There I was making dinner, eavesdropping, feeling guilty, and giggling at the same time. Guilty because I set my husband up for a virtual solar consultation without his permission, and giggling because Sean’s presentation was going so smoothly. Sean does an excellent job of making it seem more like a conversation and less like a sales pitch, which works well for Mark. He doesn’t like to be sold anything, and he wants to be in control and feel like he’s making the best decision for his family.
Schools back in session and guess who the teacher is? Me! Never thought I’d ever have to teach my kids anything but morals, values, and making good choices. But insert 2020, COVID –19, and the world being shut down, and here I am teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic! Not to mention transforming my guest bedroom to a classroom complete with desks, chairs, and a chalkboard.
With the kids being at home full-time, my electricity bill has been consistently in the $300 to $400 range each month, which is very uncommon for my family. Typically, the summer months are when we take vacations, so we are not at home for weeks at a time during the summer. Though we’ve saved money by not vacationing, we’ve spent more money on electricity. This is a bit concerning since there is no set date to when we will return to any type of normalcy.
