Several years ago, my family and I moved down south so I could take a promotion at work.
My wife wasn’t very happy with the decision and the kids were unhappy to leave their friends and cousins.
My wife’s parents even offered to help us buy a house if I didn’t take the job. It was a tempting offer, but I knew that would cause even more trouble in my marriage. I knew it would be difficult for my wife to leave her mom and dad and the place she knew her whole life. I was honestly surprised that she didn’t put up more of a fight. As soon as my wife and I I moved to this area, we started looking for a house. We found a nice place on 2 acres of property with an above ground pool. The house needed a little bit of work and it didn’t have central AC. Still, it was a great deal and a really nice starter home for my wife and I. About two months after we moved in, the AC in the bedroom broke down. I couldn’t repair the old machine and we had to purchase a new AC unit. I wanted to buy the new AC unit from the hardware store, but my wife found a machine online that was $60 cheaper. It was basically the same machine made by a different company. I agreed to order the AC unit online instead of spending money on the more expensive priced machine from the hardware store. We agreed to pay for express shipping to speed up the process.
