When I Was a Kid...

A neighbor of mine was outside today with her three-year-old and of course Lucas ran right over and invited the little boy to play at our house...totally fine...he's a very sweet little boy and it turns out he and Lucas play super well together. I was holding her door open when she mentioned she had the heat on. Um. What? The heat on? The miserly old lady in me wanted to shout, "Well, when I was kid we didn't turn on the heat until Christmas morning!" It's only September, people...I know it's New England...but the heat? I'm glad I don't pay her heating bill...that's what people make quilts for!

that's so funny! just this morning, as i was struggling to get out of my cozy bed, watching my daughter's lips slowly turn blue as she played on the floor, still in her summer pjs and with the morning windows wide open, i was mourning the fact that i'm a miserly new englander and therefore won't turn the heat on for at least another couple of months. sigh.

"guilts" - funny. I agree. I live in Texas and I'm always telling someone - grab a blanket if you're cold.
