Aire Serv of the Mid-Hudson Valley - May 2019 | 845-256-6158


When it comes to relieving stress, there’s one constant in my life: my wife, Andrea. As a couple, we enjoy the time we spend together, and one commitment we have made to our relationship is sitting down and eating dinner together every night. Some nights are easier than others. We are both busy people and we have bad days like everyone else — we're certainly not perfect. But making the effort to sit down and eat dinner together can be one of the most relaxing parts of my day. Of course, sipping a bourbon sour, our favorite cocktail to unwind with, makes this even more restorative. Recently, Andrea and I have also really enjoyed watching "Death in Paradise" on Netflix. This British procedural follows an inspector who is transferred to the island of Saint-Marie despite hating the sun, sand, and ocean. His main prerogative is to investigate the perplexing murders on the island, and much like other crime shows and mysteries, the show does a great job of keeping the viewer guessing each week. When I’m not enjoying a nice meal, a bourbon sour, or the latest Netflix binge with Andrea, I find solace in reading books. As a business owner, I often find myself diving into business and self-improvement books, as I continually try to soak up as much knowledge as I can. But I’m also a big fan of military spy books. There’s nothing quite like the rush of following an agent as they try to track the latest enemy and save thousands of people from destruction — all from the comfort of my own couch. Granted, the heart-racing thrills of spies and murder mysteries may not sound like the most relaxing ways to unwind, but it’s comforting to become engrossed in worlds that are outside of our own hectic lives. Readers will remember that Aire Serv of the Mid-Hudson Valley has been busy this past year, even going so far as to beat our revenue record for 2018. It was a great feat for our company, but this meant our technicians were busy DINNER, DRINKS, AND NETFLIX How My Wife and I Find Time to Relax Together

"When it comes to relieving stress, there’s one constant in my life: my wife, Andrea."

helping homeowners with their system emergencies, adhering to regular maintenance checks, and installing new technology. Finding time to unwind became a necessary part of my day as my team and I did our best to serve our growing number of loyal Aire Serv customers. But I’m not the only one in the home who stays busy. In addition to helping me with this newsletter and some of the administrative tasks that keep Aire Serv running smoothly, Andrea also holds down a full-time job and is involved in our community. She is active with the women’s guild at St. Joseph’s Church and sings in a community choir. On nights where responsibilities keep us pulled in various directions, our nightly dinners become even more valuable to us. And sometimes the best way to unwind is to just get away from it all! In early May, Andrea and I plan to take our first trip to our timeshare in Williamsburg, Virginia. We’re excited to learn more about the history of this colonial town, and the scenery will certainly elicit some serenity. I hope you can find time to relax this May, and if you’re not sure about what to do, might I suggest a bourbon sour and some "Death in Paradise"?
