I knew right away when my partner walked inside the central a/c of our residence that there was something up.
She has a way of sort of looking at me with her head tilted a bit.
This is a clear sign that she has something difficult to discuss with me. The wonderful thing about that look is I generally am able to know that nobody’s dead or something tragic has happened. On those occasions my partner is usually extremely emotional. So when I get that sort of look where she is kind of looking down, however looking at me at the same time, I am totally aware that she needs to have a conversation… And this conversation was a tough one. My partner had been informed inside the executive conference room with its own thermostat that she was being transferred… Of course, they presented it as though this was a request when it really wasn’t. My partner had been given a couple of afternoons to figure out just what she wanted to do. To me, it was definitely clear that she wanted to take this new position that came with relocation… But we had just put down roots & bought this residence. We’d also done renovations which included getting the latest in Heating & A/C technology. I work from my residence so I can work wherever she is despite the fact that I actually did not want to leave that residence. At least all the renovations & the most amazing residential Heating & A/C I’ve ever had made it easy to sell that residence suddenly. But I’ll be missing that house & the community that we were a part of, however, I’m serious about being a partner. And partners support partners for life. So perhaps there will be some more wonderful quality heating & air in my future.
