It's no surprise that I am blonde...but I was hoping just in the literal sense, and not in the figurative, "Elle Woods" sense. Well....
Being up in the Northeast in the winter time was a shock to every part of me, especially my better judgment when it came to the thermostat. I had no idea that you have to TURN OFF THE HEAT when you leave the house to go to work. In my mind I thought:
a. Won't the pipes freeze?
b. Won't the plants freeze?
c. Won't I freeze when I get home from work?
Well moral of my story is that the heat/oil bill was astronomically high, like really really high. Like rent payment high. So please, learn from my HUGE mistake and turn your heat or air conditioning OFF when you leave the house or apartment for the day.
