Winter?

It's a record. It's DECEMBER 11 and my heat has just been turned on. Yeah, it may be early for some of you down here in the "warm country," but I couldn't handle it any longer. As I drove to preschool this morning, Dutch told me it was 47 degrees outside. I was proud I had waited so long to get the heat moving in my house! Even now I'm resisting the urge to go prepare some hot cocoa. This may sound very pathetic to all of you who are actually experiencing winter, but I'll admit I've gone soft. A week in McCall is going to take lots and lots of layers to keep me warm. Today all of my children have long pants on and 2 of the 3 know what socks are. I have got to find some long underwear if skiing is going to happen over Christmas! Today I'm grateful I'm not homeless, because let's just be honest, I'd simply die out there.

when dent picked my up at the airport we were debating how long you could last without heat...

Seriously? It was 73 today. You obviously were meant to live in warm weather climates!

Okay this is so funny because I was outside in leggings (ugly, i know) a tee shirt & flip flops (my "grubbies") & I was feeling WARM! I was slightly annoyed I didn't need a jacket -- is the weather different on your side of town or are you just a wimp! :)

Good luck in McCall!

You are a wimp. And from Utah.

let's get a few things straight... yes, I'm a wimp, I admit that freely. It was nice outside today, more pleasant than inside my house this morning, but I truly wore three layers most of the day. I was born this way!

AB, it's because you don't have an OUNCE of fat on your body that you are so cold all the time!!! But you did beat me - I turned on our heat a couple of weeks ago. I'm a wimp too and can't stand being cold. When it gets below 70, I'm pulling out the hot chocolate and marshmallows!!!
