When my Dad moved in with us last year, everything was superb for a while, then every one of us were cheerful to have her with us, & she was great at helping out with the kids… Plus, sometimes she even cooked supper & that was great for myself and others since I hate cooking! But then she started menopause & everything changed! The concern was all of the sizzling flashes that she was having. She wasn’t mean or crazy or anything like that, but she was just burning sizzling all the time. The air conditioner bill skyrocketed, & my partner & I couldn’t figure out why. Then both of us realized that it was because my Dad was regularly increasing the temperature on the control unit. She would actually set the control unit as low as it would possibly go! Then our a/c would run all day & all evening, & I’d still catch my Dad with her head stuck in the refrigerator to try & cool off! My partner finally got fatigued of paying the huge air conditioner bills to cool off our entire apartment with our central air unit, & she purchased a little window unit a/c for my Dad to install in her living room upstairs. It’s one of those newer, energy efficient models. She says that with the window A/C unit, she can turn her room into an icebox & just stay in there instead of chilly the rest of us to death! I’m sure both of us will all be ecstatic when these sizzling flashes are over! Especially my mom! She says she can’t even live separate from A/C these days.
