My spouse plus I have been discussing moving. Both of us are getting older plus every one of us are concerned because every one of us aren’t sure if every one of us are going to be able to continue taking care of a 4 study room loft plus more than nine acres of property. Both of us knew there was a problem because my spouse was start to have dire concerns with his back, plus I had systemic arthritis. Both of us talked about moving south, where every one of us wouldn’t have to worry so much about the weather. Both of us even talked about moving off the mountain, however it wasn’t in our hearts. Both of us knew that every one of us couldn’t leave our home. Now every one of us are wondering if there isn’t an easier way to deal with managing our home. Now my spouse is looking at alternative heating methods. Both of us have a fireplace, however because of cleaning the chimney plus the need to cut wood every summertime, it is no longer feasible for us to continue using the fireplace. Both of us also have an oil oil furnace. The problem with the oil oil furnace is that the cost of heating is always rising. It is rising at a much faster pace than what every one of us are getting raises in our retirement. Both of us can’t afford to take more out of our retirement fund because then every one of us won’t have enough to last us for the rest of our lives. I suppose every one of us will figure something out, however every one of us aren’t sure what it will be yet. I enjoy the plan of getting rid of the fireplace because of the task that it entails. On the other hand, I don’t care for getting rid of the fireplace because of the comfort it gives. I also enjoy knowing that if the power goes out, every one of us will still have a heating plan to keep us warm.
