Last year, I had quite a terrible winter season.
My ex and I were still living together and we were fighting nearly every day.
We did not get along anymore, and it was continual drama in our household. Honestly, there was so much bad energy in the house that it started to feel like it was impacting our appliances. There was serious bad juju and we seem to have terrible luck out of the blue. At a certain point, I was expecting something to break every week. In the middle of winter, one of the things that broke down was our central heating system. We didn’t have enough money to pay for a professional repair service, so we got by with duct tape and crossed fingers. We used a lot of space heaters to make it through the rest of the season, and swore that we would fix the furnace before the next winter rolled around. Unfortunately, the relationship ended before then and my ex never ponied up any money for the failed central heating system. Now, the fall season has rolled back around and I just remembered that the furnace is inoperable. For the past few weeks, I’ve been using tons of space heaters to pump a little heat into my house. I don’t have enough cash to pay for this broken down furnace on my own, nor am I going to ask my ex to contribute to the HVAC problem he caused. Instead, I’m spending my days searching for steep ventilation discounts. I hope I can find an awesome coupon for having my furnace professionally serviced before winter truly settles.
