Sometimes you have to take drastic measures when it comes to saving money.
- I usually let my youngsters do pretty much whatever they want, as long as it’s within reason.
I don’t genuinely ever hover over them or anything like that. I almost always let them have the run of the beach house and so whenever I have to put my foot down about something or other, it always seems to be a genuinely big deal to them. That’s what happened yesterday when I finally had to do something drastic about our heating and cooling system, for the longest time, the youngsters have been messing around with the settings on our programmable control unit. I keep telling them to leave my temperature settings alone because it messes up my pre programmed control machine and I have it set just the way I like it. I want it just like I have the settings programmed so that I can get the most out of our heating and cooling systemâ€¦ However, my youngsters think that they guess better than I do when it comes to just about everything, including the control machine settings! They keep raising and lowering the temperature to whatever they think it should be at any given time and I have completely had it with them. I finally bought one of those locking plastic covers and I put the key on a necklace that I’m never going to take off! I guess it’s a drastic solution, although I don’t care. I am sick of them decreasing the control machine settings without asking me first.
