IT'S ONLY OCTOBER...

It's cold here tonight. It's suppose to get warmer this week, so that's good. However about 10 days ago it was 90. When we were having about 3 days (on a weekend, nonetheless) of 90+ heat, I refused to turn the air on. I mean, it's October already! My neglected children had to sleep in their rooms with their windows open in their underwear. OMG, the HORROR. Okay, it did totally suck, but GAWD IT'S OCTOBER ALREADY!

Now, a mere 10 days later, it's in the upper 30's. (Hey, at least we don't have snow!) Soooo, since it's ONLY October, my poor, deprived, totally abused children will have to sleep with an extra blanket on them tonight, because NO HEAT... IT'S ONLY OCTOBER!!!!!!!!!

Does anyone else have 'rules' they follow on turning on their air or heat? I won't turn my air on in May or October -- only June through September (I live in the central Midwest). I won't turn my heat on in May or October. So what I have determined is May and October are free-for-all months? Why you ask? I have no friggin' idea!?!? I must have some sort of OCD, ACD, or whatever you call it. I hope it don't spread....

UGH I hate this weather!! ITs ony 9 days until November - why is it still close to 90 degrees? In OCTOBER. It's supposed to be like in the 50's or something. I hate running the AC in October. And I don't use the heat in October either, LOL. But then again, I do my best not to use the heat at all. (I love it cold, hate it when its hot, LOL. Why I am moving to Honduras where its HOT all the time is beyond me, LOL)

That was cute! I don't have any set rules, but I do avoid turning on either one until we absolutely can't stand it anymore. Like today, it's cold her too (finally) and my house is freezing - but I will not turn on the heat. It will, of course, be 90 tomorrow her a well. I'm ready for it to cool off and stay that way for a while - we've had a long summer. See ya.

UPDATE: Since I am indeed getting sick... I have turned the heat on and it's not even November yet! I broke my own rule. Since it's my own, I can break it, right?!?

You know, we all need to put a little structure in our lives...maybe this is the way you do that. Or it may be your personal protest against global climate change...
