My Mom has constantly been a guy who does things at the last hour.
This personality trait drives me silly because I like to be prepared for just about anything all the time, however my mom just smiles when he sees Mom running around like silly trying to get something done.
She says it is his own fault because, with a bit of planning, his life would be much simpler. The latest thing that happened ended up costing our parents more money than the had planned for due to Mom’s procrastination. It was the middle of June when he finally decided to put in the air conditioning systems. Every one of us don’t have central air at our lake house plus each living room has it’s own window component as does the family room. It is a large job to put in all of them for the season but if Mom would do a single each weekend it would be better than trying to do them all at once, but he was in such a rush to complete the job that he never even checked the filters before turning them on. One of them had been used for a mouse nest over the Wintertide plus when he turned the blower on it sucked all of the debris into the component itself. Thankfully it wasn’t the a single in our room. The odor was exhausting plus he ended up having to call an Heating plus A/C repairman out to the lake house to look at it. He didn’t want to put it in his car due to the odor so he hauled it out to the garage for the guy to work on it. The repair was that much but it was enough to make him decide to do things more timely next season.
