The other day when my friend and I were at our house waiting for the heating, ventilation, and A/C worker to get there, my kids definitely started to get on my nerves.
They were fighting with each other and making messes all over the site. I finally just ended up sending them outside. Usually, I do not send them outside when they are getting on my nerves. I do not want them to think of the outdoors as being a punishment. However, this time, I certainly did not care. My friend and I had all been getting on each other’s nerves for the past few mornings because the air conditioner wasn’t working and my friend and I were all hot, sweaty, and grumpy because of it. I personally do not do well whenever the air conditioner is not working because it just puts me in a bad mood. I do not like being tepid and sweaty more than just about anything else. Furthermore, I know that I have not had very much patience over the past few mornings since the air conditioning stopped working. Anyway, while my friend and I were waiting for the heating, ventilation, and A/C truck to arrive to repair the air conditioner, I finally gave up and sent the kids out to play. It wasn’t even a very nice day outside, but at that point, I did not care. I was so sick and tired of their bickering. I was very relieved to see the heating and cooling repair truck pull in the driveway that day, that has for sure! Thank goodness, the heating, ventilation, and A/C worker was able to repair the central air conditioner in the house that day.
