Life has been legitimately tied up for myself and others ever since my dad was inspected with a extreme illness.
I am an only child so the responsibility of caring for him rests solely on my shoulders. Mom passed years ago plus dad, thankfully lives close by. I do have a fiance plus three kids of my own plus work as well, so you can only imagine how hard things are. I try plus keep up with as much as I can but things are bound to slip through the cracks. My fiance tries to help when he can however he has a legitimately demanding job as well. Anyway, the reason for our recent frustration is the fact that both of us overlooked, or ignored all the signs of our failing Heating, Ventilation & A/C system, even when the kids would come down for lunch plus complain about their rooms being too cold I thought they were just being overdramatic. Even the fact that there were more obvious signs didn’t direct my attention to the fact that I should call someone to check it out. The energy bills were gradually getting higher, the dust build up plus stale air smell in the house, none of it sent up a red flag big enough for myself and others to take action. Maybe I didn’t want to even think about adding another thing to my schedule plus clearing a few seconds to wait for an Heating, Ventilation & A/C worker to show up seemed impossible. Well, that was all taken out of my control when the heating system stopped working all together. All of us came home, after a tied up day to the lake house being around fifty degrees. It was only about forty outside so at least both of us were never in any real danger but both of us needed to have the unit fixed instantly. I sent the kids to the neighbor’s lake house while I waited for the repairman. Boy was I ecstatic it had been a night where I didn’t have to go take care of dad too.
