I don’t mind turning it on so that she can be comfortable, but she wants the temperature set to 75 degrees.
This year, my mom will be visiting me in Cocoa Florida to celebrate the Christmas holiday. I love it when she comes because I take her to all the different places around town. And of course, because the weather is so mild, we get to spend a lot of time outside. Although it’s usually too cold for swimming, she loves going to the beach to sink her feet in the sand. She lives in the Northern part of the country, and she barely goes to the beach, so when she comes to Cocoa, it’s the one thing that is on her list. While she prefers the beach in the Summer, where she can actually experience the water, she appreciates it during the colder season. Of course, she complains a bit about how chilly it is because she expects Florida to always have pleasant, warm temperatures. And usually when she is here, she always wants to turn on the central heating. Normally, I don’t use my central heating in the Winter time because it barely gets cold enough to do so. But she believes that my house is too cold and will insist on turning on the central heat. I don’t mind turning it on so that she can be comfortable, but she wants the temperature set to 75 degrees. She’s used to her home being toasty in the Winter months, but for me 75 is just too high. So, this year, I decided to get a space heater for her so that she could use that instead of the central heating. After all, this is Florida, and we use the air conditioning more than the central heating.
