Because the house is too cold?

Just kidding...mostly. My parents keep their house SOOO cold. Iím bundled up in a sweatshirt, socks and a blanket.

I'm Jealous! My MIL is staying with me. She is always cold, and keeps turning my thermostat up to 80+.

In the past I use to keep my house cold like that but now I'm getting to be a cheapskate

Let Mason & Molly keep you warn with cuddles.

Go to my parents' house. They're in the STL area and keep it at 80% all summer. My dad likes dogs, my mom pretends not too but will love them.

Dawn,
We might have to go there and warm up.

My father is being peer pressured to at least pretend to pay attend to the dogs.

I think so. All 3 of our bedrooms are upstairs. My dd and ds room stay warmish so they crank the AC down. Our room, however, must have a direct path or something, because it is frigid...omg...I have like 4 blankets and clothes on. We're eventually going to have to get the duct work checked, but haven't gotten into it.

So, yes I feel your pain!

I once taught summer school in a room that was so overly air conditioned that we ran a space heater. I'm sure that was against all school safety rules, but ...

Thatís unusual! Most people turn up the heat as they get older. My 92 yr old dad keeps his house at about 82, I have to remember to dress in layers when I visit!

I have the opposite problem when I visit home. My parents are too cheap to turn on the AC 95% of the time, even though it's southern OH and it's HOT and HUMID all summer long. They start considering it if it's 100+ . My mom is always going on about this invisible "cross breeze" from opening all of the windows. And no, they don't have any money troubles. Same issue with the heat in the winter- they keep the house super cold because they don't want to pay to turn it up.

I've never understood that. Why would you want to be uncomfortable all of the time in your own home? I'd rather just pay for AC and heat to suit my comfort level and save money elsewhere.

My DH says yes, you can and that he feels your pain ! I keep the AC on 70 and he pushes it up to 74. He goes to bed, I put back on 70!
