My husband and I have a couple among our friends that we have been growing really close to.
My husband and I are at their house all of the time and we do things together all of the time.
The level of trust between us has really grown strong, for instance, next week, my husband and I are house-sitting for them. They have nobody else who can watch their house while they are gone to visit their family, and they trust us enough to ask us to do it. It was the middle of winter, and their house was a bit closer to my work too! When I first walked in, my friend showed me where the thermostat was but didn’t tell me anything about the heating system or how to set it. Apparently, my friend thought I was capable of handling the programming of their thermostat on my own, but when they left, it felt a bit cold for my tastes, so I walked over to the thermostat and changed the temperature. I waited to hear the heat start to blow out of the vents, despite the fact that I didn’t hear anything. Then I noticed that there were no HVAC vents! It wasn’t until I started to think the floor become very warm that I realized that they had radiant heated flooring. They had decided not to use a heating system, which meant that all of their heat came through the floor. It was a very even heat, and I really like it more than a heating system! Feeling the heat on my toes was awesome! I pulled a blanket onto the ground and just laid there as the heating system heated up my entire body. I kind of hope that they will never come back from their visit!
