When my husband and I first got married, we thought that we could actually live on love. We were one of those sweet, disgusting married couples that were just oozing happiness and love. We were like a greeting card, honestly! Looking back on how we used to be makes me laugh and it also makes me a little bit sad. It’s bittersweet now that we’ve been married almost fifteen years! But back when we first moved into our first house, we thought that we had hit the jackpot. We found a cute little house right in the middle of town and it was exactly the right amount of space for us. Plus it was really cheap. The realtor warned us that the house needed a lot of work as far as the HVAC system went. She told us that the electric furnace was super old and that it would probably need to be replaced soon. Of course, we thought that our love could keep us warm and that we didn’t really need a new stinking furnace! When we called our local heating and air conditioning company to have them give us an estimate on a new furnace for the house, we were completely flabbergasted at how much the new furnace would be! I guess we thought that since the house was relatively small, the price should be small for a smaller furnace unit. Anyway, we ended up putting off getting a new furnace and we spent our first winter huddled under blankets next to a tiny electric space heater in the bedroom!
