Before we left for vacation December of last year, my husband did a lot of checking in the house. As far as utilities are concern, he made it sure that no water is leaking inside and outside. He bought outdoor faucet covers to keep the garden hose faucet from freezing while we're gone. Because we left in December, his dad told us that it snowed on Christmas Day. We missed it, but we had a wonderful time celebrating the Holidays with my family back home though.
My husband is really good in taking care of the house.He wanted everything to be in place, safe, and well-maintained to avoid costly repairs.
