My dad is always traveling for work.
He is normally gone for about three weeks out of every month and I don’t know how my mom deals with it.
I feel bad for her most of the time because she had to take care of everything around the house without any help from my dad. I try to step and help out as much as I can, but my mom still feels overwhelmed with everything that needs to get done. My mom told me last week that she was going to have to call an HVAC company to come out to the house and change the oil filter for our furnace before it got cold outside. I knew that calling an HVAC company to come out to the house would be expensive, so I told my mom I would try to figure out how to do it own my own. I watched a couple of videos on how to change the oil filter on your furnace and it really didn’t seem like it would be too hard to do. So I went down to the basement to try and change the oil filter on our furnace. I was surprised that it only took my thrity minutes to finish changing the oil filter because most of the videos I watched said it would take much longer. I told my mom that she didn’t need to call the HVAC company because I was able to figure it out. I don’t think my mom has been that happy in a while. I just hope that my dad comes home soon so he can start doing things like this for her around the house.
