When I notice the AC, I know something is wrong with the kids

It’s rather tough to be a parent these afternoons.

It seems like there has nothing you can do right because the entire global environment is burning to the ground.

As if it wasn’t tough enough to be a working parent before..; Now there is nowhere to send your kids. Obviously, my friend and I are in the middle of a global pandemic which is holding our children back from attending physical college as they normally would, however unluckyly, there is no wonderful solution to this debacle. If they stay at apartment they are limiting their parents from being able to work. If the kids go to college they are putting almost everyone at risk because of the danger of contamination. I have been doing my best to keep the kids occupied at apartment in the comfort of our own heating and cooling system. I feel a lot safer with them breathing our indoor air because it has not been contaminated with any viral particles. I know for a fact that our air filters have been changed correctly and nobody has been expelling dangerous viruses into our volume of indoor air. However, I have been honestly busy with working and keeping an eye on the kids. Normally, I don’t notice the heating and cooling system at apartment at all. I am so tied up worrying about the children that it drowns out my attention for the indoor air quality controls or temperature settings. In fact, the only way that I ever know my kids are up to something is when the apartment falls silent and I can hear the heating and cooling system. If I can hear the air conditioning component clicking on and off, I know that the kids are getting into trouble. Thank God for this AC system because it keeps me tuned into the activities of these wild children.
