I live in a cold house. My house in made of concrete blocks and is surrounded by trees, so it takes a very long time for it to warm up inside. While this is a great thing during the summer months, it drives me crazy during the winter months, which we haven't even technically gotten to yet.
While I was inside freezing my butt off today, it was a wonderful warmish day outside. When I took Katie and Maggie (the dog) outside for a walk a little while ago, it was 79 degrees outside. Do you want to know how warm it had gotten inside my house by that point? Only 74! And the only reason it was even that warm inside was because I had the heat set on my thermostat to not let it drop below that point.
I need a laptop computer so that I can go sit outside in the sun on warm days and still keep up with my online buddies.
