The moment that the phone rings in the middle of the night, I cringe.
I don’t believe I have ever gotten a nice new phone call after midnight. However, there have been a few late night drunk calls from old school buddies sprinkled in there. However there is just something disconcerting about any sort of problem that happens at night. I’m not entirely sure why this is but I’d guess it’s some sort of DNA type of reaction. I love to set the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C and then clear our mind for the rest of the night. Sleeping soundly is a single of those things that I just have to do to balance myself. The labor I do is entirely stressful and my close colleagues are all mostly type A personalities. So there is plenty of argument and chaos at the office. When I walk into our comfortably Heating, Ventilation, and A/C controlled home, that is step a single in decompress mode. The last mode is myself and others setting the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C and slipping into my bed. The other night brought about a heart thumping scare that I haven’t had in quite some time. A huge noise came from the basement which woke all the people in the house. By the time I got down there, the furnace had shut down and there was a different smell in the air. Immediately, I started hitting myself. This past fall, I forgot to have the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C tech out to maintain the furnace prior to the onset of winter. Now, I was paying for it both out of our money clip and in the 6 years the scare took off our life.
