Dad’s call sounded urgent, but he’d have to wait until I was done with the meeting.
My boss isn’t a stickler with the no-phone rule, but she always says we ask the caller to wait.
The meeting was crucial because we had a new client and his list of demands was long. My boss wanted us to dedicate lots of time to ensure this work was done efficiently. Apparently, he had more work lined up, but first we had to impress him with this opportunity. After the meeting, I called dad and almost fell when he gave me the news. He and mom were moving away and they wanted me to have the house. There were some home improvements to do including adding a new heating and AC system. But, the house would be empty in a month and it was mine to live in or rent out. I had so many questions to ask them and so little time which is why I chose to go home that evening rather than back to my apartment. As we spoke about the sudden idea to move, we also touched on the heating and AC system in the house. Dad told me they have an HVAC system but it was aging. The unit is about 11 years old and it makes sense to install a new one in the house. I’d been reading up on different systems and ended up adding a ductless system in my apartment. I told dad and mom about ductless systems that made it easier to enjoy better heating and cooling with little fuss. If I agreed to stay in the house, I’d end up installing a ductless mini-split AC with zoning. That way, I didn’t have the extra cost of maintaining the extensive ductwork.
