After last month's heating bill ($$$$$$$$$) I decided that heat would be used sparingly. Subsequently, I'm cold allthetime!

But in lieu of a hot bath last night, I went to every room and just turned on the heat. Not to like 80 or anything. But just on. It's glorious this morning. I can run around the length of this place and it's not cold! Anywhere!


And now I need to go turn it all off, because I don't want another $$$$$$$$ heating bill. But it sure was nice.

It needs to be tee-shirt and sandals weather already, goddammit. Of course it may SNOW on Friday. WTF, over.

Hehe - I suspect my good mood may be in part due to turning the heat up to 65 (from the usual 63) - being warm is quite nice!

Of course, I know feel like I'm going to singlehandedly responsoble for an oil crisis...

Hee. I know what you mean. Thank god spring is around the corner. We need nice weather again, enough with this winter crap!

I went through that same crazy-heating-bill thing. I have a guest bedroom that I rarely go in when no one's visiting (it also has all of my books and my file cabinet, so I do go in there occasionally, but I don't spend a lot of time there). I closed the door to that room so that I don't have to heat it up for no reason. Before someone visits, I just open up the door and turn on the heat a little in there. You could probably do the same thing if you have rooms that you don't use often.

Unfortunately my second bedroom is an office that I spend a lot of time in. But I usually don't turn the heat on in there, either, and just bundle up.

It's just been so damn cold lately. Hopefully nicer weather is ahead pretty soon here, and I can start complaining about how hot it is instead.

Oh, yeah, my computer is in my bedroom because I have too many books in the second bedroom. Hee.

My bookshelves are exploding with books--I need to do built-ins in the closet or something and get a smaller bookshelf for the bedroom!

It's nice you're able to use it as a guest room, though. My desk is just too enormous to squeeze into my bedroom.

Haha, mine was, too. I bought a tiny corner desk and stuck it in my bedroom, because I didn't have room for a sleeper sofa, two huge bookcases, and my huge desk in the 2nd bedroom.

Someday it'd be nice to have a third bedroom. It's crazy how greedy I've become for space considering I've always rented dinky 1-bedrooms.

I've thought about selling my big desk and getting at least a smaller one, but just so I can have more bookshelves..

I have the same reaction. Sometimes my house seems really big for just the one person, and needs to be filled with books and stuff, but then when I've got enough stuff, I need room for more stuff!

I know! It's crazy! And as with so many of the things in my kitchen cupboards, it's not that I need these things everyday, but I need them sometimes!
