So of course, the gas oil furnace quit in the middle of the night which required an emergency HVAC repair call
When I get too busy, things simply fall through the cracks. And if the pandemic taught me anything, it’s to slow down a bit and not take on too much. I l acquired this after the office with the zone controlled HVAC was closed due to the pandemic. This forced me to learn to labor from beach condo in our own a/c but it had further reaching implications as well. I found out pretty quick that I had been way overloaded due to our inability to say no. Whether it’s to our family, friends or managers, I tend to stretch myself to thin in order to please or help others. That’s perhaps an admirable quality on some levels but it comes with a downside. The downside is that I tend to end up with too much to get done and not enough time or energy. During the pandemic, while I was working from the a/c of home, so much of that other stuff fell away because every one of us were sort of locked down. And I remember thinking that I needed to maintain a level of less is more when it comes to obligations as nothing was falling through the cracks. Obviously, I didn’t hold to that as I was so tied up this past fall that I didn’t get the HVAC repair done. So of course, the gas oil furnace quit in the middle of the night which required an emergency HVAC repair call. That stung as it was both costly and the HVAC professional confirmed that the concern would have been caught during the HVAC repair.
