Working out schedules can be challenging when you are married to a heating and air conditioning professional. It’s one of those things I have learned the difficult way, after being married to an heating and air conditioning professional, for the past 20 years. We have had to learn how to work things out between us over the years. He is always working whenever I think he shouldn’t, although he always says he can’t help it. I think he has to go to task whenever his boss says that he has to, but sometimes I suppose that he volunteers so that he will have to go. Sometimes I think he wants to get out of family parties, especially when it’s something we are supposed to be doing with my family. I think that he isn’t uneasy about getting out of some of the family meals and parties that my side of the family has sometimes. My husband doesn’t even try to hide the fact that he would rather not participate in things like this most of the time. I know heating and cooling professionals have to be on call once in a while, so I usually just let it go whenever he says he has to work. I try to stay out of it, and try not to fight with him about it – unless I just can’t help it. But the scheduling thing is truly difficult sometimes. Heating and air conditioning professionals truly have to work a lot of hours, and we have to plan around that sometimes.
