I spent all day outside.
As a roofer I am in all sorts of weather conditions. It’s exhausting work. I’m up at the crack of dawn and sometimes not back home till the sun sets. I work a lot during the summer and less during the winters so I usually take winters off and relax and spend much needed time with family and friends. I am far away from that break though. Currently it’s mid July and it’s been crazy hot out. I have a nice tan going on and I’d fit right in with the people that live in the south. I have my own “man cave” in which I placed a portable A/C unit in it. My family doesn’t appreciate the air conditioning as much as I do. I can’t blame them though. They don’t spend hours in the heat. I need and want it cold in my room. The air quality is perfect. The rest of the house is set to 67 degrees but it’s not cool enough for me. The little unit is pumping air out at 61 degrees. I only spend a little time in this room catching up on a TV show right before the wife finishes up dinner. When dinner is finished I spend the rest of the evening with the family. We talked about our day and my wife asked if I scheduled a HVAC specialist to do the heating maintenance. I know I don’t want to hear that but it is going to be colder soon and we need to make sure everything is up in working order. Just thinking about it makes me dizzy.
