Baby It's Cold Outside!!!

Brrrrrrr. I woke up this morning with the blankets pulled tight to my ears. Poked my feet out from under the covers and shivered! Yowza....it's 53 degrees!!!!! In sunny South Florida - this is reason to break out the winter coats. In fact, when I heard the forecast last night, I actually said to hubcaps: "I don't have a coat". Oooooo, we even had a "windchill" temperature - 42!!! I cannot believe it. I pray, pray, pray that just maybe the temps can stay cool through Christmas. If I'm going to heat up my house cooking a FEAST, then I'd like it to at least be a little cooler outside, BUT, then we wouldn't be able to eat outside....it's a toss up.

Life has been pretty uneventful for me...oh, except that I got a bill from the hospital where by daughter had outpatient surgery for A THOUSAND DOLLARS. They billed the insurance company almost $6000!!! Um, my c-section only cost like $9K. So, the thousand dollars is my deductible. Didn't know I had a deductible. Because it was in a hospital, apparently they can make me pay this. Whatever. Good luck to them, because I will not pay it. Asking for an itemized bill today so I can go through it. AACK! I hate when stuff like that happens.

We've got 8 days till Christmas!! I only have a few more gifts to buy - hallelujah!
Hope you're having a good Monday....

Uh.... our wind chill is -12 degrees... yes that's minus. I would love to have the snow, but not the bitter biting wind that's whipping around right now outside. That's tough, but wouldn't trade new england for palms, yet... ask me in deep Jan.

53 degrees sounds like delightful sweater weather!

Hope you get your hospital bill woes worked out and that all the mail you get for the rest of the year are Christmas cards!

Holy moly! That thousand dollar bill STINKS! And right before Christmas? Ugh! (and we woke up in CT to a temperature of 13 today...that is THIRTEEN DEGREES. LOL)
