Steamed about heat?

January 7th, 2009 at 02:12 am

Our dreadful December/November gas/electric combo came today, and it ain't purty. matter of fact, it's $437 ugly.
I am NOT happy and am sitting with a blanket wrapped around me as I type.

Other bad news includes the IRA statement from American century and the fact that it's still the first week in January. Lots of heating, and probably lots of stock market losses on the horizon still.

Happier news includes the start of a new class last night and my unnatural avoidance of the vending machines there, despite the 4 1/2 hour long class.

Pleased to hear anyone else's good news...

    You could avoid the vending machine trap and still have a snack to stave off the hungries. Just take a thermos of coffee made at home and maybe some crackers, fruit, or whatever feeds the beast for you. You won't be spending money unnecessarily, but you also won't be going through a long class and practically fall asleep.

    I hope I don't fall asleep in my class--I'm teaching it.
    They'd probably let me sleep and all tiptoe out if I did.

    I do take a snack when I remember, but it's getting everything prepped and ready to go that usually kills it.

    Slim-fast and/or a cheese-stick!

    Have you considered another heat source, like wood-burning or something???

    It's a good idea. When we had some basement work done, we disconnected the hot water heat in the basement, and I think that's affected things.
