Sometimes you have to spend some money (or do something that results in spending money) even though every fiber of your being shrieks, “NOOOOOO!”
It happens. When faced with such a situation, take a tip from a large shoe manufacturer and Just Do It. Agonizing over it helps nothing.
Like, say, when you come downstairs one morning in June and discover that it’s only 58 degrees in your kitchen. Yes, you must turn the heat back on if you don’t want your children to call Child Protective Services. No, you shouldn’t have to turn the heat on in the second week of June. Yes, it sucks. No, whining about it will not help. Yes, oil is expensive. No, it’s not optional if you’ve lost all feeling in the tip of your nose.
