When Jenny tells people that she went on a 3-month long vacation and traveled through 15 countries, they say that she was “lucky.” Luck had nothing to do with it.
Jenny has been planning this trip for the last year, while saving up the money she needed to take it.
Over that time she broke back on doing anything fun. Jenny squirreled away every spare dollar she had, because she was so intent on making this dream vacation a reality. Does that sound like luck to you, or is it hard work? The trip itself was amazing, but the return to the lake house was anything but. While Jenny was gone some rats had somehow gotten into an exterior air duct that runs along the side of her roof. From there, the nasty little critters had gotten into the crawlspace in the attic. Now they were roaming freely throughout the air duct all over the lake house. Based on the amount of pitter-pattering footsteps in the air ducts, Jenny guessed there were at least 2 animals, maybe as many as 5. Jenny contacted the Heating & A/C repair supplier to ask for an inspection, but the guy on the phone told her not to bother. The Heating & A/C pro wouldn’t do anything about the air duct until the animals were unfastened. He offered her the number for animal control, and said when the air ducts were clear they would send someone out to inspect, repair, and clean them. Jenny has to wait 2 more days for the animal control specialist to arrive. At the moment, she can still hear all the animals playing in her air duct.
