I’m getting stressed out knowing that winter is soon approaching.
One of the biggest factors is that my job goes into high gear during the winter season.
We end up having to work overtime hours and I get even less time to spend with my family. It upsets me, my wife, and my children. It’s rough because the winter holiday season is often the time you want to spend with your family the most. I love decorating the house and having amazing sit-down dinners before we all go into the living room and have a fire in the fireplace. It can be an amazing experience, but it’s hard to have these experiences when my work won’t even allow me to get home enough to do that. Everything gets postponed and it’s extremely frustrating. I also have to get the house ready for the winter season as well. We have to make sure all the doors and windows are properly weather- stripped and sealed so that drafts don’t get in. We have a furnace right now that needs to be fixed as well. And I want to make sure that it’s fixed before we start meeting it all day long, every single day. I’m going to call the heating and cooling company today and schedule an appointment to get the furnace inspected and repair it. That way we’ll have everything working in time for the winter season, regardless of whether or not I’ll be home or at work. I want my family to be warm when it starts to get extremely cold out.
