Can I tell you how cold my inlaws keep their house? So cold, I'm sitting at this desk right now wearing a men's parka. With the hood up. And everything that's not under the parka is still freezing. It's so cold, I couldn't sleep last night because my neck was stiff from huddling under the covers and because the cold air hurt my nostrils. When I worked up the courage to get up and go to the bathroom I ran into MIL coming out. She was wearing a nightgown that looked like a big loose t-shirt with a low neck. Sick, eh?
On the upside, I managed to make my pecan pie after all, and some proper cranberry sauce. And my inlaws are nice people, even if they are part seal.
