    I can really relate to this post. When we lived outside of Boston, with no air conditioning, my mom and grandma (86 at the time) came to stay for a month after my first child was born. I didn't understand why my grandmother was in such a bad mood for the whole month. Maybe it had something to do with the 100 degree daily heat, and the fact that the only bathroom was up a flight of 15 stairs? One night was so hot, I couldn't sleep upstairs with the baby, so I slept in the guest room, and they slept in the living room, my mom on the sofa, and my grandma on the loveseat. For the whole night. The sacrifices people will make for love is pretty incredible. Now, how about you all put central air in the #1 spot on the to-do list?

    Yeah, not gonna happen.
    1. Our place is too tiny (and there are 3 small buildings that would all need separate units)
    2. We're only here for 2-3 months a year, yes it's the summer months but we are on a lake, where there is usually a breeze. The only people who have A/C here are the year-round people.
    3. I don't want A/C. Even though the heat is uncomfortable, I kind of like it in a weird way. I know that sounds nuts but it's not usually hot the whole summer, just for short spurts.

    I love your place too! Who wouldn’t want to live in a “paradise” like this one? But I guess the downside is it is far from the city. To be able to experience such beauty of nature, you have to make little sacrifices. By the way, you’re fortunate to have parents who go the extra mile to see you and your family. :) This just goes to show how much they love you all.


    What a good place surrounded by dry leaves. I hope i can have some place like that.. Or i'll plant trees beside my house after 10 year or 20 to have million leaves around the house..

    Thanks to the post.
