My mom was actually ecstatic about the idea to be able to transfer closer to her grandbabies.
She has been talking about moving her life near us ever since our oldest was born.
That was 5 years ago. I never thought she would ever do it though. But, she did. I helped her find a house once it was clear she was finally going to make the transfer this time. I found a nice little house only a mile or three from our house. The only thing I didn’t appreciate was the gas furnace. It has a cool old hydronic oil furnace with radiant heat. I remember my old middle school had those types of modern eaters. There were radiators in every class room as well as they got actually hot. As my sweet mom is getting older I felt that that sort of heat might be dangerous for her. What if she somehow accidentally left a book on a single of the radiators? So I was about to disregard that entire condo until I found out that you can use the hydronic oil furnace to heat radiant floors instead of using the radiators. It is still radiant heat however it is much safer. I talked to my mom about all of this as well as you know, she was completely on board. She likes the little house although she hates the existing flooring anyway. She is also not a big fan of having big radiators all throughout the whole house. She told me she has always wanted heated flooring though. My mom moves in in a week as well as both of us are all actually happy for the move.
