About 2 months ago we got a programmable thermostat for our furnace. I left it at its defaults of 70 between 6am-8am and 5pm-10pm and 60 the rest of the time and it seems to be working well. We've discovered one sort of amusing thing though. It seems that The cats don't notice it all that much, except for Rev...we now have to be careful flopping on our bed because there's a good bet that he's burrowed under the covers where its warm. I'd seen him do it a handfull of times in the past, but now its nearly all the time. Poor chilly cat.

I have to admit though, the difference between 70 and 60 when you are just sitting around is Noticeable...more than I would have thought. I've been home the last 3 days burning off PTO before i lose it(stupid policy change, why cut the carryover down to 40 hours when the first quarter is when we have the least work and could most afford the time off?) and I've been wrapped up in my robe(Jess made me a kickass fleece robe for Xmas) and a blanket over my feet because its too chilly not too. The cats are loving me being home though, the bedroom isn't closed to them like usual and they're enjoying the napspace(I swear EVERYONE loves that bed...every person thats napped on it has loved it, guess it was worth the price).

We keep our downstairs at a steady 64 and our upstairs at a steady 62, and it does indeed feel pretty chilly at times. We do have an electric space-heater which is fairly energy efficient and helps to bring warmth to living room when we're down here watching TV. When we go to bed, the covers are warm enough.

Airborne is just like Rev... burrowing under the quilt on the bed. Or she jumps up on the loveseat with me and gets under my afghan. Her little feet are chilly then. Poor baby kitty. :P

Earlier today I went into the bedroom and found Pixel curled up on a blanket, and Rev and Vickie laying side by side. I covered Pixel to the side, and pulled a blanket over Rev and Vickie upto the shoulders.

When I came back 10 minutes later, Pixel was still zonked out, Vickie had climbed out and was sitting in the far corner of the bed in disgust, and Rev had burrowed under the covers and disappeared.

I was amused.
