So this is one thing I will definitely NOT miss about China!
The government controls the thermostats in our houses here (along with many other things)
But....they wouldn't turn the AC on before a certain date in May, alhto it was super super hot!......and worse - they are refusing to turn on the heat for us until Nov. 15, 2010!
HELLO - it is 28 degrees in our house right now - yeah, that's right, below freezing and i have 2 little babies who are so cold and I am trying to keep from freezing, along with myself. Griffin can be bundled, and has done ok cuz he is all swaddled up and covered, but Cashee refuses to wear socks to bed, add another blanket in his crib, and he never stays under the covers so instead he has woken up 3 times in the past 2 hours with freezing cold hands and feet and shivering and crying.
We are flying today and i really could have used a good nights sleep. Instead, I am listening to how there is a pizza and broccoli in Cash's room (from his dream i am assuming). We gave all our blankets away except the one on our own bed so Chip and I can't split up, and we are all cold and it makes it really hard to get out of bed and get back to packing!
For the sake of all my friends with small children - please decide to turn it on a week or 2 earlier!
