I was waiting around and feeling slightly antsy. The sunshine was pouring through the windows as I looked out into the deserted yard. Dead leaves had collected on the newly seeded grass. There was a chill in the air, and though I knew the sunshine would eventually warm things up, I started a fire in the woodstove. I waited and waited all the while tapping into my reserve stash of patience. This was not how the day was supposed to go. I had a plan upon waking up…and that plan was quickly changing. So I took a deep breath and decided to make the best of this day. And not long after I had managed to calm down the repair guy showed up to fix a broken heater…two hours after the appointment time.
