We have our first vacation in two years planned and are so excited. We leave next week and I am trying to get the house as prepped and clean as possible so I don’t have as much stress while I am away on this vacation. It is meant to be relaxing – we are going to an island in the Caribbean so the less I have to think about, the better. I was having lunch with my girlfriends yesterday and they asked what I had left to do, what I had already done, just regular questions regarding the vacation. I told them I was basically all deep cleaned and packed and ready to go, just time to play the waiting game. One of my girlfriends asked if I had removed my window unit for air conditioning; I had told her no and asked her why. She told me because of a potential robbery – I was stunned, I couldn’t believe I didn’t think about that! Where I am originally from, we have central air so I never thought twice about air conditioning when I left my house, but ever since moving to New England, I haven’t quite adjusted to the whole window unit situation. Those units are in so easily, that they can be removed just as easy by a robber. When thinking about your homes safety, this isn’t something you often think about! I am starting to really miss my central air system all of a sudden since my girlfriend asked me that questions and feeling really uneasy about my vacation now. Thankfully she brought it up though because otherwise I could have come home to a huge disaster and sad state of a home.
