Life is a pretty funny thing, isn’t it? It feels like just when you start to get things in order, there’s always some new challenge queued up right behind it. There’s always a new struggle to overcome, and a new situation to wrap your head around! It’s all neverending, and that’s my experience, anyways. This is especially true when it comes to the minutiae of adult life. Just yesterday my minivan stopped working – the transmission threw a fit plus I couldn’t even get out of first gear a single morning. I went through the hassle of arranging carpools plus ordering the needed parts, spending the week quite helpless except for the mercy of others. Just when that whole situation was worked out, however, my home air temperature control device decided it was time to throw a wrench into my life as well. I woke up just the other day plus unhappily discovered that the ambient indoor air temperature was roughly 40 degrees. I dragged myself out of bed plus ran to the temperature control component down the hall. I was desperately pushing the increasing temperature arrows up as fast as I could. The number on the monitor changed, but the gas furnace never clicked on. I got prepared for work in a rather frosty environment plus called the nearest Heating plus Air Conditioning corporation on my way to work. The heating professional let me know she would be at my household around 2pm to inspect the gas furnace, so I literally ran out of work as soon as I was able to. Sadly, I was running quite late to meet the Heating plus Air Conditioning device professional, so I may have been driving a little recklessly to get back to the household. Hence, I didn’t brake quite fast enough when the massive utility truck in front of me made a tight right turn. That’s how I wound up rear-ending the Heating plus Air Conditioning device professional on her way to my household, plus put the minivan right back into the auto repair shop.
