Getting away from the tied up town life was the solution I’d been searching for, but my mom was adamant I had to finish the book before summer and have it published.
But I couldn’t seem to concentrate in our tiny house with all the noise and chaos around.
So she recommended I go away for a while and find a peaceful spot to write. I did a little research and came across a mountain house set in the most appealing location I had ever seen. It took some time to get there due to the snow, but thankfully it was hot when I got inside. The owner had told me the AC plan was always on and would keep me comfortable throughout our stay. I wanted to believe her, but I had had a terrible experience before. We went for a family skiing trip one winter and chose to stay in a house like it. I had insisted on a cabin, but my parents wanted adventure. It turns out that was a mistake since the heating unit was faulty. We had to use the portable AC units we’d brought with us just in case for the entire stay. The day the AC plan stopped genuinely working, a large snowstorm and snow blocked all the major access roads. There was no way an AC mechanic would get to the house and look at the a/c. That experience had made me fearful about mountain cabins, but I chose to give it one more try. The owner had sent me the latest HVAC maintenance report to show the unit was in wonderful condition. She was right because the AC plan worked throughout our stay at the appealing mountain cabin. It even had an air purification plan that kept the indoor air quality at its best.
