Everyone of my friends as well as myself thought that our children would follow in our footsteps. My friends as well as myself or office drones, working at a computer every single day. I guess the three of our kids grew up as well as realize that was not the type of life that they wanted to lead. When our oldest son graduated from high school, he honestly had an idea about what to do for a career. He was enjoying cooking as well as providing assistance in more than one kitchen. Everyone of my friends as well as myself were not surprised to find out that he wanted to attend culinary arts education classes. The one biggest surprising Factor, happened to be when our daughter finished the 11th grade as well as wanted to get a GED to start technical classes. Every one of my friends as well as myself were very surprised, not only because she wanted to quit school early to receive a GED, but also because of her chosen profession at the time. Our daughter was entirely enthused about the heating as well as air conditioning program in town. Everyone of my friends as well as myself honestly thought it might be too much, but the heating as well as air conditioning program was honestly up her alley. After graduating, she honestly was recruited by two of the top heating as well as air conditioning firms in our city. They were happy to pick someone fresh out of school with high marks in heating as well as air conditioning repair tasks.
Every one of my siblings as well as myself went to live with our Aunt Ruth when we were 15. Our parents were in a car accident as well as everyone of us honestly needed someone to take care of us for more than one month. Our Aunt Ruth lived down by the beach, as well as she was honestly not one of my parents favorite people. Aunt Ruth was always much different than my parents as well as she was kind of a hippie. Every one of my siblings as well as myself did not know much about our Aunt, when we went to live there. She had some beach house rules that every one of us had to honestly learn. The first rule concerned the heating as well as air conditioning program. My Aunt Ruth honestly was particular about the indoor air quality in her beach house. She even had a lock on the heating as well as air conditioning program thermostat. Every one of my friends as well as myself thought this was honestly strange, because she was living alone. Who was going to change the settings on the heating as well as air conditioning program, when she was honestly the only one living in that more than one bedroom beach house. Every one of my siblings as well as myself honestly learned to get along with Aunt Ruth, as well as we learned about her strange quirks. My siblings as well as myself never touched the heat as well as air conditioning program even once.
The people I was with and myself live on with some kids. Speaking not for others, but this is one reason why it’s been necessary to push those youngsters hard. The people I was with and myself didn’t have many open directions, so we wanted our kids to have any path their life could take. The people I was with and myself want them to achieve any type of dream, whether it makes money or not. The people I was with and myself which our kids to have prosperous and very long Lives full of happy times. The people I was with and myself absolutely have more than one child in different types of jobs. Around our cozy cottage, the people I was with and myself have a child who works as a contractor for a heat pump, ventilation, and A/C Equipment Company. The people I was with and myself also have another child who works in the medical profession. Both of our children make good currency, and both of them absolutely try not to stress more than one time during the week. My contractor son is often there to lend a helping hand whenever our cozy cottage has trouble with the heat pump, ventilation, and A/C equipment. His type of business is usually busy all week, and there are absolutely sometimes when the people I was with and myself have to wait more than one day for service on our heat pump, ventilation, and A/C equipment. That’s why it’s great that we have attack of Our Own in the family.
The people I spend time with and some of my friends always like hanging around with my grandparents. My grandparents spent a lot of time taking care of more than one of us, because my parents were horrible drug addicts. They absolutely would go on drug Benders for days, and the people I was with and myself would have to spend days at our grandparents. The people I was with and myself will always remember our grandparents, because they probably saved Our Lives. A few months ago, the people I was with and myself started to work for a heat pump, ventilation, and A/C Equipment Company. At first, the people and myself were absolutely excited, and then even more excited when we found out that we could help our grandparents with a huge problem. They were having more than one problem with the heat pump, ventilation, and A/C equipment. The people I was with and myself absolutely went over one afternoon with our work truck and tried to fix the problem. The people I was with and myself absolutely realized that the heat pump needed to be replaced. Luckily, the people I was with and myself receive a decent discount on all heat pump, phenylation, and A/C equipment supplies. We saved our grandparents and performed the heat pump installation on our own. The people I was with and myself are happy to have a good job, because it means being able to help out our family and friends that were always there when we were kids.
I decided to buy a new electric gas furnace this year. I wasn’t planning on the purchase, however the apartment needed a new gas furnace, and during the month of November, all of the local stores have substantial black Wednesday specials. The toy store was offering BOGO board games and matchbox sets. The local supercenter had 5 dollars video games and 5 blu ray discs. Even the grocery store was offering some crazy black Wednesday specials on pork, chicken, and fish. This year, the Heating and Air Conditioning supplier got into the spirit and had a one morning sale on new gas furnaces. Any buyer who purchased a new gas furnace would acquire free upgrade. That was a significant savings, because the average upgrade fees are well over a thousand dollars. I decided there would be no better time to buy a new gas furnace. I drove down to the distribution center and checked out the available models. Once I chose the gas furnace I wanted, I tied up a time for upgrade. Because of the gas furnace sale, they were backed up on upgrade dates until multiple weeks later. I did not have any choice however to wait. My new electric gas furnace was installed Last week. They honored the upgrade deal, and I was really surprised there were no strings attached. I have a new gas furnace now, and it works great. The Winter season weather hasn’t been terribly freezing yet, however it won’t be long before there is snow on the ground. The new electric gas furnace is going to save me a ton of money in bi-weekly heating bills. I wonder if the Heating and Air Conditioning supplier lost any money in the deal?
Jerry and I have been friends for as long as I can remember. My friends used to tease me that he was my boyfriend, but I never thought of him in that way. I had a friend whom I could count on and trust. Jerry and I were inseparable for quite some time. One day, he started to talk about college and I couldn’t understand why I was so sad. We had been paling around for ten years now, and I should have been happy that he had received a scholarship. A year later, I was looking for an apartment that was close to the college. I was surprised to see Jerry coming up the sidewalk. He wanted to know if I would mind sharing an apartment with him. We moved in two weeks later. We instantly began to realize that we hit it off, when living together. We had the thermostat set at seventy, we had the bills split down the middle and we respected each other. A couple weeks later, I brought my boyfriend home. He was a jock who liked to have the house cooler. He set the thermostat down to sixty-five when we went to bed. When Jerry came home, he set it back up to seventy and he told me about my boyfriend messing with the thermostat. I had to talk to my boyfriend and he got angry and walked out. I didn’t know Jerry was so obsessed with something as little as having the thermostat reset. We worked it out, but I soon found out he had moved because of me. The thermostat was just the point where he realized he wanted me and not the school.
Recently, my father took his experience heating, ventilation, and air conditioning and opened his own contracting firm. He laughed because he had been the one who had sent me to school for graphic arts and website design. He said that now he would be able to use my schooling to help him out. He wanted to be able to design a website and a logo that would bring interest to his HVAC contracting firm. He told me all of the ideas that he had for the logo and left me on my own. What I came up with pleased me, but he was thrilled. We then incorporated the logo into the website, and we were both happy with the looks. It took us a couple weeks to edit and re-edit before we were totally happy with the website and I could make it live. Once the website went live, I kept watching the results and changing the SEO of the website, to draw attention from people looking for a HVAC contractor. Within the first month, his HVAC website had made onto the first page of searches in both Yahoo and Google. My dad was so happy when he got his first job from the website. A gentleman in our town, was looking for someone to redo the ventilation system in his pizzerias. My dad jumped at the chance, and he instantly made his first job acquisition. Over the last year, his HVAC contracting firm has tripled in size and added three additional HVAC technicians. He has four high-profile HVAC contracts to fulfill and he is looking to once again double his inventory and his staff.
When I remember my prom I don’t always remember it as being a great thing to be at. I do remember all of the beautiful dresses and I remember the tuxedo that my boyfriend. I also remember how bad the air conditioning was in the ballroom that we rented for the prom. We arrived in a limousine, and we were early enough to get pictures taken of us as individuals and in a group. Soon after the prom started, we begin to notice a change in the temperature of the room. By the time they announce the king and queen of the prom, We were realizing that the air conditioning system had broken down. Some of the teachers had already spoken to members of the staff about the air conditioning. We were told they were working on the air-conditioning but it was getting so warm inside the ballroom that many of the students were leaving. Eventually, even my boyfriend, our friends and I decided to also leave. Without air conditioning, it was just entirely too warm in the ballroom to continue dancing. We all ended up at one of our friends house and found out that we were having a much better time without being at the prom. At least at my friend’s house, we had air conditioning in the room where we were playing CD’s and able to dance without a bunch of teachers hanging around. I will never have fond memories of my prom, unlike most of the people that I talk to. My prom really sucked.
About a year ago, we had a really bad tropical storm go through our area. We live in the south and this is to be expected. What wasn’t expected was losing our power for a week because of the tropical storm. The storm came through in mid August when the temperatures were still in the nineties and the humidity level was at ninety percent. We had no refrigerator, no cooking stove and no air conditioning. For a full week we were sweating and getting little sleep. We had to cook on a grill outside. We swore that we would not go through another summer without having air conditioning because of a tropical storm. We waited until storm season was over and we started looking for sales on generators. We talked to our HVAC company and asked what sized generator we would need in order to keep our home with power throughout any kind of storm and for any length of time. We opted for a generator that was able to be connected with a transfer switch and the generator would automatically start when it detects that the power had gone off. Our generator ran on propane and we were able to get a large propane tank and all we had to do was to make sure that it was filled prior to storm season. I can’t wait to see the look on my neighbors face when my lights are all on and my air conditioning is running and they are all without power and no air conditioning.
Here we are, it is late October, and I am in the middle of preparations for a category four hurricane. It is expected to expected to make landfall sometime in the next day or so, and we are to get a direct hit. We sometimes forget that our hurricane season lasts from June until December, and we get a bit lax, but Mother Nature is giving us quite a reminder this week. We already have the winds starting and some of the rain. The last time we had a hurricane go through here, we came home to quite a mess. We have some large old oaks in our backyard. One of the oak trees had been ripped out of the ground and it landed right on top of our air conditioning compressor. It tore out our fencing and destroyed our camper. We had insurance on the camper and the fence, through our hurricane insurance. The insurance company told us they didn’t cover air conditioning units. We were pretty sure we would have to replace the air conditioning compressor because the cover was ripped right off it. When we called the HVAC company, it took them about a week to get out to us. We spent a week with no electricity, and no air conditioning. It was July and the temperatures were in the nineties and the humidity was off the charts. We did need to replace the air conditioner compressor and it was quite expensive. That is why we are a bit hesitant about evacuating the home now. If the storm is as bad as is expected, it isn’t like we’ll be able to do anything to change the damage.
