How to Solve Temperature Issues with your Spouse

I'm not talking about the cold shoulder.

A couple of days ago in our house, I told Lucas, "I'm freezing! Air conditioning always makes me SO cold!" He looked at my like I was crazy.

Don't get me wrong- I'm super thankful for our air conditioning, and I'm a wuss when it comes to hot weather. But I prefer to keep the temp on our AC up pretty high (around 79-80 degrees) so that it just kicks on every once in a while with a blast of cold air and then turns off. When the air is blowing non-stop, I freeze. 

Anyway... I discovered that my husband did not know about my AC freeze-out issues. I couldn't believe it until I remembered this:  for two out of the last three summers, I have been quite pregnant (thus liking things cooler than normal), and the other summer we lived in two houses in Oregon with no AC.

The good news is that our current house offers the perfect solution. It stays nice and frigid downstairs, and cozy-warm-but-not-too-warm upstairs. It works out okay because Lucas and I can chat with each other online from our perspective computer stations: his downstairs and mine upstairs. We are the All-American Tech Nerd Family.

That is so funny. Our house and temps are pretty similar. But, our computer is downstairs. Perhaps we need to consider adding one upstairs. Perfect. ;)

Very cute! I think that somehow that might make it into a sermon illustration under the anonymous category.
