The Never-Ending Repairs and Winter Woes: A Hysterical Farmhouse Adventure!

Welcome to my blog, fellow adventurers! Today, I want to take you on a whirlwind journey through the joys and challenges of living in an old farmhouse that seems to have a mind of its own. From wood-splitting escapades to questionable electrical wiring, we've got it all. So, buckle up and get ready for a hilarious ride!

1. The Chilly Rollercoaster:

Living in an old farmhouse is like riding a rollercoaster of temperatures. One minute, you're sweating buckets in your shorts as the sun blazes high above. But as soon as the night falls, you can feel the chill creeping into your bones. Luckily, we have a trusty wood stove and tons of wood to keep us warm. The only hiccup? All that wood needs to be cut into smaller pieces that fit inside the stove. Cue the desperate plea for my son's sports season to end, so my hubby and he can tackle this never-ending task. I'm ready to retire my lumberjack dreams, thank you very much!

2. The Furnace Fiasco:

Now, let's talk about the furnace. Ah, the joy of turning it on just long enough to knock the chill off my nose and toes when the temperature dips into the 30s. But this year, the furnace tune-up came with a hefty price tag of $1500! Can you believe it? And here's the kicker: we'll be lucky to squeeze out just two more years from this ancient 1972 furnace. It has served its lifespan and then some. So, while I dream of a cozy, efficient furnace, I'll continue to channel my inner Eskimo and layer up for survival.

3. The Haunting Handyman:

If you think the furnace dilemma is the end of our repairs, think again. Our farmhouse is a treasure trove of quirky surprises. It's like a puzzle that demands constant attention. Case in point: the electrical wiring wrapped in fabric. Yes, you heard that right. It's a charming reminder of a bygone era when fabric was the go-to insulator. Oh, the joys of living dangerously! So, if any licensed handyman out there is up for an adventure, I have a honey-do list to rival all honey-do lists. Let's barter, my friend, and negotiate terms of trade. I'll provide the list, and you bring your skills and enthusiasm. Deal?

Living in an old farmhouse is never dull, my friends. From the wood-splitting Olympics to the furnace fiasco and the fabric-wrapped electrical adventures, there's always something to keep us on our toes. But hey, it's these unexpected moments that make life hilarious and worth sharing. So, here's to all the farmhouse dwellers out there, bravely navigating the maze of repairs and laughing along the way. Cheers to the never-ending adventure of homeownership!
