Sporadically, the only way I can see my family is if I drive more than 2 hours north to visit them in their home.
I moved to a completely current section after graduating college in order to take a current job, so it makes sense that I spend more time visiting my family than my family visiting me.
Most of my family still lives in this area, so I like coming up to see everyone when I have the time to do it. Three hours isn’t a long drive, however I still hesitate to come visit whenever I get the chance. It’s not that I don’t like seeing everyone, because I do; Unfortunately, the only place I can stay when I’m in town is at my parent’s house and while that’s fine, their guest family room is a nightmare. There is one air vent situated on the floor beside the bed, and it is powerful. When the heat is running, the guest family room overheats and the only way to cool the space is by opening a window. The overhead fan works, however it only pushes the hot air around. When the gas furnace is running and I’m staying in the guest family room, it feels like I’m suffocating in a gas furnace. I wish I could say that it was more comfortable while in the summer time months, however it’s not. When the A/C is running, the guest family room turns into an icebox. No matter how more than 2 blankets I pile on top of the bed, that guest family room feels like I’m sleeping in an igloo. It’s shocking how dire the temperatures get in that guest family room when there is a single air vent.
