The October Struggle

20 Oct

As I write this, my hands are freezing. During the last couple weeks of every October, I battle with myself to not turn on the heat. Sometimes it’s warmer outside than it is in, which is frustrating.

I’m not sure what my psychological barrier is here–we can afford to heat the house, certainly (partly because, thank goodness, we don’t have fuel oil anymore…if you’d like to hear a rant about that scintillating topic, ping me in the comments), but I think there’s something to wanting to prolong that higher bill as long as we can.

This winter, the Boy will also be at home, as he has a new work-from-home job, so there’s no blocking off a drafty part of the house. After this week, he’s already looking for alternative heating solutions. Because sadly, heat from non-stop baking only travels so far.
