Catching up with my family

I think there is something wrong with the thermostat in our house.  Last year, we had the thermostat set at sixty-eight and I was never cold.  This year, the thermostat is still at sixty-eight and I am always cold. Actually, if I were being honest, I am shivering  most of the time. My husband sits around with his flannel shirt on all of the time, and he doesn’t mind the cooler temperatures, but now that I am getting older, I mind it more and more.  I try to push the temperature on the thermostat upwards, hoping he doesn’t notice. I tend to mind the cooler temperatures in the afternoon, when I’m working. I’m wondering if it isn’t because I am so sedentary.  I work in my office from home, and I don’t have a lot of room to move around. I try to get up and walk every half hour, just to keep the blood circulating. I know that if I sit more than that, my legs get cold, and then I end up with cramps in my legs.  I am still going to blame it on the thermostat. I’m beginning to think that maybe we need to change the batteries in the thermostat. If the batteries are dying, then the thermostat can’t be working as well. I will have to fly that one by my. He’ll still insist it is me, but I think it is the thermostat.  All I have to do is convince him of that. Once I do, he’ll buy me a new thermostat for my office, and I can get back to normal.
