I think that the pleasure and joy of going on a vacation is equally as sad and miserable as coming back from vacation. When you are on vacation you are allowed to relax, and forget about all of the stressful parts of your day to day life. Then when you return from vacation, all of the stress and responsibilities come rushing back to you. Last week when my wife and I returned from our vacation on the southern islands, we were met with this fate. As soon as we walked into our house and dropped off our bags, we noticed that the air conditioning unit was not working. We always keep our a/c unit operating, because we have pets in the house that we have to look out for. After I did some further inspection on the a/c unit however, I discovered that the air conditioning unit had broken down while we were away on vacation. I called over to the HVAC business down the street to see if they could send out an HVAC tech, and they were able to have a man out to help in under half an hour. Unfortunately for us however, he gave us some very bad news. The old air conditioning unit had overworked itself, and had been totally destroyed on the inside. It hadn’t even been an hour since my partner and I had been back from vacation, and I am already having to shell out hundreds of dollars for a/c repairs! I am thinking that this might be a sign it is time for another vacation down to the islands!
