Don't you hate it . . .

when you do something dumb.  The weather has been beautiful up here in Virginia.  Cool and crisp in the mornings and high of 80 in the afternoons.  Well, anyone who knows me knows that I'm always cold.  

This is the part where I do something dumb.

I can actually see my Dad looking down on me shaking his head.  He taught me better.  In fact, he's the one who taught me everything about how to sweat in the summer and freeze in the winter.  I'm talking about the AC/Heat unit.

So, back to my story.  I was cold one morning and pressed "hold" on our electric thermostat after pressing the up arrow a few degrees thinking that I had changed the temperature.  Well, no.  I actually stopped the unit.

So, like I said above, we have been having beautiful weather.  However, the afternoons do get a bit warm and we have a lot of big windows in our house (albeit they need to be replaced) and it has been getting quite warm in the afternoons.  I thought it was because I was working up a sweat keeping such a clean house or cooking all of those gourmet meals I'm known for but NO.

I've been sweating the last couple of days in the afternoon because my ridiculous self put our unit on hold.  I finally went to check out the thermostat a little while ago and realized what I had done.  Now, I'm sitting in a cool, refreshing house.

Sometimes I can feel Dad's presence even when I do stupid things.  I know he got a chuckle when I finally figured out what I had done.

But isn't it a wonderful feeling to know that they are still with you and that they always will be -- Mom laughs at me a lot from heaven and I can feel her saying "I told you so"
