Fall has finally arrived in my neck of the woods. The leaves are turning, the nights are cool, the air conditioning is off and I am putting up my Halloween decorations. I have pulled out my sweats and moss green velour lounge pants. I love those pants..they are just so soft and cozy.
With the change in season also comes the battle of the Semper Fi's.
When do we turn the heat on?
I will NOT be the weak sister who turns the heat on first. No way.
I have gone so far as to pile on so many layers of clothes that I resemble Ralphie's little brother from "A Christmas Story". I am not a baker but come this time every year, I suddenly need to bake bread or brownies. Baking means I get to turn the oven on. Oven on=heat.
I have been known to stand by the dishwasher while it's running for warmth but I will NOT be that one who wimps out first. Part of this insanity is that I like to have at least one electric bill not carrying a balance in the 100's or more but part of it is bragging rights. I will win. I will retain my crown of being the toughest one in the same house as a Marine.
Frostbite be damned, I will dominate.
Who's up for brownies?
