Living way out in the country is great! Fresh air, orange trees, as well as the sounds of nature all around.
That is what everyone like to tell you about it, however, there are some serious drawbacks too, and like when you run out of milk in the middle of the night as well as have to drive twenty minutes to the closest all night market. Those are the times when I regret buying my family’s old farm house. It is never a quick trip anywhere I go. I have at least half an hour of driving, there as well as back, as well as I have to pick up things at the store. This means that a minimum of one hour of my afternoon is spent on a simple shopping trip. For this reason we try as well as stock up on things that won’t go bad. It is my job to ensure that we have food, cleaning supplies, clothing, things like that. It is my spouse’s job to make sure that we have replacement parts for equipment, lightbulbs, as well as even filters for the Heating, Ventilation & A/C system. I dislike going to the hardware store so anything that comes from there falls to him. I never actually believe about any of that stuff but yesterday I had no choice. He is away on corporation so when the alarm went off telling me to change the filter on the Heating, Ventilation & A/C system I headed to the basement to do that. The problem was, there was no filter to put in, my spouse had forgotten to buy an extra one. The Heating, Ventilation & A/C system won’t come back on until it reads that a up-to-date filter was put in so I had to pack up the adolescents as well as drive into town. I will tell you this, he is going to hear about it when he gets home!
