Two things this week that made me shake my head in wonder or dismay (I’m not really sure which!).
First, several times this past week I have found the thermostat to the heating/cooling system set to HOLD. I could not figure it out. It had been running on the scheduled program just fine when it is changing itself to the HOLD setting. I finally asked Bill about it Thursday morning. It seems that when he has been coming out at 5:20 a.m. to exercise on the elliptical, he has been hitting the Light button on the thermostat to see whether it is set to air or heat and to see what the temperature is. On cold mornings, if it is still set to air after he hits the Light button, he switches the program to heat. Only thing is, there is NO LIGHT BUTTON! He’s been hitting the hold button. And so some days I find it is on hold on the a/c side, some days on the heat side, depending upon what buttons he hit after the “light” button. Oh my. We’ve had the system for almost a year now. You can tell how many times he has (or hasn’t) monkeyed with it!
Second, on the weekends, Bill and I eat breakfast together. This morning, I doled out the vitamins and then finished up making breakfast. Bill had his usual plate of scrambled eggs with sausage and I had oatmeal. As I sat down to eat, I noticed the Bill had brought his container of vitamins to the table, but left mine on the counter. I said something about, “Don’t I get vitamins too?” His response was, “I didn’t think you wanted to take them at breakfast.” Say what? I always take them at breakfast, taking a few at a time between bites of cereal. They seem to settle better that way in my stomach. If I don’t take them at breakfast, usually I end up not taking them at all. I have been pretty regular in this routine since April … but for some reason, Bill remembered it backwards, thinking I needed to take them at some point in time that was NOT breakfast.
