I cannot fathom how people manage to have families but still carry out daily duties as normal! It really blows my mind that there are professionals out there with a handful of children and stressful careers and still find a way to be put together and functional. I never honestly thought about these problems before but now that I have a husband, our cat as well as guinea pig, I’ve realized how hard even these minor responsibilities make everyday life. My man and I can never just run off and do whatever we desire, because the critters regularly have to be accounted for. Having pets is especially hard when traveling which is why we wound up transfering the pets down for Thanksgiving. All I can say is that it was a superb decision for our Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C plan and energy bill. I couldn’t decide if I should leave the guinea pig home alone for a week or take him with us. Leaving our pet behind would mean we had to heat our whole house. Our home is three bedrooms and three levels so it’s not energy efficient to modify the air temperature throughout every empty room. In the end, I was too concerned and decided to bring the little fella to the sizzling sunny state. It was only on our way back home that I realized how much money we had saved by turning our Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C plan off for that week.
