The thing about our work that is so hard is the fact that I have to transport myself so often. I rarely get to stay somewhere for more than a few years before I am assigned to a new region. This is normal for the work I do and I suppose I sort of signed up for this lifestyle. Each transportation has come with a promotion or additional responsibilities. This last transport has come with a large pay raise. But, I am struggling with an HVAC situation. The thing I’m dealing with is the fact that I have to have so much HVAC heating in my life now. It’s the worst winter weather that I have ever had to deal with thus far. Most of my work locations have been in areas where the winter is mild. I grew up in a region where winter meant having to put on a jacket and long pants every now and again. Now, I am in a location where I don’t even want to leave the HVAC heated protection of my house. The HVAC oil furnace seems to run forever and I still haven’t found my current 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 legitimately live with it as an area of my monthly life. So, I am trying to get out of the HVAC controlled environment of our home in order to get a better assumption for winter. I have found a current 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 HVAC whenever I can.
