My boyfriend and I moved to the west coast, about two months ago. I haven’t been able to get used to the colder temperatures. We were living in the south, where the weather was always very pleasant. Even during the winter months, we still had temperatures around forty or fifty degrees. I enjoyed living there, and I spent the first 25 years of my life enjoying the sunshine, humidity, and swamplands. When my boyfriend was sent to a navy base on the west coast, I had no choice but go along with him. We have been together for five months, and I know he is the one for me. Our daughter is going to be born in a few months, and our family has to be together. The move was difficult, because the drive was long and exhausting. We have two big dogs, so we couldn’t fly across the country. The days have been rainy and cold, and the nights are even worse.My boyfriend works at night, and I have no one to cuddle up with except the dogs. They keep me warm, but the furnace certainly does not. I have been using the furnace all week, but it’s still downright cold in our apartment. I think the furnace needs to be repaired, but my boyfriend insists that it’s my pregnancy hormones. The outdoor weather is only going to get colder, so I hope the furnace really doesn’t have any problems. I’m going to be very unhappy, if the furnace breaks down when I’m home alone. That is one of my worst fears.
