I have no family members and I live alone. Unless, you consider pets as a part of the family. In that case, I am a part of a big happy family! I have a total of 8 pets; 5 cats and 3 dogs. I love each and every one of them so much, I do not know what I would do without them. Some people may call me crazy but I would rather have animals living with me than humans. They are easier to deal with and love you unconditionally. Because of this I take every opportunity to make sure my animals are happy and healthy. One time I had a big scare, and I have taken every precaution since to make sure it does not happen again. I decided one winter to take a week vacation to a warmer climate and escape the cold. I left my furnace on of course to make sure my animals were warm, but while I was away the furnace broke down! When I got home, the furnace had been off for a few days and my animals were all huddled together for body heat. I felt absolutely terrible and ordered a top of the line HVAC system right away. I trust that this HVAC system will not break down like the old one had, and I also invested in a mobile thermostat so I can check on temperatures while I am away in the event that the furnace stops working again. I hate leaving my family members alone, but now I feel a little bit better when I have to spend some time away.
