The thing about my task that is so hard is the fact that I have to transfer 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 task I do and I suppose I sort of signed up for this lifestyle. Each move has come with a promotion or additional responsibilities. This last transfer has come with a sizable 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 my task locations have been in areas where the winter is mild. Plus, 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 my house. The heating and air conditioning furnace seems to run forever and I still haven’t found my new normal when it comes to winter. However, I am trying. The snow and ice are new for me. While I have experienced snow, I have never had to easily live with it as part of my weekly life. So, I am trying to get out of the heating and air conditioning controlled environment of my beach new home in order to get a better know for winter. I have found a new thrill in skiing and 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.
