We have a couple among my friends that we have been getting very close to! We 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! For instance, this month, my wife and I are house-sitting for them.
They have no one else who can watch their house while they are gone on vacation, and they trust us enough to ask us to watch it. It was the middle of winter, and their house was a bit closer to my work too! When we first walked in, my friend showed me where the thermostat was located but didn’t tell me anything about the heating system or how to set it. Apparently, she thought I was capable of handling the settings of the thermostat on my own, and 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 air conditioning start blowing out of the vents, but I didn’t hear a sound. Then I noticed that there were no vents! It wasn’t until I started to feel the floor become super warm that I realized that they had radiant heated flooring. They made the choice not to use a gas furnace, which meant that all of their heat came through the floor via radiant flooring. I really liked the radiant flooring, I liked it more than a gas furnace! Feeling the heat on my toes was great! I pulled a blanket onto the ground and laid there as the heating system heated up my whole body. I kind of hope that they never come home!
