Today, I am thankful for my socks.
The heat in my house does not evenly distribute. So in order to keep Q's room (the coldest in the house) decently warm I have to turn the heat way up. I've tried to keep it to the point of warmth for Q, but not too high for monetary reasons.....
But then, I got last month's PUD bill. Sure we have two other people in the house, and that means a lot of hot showers, laundry, etc...but the amount on the bill made me throw up a little in my mouth. So, we are on a serious lockdown of the heat.
I purchased a space heater for Q's room, which is keeping it toasty and perfect for her, and the rest of the house is on it's own. It's pretty much as cold as my mom used to have it...I know that only a small amount of people will understand that reference, but I'm sure those people just shivered a little. I keep the house heat above hypothermia, but below comfort...so we layer with sweatshirts and buddle up in blankets, but my feet get extra cold so these warm and cuddly socks are my new favorite accessory!
Man....I am so ready for winter to be over!!
