There are times when I can not pay enough attention to just how great I actually have it.
I imagine that I am not alone in that.
It feels as though there is just so much to get done that living my life gets left off the list. This is unfortunate but pretty normal I gather. We are all going a hundred miles per hour in order to provide for our families. The HVAC cooled home has become a sanctuary for me. I tend to get home and sit in the HVAC controlled comfort to just zone out a bit. I then catch myself not paying enough attention to what is going on with those I love around me. Really, it just comes down to wanting a respite from the maddening grind that is my work day. Now, I am going out of my way to change that behavior. Rather than just zonking out in the HVAC, I am engaging with life a bit more. I am so fortunate to have a beautiful family who are just such good souls. They are so interesting and engaging that I am in a bit of awe. This has been sort of weird for them since they haven’t been accustomed to seeing Dad smile during the week. It’s still a work in progress but, I’m getting there. So, as a treat to my awesome family, we upgraded the HVAC in our home to a zone control situation. Now, there are 6 separate HVAC zones so everyone can find that perfect HVAC comfort that they would like. It’s really something that I am glad to do as they deserve all good things.
