I may make it to Nov 1 after all!

We still have not had to turn on the heat.  M is trying to cave, but I can taste November 1st like it is 24 hours away.

Long live the down vest and the fleece jacket.


A new record

It is October 22nd, and I still have not had to turn on the heat.  Of course, as M has pointed out, I am wearing boots, a fleece, and a down vest in the house.  But I am going to push it as long as I can, as I’m doing it for the polar bears.  It has nothing at all to do with the fact that I grew up in a household that considered those who turned on the heat before November 1st wimps.

A Sure Sign of Global Warming

I woke up this morning and realized that it was mid-October and I hadn’t even contemplated whining about not wanting to turn on the heat yet.

Surely I just jinxed myself now and it will get frigid in the next 24 hours.

Overheard in the Hallway

A: “I am NOT a space invader!”

Chichimama: “Huh?  I would hope not!  I think all of my children are human, last time I checked anyway.”

A: “Not THAT kind of space invader, a space invader on the RUG kind of space invader.”

Chichimama:  “Ah.  Well, that is a good thing as well.”
