Time to bring out the big guns.


Last night, I went searching for my super thick blanket. I did fine with a blanket that was a lot thinner than I usually use since I’m always cold, but I was shivering while taking a nap, so it was time. I was cozy.

But it was a rude reminder of what kind of weather I’m dealing with now back north. I was spoiled with SoCal’s heat in January that readjusting to cold (and possibility of snow) is hard. Too hard. I miss SoCal.

This will be Rydia’s first winter in an actual winter climate. She adjusted fairly well to the move as a whole, but we also moved in the spring, where it was starting to…well, not really warm up; it was 30 degrees when we landed in Michigan in April. So yeah.

Let’s keep in mind that I was born and raised in NYC, which is not too far away from where I am now[1. Oh, just about 9 hours away driving], so readjusting shouldn’t be an issue, but fuck. I feel like throwing on 50 layers right now. And it’s not even anywhere near as cold as it can get! If I had it my way, we’d still be in SoCal, because while the heat can be unbearable in the Valley, I at least was never cold.

Bring summer back! Or at least Mid-May weather. Fuck the cold.

    I cannot stand the cold. I have an electric blanket that I got a few years back on black friday but it crapped out on me last year so I need to buy another before the cold weather sets in here in West Virginia. I hope you stay warm!

    I was born and raised half in California. Then I moved to Iowa. It took me about 3 years to adjust to winter here. Then I moved to Texas and wondered where winter went. šŸ˜› Now I’m back in Iowa. Cold weather doesn’t bother me until the snow flies, then I’d like to say “I’m out” but I can’t. LOL

    I’m gonna have to second what Manda said about the heated blanket. Robby and my little sister got me one last year for Christmas and it was seriously the best present ever. Plus, it doesn’t cost as much to run as a heater. šŸ™‚
