It gets to the point that a person's efforts to keep the thermostat low can interfere with any ability to accomplish anything in the house. When all you want to do is hunker down under the blankies and hug a heating pad, maybe it's time to splurge and give yourself a few more degrees of warmth. If I can drag myself out from under the blankies, maybe I could sweep a floor or whip up some supper.

C'mon, should I really be comfortable in the house with a long-sleeved shirt, a heavy sweater, AND a long wool coat?


  1. A friend of mine has a rule: as long as the toddlers aren't complaining they're cold, it's warm enough in the house.

    And we know how often toddlers stop to think, "Hmmm... is it getting chilly in here?"

  2. I have no toddler-barometers.

    I discovered that I was much warmer outside raking leaves. It was only 8 degrees colder outside than inside, and with the work I warmed up nicely.

  3. I did the same thing and finally caved for the same reason. I still walk around with a warm grain bag on my shoulders half the day though! It just feels good. I like warmth!
