This morning hubby woke up to a 14C (57F) house. He spent a great deal of time complaining about how cold it was, how uncomfortable it was, and when he brought the garbage to the curb, he claimed his hair froze when he came back in. It was -4C (25F) outside. Dude, I'm not buying it.

I repeatedly let him know that if he was that uncomfortable he should turn on the furnace. There was no ulterior motive, I thought it was a practical suggestion. But he refused. Not only did he refuse, he indicated that I should be the one to turn on the furnace, otherwise known as caving. I could tell by the tone of his voice. Well, we just know that won't be happening now! I was all set to turn on the furnace before we went out to dinner last night, but he talked me out of it, and now he's set it up as a battle of wills. I am at a slight disadvantage in that I am home all day, but with the sun streaming in the windows it got up to 17C in here today, and I've always got the cat and Sasha to cuddle with.

Bring it on!


Oh ya, you Americans need to get metricified, I'm tired of these conversions *g*
Who does she think she is?

We have to keep the house fairly cool. I would prefer to be able to cuddle up under blankets than have the furnace running too much.

I do too, and usually I'm shoving covers off myself in the middle of the night too. In the summer I run a fan on myself.

First off...thank you for the conversion on the American temperatures-otherwise I would be like, "Huh?". Okay, now that I know how freaking cold it really is...Brrrrrrrr! Lady, are you crazy. Your hubby is freezing! Your one dog is shivering. I think even the cat is too cold to meow (lol). Just turn on the furnace. I know you have your own little baby oven on and you are always too warm/too hot and this cold weather sorta evens it off for you to feel "cool"...but the rest are freezing. I can't believe you aren't gonna turn on that furnace.

Guess who is gonna be turning on that furnace at the first sign of cold weather next year? Guess. That's right-Momma Bear. LoL! You aren't gonna let the baby ever shiver. Your hubby will be so happy not having to suffer the cold weather anymore.

HeeHeeHee-turn on the furnace already.

It is fun to play those games ;). Hubby and I do it as well.

I can't imagine being that cold.

Hey now! It's not our fault that we're like the only place in the world that still uses Fahrenheit! It's awful over here because all the weather is in metrics and I still can't get it into my head that 15C is not a bad temperature. Bah!
