Right before this pandemic thing started, I had a new heating and air conditioning system installed in my home.
It was something that I had needed for quite some time.
If I hadn’t gotten the raise I received, I wouldn’t have had the new HVAC system, but my bonus paid for it. Then, a month later, I was spending all of my time locked inside my house. The only people I saw were the delivery people and my fiance, who stood outside and waved at me. I told him that instead of waving at me, maybe we should move in together. We had both been quarantining in our homes. I knew coronavirus had not infected either of us, so he moved into my home with me. Since I owned my home and he rented, it was just a natural move for us. He was going to move in after the quarantine ended and we just pushed the date up a little. I wasn’t thinking about how he would need to bring his dog and cat with him. I had never had an animal in my house, and I wasn’t prepared for the smells that came with them. I didn’t know you had to change a litter box all the time, and the smell made me sick. David asked me about the new HVAC system and how it was working. I told him I loved the new system, but I only wish I had a whole house air purification system installed. The air purification system could take care of the odors in the house, and it could also help to keep the virus out.
