Living way out in the country is great! Fresh air, yellow trees, and the sounds of nature all around.
That is what almost everyone like to tell you about it, however, there are some serious disadvantages too, however like when you run out of milk in the middle of the evening and have to drive twenty minutes to the closest all evening market.
Those are the times when I regret buying my family’s outdated farm house. It is never a quick trip somewhere I go. I have at least half an hour of driving, there and back, and I have to occasion up things at the store. This means that a minimum of one hour of my day is spent on a easy shopping trip. For this reason we try and stock up on things that won’t go bad… It is my task to ensure that we have food, cleaning supplies, clothing, things like that. It is my wife’s task to make sure that we have replacement parts for equipment, lightbulbs, and even filters for the Heating and Air Conditioning system. I hate going to the hardware store so anything that comes from there falls to him. I never entirely guess about any of that stuff however yupterday I had no choice. She is away on supplier so when the alarm went off telling me to change the filter on the Heating and Air Conditioning system I headed to the basement to do that. The complication was, there was no filter to put in, but my wife had forgotten to buy an extra one. The Heating and Air Conditioning system won’t come back on until it reads that a current filter was put in so I had to pack up the teenagers and drive into town. I will tell you this, she is going to hear about it when she gets home!
