My wife had wanted to have a birthday party for her mother, and it was going to be at our house.
I had nothing against having a birthday party.
I had always liked her mom, but I wasn’t sure if we had room for a lot of people. My wife assured me we would have plenty of room if we held it in the garage. This time of year, the weather was unpredictable. At any time, it could snow or even rain. I had HVAC in the garage, but it hadn’t been used in so long, I didn’t know if it worked. My wife was so excited to throw a surprise birthday party she couldn’t wait to start inviting guests. In the meantime, I was going to need to call the HVAC company and have them do a thorough inspection of the HVAC system. My mother-in-law’s birthday was less than two weeks away. I went right inside and made the phone call. I told my wife that if she heard the phone ring, to make sure she answered it. I left a message to have an HVAC technician give me a call. I headed back out to the garage so I could start getting it cleaned and decluttered. I was near the window when I heard an odd noise. I asked my wife if she had heard it. The phone was beeping that I had a message. The HVAC technician had my address, and he was on the way. Once he inspects the HVAC system, we would know for sure if we were having a party.
