children had moved out, and there was no sense in us having a three family room two bathroom house for just us and only us.
We eventually found a house that we both easily liked, so we went ahead and got it, one of the things that I have constantly wanted in our house is a wood burning fireplace.
I care about the aroma of fireplaces, and I told our hubby that having a fireplace was one of our priorities when were on the hunt for a new place to call home. He tried to convince myself and others that I actually would not like it in the long run because it was messy and a lot of work to keep up with, although I was convinced that I would care about having a fireplace in our house! With that being said, we bought our new house, and it has a wood burning fireplace in the living room. It is the main source of heat for the house, which means we have to make sure that it is constantly burning while we were in the Winter time months, my hubby chops all the wood from our woods outback, and I usually make sure that the fire is kept up with. I think it would be awesome if I would have listened to our hubby because I hate having a fireplace. It is too much work to keep up with, and it also makes quite a mess at times. My hubby was correct on that, but it is too late now, so I have a feeling that I am stuck with the old fireplace for the time being.
