58 Degrees

Why is it, that when it is 58 degrees in the spring, we want to pull out our shorts, go to the park, take a walk or have a picnic?

When it is 58 degrees in your house in the fall, you're freezing and looking for heavier clothes to put on!

We have been having our annual contest to see how long we can go without turning the heat on. Yeah, we're cheap like that. We were doing pretty well. On Monday, when the sun was shining, the house stayed around 68 degrees which was very comfortable. Last night while I was at work, Tim decided that he would turn the furnace on. It started up and ran for 5 minutes and then died.

Today when we woke up, it was a balmy 56 degrees in the living room.

I had lots of other thoughts to share, but right now I have brain freeze.

Oh no, I hope you get the furnace going soon.

Yikes, that can't be fun. In college, I would keep my dorm room at about 78 degrees and still sleep with a comforter on!

Our furnace is set at 65, I would have it lower as most of the time when I am pregnant I am a furnace but my husband and children complain. I can't bring it up any higher when I still have at least 1-2 small boys running around in nearly no clothing though!
