Two weeks ago I was 11-0 at this point close to 12-0, dreaming of a perfect week. Now Iím 2-9, well on my way to 2-10. How quickly fortunes change in this game!

Oh he knows. He doesn't care what temperature I keep the house at when he's not home.

If I try to even turn it from 70 to 71 when he's home though... hooo boy.
