The thing about my job that is so tough is the fact that I have to move so often.
I rarely get to stay anywhere for more than a few years before I am assigned to a new region.
This is normal for the work I do and I think I sort of signed up for this lifestyle. Each move has come with a promotion or additional responsibilities. This last transfer has come with an impressive pay raise. But, I am struggling with the heating and air conditioning situation. The thing I’m dealing with is the fact that I have to have so much heating and air conditioning heating in my life now. It’s the worst winter weather that I have ever had to deal with thus far. Most of our job locations have been in areas where the winter is mild. I grew up in a region where winter meant having to put on a sweater and long pants every now and again. Now, I am in a location where I don’t even want to leave the heating and air conditioning heated protection of our house. The heating and air conditioning oil furnace seems to run forever and I still haven’t found our current normal when it comes to winter. However, I am trying. The snow and ice are current for me. While I have experienced snow, I have never had to truly live with it as part of my daily life. So, I am trying to get out of the heating and air conditioning controlled environment of our cabin in order to get a better feeling for winter. I have found a current thrill in skiing and I am not even hating the snow removal rituals. However, I will not be going far from being able to get inside the heating and air conditioning whenever I can.
