My mom keeps the heating on full blast at her house

I was always lucky enough to grow up in a pretty special environment.

As I was growing up there, of course, I didn’t spend much time thinking about how spectacular the area legitimately was.

Sitting here now, though, the first thing I would say is that my house region has just the most distinct seasons of anywhere that I’ve ever lived. The Winters were pretty cold but the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C gas furnace didn’t run all the time either. The summer season got super hot for a while that required a bit of Heating, Ventilation, in addition to A/C cooling but, again, it didn’t need to run all the time. However, it was the Springtime in addition to fall that was the best. It is strenuous to describe just how pretty those seasons are. I live quite a way from where I grew up now. But, I do go to stay with my parents at their house every Christmas. While I appreciate my folks in addition to I appreciate that region, I would much rather have them come out to see me. Instead, I have to leave my relatively hot home to travel where the snow in addition to cold is. It does give us a much more Christmas-like feel to the season. I just don’t appreciate perspiring my way through Christmas. My mother can’t ease up on the Heating, Ventilation, in addition to A/C settings on her thermostat. That lady insists on keeping the gas furnace charging all day long. It has to be at least 78 degrees in her house at all times. I can’t stand it. I have to wear shorts and t-shirts just to get through it. It’s so weird to be sitting next to the Christmas tree, seeing it snow outside while I’m wearing shorts and a tank top.

My mom keeps her house way too hot

I was always lucky enough to grow up in a special environment.

  • As I was growing up there, of course, I didn’t notice how spectacular the area really was.

Sitting here now, the first thing I would say about it is that our home’s region has just the most distinct seasons of anywhere I have ever lived in the country. The winters were cold but the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C furnace didn’t run all the time either. And the summertime got hot for a while and so that required a bit of Heating, Ventilation, and A/C cooling but, again, it didn’t have to run all the time. However, it was the Spring and fall that were really the most spectacular outside. It is hard to describe just how pretty those seasons are. I live quite a way from our home now, but I try to go back home to our parents’ place each and every Christmas. While I care about our folks and I care about that region, I would much more prefer for them to come to me. Instead, I have to leave our relatively hot and sunny home to travel where the snow and cold is. It does provide for a much more Christmas-like season, though. I just hate being covered in sweat all the way through Christmas because our mother can’t ease up on the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C setting. That lady insists on keeping her furnace running all day and night. It has to be at least 80 degrees in her house. I don’t know if we can stand it. I usually have to wear shorts and t-shirts just to get through it. And it’s pretty odd to be resting next to a Christmas tree watching it snow through the window in our shorts and flip flops.

Snow and flip flops

I personally have to wear shorts and t-shirts just to get through it

I was fortunate enough to grow up in a great environment. As I was growing up there, of course, I didn’t pay very much attention to how spectacular the area truly was. Sitting here now, the first thing I would say is that my beach house where I grew up has just the most distinct seasons of any place that I have ever lived. The Winters were cold but the Heating and A/C gas furnace didn’t have to run all the time either. The Summer got pretty hot for a while, and that required a bit of Heating and A/C cooling but, again, it didn’t run all the time. However, it was the Spring and fall that were truly the most spectacular as far as nature goes. It is hard to describe just how pretty those seasons are there. I live quite a way from my old beach house site now. But, I do go to my parents beach house every Christmas. While I appreciate my folks and I appreciate that region and its beauty, I would like it if they would come to visit me instead. Instead, I have to leave my relatively sizzling and sunny spot to travel to where the snow and cold is. It does supply for a much more Christmas- like feeling to the season. I just don’t appreciate being covered in sweat my way through Christmas because my mother can’t ease up on the Heating and A/C settings. She insists on keeping the gas furnace charging on full blast throughout the afternoon and night. It has to be at least 78 degrees in the house. I don’t know how she can stand it. I personally have to wear shorts and t-shirts just to get through it. It’s so unusual to be sitting next to a Christmas tree watching it snow while wearing shorts and flip flops.

I was fortunate to grow up in a legitimately special environment.

  • As I was growing up there, I didn’t pay all that much attention to how spectacular the area was.

Sitting here now, the first thing I would say about it is that our region has just the most distinct four seasons of anywhere I have ever lived. The Winters were chilly however the Heating & Air Conditioning, with our gas furnace didn’t run all the time either. The Summer got pretty hot for a while and that required a bit of Heating & Air Conditioning cooling. But again, it didn’t run all the time. However, it was the Springtime and fall that were the most spectacular. It is hard to describe just how pretty those seasons are where I’m from. I live quite a way from my home place these days. But, I do go to visit our parents’ home every Christmas. While I love our folks and I love that region, I would rather have them to come to me. Instead, I have to leave our relatively warm and sunny spot where we live now to travel where the snow and chilly wind is. It does provide for a much more Christmas-like feel to the season. I just don’t like dripping with sweat through Christmas because our mother can’t ease up on the Heating & Air Conditioning settings. That lady insists on keeping the gas furnace on day and night, and it has to be at least 75 degrees in her house. I don’t really know how I stand it. I have to wear shorts and t-shirts just to get through it., and it’s so weird to be kneeling next to a Christmas tree seeing it snow outside while I’m in shorts and flip flops.

I was fortunate enough to grow up in a very special environment.

As I was growing up there, of course, I didn’t pay all that close attention to how spectacular the are truly was.

Air conditioner install

We are so spoiled with great air conditioning

Isn’t it interesting how we can be lulled into a familiar routine so easily? It seems as though I can simply roll through my days without paying attention to what is certainly happening. Talk about someone who needs to be living in the moment a bit more! But, just like most of us, I get so caught up with the pace of life plus all that is expected of me. I do my best but, a bit of a wake up call can certainly add some perspective to my life. Our Heating & Air Conditioning failing a few weeks ago sure did the trick. The hot summertime is not when you want the Heating & Air Conditioning to go out, I can assure you. However, I came to our beach house 1 evening plus opened the door to a beach house that was as hot inside as it was outside that day. I could tell immediately that the Air Conditioning had not been on for most of the day. I tested the power and checked all the other things that I knew to check out. But, there just wasn’t anything that seemed to be wrong except the fact that the Heating & Air Conditioning was off. It was after business hours and so I decided to call the Heating & Air Conditioning people in the morning. That was a very hot night for us, and the weather was only getting hotter! The Heating & Air Conditioning tech came the very next day plus after a short inspection told me that he could repair the Heating & Air Conditioning for me. He said that it would be a few days before he could get a specialized part in. When I broke the news to our family, they wanted to go stay in a hotel until the A/C was fixed, which stunned me! We couldn’t rough it for a couple of nights? How spoiled are we?

I find it interesting that I can be lulled into a familiar routine so easily.

It seems as though I can simply go for days without honestly paying attention to what is happening. Talk about someone who needs to live for the moment more! But, just like everyone, I do get so caught up with the fast pace of life plus all that is expected of me. I do my very best. But then a bit of a wake up call can honestly add some perspective for me! Our Heating and A/C failing a few weeks ago did the trick for me. The middle of the summer is not when you want the Heating or the A/C to go out on you! However, I came home to our condo one evening and then when I opened the door, the condo was as boiling hot inside as it was outside. I could tell instantly that the A/C had not been running for most of the day. I serviced the power. Then I checked out all the other things that I knew of. But there just wasn’t anything that was out of the ordinary. It was just the Heating and A/C was off. It was after hours and so I decided to call the Heating and A/C people in the afternoon. Then that was a very hot night. However, it was about to get even warmer. The Heating as well as A/C technician came out to our place the next day. After a very short inspection, he said that he could repair the Heating and A/C for us. But, it would be a few days before he could get a specialized part for us. When I broke the news to our family, they wanted to go stay inside a hotel. That stunned me quite a bit. We couldn’t even stay without A/C for a few days. We are so spoiled.

I find it to be so interesting just how easily I’m lulled into a familiar, daily routine. It seems as though I can simply go through the afternoons and evenings without really paying attention to what is really happening around me. Talk about someone who needs to be in the moment a bit more! But, like most people, I tend to get so caught up with the pace of life and all that is expected of me. I do the best I can, but I think that a bit of a wake up call can really add some perspective. Our Heating, Ventilation and A/C failing a few weeks at our place sure did the trick. The depth of the hot summertime is not when you want the Heating, Ventilation and A/C to go out, I can assure you. However, I came home one evening and opened the door to a stuffy home that was as hot inside as it was outside. I could tell instantly that the Heating, Ventilation and A/C had not been on for most of the day. I tested the power and all the other things that I knew to check out! However, there just wasn’t anything that wasn’t working besides the Heating, Ventilation and A/C . It was after hours, so I decided to call the Heating, Ventilation and A/C people in the morning. Well, that was a hot evening. However, it was about to get warmer! The Heating, Ventilation and A/C tech came over the next day and after a short inspection he said that he could repair the Heating, Ventilation and A/C. But, it would be a few afternoons before he could get the part he needed. When I broke the news to our family, they wanted to go stay in a hotel, which stunned me a bit. We couldn’t tough it out for a few days?

I find it so interesting how I can be lulled into a familiar, bi-weekly routine.

It seems as though I can simply just roll through the afternoons and evenings without genuinely paying attention to what is.

I am someone who needs to be in the moment a bit more! But, just like most of us, I get so caught up with the pace of life and everything that’s expected of me.

The middle of summer time is not when you want the Heating & Air Conditioning to go out, I can assure you. However, I came back to our beach apartment one evening and opened the door to a beach apartment that was as hot inside as it was outside! And I could tell right away that the Heating & Air Conditioning had not been on for most of the afternoon. So I checked the power and all the other things that I knew how to check. But, there just wasn’t anything that was out of the ordinary that I could see except that the Heating & Air Conditioning was off.
