This is pure venting...

Thursday, November 20, 2014

Or maybe just asking for some input....

There is so much on opposites attracting..nite owls and day sparrows ..active bums and lazy
lumps...etc. Well here's one for ya...

I like cool..I like the breezes I like to feel the wind in my face and to be able to pretty much live in shorts and t strap tops. emoticon

DH craves temps in the 90's and at this time of year keeps the fire blazing and the house is nearly in the 80's. He has jeans..a t shirt.and a flannel shirt on ...he is comfy.
I however am dying!

I have my lite weight pants and a sleeveless top on and stick my head outside from time to time to get a breath of really cool air!!

I don't want to open a window as that would cause the furnace to activate..NO NO NO!!!!

So...we rock on and we work it out..I manage to keep my bedroom and the back of the house a cool refuge . He rarely goes back there..washer, dryer..other items that might attack him..hee heee But when he does his first words are ..dam it is cold back here..then he goes and puts another log on the fire!! sigh...

So anyone else have a similar issue and how do they manage it?

I just do not tolerate hot well...at all actually.. How did I end up with someone that would be comfortable in Egypt??? emoticon

Ok...rant over...will focus on what we are here for..just had to let off steam!!

Have a great day...BBL to see how the day went for us all!!!

    OK, I'm more in line with your hubby, but not with 80 degrees indoors! That is just too hot! There are these great towls they sell called Cool Wraps I think.... You wet them and shake them an it becomes instantly cool. You can buy them at a site called Pulse Tv and they are cheap! It would give you some respet without having the furnace activate! I hate to laugh at your problem, but I just had to laugh! I'm laughing at your other Spark Friends' answers too! Hope you all can find a happy median! Perhaps 1 hot day and 1 cool day to give each other their share and compromise!

    Oh this is me and Johnny, but opposite. He likes it cold around 65 deg, I'm happy at 74deg. He sleeps with all the fans blowing, I don't like feeling breezes on me while I'm sleeping. He likes chips, brats, wings, fried cheese covered things, I like veggies, grilled stuff. It goes on and on. Oh, lets not forget that he's into heavy metal, I can't stand it to the point he is not allowed to listen to it when I'm within ear shot.

    I wouldn't be able to be in a 80 degree house though, that's just too hot! The bikini idea is great, you should try that.

    Consensus is for you to be comfortable and DH to wear as many clothes as possible over his long-johns. So much so that he looks like a toddler on his first outing. Arms and legs out straight and can't bend

    Katie - I think Santa needs to bring
    For DH. -Thermal underwear (like skiers wear) He needs long johns and a long sleeved top. I love silk ones as they are so warm and feel really good next to your skin.
    For you - a good fan to sit by.

    Then you might both be able to sit in the same room. emoticon

    Pure venting? Seems like you need to vent the house!!!

    I had developed two student housing projects and we did roommate matching with one criteria being hot/cold - just so we could avoid situations like yours.

    Good luck!

    Hohoho... I actually read your blog out allowed to my DH. We have the same problem and often get into little arguments about the temperature in the house. Your blog made us laugh really hard. Thank you for posting!

    PS: sorry - we don't have a possible solution for the problem either.
