I love the cool mornings and crip air of Autumn. To be honest, I really enjoy every season of the year except for the Spring. Springtime used to be my favorite time of the year because of the start of new life and all of the excitement that springtime brings. My love for Spring stopped when my husband and I moved way up North to live near his parents. The Springs in the North can be described in one word “crazy.” One day it’s warm out and you think summer is nigh, but the next day, it’s snowing. My poor house can’t take all the temperature changes. The furnace is on for two days then the air conditioner is on for a week then back to the furnace. It always seems like a crazy unending cycle. Not only are the temperatures wacked, but the heavy amounts of rain make everything muddy and damp. I have to run my dehumidifier 24/7 during the springtime in order to keep the floors from getting damp and slippery. My husband decided that instead of having to turn the furnace on so often during the crazy Spring months, we should use small electric heaters in our bedroom and just dress warm during the day. We tried that for a week, and by the end of that week, he turned the furnace back on. It amazes me how the temperature can go from the upper thirties to the seventies and back down again all in one week. I know it’s simply a part of life for us, but I wish we could find a way to keep the house at the right temperature without having to switch between the heater and air conditioner all Spring long.
