I’m excited to finally have a chalet up north to visit whenever I need a split from the monotony of our day to day life.
If I had considered this 15 years ago, I would have never believed I could make enough currency someday to own a home, let alone several.
At the time I was stuck laboring tasks that I hated plus renting apartments that looked terrible. You start to wonder if you can ever get out of this seemingly unceasing downward spiral. And it makes me anxious to assume that for some this is a continuing reality, even in the time it has taken me to dig myself out of our credit card debt. I have to wonder if I simply got fortunate enough to have the sort of possibilities in life that were presented to me. However, none of it came without constant hard work on our end. I was laboring 50 to 60 hours a week for at least several years straight while in the toughest stage of our life. If I had simply spent our free time getting drunk plus watching TV, I would have never dug myself out of that hole! Now I have a chalet with radiant heated flooring that is powered by a giant gas boiler in the utility closet. This boiler gets our chalet heated in a matter of hours. But when I leave for a while, I always shut off the water plus evacuate all of the pipes, including our furnace. If water freezes, the pipes can expand plus burst. This procedure is a natural section about living up north.
