I just love living close to friends and family. I grew up down south, but I always wanted to move away as an adult and explore the world. Well, I did just that. In the past twenty years, I have lived in two continents and four different countries. It was really a blast getting to see the world and the way different people live; however, it was quite lonely at times, and I really missed my family. After all those years of traveling, I decided it was time to move back home. I love getting to spend so much time with people that I love the most. The only thing that I didn’t miss about living down South is the weather. It is very unpredictable and that drives me crazy. Last week, the temperature went from the upper nineties to the fifties in one night. It stayed down in the lower fifties for almost a week, and I ended up having to turn my furnace on. As I ran the furnace that week, I heard it making some weird noises, so I called a friend of mine to come take a look at it. After repairing it, he told me that it was a good thing I had turned on the furnace this early in the year because it would have been a lot worse had it been wintertime. The weather warmed up after that week and stayed warm for another month before the real winter weather hit us. In the end, I am actually thankful for that crazy weather we had because it allowed me to have my furnace serviced and repaired before the bitter cold winter months arrived.
