How Warm Is It In Here?

I try really hard to keep our thermostat set at 68 degrees. On really cold days, or early in the mornings before the kids take showers, it can be bumped up to 70. But that's it.

I usually run hot anyway, so I don't worry about it. If I'm cold, I put on thicker socks and a warmer sweater.

But today, when I was getting ready for work I could feel the chill. It might be the gray, wet skies, it might be my soaking wet hair, but whatever the reasons, I decided to warm up the house to 70.

Imagine my surprise, my chill bumped skin surprise, when the thermostat said it is a warm 70 right now. In this house? I don't think so. But that is what it says.

I guess it's warmer sweater time.

And, I guess, the ceiling fan does not have to be on. I'm sure everyone would appreciate it if I clicked that chill breeze maker off!


  1. Yikes, Brandon has our thermostat set at 62 degrees. No wonder I am so cold!
