My husband is a absolutely fantastic guy! He’s sweet and attentive and really a good person, and but oh my lord, he cannot cook at all! This does not stop him from trying, and I never want to tell him no. He absolutely wants to be able to provide for me, and how can he get better at it if I don’t let him try? On occasion the meal is reclaimable, however for the most section the two of us have to run the vent hood to get rid of the terrible stench. The worst is when I have to run the vent hood in the winter, because the two of us can’t open any of the windows or doors without letting snow and sleet inside. However, I’ve noticed that every night the two of us have to get the stench of another scorched dinner out of the home office, it’s constantly incredibly freezing when I go to make some chai or get water later in the evening. It got to the point where I was checking the temperature control on our central heater. I even asked my husband if he had gotten desperate and opened a window, even though he swore he hadn’t. It was my step brother of all people who helped my figure it out. The heat was going out our vent hood! I guess a vent hood can remove all of the tepid air produced by your central heater. In just an hour or two, it can take out a whole apartment’s worth of expensive heat. Now we’re being careful to only run the vent for 20 minutes for the sake of the oil gas furnace; hopefully this will make my husband be a little more careful in the home office as well!
