Welcome 2013

Well we haven't fallen off any cliffs, fiscal or otherwise yet.

It is absolutely freezing already.

What I love about this kind of weather (insert sarcasm here) is how our house is so Amish. Yes, we have electricity, but our furnace is coal, and because of my dad's COPD we haven't used it in the last 2 years, opted for those space heaters similar to Eden Pure.

Now if this big old house didn't have high ceilings we'd probably be warm, but since it does, can I just say, it is freaking cold? And since there is no money for a new furnace, I'm really glad comforters at Walmart are around $20.00!

The thing is...this house is not built for extreme weather. It is super hot when the temps rise, and it is just as cold when they drop.

There is no happy medium here.

So basically what I need is a night or two at a motel where its warm and I can take a bubble bath instead of a shower.

Also, it is so cold, I can't even read.
