I've died and gone to hell

Brad and I are compatible in many different ways.

We are not, however, a match when it comes to body temperature.

To wit: now that it's gotten "cold" here in Florida, Brad has jacked up the heat. (Mind you, it's 80 during the day and 60 at night--on the REALLY cold days, it's 70/50.) So I'll sit here, getting an early preview of menopause, as the sweat pours down my face...

...Until I can sneak out there and jack the temp down to a more reasonable temperature--say, 65. Before long, he'll come out of his room, blowing on his hands, rubbing his arms for warmth, muttering something about the "frigid temperatures."

I suspect it will be like this all winter, too, with the 2 of us sneaking around like ninjas, fighting for control of the thermastat.

"Getting an early preview of menopause" LOLOLOLOLOLOL.

John's parents mentioned how "chilly" it's been lately. They say this as if they weren't born and raised in Michigan and survived 60 Michigan winters. Yeah, it sounds really frickin cold :-)

At least YOU still sound like a northerner, knowing that 80 isn't cold!

and just so I can beat Deb to it, it's "thermOstat"

Can you opn the window in your room? Or you could take more clothes off and he could put more on. Take 'em off baby! Take 'em all off! ;)

but if I open a window, i'm just letting in the "chilly" 75 degree heat. Which doesn't help.

Yeah, htey keep saying it'll happen to me, too....and I do have moments where I can see it. I've actually said something about how "chilly" it is and then realized later on that the day was 75. But those moments are fleeting. for the most part, I'm still a northerner.

Anna I didn't get a chance to write you back yet but right back at you, babe!! I love you!!

This post brings back memories of being in high school and freezing my ass off at home while your mom would have the windows open in the middle of winter, as it was was too hot in the house. LOL

Why not just come to the agreement that the temp stays at 70F (or whatever you two decide)? Bumping it up and down is just going to make your bill more expensive.

The thermostat is set at 76.

Brad is walking around the condo wearing a jacket.

Yes, I'm serious. I couldn't make that up if I tried.

LOLOLOL. Tell him if he touches the thermostat again he's gonna have to come live with us. Ours is set at 67.
