The pandemic blew up our lives as it did with so many other people.
But it could have been far worse.
There are so many people out there who lost people and are struggling with that new normal. My new normal was much less traumatic. But it still wasn’t so easy. We had to leave the zone controlled HVAC of the office downtown to work from home in our own air conditioning. That was one of the major things that was tough to deal with. I’ve never exactly been the sort to stick to the central air conditioning of my home. I love my home and I’m super thankful to have the quality heating and air that we do. Without the HVAC equipment we have, it would have been a lot tougher to deal with working from home. But another part of the last couple of years is that I just couldn’t leave the air conditioning of my home to go do whatever I wanted to do. And one of those things I loved to do was to go for dinner with my wife. Finally, once we were vaccinated, and the number of the cases dropped, we decided to go to dinner. This turned out to be a bit of a big disappointment and it wasn’t the food or the service. It was the HVAC inside the restaurant believe it or not. The air conditioning was so weak that I was sweating before I even was able to take a bite of the appetizer. It was so bad that we ended up calling it a night at the appetizers.
