Ok, going to university, raising more than two kids, working part time have me a mess most nights just to survive. When my hubby left us I had no choice but to make some major lifestyle changes. Thankfully the kids are all middle school age so afternoon care unquestionably hasn’t been a problem, but, I just can’t seem to remember where everyone needs to be all the time, including myself. I work in the afternoon and go to university at night. Some of my classes are online which helps but there are times when I need to get someone to stay at the apartment while I am away. One night, during class, my iphone kept going off. I was concentrating so I just silenced it plus figured the kids were just arguing or something. When class ended I looked at my iphone and noticed that I have 10 missed calls. I panicked at that point and dialed the apartment instantly. There was no answer so I called the sitter on her cell phone… She said that they were all at our neighbor’s apartment because something had gone wrong with the heat at our locale. Seeing as it was the dead of Winter, heat was a crucial factor. I knew that our HVAC system was seasoned and one day it would need to be replaced. Expenses and time had been an issue, I had hoped to make it through another year before needing to do that. With the family’s intense schedule, I had neglected to even have it maintained for over a year. I called our folks and willingly they took us in for a few nights until the HVAC system could be repaired. I made sure to set an appointment for Springtime to figure out our chances for replacement too.
