The moment that the iphone rings in the middle of the night, I cringe.
- I don’t suppose I have ever gotten a nice new iphone call after midnight.
However, there have been a few late night drunk calls from old university buddies that have started to come in. But there is just something disconcerting about any sort of problem that happens at night. I’m not really sure why this is but I’d guess it’s some sort of DNA primal reaction. I like to set the Heating, Ventilation and A/C and then clear our mind for the rest of the night. Sleeping soundly is 1 of those things that I just have to do to balance myself. The work I do is really stressful plus our colleagues are all mostly type A personalities. So there is a good amount of conflict plus chaos at the office. When I walk into our comfortable Heating, Ventilation and A/C controlled home, that is step 1 in the decompress setting. The last mode is myself and others setting the Heating, Ventilation and A/C and then crawling into bed. The other night brought about a heart thumping scare that I haven’t had in quite some time. A big noise came from the basement which woke almost everyone in the house. By the time I got down there, the furnace had shut down plus there was a weird stink in the air. Immediately, I started kicking myself over and over. 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 wallet plus in the 6 years the scare took off our life.
