I spare no expense for a good furnace in the winter time months. It just gets too chilly around here to not have a good form of central heating to keep your abode perfectly warm. I am also extremely particular about the temperature that I like the thermostat to be set at. this makes it difficult when I visit family members and friends in their own homes during the winter months. And when do families tend to get together the most? During the holidays, of course! The problem when I go to visit them is that it is very difficult for me not to insist on controlling their thermostat and setting it to a temperature of my liking. As my bad luck would have it, many of my family members and friends set their thermostats far too cold for me to handle in the winter. If I’m not begging them to turn the heat up, I’m outright turning it up myself behind their back. They certainly don’t appreciate this, but I can’t help that I get cold very easily. That is why as much as I like their company, I tend to enjoy myself in my own home for the holidays more than anywhere else. There, I can turn the heat up as much as I want and sit on the couch and enjoy all the Christmas movies in slippers, while drinking hot cocoa, just the way I like it. Come to think of it, I guess I should start inviting them over to my house for the holidays instead!
