I was starting to get dizzy from watching him pace so much.
The number of steps he had made was equivalent to someone who had walked for two miles.
I made a joke of him making up for the missed morning run, and he gave me a death glare. I understood that there was a lot at stake because the commercial HVAC provider could not get the payment for the commercial HVAC for sale he had made four hours earlier. The money did not reflect on the HVAC company statement. A lot of money was at stake, and I could understand why he was anxious, but the most that we could do was wait. After another agonizing half-hour, the money reflected in their account, and the relief on his face was evident. When we were on the road, we passed our favorite restaurant, which we were supposed to be going to, and the next thing I knew, we were parked outside the home comfort business. I told him I was not moving until he told me what he was planning. That’s when he said to me that after a previous discussion on new HVAC systems, he thought it was time we bought quality HVAC equipment to help with indoor comfort. When we were looking at the heat and AC products, we had only talked about them in passing since we had a working furnace. It was old, but we made sure the HVAC technician did an HVAC tune-up every year to keep it running smoothly. The only thing I was sure we would do was to replace the dial thermostat. He told me he had promised himself that if the incident with the company got solved, we would get a ductless HVAC and a new thermostat.
