Out with the old, in with the new

February 21, 2012

Neil and I spent over an hour and over too much money at Wal-Mart the other night. While we were there we bought groceries, toiletries, bedding, and a few miscellaneous items. One of those miscellaneous items was a new programmable thermostat. If you’re wondering why I’m blogging about this, it’s because I’m excited about it. If you’re wondering why I’m excited about it, it’s because we’ve been using the manual thermostat from the 80’s (I’m not kidding) AND our heating bill has been higher than I’m comfortable with.

While Neil was taking the old one apart he called me over so that I may see this:

Can you see it?

It’s mercury! This thermostat is THAT old.

Ta da! Our new programmable thermostat. Now, I’m going to go take pictures of our new bedding that we got 😀
