When my sister asked me if she could move in with me for a few months until she got back on her feet, I was happy to be able to help her. She was going through a pretty rough divorce, and I knew that she wanted her two kids to have some stability for a change. I have two spare bedrooms, so it was no problem getting them ready for the kids. What I did have to do was look up Wisconsin DSL Internet options, because I did not have Internet access at home at that time.
I was very rarely home, and I just could not see spending a lot of money on something that I would rarely use. It also helped that I have Internet access on my phone, but I knew that would not be sufficient for her kids. They are both in middle school, and my sister told me they rely on the Internet a good bit for research for their homework. Both kids are extremely studious, so I knew they probably went above and beyond what is required of them. That is why I wanted to make sure that I had Internet service before they even arrived.
I wasn’t sure where to look for information, so I simply did my search for the type of service I wanted in the area that I am in. The site that I was taken to had so much information on it, and it made me realize just how valuable the Internet can be when it comes to research. I was able to get high speed Internet access for them, and I have even been using it a lot more myself at home. She and her kids have been with me for nearly three months now, and I hope that they stay a lot longer. It’s awesome having them here!
You can tell kids that anything is an adventure. The adults might be freaking out, but the kids will be okay. It was the coldest and windiest day of the year when we had to call heating repair in Essex County NJ to come out and fix our old boiler furnace. Instead of it shutting down, it was running constantly. The old furnace was making popping and groaning sounds. The safety valve popped open for the water tank and blew super hot water into the drains. I am not technically minded at all and could not shut it down.
The technician on the phone told me what to do to cut the gas supply to the furnace that would force it to shut down. I saw all kinds of pipes. There were water pipes going to the registers in all directions. I had to find the gas pipe. He told me how to do it. I was scared, but had to get it done. We called different places for two hours. No one was answering, or they were too busy too help or come out even for an emergency. Then I called this place that does heating repair in Essex County NJ. The technician knew the seriousness of what was going on. He told me that if I could not cut the gas that I needed to call emergency services before the boiler blew since something was seriously wrong.
I turned the gas valve to the off position and the fire went out on the burners. It was so hot in the house that we told the kids to just pretend it was summer. We had the windows open and we were in shorts and tee shirts even though it was cold enough outside to kill car batteries and snap tree limbs. Most people call heating repair to fix a furnace that is shut down making it cold in the house. We had the opposite problem. The tech arrived about an hour later and fixed the furnace in a few minutes. One little part caused the whole problem.
