Cold weather has consistently been 1 of our worst enemies. I grew up in the North, so you would suppose that I would be used to chilly temperatures, but being used to something & enjoying it are totally uncommon things. I may be used to chilly weather, although I easily don’t endelight it, then when I was in college, our roommates would laugh at me because I used a heated blanket, & I had an electric furnace beside our bed year round. I am a small woman, & keeping warm has consistently been a challenge. When Sam & I got married, I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to keep the lake house at a temperature that would suit both of us. Sam prefers it around seventy degrees in the lake house which is really normal, although I appreciate the lake house to be around eighty degrees. When the two of us first got married, he would usually cave in to our desires & keep the lake house at eighty or so degrees year round, but lately he has not been able to sleep because of how warm it is in the family room. Although it isn’t straight-forward for me, I decided to turn the thermostat down to seventy-5 to try & get a ecstatic medium for the numerous of us. Since I turned the temperature down, I have been walking around the lake house wrapped in a fleece blanket even though it is the middle of July. Someday, I hope to convince our spouse to move to some location where it’s warm year round, so that I don’t have to worry about frigid all of the time.
