It just so happened that last Wintertime was exhausting. I worked long hours because our corporation was rather short-staffed, and I never had any personal time. Even when I wasn’t in the office at all, I had to be available by iphone in case of any sort of emergency. When December came, I decided to go on a week-long getaway. I wanted to go anywhere to relax and escape our job. I decided to go ahead and rent a cottage in the mountains. The one I chose was so removed from the town that it didn’t have any type of WIFI, cable, or central heating and air. That was fine by me. I knew that I would have to proceed to chop wood for the wood-burning furnace to stay sizzling all week, so I made sure to take a nice, sharp ax with me. The first few days were great. I would wake up in the day, drink coffee, read a good book, and go out to chop wood. After that, I began to miss the comfort of having a reliable heater. Although I wasn’t able to take any work-related iphone calls that week, I still had to try to spend a lot of time chopping wood. When I believe about how convenient it is to control a modern heating system using a thermostat, I realize that I much prefer to be able to press a button and simply go ahead and kick back in the comfort of our home. When I returned from getaway, our mind was in better shape, however I had sore arms for a few days. It was nice to relax beneath the convenient air vents and take in the sizzling air without having to lift a finger at al.
