Summer showed up without me even noticing.
Things had been so topsy-turvy at the house, that I didn’t have time to think. It started right after Christmas when the furnace broke. I called the HVAC company. They told me they could have someone at the house by 8 AM the next morning. That was perfect. I wouldn’t need to take off work if he was there by 9 AM. When he didn’t show up by 11 AM, I had to leave. I had to be at work by 11:30. I had a note on my door when I got home that the HVAC tech had been there at 11:50 AM. I needed to call the HVAC company and discuss my not being available and if I wanted another appointment. I called the HVAC company and told them his arrival was 8 AM, and I had to be at work by 11:30. Had I known he was going to be so late, I may have had someone house sit for me. She asked if I wanted another appointment, and all I could think was, ‘DUH!!!’. I said yes, please, instead. How did she think my furnace was going to be fixed? I didn’t have Elves in my basement. Two appointments later, the HVAC company finally got someone to the house. He told me I needed a new furnace and he would need to order one. It is now summer, and I got a phone call to tell me my furnace had been delivered and they would install it in two days. I thanked them for their expediency in getting the furnace, but I said no thank you. I had already called a different HVAC company.
