“What is a full grown woman doing carrying a blanket around the house?” That is what all of my friends ask whenever I invite them to my house to chat; but, they haven’t taken off their coats yet to experience what I have had to deal with ever since I got married. My home is frosty cold; however, it isn’t because of a draft concern or because my gas furnace doesn’t work well. In fact, my gas furnace is top quality compared to most gas heating systems on the market. The reason that my home is so frosty is that my husband enjoys setting the temperature control at the lowest possible temperatures. He is from the north, so that means he can handle colder temperatures than most people, including me. If I had my way, I would turn the gas furnace on full-blast as well as completely stow away our a/cs! However, I want to do whatever I can to make my husband content, even if that means letting him set the temperature control. I usually just bundle up as well as keep a blanket with me at all times. I would rather have my home too frosty than too warm. You can only take off so much clothing to deal with the heat, but you can always dress warmer in cold temperatures. My friends make fun of me, but once they see the temperature control setting, they ask for a blanket too. So, remember this lesson when you meet your future spouse. Heating as well as air conditioning settings may seem like a pretty minor thing right now, but your comfort depends on you agreeing with each other. Otherwise, you will have to let your partner adjust the temperature control while handing you a blanket.
