My computer is in the kitchen, which is where I like it. We moved it into the living room once, but I had to carry all my snacks in there; and when I was cooking, I kept burning stuff because I was in the other room.
Cliff leaves for work at 2:30 PM; my granddaughters are often gone by 5 PM, and always gone by 6. After that, I stay at the computer (in the kitchen). Oh, I wash and put away dishes, put the dog out, and so forth. But I am mostly in the kitchen until time to go to bed.
The thermostat for our furnace has always been in the living room, which would make perfect sense for a normal family situation. But you see, after the girls go home, my living room isn't used, and it's been deciding the temperature for my living quarters all this time.
I finally talked Cliff into moving the thermostat into the kitchen. So when everyone is gone but me and the dog, I cover the doorway to the living room, close the door to my bedroom, shut the heating ducts in both rooms, and save a fortune on propane! I'm only heating the kitchen, the bathroom, and the hall, this way. You'd be amazed at how seldom the furnace comes on. When I go to bed, the bedroom door is opened, but I still don't open the vent in there, because we like sleeping in a cool room. And I turn the heat down to 55 for the night.
Primitive, isn't it? I love my country life!
