I’m Getting Used to Getting Things Done by Myself
When the AC in our business office went out in March, I figured that would give me enough time to get everything organized so that I could get someone in to handle commercial HVAC in New York City after my husband passed away. I was married to him for 27 years. He is the person who was really good at keeping everything going at work every day on a timely basis. I closed the business down for 3 weeks, while I tried to figure out what to do next. When I came back I had so much to do.
The person that I was married to was a very good man. I met him after many years of dating the wrong men over and over. I had been beginning to wonder if I would ever find the right person for me. I soon learned that he had been wondering the same thing about his own dating life before he met me. I met him by chance. One particular day, I stopped at a coffee shop, and as I was backing up in line after receiving my coffee, I accidentally tripped, bumped into him and spilled my coffee all over him! After apologizing profusely, we talked for awhile. Soon after he asked me out on a date!
Life was a lot easier when my husband was around. I’m a hard worker, but he was not afraid of anything. So, with that, he was able to get things done much more easily than I do. In May, the weather started warming up. I knew that I needed to call someone to fix the AC before it became very hot outside. I was worried that I would make the wrong decision if the HVAC repairman told me I needed to do certain things to our unit that I simply would not understand. But he was great and walked me through everything.
