Several years ago, my husband decided that we would no longer pay extravagant amounts of money so we could have television.
He cancelled the satellite television service that was costing over $200 a month.
He spent money on an antenna and a system that would allow us to watch television with an antenna. Ever since then, we haven’t had proper television. I feel like I am back in my childhood trying to watch television on a nineteen inch TV that has only four channels. I finally told him he had to do something with the antenna. He decided to put the antenna on the chimney. I didn’t think too much about this until it hit me that the chimney was directly connected to the fireplace. I don’t think he realized how heavy the antenna was until the chimney started to fall. In a way, this was a good thing. The chimney could not have been in very good shape if the antenna had it crumbling. Using this chimney with the fireplace may have been a dangerous thing. I hated using the furnace until it got extremely cold, but I need to use it now. I keep thinking about how much it will cost to have a new chimney put up. I wonder if the chimney damaged the roof. Then I think of the cost of running the furnace all the time for the next six months. I am not a happy camper; and it is all because he wanted cheap television. Maybe I should have him pay the extra $100 the energy bill will cost now that we are running the furnace.
