Going out in our early twenties was a breeze.
We could go out, and the following day we would attend our classes, go to work in the evening, catch a few hrs of sleep and be as fresh as a daisy the next day.
But things are very different in my thirties. One Friday night out, and I will pay for it the whole weekend. Last Friday, I went out with my friends, and I could barely get out of bed on Saturday. The cold woke me up, so I dragged myself out of bed to the thermostat. I did not understand why the furnace had switched off, and when I switched it on again, it switched off after a few minutes. I just put on a sweater, added an extra duvet, and continued sleeping. I called the heating dealer at around noon on Saturday. After inspecting the heating device, the heating technician informed me that I had neglected to do heating maintenance, which could have easily prevented the breakdown and saved me the cost of the heating repair. It was true that I had overlooked heating equipment, but I always ensured that I checked the ductwork and every once in a while for leaks. I only called the heating dealership for repairs, air filters, and other such things. I could get away from a/c care, but the electric heater had other plans. I also heard the HVAC professional talk to someone on the phone about HVAC installation and a contemporary fireplace design. I was curious about the design, but the desire to go back to bed was more potent, and I could not wait for her to finish, get into the heating company truck and leave.
