Look, my fantastic friend and I totally messed up, and now my fantastic friend and I are facing the consequences, then when my partner and I were having teenagers, our friends kept saying they’d be a handful.
My buddy and I planned to have three teenagers each a year or two apart. That way, they’d actually grow up together, and have a fantastic relationship. Our friends also told us that it would be hard handling 3 toddlers only a year or two apart, but my fantastic friend and I had the easiest time raising our three teenagers. That’s just until they hit their pre-teen and teen years. Oh my goodness! In no time my fantastic friend and I had three moody, irrational teens in the house, and it felt like my fantastic friend and I were always walking on fire. They had so numerous troubles going on, and the once close teenagers were now at each other’s throats. It also felt like my fantastic friend and I were always putting out fires in our home. There is the large blow out of 2021 that nearly sent us over the edge. Teens have odd temperature requirements as they encounter hormones and grow up. And this is what led to them fighting over the control component settings. One time my fantastic friend and I walked into a shouting match in the mud room, and my partner had to raise her voice for them to stop. Our kid complained she was on her period, and it was too overheated in her room. That was crazy since the house was cold, and the women said she was irrational and made them walk around in sweaters while in summer. Well, that’s just how my fantastic friend and I ended up installing heating and A/C zoning in our apartment with small control units in each family room. Then, my fantastic friend and I set strict rules about the temperature settings in other parts of the whole house.
