Central Air and Heating.

A lot of you guys have central air conditioning and heating in your home. Now maybe you've had this all of your life so you don't realize how wonderful it is to have. I went from living in what one of my co-workers has rencently calls a mud hut to an apartment with central air and heating. So why a mud hut? Well what would you call a place made out of dirt, sand and straw? Yeah mud hut sounds like a good name now huh? At least it had indoor plumbing!

Because my home never had central air or heating and the most I've ever had is either a huge swamp cooler (which did jack crap in the summer which can get 110+) or decent size large window air conditioner I never knew what I was missing. Now that I have moved I know and I do not look back on my memories of the 110+ degree summers or the freezing 30 degree winters with fondness. I know the wonders and joy that 65 degrees does not mean freezing your bum off and having to bundle up. I can now wear what I've always considered spring and summer clothes. I'm sure some of you are thinking how overly dramatic I am making this sound, but I am sure either you suffer like I did without knowing the joy of having central air and heating or you have it and always had. I have come to the conclusion that I will never live somewhere without central heating and air again.

Besides the central air and heating I have remembered the joy of carpet. More then a decade back my mom decided to get rid of all the carpet in my house and replace it with lamenent flooring...on concrete... In the winter the floor would be freezing since it would take on the temp. of outside. No longer do I have to wear socks to bed at night so my feet do not freeze when I wake up.

Over all moving has been pretty smooth. I must admit though I have spent over 400 bucks for things in the house. Like did you know that in order to put up curtain rods in drywall you must drill and put little plastic things so your screws don't fall out? Like I had a drill with a 1/4" drill bit. While having a half bath is very nice having to spend 30 bucks for bath rugs and hand soap was not a highlight. The drawers in our kitchen is shallow so I bought a white rolly thingy with three drawers to be able to put all of the measuring cups, spoons and odds and ends. Just on going really since I've been to Target or Walmart everyday. I love Target, well the one I go to. It's nice, clean and helpful. Walmart on the other hand was a shity hell hole that was just like the one where I used to live...except it had Asians. I still haven't completely emptied all of the boxes. When you're going from 1400 to 952 square feet you're going to have a lot of crap. I threw out most of it when we packed, but it seems we have a lot of stuff, you know things you can't throw away, but you aren't sure where to stick it. I hope to find a home for everything soon.

My "neat freak" genes from my dad are slowly taking over. Ok that's pretty impossible since I'm adopted, but soon enough I'll be the one looking at the dirty light bulb and saying to my boyfriend, "That's dirty we should have the maid clean it." Ok maybe not the maid part, but you never know... I did recently find out how my parents could afford a maid, the nanny was free from the gov. since it was the only way to get my mom to go back to work. It seems everywhere they went they could hire someone for 125 USD a month to cook and clean for them 6 days out of the week. That wouldn't have even covered my gas bill before I moved!!

I want a maid! TT.TT
Yes, I have central air and heating. No, I don't have a carpet--simple hardwood flooring. I used to live in a house though, in the basement no less. Our upstairs neighbors had access to our fusebox and couldn't understand that our electricity bill would not be charged to them. So they kept turning off our power! Idiots...Anyway, my apartment building doesn't allow us to drill holes for curtains. So we've never had them even though we lived on the 27th floor. An aspect I don't particularly like.

Congratulation for the new house! ^-^
I always envy everyone who lived in a four-season country (coz you can see snow and wear winter apparels), but seeing your post about the heater and everything make me grateful that i live in a tropical country. =] I don't need any heater (but on the other hand, Air-con is super important XD ) and carpet.

oh man, i know how you felt.
up until two years ago i lived on a farm with no central heating or air conditioning, other than a wood stove and gas heaters [i have a huge burn scar on the back of my left leg thanks to those heaters] that dont work as well as they should, and a big window fan thing.

i dont have carpet either... our new house only had carpet in my parents room.

and yes, walmart is a shitty hell hole. target is amazing.
