I’m feeling very comfortable

I despise working out. I am not one of these people who finds they get a great high from pounding the pavement for several miles. I certainly cannot find one aspect of working out in a gym that excites me. Gyms are basically places to drown in personal self-loathing, as you compare yourself to every […]

My mom has a nice house

It’s a funny thing how your perception changes so drastically when you visit home! I feel like I rapidly transition from an adult to an angst-ridden teenager the moment I step foot inside my mom’s house.  One moment I’m totally responsible and high functioning, and the next I’m crying hysterically on the bathroom floor. It […]

I would like a bigger shed

I have been called a hoarder for much of our life. And while I happen to disagree with that particular label,  I do realize how all of our beloved possessions could be considered overwhelming to some people. I realize that I collect a lot of wonderful stuff. I have well over 15 TVs, and almost […]

Ductless heat pumps are necessary

About ten  years ago, I started building furniture as a activity. I’ve gradually gotten quite good at it and have had success selling my creations. As demand has increased, I’ve outgrown my workspace in the basement. I decided to build an independent workshop in my backyard. This allowed me more room to work on several […]

There’s so many parts in this

I recently was required to call for repair for my central cooling system.  The air conditioning system had been struggling for quite some time. I should have instantly called for HVAC service.  Because I was busy at work as well as reluctant to spend the time as well as money on repair, I procrastinated until […]
