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 setback, or a major problem that abruptly becomes apparent, 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 annoyed by the poorly functioning air conditioner in our friend’s truck, and when I realized I forgot the mustard for moderate dogs, 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 undefined method suffering a breakdown. They asked if I was sure I was alright, or if I needed a locale to crash until it was fixed, however that wasn’t necessary! The air quality in our lake apartment was preserved by opening many 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… Since the Heating & Air Conditioning businesses said the repair bill would be a little high-priced, I’m just going to take our time saving up to pay for the repair. The heating and air conditioner supplier that took care of our undefined method gave 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 period without air conditioner as an effort to minimize energy usage! I just hope that the screens on our windows are in great shape, or I could end up with a pest problem. If there’s a single thing I suppose will set me off, it’s having to kill roaches every afternoon!
