I’m afraid that she’s going to be super cold and miserable, but I also know that my husband and I are not going to be able to live without A/C for any length of time, either
My mom has decided that she is going to move in with us next month, but I don’t know if it’s the best idea that we’ve ever had. I mean, I do want to help her out, of course. She just had knee surgery and she needs a little bit of help until she’s up and going on her own again. Plus, we have a ranch style house so she won’t have to worry about climbing the stairs while she’s here. Well, there’s only one real problem that I can foresee about having my mom living here for the next year or so. The problem is that my mom is cold literally all the time and she hates using the air conditioning. She barely ever uses the central A/C that she has in her house, and her cooling bills are basically non-existent during the summertime. At our house, by stark contrast, it is always freezing. My husband and I are really hot natured and we love running the air conditioning. During the summer, our cooling bills are through the roof. I don’t know how that’s going to go with my mom living here under the same roof. I’m afraid that she’s going to be super cold and miserable, but I also know that my husband and I are not going to be able to live without A/C for any length of time, either. There’s just no way that we are going to be able to live through the summer without our beloved central air conditioning going almost all the time.
