It wasn’t a terribly expensive place because I was already out of a lot of money, but it was refreshing to have an enjoyable evening with my wife for a change
I have been really kicking myself for not getting my HVAC system tune-up before the winter. Because of this, our HVAC system experienced some serious problems. We weren’t able to wait to get the regular repair services, so we ended up paying a small fortune for HVAC system emergency repair. While it was great that we were able to get our furnace working good again, I have been so frustrated since this situation could have been avoided very easily. My wife keeps telling me that what’s done is done and it’s not like I can change the past. She says it’s not healthy to dwell on it because I’m only causing myself to be more stressed out. I think she’s right, it’s just really difficult for me to get past this. She even reminded me of this old quote by Will Rogers, “Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today”. It was an appropriate quote because by dwelling on this issue, I was just wasting my time and we weren’t able to enjoy the days nearly as much because of my sulking. I finally decided that I could get over it, and I took my wife out to a lovely dinner. It wasn’t a terribly expensive place because I was already out of a lot of money, but it was refreshing to have an enjoyable evening with my wife for a change. I finally was able to start laughing again. I knew that my mistake would be a lesson that will stay with me, and I would not make the same mistake again so I really didn’t have much to worry about moving forward.
