OK so I am now in a bit of an invisible duel with someone I have never seen!
As you all know, my office is located in a giant old convent.
The Convent is expected to be FREEZING cold all winter long and even on some warm spring days. For the past few days the temperature has dropped into the 40′s and 50′s at night, only climbing into the 60′s during the day. Today, it’s still cloudy but slightly warmer, maybe 70 degrees.
Well the thermostat for the building is right outside of my door and someone keeps putting the AC on!!!! The damp convent gets even colder!!!
This person comes out and turns the AC on. I wait until their steps are gone and I turn it off! he, heeeee…
But I have finally tired of this nonsense, so I posted a note:
“Seriously, it is 70 degrees out and the earth is melting! We have been freezing all winter and now we are missing this season. What happened to fresh air and opening your window? How about making some personal changes? Wear less clothes? If a bit over weight, drop some lbs?”
This is one of my biggest “peeves” we freeze all winter and everyone complains but the SECOND the temperature rises above 69 degrees, we turn the AC on!!!!
When we moved into our house, the windows had not been opened for 10 YEARS!!!! Can you imagine how unhealthy it is to not have breathed fresh air for 10 YEARS!!!!
The weekend before last it was really lovely outside so I opened all of our windows and the kids and I lived outside. I was surprised at how few homes had windows open and even fewer people were outside!!!
Maybe it’s not just the food are eat that’s makes us ill, but the lack of a relationship with the outdoors, starting with fresh air!!!
