A few weeks ago, my dear husband decided he wanted to go back to school and pursue a teaching degree focused on early childhood education, however his choice to return to school was born from an obstacle course of factors that would make others turn away or give up, and yet he persisted! I’m proud of my husband for going back to school, despite working full-time and tending to our six week old baby. Yes, his stubborn will has often guided him through any number of life’s struggles. However, that same stubborn willpower has contributed to quite a few of our struggles as well! Last year, we were dealt a heavy financial blow when the air conditioning in our home stopped working. It would still circulate air, but the incoming air was warm, and almost sticky if that makes sense. I thought the air filter just needed to be changed, but even the best HEPA air filter made no difference to our indoor air conditions at that point. My husband refused to spend money for the necessary repairs, and said that it wasn’t warm enough to justify needing the repairs, and what my husband failed to consider was that it was only May! We were due for some horrendous and hot weather over the coming summer, but he insisted it could wait. Before long, I was at a point where I couldn’t take it anymore. I set up a service visit myself, and had the HVAC specialists at our lake house only a day later.just so my husband didn’t have to worry about the costs, I was able to finance the repairs and make payments. I would’ve paid for the repairs in full though, if it meant having the air conditioning fixed and ready to blast chilled air!
