Too Many Furnaces

I just love my husband. Everyone has their quirks, and my husband is no exception. Greg is the sweetest and most loving man I know, and I wouldn’t trade him for the world. He is a great husband and father as well. There is just one thing that he does that drives me bonkers. He keeps everything. I mean everything. He is a pack rat of the extremest sort. We had to sell some of our furniture just to have room for shelves to store all of his things. He collects many different things including, baseballs, fishing rods, and vintage signs, but that doesn’t bother me as much as some of the things that he keeps that cannot be displayed in his collections. One of the biggest sections of the basement is used to store old furnaces from when he used to work in the HVAC industry. From the time he was in high school all the way into his mid thirties, he worked as an HVAC technician, and everytime someone would offer him an old furnace, he would take it whether it worked or not. Even after he changed jobs, he still has over fifteen old furnaces sitting in our basement. I’ve tried asking him to get rid of them, but he just insists that he’ll sell them one day and get a lot of money out of them. I truly hope that he does decided to sell them one day so that we can have that space in our basement back. I love my husband so much, and even though his quirks drive me crazy, I wouldn’t change a thing.
