This was supposed to be all about turning the page and enjoying the next chapter in our lives. That’s what retiring and selling the family home was supposed to be all about. That’s not at all the way it appears to be turning out. It’s not like we really had all that much of a plan anyway. My wife and I had talked about a lot of different things when it came to us hanging up our careers. It turns out that we ended up doing it at nearly the same time. We both walked out of the commercial HVAC of our offices within months of each other. It’s tough putting a career behind you but it’s even tougher turning the page it appears. Once we were retired we knew that it was time to get rid of the family home. That came with all kinds of renovations including replacing the residential HVAC. That was just the beginning of it really. Once we got things like the HVAC equipment upgrade done and our house on the market, everything else kind of came at us quickly. The house wasn’t on the market for very long before we got above asking price. But then came all the packing and then moving into a much smaller apartment. It made the most sense to rent until we figured out what we were doing next. But I have to say I’m super disappointed with the way renting has turned out so far. The rental office seems to just basically ignore us. So I finally had to call the HVAC company myself in order to get proper HVAC service and repair done on this old HVAC equipment. I’m just going to use it as motivation to make the decisions we need to make so we can own our own quality heating and air once again.
