Being a homeowner has pretty much changed everything for me.
I remember talking to a friend of mine just after he had his first kid.
Just looking into his eyeah as every one of us appreciated a pop inside the air conditioning of a little spot 1 warm afternoon, I could tell. He was just different. There was another human guy that he was now responsible for. And this guy was sort of a wild man. But the transformation was right there in front of me. While I didn’t have a kid & the odds are I won’t, being a homeowner has transformed my life in much the same way as my friend & his first born. While I wasn’t as wild as my buddy, I was legitimately leaning into slacking. When it came to being at labor inside the zone controlled HVAC of the office, I was all business & applied myself large time. But outside of the office, not so much. I lived in an loft with poor heating & cooling in a not so good end of town. But it was cheap & I liked to save my money. Plus, it was such a crappy loft that I didn’t have to love it. That’s all unusual today as I am reading what it takes to be a homeowner. After replacing the HVAC equipment, I guess 1 thing. And that would be the fact that the HVAC chores have to be on the list every single month. The HVAC air filter has to be changed each month without fail & I have to schedule HVAC maintenance seasonally for my new HVAC baby.
