My mother in law was staying with us for a month or so. I really wasn’t looking forward to such a lengthy visit from her because she always complains about everything. The first thing she was grumbling about was the HVAC system. She was asking when we were going to upgrade our HVAC system! She said that we should get radiant heated floors, as that would certainly do the trick. I couldn’t believe she was a guest in our house trying to tell us what we needed to do. Especially with trying to tell us to make such a major investment. One day, I asked her what she was doing, and she said she was knitting a scarf so she wouldn’t freeze to death in my house. She always has such smart comments to make and it really has been driving me up the wall. One day, I bought her a portable space heater so she could keep it next to her to keep warm. She laughed and said, “How is that little piece of junk going to keep me warm?” I just set it up for her and didn’t say a word. She said to crank it up so maybe she could feel a little bit of warmth. I cranked it to the max and not before long, the living room was so hot. She was really loving that heat though so I didn’t bother her. I told her later that I would help her move the portable heater into her room, and surprisingly she didn’t object to that. So I set it up in her room and she had that heater blasting the whole night. I was just happy that it was no longer overheated inside the living room and I could watch some football. My wife thanked me for picking her mother up a heater.
