If someone happens to ask you what you want for the new year, then just tell them you want a new fireplace! If you’re like me, then you love the way a wood burning fireplace improves the ambiance in your house.
I was dreaming of getting a fireplace this past year, but my husband told me that our budget just would not allow it. We have had a really rough year this past year, what with all of the Covid shutdowns, and so I knew that I probably wasn’t going to be able to get my fireplace for Christmas like we had originally planned. Our house didn’t have a fireplace of any sort when we moved in and my husband has been promising to get one installed for me ever since we moved into this place. Of course, things have happened since then that have kept us from actually following through with that plan. My desire to have a fireplace in the house has been overshadowed by the need for us to actually have a house, and food, and heating and air conditioning over the past year. Not to mention keeping up the payments on our cars. It’s been a rough year, but we are doing a little bit better now. I think that in another few months, we might actually be dug out of the hole that we have been in and we can get back on track to saving up our money to get my fireplace put in at long last. Maybe by next Christmas we will be sitting around a wood burning fireplace!
