The electric bill came up to $146.00 for last month. Whew. That alone makes me shiver even more. But we can't help it (or can we)? It's the winter break, and the kids are mostly at home, we've had some guests over the holidays, and it's REALLY just cold. It's 22 degrees outside right now as I type this. I crank the heater way over 70 almost everyday because despite sweaters and socks and quilts (thanks, Ms. Sandy, AJ takes his Thomas quilt everywhere around the house), it is still freezing.
I think I'm getting better, though. When I talk, my voice is raspy, booming, whispery, or not there at all. I am following everybody's advice, thank you so much, and since I'm off today and tomorrow, I hope to get the rest I need.
How do you all cope with this winter chill? Brrrr!!!
