I have had a few setbacks over the past year and at this point, I have ended up moving back into my parents’ house again.
I really never thought that I would have to do that, but I got laid off because of Covid and then things just spiraled downward from there.
I have to be able to get my act back together, but I didn’t have enough emergency money saved up to stay afloat and so now, here I am. I can’t believe that I’m still in this situation, even though I’m almost thirty years old at this point. My parents are really great, but they weren’t really thinking that I was going to be living in the basement at this point in my life. In other words, my parents weren’t thinking about having an adult child living here when they originally built the house and finished the basement! They didn’t really set up the basement for someone to be living down there the way that I’m going to have to. There isn’t even a heating and cooling system set up in their basement. And since there is no ductwork down there, there’s no way for the heating and cooling from their HVAC system to get down into the basement. I feel bad enough as it is that my parents are taking me in, so I don’t want them to have to spend more money on an HVAC upgrade for my sake! I think we are going to end up having a ductless mini split air conditioning system installed down in the basement. It’s fairly inexpensive and it can provide both heating and cooling.
