I wasn't meant to be an Eskimo

November 21st, 2007 at 08:53 am

I woke up to winter this morning. Mind you, it was almost 80 degrees Monday. Today, we'll be lucky if it tops 20 degrees.

As I have aged (gracefully, mind you), I have grown to hate the cold. I don't particularly like wearing sweaters, boots, coats, mittens,and the such.

Yet, I try not to hike the thermostat above 65 degrees or so. So I'm always bundled up. Yet, it still seems that my feet and hands are always freezing.

It doesn't help that my office sits over a crawl space. I fully expect to walk in one day and find icicles hanging off the ceiling.

This year, I got wise and invested in a space heater. It appears to be warming things up a bit; or, at least, that's what everyone who walks in my office tells me. The only way I can tell the difference is to walk out of the office and into another part of the house. Then come back into the office. For a brief moment, I get that "Ahhhhh ...." feeling that one gets when they are all warm and toasty. Then I go back to being frickin' freezing.

Such is my life...

    Ohh I'm with you on this. I hate the cold too but I live in Ohio so have little choice but deal with it. Right now I'm keeping my heat at 58 or less but not liking it much.
    Fortunately the weather here has been a bit more mild compared to what it can do. So thats one thing I have to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving.

    Try to stay warm and safe.
