No heat, electric still to high

December 5th, 2009 at 07:49 pm

Been chilly at night, but blankets and cuddling cure that problem, the only thing I wish we had was warmer sheets, nothing worse than getting up from watching a hulu episode cozy and cuddled to switch to a ICE COLD bed, though it does of course warm up quickly.

I also took to putting a blanket down on my youngest's bed rather than her cold sheet, if I don't want to leave the warmth of her for a sheet, cant see her wanting to leave me for it either!

Company coming tomorrow, so we may need to turn the heat on for them, or not they are from up north, and so far as I know not to unfrugal. Will have to see. Course sticking 4 more folk in my little house will heat it up already! If I bake or cook at all I may be wishing for open windows, happens all the time with company here, though I am never sure what they think of the temp.

Living in a varying degree house makes one a bit off on temperature judging. Sometimes I think my 'nicer' winter and summer wear is worn backwards, short sleeves in winter for visiting, and layers for summer!

So if you are ever at my house and I ask you if I need to open windows or turn the heat on, tell me honestly, I can take a layer off or fetch a sweater, but you prolly didn't arrive expecting anything other than a 74 degree constant.

Oh as to why the electric is high, seasonal baking and computers left on I think. Will have to work on the computers at least.

    Do you have any electric blankets? Even if you just put them on ten minutes before you get into bed, and then turn them off, you'll be able to get into a warm bed. Smile

    My heat is set to 55, so I know what you mean. I'm fine if I'm staying in bed or stay wrapped up in front of the computer or something. But moving around is the challenging part.

    Haven't any electric blankets, might need to put one on the Christmas list Smile
    BA sometimes moving is the best thing, vacuuming can work up a some internal heat!

    Yeah, once the bed warms up it is great... but those first few minutes in a cold bed lead to some (temporary) discomfort! I find that a hot water bottle does the job, though. It's a cheap, easy solution from back in the day, and it offers some insurance of a toasty spot under the covers. =)
