I love little things including little houses.
I planned on living in a small house for my entire life, but after having four children, it was just not practical to have a small house. My husband and I got a great deal on a house about two years ago. It is a large, five bedroom house with three full bathrooms. The house is nice, but because it is so big, it is expensive to heat during the winter months. We have been using some supplemental heating the last couple of years, and it has made a huge difference. We have three electric space heaters that we use to help keep the house warm. Even though they are electric, they save us a ton of money while keeping the house at about seventy degrees. My husband and I have one in our bedroom, and it keeps our room really warm during the cold winter nights. We wake up some mornings to an eighty-five degree room, and we both love it so much! I did have an issue with my space heater last year, well it was not really an issue it was just a silly mistake on my part. I woke up one morning, and without realizing it, I threw my comforter on top of my space heater. I left the room and came back about three hours later to find that the space heater had melted about half of my comforter. It was totally my fault, but I was super upset about it, and I refused to turn my space heater on for about a month. My husband was really upset about it because he was cold at night without the space heater. I finally got over it, and now, we are using our space heater 24/7 once again.
