Shiver Me Timbers

It is cold in Ohio. February can be brutal. I am freezing.

If I had all the money in the world, I would turn my heat up high. But, since we are trying to keep our gas bills down, we try to keep the heat down. So, to keep warm, I add an extra sweater most nights. I always wear slippers. At night, I put on an extra blanket in addition to our down comforter. And when nothing else works, I drink tea.

Have you seen the ads for the Snuggie, the blanket with sleeves? I checked out their website tonight. I was seriously thinking about buying it. Yes, I am that cold and desperate. If you are having a bad day, check out this link here, it will make you laugh out loud. I was surprised how expensive they are. It costs $19.95 plus $7.95 for shipping and handling. That's a lot for a glorified blanket.

Blame it on the recession. I am going to have to pass on the Snuggie. Just a little too expensive. Their ad states that if you buy one, you receive one free. You have to pay an addition $7.95 for each Snuggie. I don't need an extra one. I can't imagine my husband wearing it. I am not sure I can imagine myself wearing it. So, I will throw on a regular blanket, an extra sweater and make myself some tea. And I will count down the days until spring. In Ohio, it should be here sometime at the end of May.

I am surprised so many people know what a Snuggie is! I think it is so funny. You could take a large fleece blanket, put some safety pins on each side and make your own Snuggie. Save some money too!

You could also stick velcro on and wear a regular blanket like a cape.

That was so sweet of Victoria to give you another blanket on Friday. I bet she didn't realize just how much it would come in handy!
