Stuck between a ...

rock and a...cold place??? Sorry that's all I can come up with for this one.

The weather has finally hit a point where I'm thinking, "It's time for some heat." We had to install a new oil tank so that was last paycheck's "freemoney." So while we've got a new tank, there's not actually any oil in it.

Luckily we've been having Indian summer for the past few weeks until Friday. It went from temps in the mid 70's (and humid at night requiring a little cooling) to needing heat the very next day. I used the plug in oil filled radiators while we were home, but since we went to mom and dad's last night I turned them off. We got in about an hour ago. At first it felt pretty good in here (compared to outside.)
The more I sit here though, the colder my fingers and toes and backside is getting.


Hubs comes home tonight. I'm going to try to talk him into getting the oil tank filled now instead of waiting until next month. It's no fun trying to use these heaters. The floors are cold. He stays in a heated apartment through the week. He doesn't have to be here to babysit the house.

My fingers are stiff from being chilly and my nose is cold. I'm going to the couch to cozy up in a blanket.
