I do vaccinate my dog. She occasionally stays at a wonderful kennel on a sheep farm and current vaccines are required.
How often do you change your furnace filters? We change ours at least twice a year. A clogged filter can impair efficiency. Or your furnace may been in need of servicing.
It sounds to me like your current co-sleeping situation simply is not safe.

I got my garden soil mix form a local company. I put it in the raised beds last August. Everything rested over the winter (except the garlic bed), and I planted in the spring. Later when I went to a local organic gardening center the owner asked how my garden was doing. When I...
