I tried! I really did! I wanted to see how long I could go without turning on the heater.

I gave it a great effort. I made it through this past weekend. Oh and even the past few cold and wet mornings.

I got up this morning around 2 am to let my dog outside and thought.....wow it IS cold in this house. I, though, did not look at my thermostat. I just let Chipper back in the house and crawled back into my warm bed.

I put my flannel sheets on about a week ago and those are a beautiful thing! They so keep me warm and toasty.

But alas, my alarm went off at 4:15 am and I had to get up.....oh and I was in for a massive unpleasant surprise.

My thermostat read 62! Yep that is ridiculous. I broke down and turned on my heat. The good news was this is what it read by the time I was getting ready to leave:

So let's hope the outside temperature does not drop down to the thirties again tonight! OK? Did you turn your heat on too this morning? Comment below.
