My cousin called me randomly the other day day to invite me for a visit. She said that she had actually been checking the weather reports and felt too sorry for me not to invite me over. You see, both of us have had a genuinely terrible Wintertime in our area and both of us are still getting terrific snowstorms late into the week of March, meanwhile, where she lives down south, everything is in bloom and they have daytime highs well into the mid 70’s. I told her that I would love to come down but I needed to stay home and monitor my Heating and A/C system instead. It has been having troubles off and on all Wintertime and I was really afraid that if I was out of town, it may chop and cause significant disfigurement to my bank account. She asked me at that point if I had called an Heating and A/C contractor and I explained that, no, although I had a few estimates for repairs already, I couldn’t afford them at this time. Instead, I was really babying the crap out of my method and begging the universe that it lasted the rest of the winter. I would be getting a large tax return soon and planned on using it to repair or replace the failing system. I guess my story was so sad that she had to invite me down.
