The responsibilities and challenges that come with adulthood can really get me down sometimes.
- When my wife and I had our second child, I took a long look at my life.
I was happy with the progress we had made, and even happier to welcome another healthy baby into our family! Still, my mind wandered later on to easier, simpler times. I still remember when I was seventeen years old, and my buddy and I spent the summer building a custom air conditioning system. My buddy Chris was a real tech wizard! I was always pretty intuitive when it came to technology, but he really knew his stuff – especially when it came to heating and air conditioning. The air quality in his house was always the best, as he regularly performed tune-ups for his parents at their home. Anyhow, we spent an entire summer working on this portable air conditioning unit, just so we could use it in a shed on his parents’ property. In that shed, Chris and I got to work on countless fun science experiments, all with excellent air conditioning and air quality that rivaled my own at my house! If we weren’t tinkering with a project, we were playing video games and being as loud as we wanted to be. Those were great days – especially since my only bills back then were for my gas tank, and my phone. It’s hard to believe how much things can change in ten years! Still, I’m glad I have the experience in my head – especially since I also learned how to tune up a heating and air conditioning system!
