freezing, literally.

Yep, for the last 4 mornings, I've had to scrape my windshield. Stupid Mark and his stupid quad, skidoos, seadoos and tools taking up my warm parking spaces. Jerk. And the furnace kicked in voluntarily the other morning (pre-programmed for 15 celcius). I hate fall. Except for the clothing. Vent over.

    It froze here last night, too.  Glad I made the FI get rid of his extra car this summer.

    I remind myself to be thankful for my garage every morning.

    Then I will be thankful for our 40....... It's coming, though - I can feel it.

    Do not mess in the affairs of dinosaurs because you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
    I love you Missy. Even though you are not smart enough to take online quizzes to find out really important information. ~cew

    That's not right... It's cold here too, I had FI cover my tomato plants the other night because of frost warning. And I still have a boatload of tomatoes growing. However only 1 was red, the others are still green.

    Yup.  We've had frost for 2 nights in a row.  Apparently the night before last it was -10C.  That's farkin' cold for the first frost of the year!

    Ugh I agree p2, especially with the clothing part. I hate fall because I never know if it is warm enough to wear a skirt to work. If it is cool and I do I better remember to shave my legs or the goosebumps make them gross and prickly. booo.

    We turned on our furnace last night to make sure it still worked.  We have a garage too, but no space for my car.  I'm hoping for a remote start for my birthday this year.

    It hasn't been quite that cold here yet, but it has been very chilly.  I don't want summer to end so I refuse to turn on the heat in our apartment.  That won't last much longer.

    Just call me "Brothel"
    And betrothed, I'm disgusted with most of the comments that you have posted. I don't think I've ever read such judgmental comments in my life. I'm so lucky that the girls I speak to on theknot are nothing like you...I would've never come on here for ADVICE if I would've encountered a big a bitch as you. I genuinely feel awful for your children or your future children, and I think it would be irresponsible of YOU not to invest in their future therapy sessions starting now. Because trust me when I tell you honey, they're gonna need it. ~jcaruncho2010

    Agreed, except sub fun summer car for quad ect.  We will probably build an addition on the garage next summer, unfortunately we won't gain any space for the daily driver cars.  Next house will have a 3 car garage and a shed for the extra cars and 4 wheelers.I've picked everything useful from the garden, so when the frost comes again I'm not covering it.

    p2, I just wanted you to know how deeply, deeply I appreciate your appropriate and correct use of the word "literally."
    On bed rest since Groundhog's Day and every day since has been exactly the same.

    There's an incorrect use for the word "literally"? Or do you mean when people use it for exaggerating purposes? I know people use "ignorant" incorrectly all.the.time (including every male co-worker I have)...Wading: -10! That IS cold. We've only gotten to -3.

    Oh, yes, the exaggeration one, I mean."I was so embarrassed, I literally DIED."I don't think those people know what literally means.

    haha TJ, I hate that too. My mom always took it one step more too. Whenever we would say, "I'm starving!!" she would give us a lecture about how we were not really starving and that many people in this world were. I know it is picky, but it makes you think about our language use in a different way.

    Meaghan - I used to get in trouble from my uncle for saying that. I thought he was such a jerk. This same uncle, when they would baby sit us, used to fill mine and my sisters' plates FULL (like a full, male, adult serving) of food, and make us eat every.single.bite. because there is starving kids in Africa. Ok uncle, but I'm not 40 and 225 pounds. No, I'm 12 and 75 lbs.
