Frozen Indoors

14 Feb

Frozen dishsoap. I didn’t bother washing any dishes because the dishsoap was frozen. We came out here to North Carolina and didn’t have time to be picky about where to live. The place we’re in turns out to be worse than we thought with heat registers that heat up but don’t share, yet use a tremendous amount of electricity. The landlord of our residence has promised not to make any improvements per the lease terms and this place was in bad shape before we got here. The electric bill is enormous. I’ve turned off all of the heat registers and use a space heater. Every night my family and I huddle in a single bedroom with a single space heater. We have more than one heater, but if we plug it in the circuit breaker will be tripped and it’s lights out. There had been nice weather up until Groundhog’s Day. I can’t believe it, we’ve been jinxed by a groundhog! I woke up and it was 22 degrees outside, likely 48 degrees in our heated room, and likely 29 degrees downstairs. Six more weeks of winter and frozen dishsoap.
