Freeze Yer Buns 2008

Ryan & I decided to join in the "freeze yer buns" challenge that Crunchy Chicken runs every year. We're committing to 62 degrees during the day and 55 degrees at night. We should be fine... might even lower those standards a bit! :) We have a bit of an advantage for a few reasons:

1) we're on the 2nd floor, and the college-age kids who live below us like to crank up their heat (if this year is anything like last year)

2) my husband is a natural heater... not even kidding... so i can curl up against him and be perfectly warm :)

3) all the windows in our apartment face south, so we get the sun (when it's not raining) from about 11am-sunset. if we open up the blinds, etc. during the day we can often catch that sunlight and warm the house. also... we're often not home during the day for long periods of time, which means the heat can be lower and we don't have to worry about it. you'll just find me huddled in front of our wall-heater when we get home and the house is freezing ;)

4) we've got several warm blankets around the house which we can use if it gets too chilly at night, and a down comforter to sleep under... as well as jersey-knit sheets (you've got to check those things out... it's like sleeping in a big, thick, broken-in t-shirt!)

we'll see how we do! wish us luck, and if you come to visit... bring layers :)
