I was in a small car accident last week, and it did quite a bit of damage to my body. I broke a few ribs as well as my left femur. My doctor told me to stay in bed for about a week before I try to get around on my own. This wasn’t a hard task because I couldn’t get walk on my own even if I tried. Unfortunately, my husband had to go back to work the day after I got out of the hospital. My mom offered to come and stay with me, but she wasn’t able to come until the following week. I was destined to stay a least a couple days by myself, and I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. The first day came and went, and all was well. The second morning, I looked at the weather, and it said it was supposed to be very warm that day. I asked my husband to turn the AC up, so I wouldn’t get too hot during the day. He turned it up just before he left for work. Within a couple hours, the house was very cool. Around noon, it was so cold in the house that I had to put two more blankets over me. In the early afternoon, I was literally shaking because I was so cold. I wished so badly that someone could come over just to turn the thermostat up. When my husband finally got home, I immediately asked him to turn up the thermostat. That Tuesday was one of the longest days of my life. I know now that I would much rather be too hot than too cold.
