Have you ever had one of those days where you just didn’t have any motivation for wanting to get work done? Usually it involves cleaning my house, or doing my dishes (UGH!). It is just such a dreary day, that it seems to sap the life out of me. It is warmer today than it has been for two weeks. This morning, the temperature was 27 degrees warmer than the high of yesterday. We are actually going to make it above freezing today. It should be a day to relax and feel like getting something done. There is no snow or ice to handle with, but there isn’t any sunshine, either. I haven’t heard the furnace running nearly as much as I have over the last two weeks. That will definitely save me some money on my energy bills. My husband is taking this time to clean the baseboard heaters. There is a lot of dust built up inside them. I thought that baseboard heating was supposed to less dusty, but my house is full of dust. He told me the dust was because I kept the thermostat too high. I told him it was dusty because of a lack of humidity. We have the humidifier running 24/7, but it doesn’t seem to be doing any good. The next several days is supposed to be well above normal for this time of year. They call it a January thaw, but what do the weather forecasters know. I just call it muddy and miserable, and hard to keep my house clean.
