While we were making family plans with all our family members at the last major meeting, my brother had to announce with his wife that they had radiant heated floors installed.
This was exciting to practically everybody in the family, but I knew that my brother just wanted to overstep me because I was certain that we would host the family holiday party at our home.
My brother and I have always been competing against one another for as long as I can remember, that’s just the way it goes with us. It didn’t matter that I already had a nice fireplace at my home with an impressive ductless mini split system with multiple zones, my brother’s announcement all but secured his turn to host the holiday party. It’s something we always do during Christmas break and its usually a very joyous event. I can’t remember ever being at one of these events where everybody didn’t have the most wonderful time. I guess I can say that it doesn’t necessarily matter where the party is held, but I do feel it’s important to provide everybody with their turn. It just irks me that I couldn’t get our home ready this year for the event, because my wife and I had so many great ideas for party decorations. I could have mentioned the fact that we had a new UV air purification system installed, but I was positive that everybody wanted to experience the radiant heated floors more than anything else. It doesn’t matter that we have superb air quality and a system that eradicates harmful pathogens.
