Every year, my family and I have a disagreement about the temperature of the house. I know that it sounds ridiculous, and it honestly is ridiculous. We should not have to argue about the temperature of the house, but we do. It is mostly in jest, but sometimes, we get carried away. I try to set the thermostat at about sixty degrees during our holiday celebrations. The house does feel a little bit chilly for a few hours, but once all of the family shows up, it warms up. My family does not exactly agree with my strategy. They do not like being chilly for a few hours before family shows up. I tried just turning the heat down once everyone showed up, but by that time, it was too late. It was already really warm. It had to have been around eighty degrees in the house last year once the family showed up, and I was sweating to death. It was awful, especially because I was in the kitchen which was even warmer. This year, I plan to turn the heat down without telling anyone, and I hope that they will not notice because I do not want to have to deal with the heat like last year. I really hope that they will let me keep the heat down for the entire day because I have to do even more baking this year than what I usually do. I think that my husband will be the only one to notice that I change the thermostat. He is pretty sensitive to those sorts of things.
