2010 IS HALF OVER!!!!!
We need to get our act together here on Dogwood. We need a new water heater (hopefully tankless) .....
It may not be a "glamorous" way to spend a paycheck ... but it'll save us a ton of money in the long run. The one that came with the Dogwood house is almost on its last leg.
We also need to have insulation put in above our garage (below the boys' rooms). They're freezing in the winter, and "very warm" in the summer. The heating / cooling of this house doesn't work equally well on the main floor and the 2nd floor. Alex's room has a ceiling fan, and that seems to help a lot on these hot summer nights, but poor Harrison's room is a sauna. I just took advantage of Lowe's July 4th 20% off ceiling fans sale - and we got (a cheap) one for Harrison's room, and also for the guest room. Hopefully that'll help!
This is the last year (as far as has been announced) for a tax credit on the purchase of energy-efficient things for your house (like insulation and water heaters - storm doors, new windows, etc.). ...... I almost forgot about it, and the year's half over already! Time to figure out how we can juggle around some of our finances within the next several months! ... I am ALL about tax deductions!
