Growing up we always had the thermostat set low. Like low. And I was always freezing. So when I moved out (to college and then to my own place), I cranked that thing UP. And then I met B and it got turned down. D*mn boys. But over the years I have gotten used to it. Of course, I swear sweatshirts and socks at all time, but whatever. B and L never get cold and WB wears fleece pajamas most of the time, so he’s good too. I just looked and our thermostat is at 65 right now. I’m guessing that sounds chilly, but when you are running around / crawling around / playing like crazy, it is so NOT. No one is ever sitting still here! And if we get cold, I just turn it up.
I do remember a few years ago, sitting around the house a few nights and being cold. Not just chilly, but down right COLD. And I didn’t know why. I’d get up from under my blanket on the couch after L went to bed and I’d be shaking I was that cold. B was out of town and I was telling my mom about it and she’s like that’s so weird, blah, blah, blah. I was seriously considering going to the Dr. I thought something was WRONG. And then my mom comes over to babysit L one day while I went to work. Umm, turns out B was feeling “warm” one day and turned the heat down to like 60. OMG. I was about to kill him! So while 65 is acceptable. 60 is NOT.
Now it’s your turn, what do you set your thermostat to? And do you set it lower at night? We don’t, but probably should. Truth be told, I don’t know how. I’m unclear if our thermostat is even promgrammable? I need to look into that….
