I sort of laid down a reality check and a challenge to me family this Spring.
My wifey sort of had a family meeting going on to address the need to be more accountable when it comes to doing stuff around the house.
I’m in that group as well. There are plenty of times that I walk into the air conditioner of my lake house after work and all I want to do is sit and do nothing. And that tends to be just the wrong way to go about getting my stuff done around the house. I totally fessed up while in out meeting and vowed to be more aware of my responsibilities and completing my chores each week. It just shouldn’t fall to my wifey to option up the slack after all of us. That’s not honorablenor is it right. While the people I was with and I were on the subject of accountability, I wanted to talk about the Heating and A/C cooling in the house. For years, I’ve been begging, pleading and cajoling my family to suppose before they touch the thermostat. Or maybe be better about instantly closing the front door or the slider to the deck to keep the heat out and the Heating and A/C cooling in. But this time, I just laid it out for all of them. If the people I was with and I can focus enough to save currency on the air conditioner this year, then the people I was with and I can use that currency for a holiday. If not, it’s a staycation and that’s just the way the budget is working out. I’m hoping the people I was with and I can rally around a respected cause in order to get the most significant Heating and A/C cooling savings possible.
