I was so proud of my oldest son! He had a rough time getting through high school, and an even rougher time afterwards. He didn’t want to go to college right away, but he also didn’t want to go to work either. Unfortunately, that’s not the way the world works. I told him he either had to make a choice. He could go to school, get a job, or move out. He picked school, and his graduation was just last week! Unfortunately, the party was almost ruined by my old air conditioner. We had been planning the big party for months, and honestly should have foreseen something going wrong with our heating and cooling system.Both the furnace and the air conditioner had been acting strange for quite a while. We didn’t want to spend the extra money on regular HVAC system maintenance. Well, we had to pay the price for that choice. On the day of the party my air conditioner completely stopped working. It wouldn’t have been such a big deal on any other day. The temperature was up to 102 degrees that day though! So, the lack of air conditioner caused all the guests to sweat profusely. It was very uncomfortable day to say the least. Not only that, but the air conditioner repair ended up costing me a lot of money. If I had gotten the HVAC system maintained on a regular basis, I would have saved myself a whole lot of cash. The party may not have been a success, and the HVAC system may have cost me some money, but at least my son had successfully graduated!
