I am Houstonian. I don’t do 21 degrees.. well.
I’m not really whining. I think it’s cool that it’s colder than a half gallon of Blue Bell out there!
I can take the cold bamboo floors, letting the faucets drip, the drafty fans above the toilets, and the fact that every time we have to open the front door, it totally undoes the work I’ve put in to keeping the house warm.
What I can’t handle is the cold little feet that wake me up out of a great, warm sleep, because Hawk thinks it’s funny to raise the back of my shirt to keep his feet warm on my back! What I can’t handle is not letting the kidlets get their morning energy burned off outside, because their snot will freeze to their faces! What I can’t handle is no electricity, because of rolling blackouts state wide (although it hasn’t hit us yet!)
In the meantime, we’ll build a fire, sip our hot chocolate (with marshmallows, mind you), and wait for it to warm up to the whopping 36 degrees for today! We’ll probably catch a movie or two on Netflix, download Free MP3s, and possibly even get some school work done today.
I hope you all have a great, warm day!
