Being an optimist is a bell curve of reactions… If something fairly irritating or disruptive happens in our life, I usually can shrug it off and find the silver lining in the situation… Anything else, whether it’s a minor unnoticeable disadvantage, or a major problem that abruptly becomes obvious, our ability to moderate our emotions quickly falls out and I see red. I still remember going to a tailgating event with some friends, and already being miserable by the poorly functioning a/c in our friend’s truck! When I realized I forgot the mustard for hot pets, I nearly howled into the sky in a fit of rage! Needless to say, our friends are left scratching their heads when I calmly explain our home’s air conditioning system system suffering a breakdown, then they asked if I was sure I was alright, or if I needed a locale to crash until it was fixed, but that wasn’t necessary! The air quality in our lake condo was preserved by opening numerous windows, and tactical localement of fans helped to circulate the air. I’m fortunate to not have dust irritations, so the outdoor dust and pollen doesn’t bother me, and since the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C corporations said the maintenance bill would be a little luxurious, I’m just going to take our time saving up to pay for the repair. The heating and A/C supplier that tested our air conditioning system system provided to let me finance the repairs anyway, so it’s not all bad! While this situation is irritating, it could undoubtedly be worse! Besides, I’ll just see this extended phase without air conditioning as an effort to minimize energy usAge! I just hope that the screens on our windows are in good shape, or I could end up with a pest problem. If there’s one thing I know will set me off, it’s having to kill roaches every afternoon!
