Getting away from the stressed city life was the solution I’d been searching for.
My dad was adamant I had to finish the book before summer and have it published.
I couldn’t seem to concentrate in my apartment with all the noise and chaos around. He suggested I go away for a while and find a peaceful spot to write! I did a little research and came across a mountain lodge set in the most beautiful location I had ever seen. It took some time to get there due to the snow, but thankfully it was warm when I got inside, and the owner had told me the A/C system was constantly on and would keep me comfortable throughout my stay. I wanted to believe her, but I had had a bad experience before. We went for a family skiing trip one winter time and chose to stay in a lodge like this one. I had insisted on a lodge, but my parents wanted adventure. It turns out that was a mistake since the heating unit was faulty. We had to use the portable A/C units we’d brought with us just in case for the entire stay. The day the A/C system stopped working, a large snowstorm and snow clogged all the major access roads. There was no way an A/C mechanic would get to the lodge and look at the a/c. That experience had made me fearful about mountain lodges, but I chose to give it one more try. The owner had sent me the latest heating and A/C service report to show the unit was in nice condition. She was right because the A/C system worked throughout my stay at the lovely mountain lodge. It even had a media air cleaner that kept the indoor air pollen levels at its best.
