Today my Mom & I had another of our vicious battles over the thermostat. How many times do I need to say, scream, yell, plead, cry that I desperately need to stay COOL!!! I've compromised & set the darn thing at 68 while I sleep during the hot afternoon (and we live in South Florida!). We've closed off all AC vents throughout the condo except for my bedroom. So all she would have to do is open a window or crack a door if she gets cold. But what does she do??? She turns up the AC, so I get HOT and can't sleep, then can't function!! I'm paying for half of the power bill, so she can't use that excuse anymore. OH God in Heaven, (and I'm a believer), I wish I could live by myself. (Or somehow put a lock on that thermostat).
