I Think It’s Time to Turn on the Heat

18 Nov

It’s true.  Last night, my apartment was 57 degrees.  I try really hard to not turn on the heat.  In fact, I’ve been carrying a space heater around with me for the past few weeks.

If only I'd had some other penguins to cuddle with.

After drinking a half a bottle of wine (alcohol warms the body, eh?) and grabbing a beer at the bar with some of the folks I work with, I came home, kept my coat on, and had another glass of wine while I packed my clothes and stuff up for this weekend in PA.

And even with my space heater running NEXT TO my bed, I slept in a pair of yoga pants AND a pair of sweat pants, two pairs of wool socks, a long-sleeved t-shirt, and with two quilts over me.

I will say that I slept damn well, but that was an awful lot of prepping for bedtime.  I think I might have to buckle and turn on the heat.  I’d like to wait until after Thanksgiving.  If I can just make it till Thanksgiving…

Happy Friday, Ya’ll!

    We’re doing the same thing, though it’s a little easier here in ILM. Might have to turn on the heat tonight though…

    we held out until november 1st, when the temp in our house dropped to 55 degrees. there is a certain level that your house can get to that will cause the pipes to freez, so they recommend keeping it at least 55 or above.. . we’re keeping it at 60 which is still saving a lot of money ! 🙂

    but i would commend you if you made it til thanksgiving. 🙂
