Thanks for all the replies!

A'salaamu alaikum ya'll.vI wanted to say that I was really excited about all the replies I got to my last post "Please introduce yourselves". It's so great to be able to learn a little more about my sisters all over the world. I was going to just write a quick comment on my comments page but decided just to do a quickie post about it.

Jazakum Allahu khair for all who stepped forward; I am very happy to meet all of you and insha'Allah look forward to meeting more in the future!

I had a serious post in mind tonight but I am exhausted and up late so I better scoot on off to bed. It's cold here and I wanna go get snuggly and warm under the covers. Oh quickly on that topic, alhamdulillah A and I have no disagreements about the temp in the house. I prefer it to be on the cold side and he surprisingly likes it fairly cool himself. In order to not freeze the kids into kidsicles we keep it at 68 degrees inside but at night I'd love to drop it to 65.

When I was a teenager we lived in a small trailer that possessed no central heat or air. One winter in particular (money was tight) we only had a tiny wood stove to heat the home. Now if you know what a trailer is like, you know they are long and skinny. The stove was in the main room and my bedroom was at the far end. My parents offered to take my room but I was fine with it. I would snuggle up in my blankets and I could see my breath sometimes! It made me feel strong and capable and I can't sleep with warm air on my face. :-(

Anyway I don't know how I digressed into a childhood memory but there you go. Guess it's what happens when I am blogging late at night when I really should be sleeping. :-)

Insha'Allah I'll have the time soon to post something more coherent. lol Ma salaama!

hhahaha I love the digressing into childhood thoughts... one winter we lived in a tiny house with no heat.. and my mom put bricks in the oven to heat up and then wrapped them in newspaper and put them under our blankets. Ghetto but soooo warm, she even asked me if I got back into doing that given I have no heat here at the moment lol. But I am fine with double socks, gloves, and warm snuggly blankets.
