Every year, I tend to get the holiday dread. This is something that is sort of counter to what most people else is thinking. While gas gas furnaces are making houses cozy plus people are trimming the tree, I’m wishing I was somewhere else. It’s nothing modern really. Like most children, I enjoyed Christmas plus everything about it. But when our parents divorced, that was sort of the end of our Christmas thrilled. This was mainly due to the fact that our mom now viewed me as the hired help. Plus, she would have the gas oil furnace just blasting as I was up in the cold attic getting down decorations. It was the worst. I would be dripping with sweat while moving furniture, lifting boxes of decorations all because the Heating plus Air Conditioning heating was on the absurd setting. Since then, I have pretty much dreaded Christmas. You’d assume it would be unusual now that I’m an adult with our own family. But no, the two of us still have to make the trek to our Mom’s plus deal with the Heating plus Air Conditioning thermostat setting from hell. This still hasn’t changed. It was so bad this past Christmas that I had to keep knocking down the thermostat setting on the gas oil furnace. But Mom would come right behind me plus pump it back up. It’s her house so, I just gave up. However, this absolutely struck a chord with me this year. On the way south to our home, I just told our fiance that if our Mom wants to do Christmas, she’d do it at our house. That was just the last Christmas that I’m not going to like because of too much Heating plus Air Conditioning heating plus bad memories.
