    I need to Thaw!!!!

    I was outside in the barn for about 3.5 hours yesterday... it had warmed up to -5F and I was dressed to be outside (I thought)... I never did feel cold when I was out there but then I got home and showered and felt chilled... I still can't break that feeling today. I even showed again this morning before work. I am now sitting at my desk with a undershirt with a sweater over it... and then a jacket over that!!!!

    Im debating about putting my little streach gloves on.... I don't feel sick or anything... but why can't I get over this chilled feeling???


    I hope everyone that is in this cold snap is doing well... I just can't wait till spring!!!!

    A couple shots of ol Jack should warm you right up. LOL

    Drink hot beverages, or soup. And stay bundled up

    You got colder than you thought, a little hypothermia where your core body temperture got low. You should be feeling better by tomorrow. If you are still feeling chilled when you get home, sit in a tube of hot water for awhile and let the heat have time to soak into your body.

    Yes, soup or hot cocoa! (Put a little Jack in the cocoa.)

    Go sit by the woodstove or a fireplace -- nothing like radiant heat to fix that right up!

    I was finally able to break it... kept putting on socks that I had thrown in the dryer for awhile. But out again I go today after work...

    That happens to me pretty often actually. It takes me FOREVER to get warm. 2 winters ago I took a skiing class and it was negative temperatures (*F) often and I'd take a hot shower when I got home but when I would go to bed I'd be cold to the touch still. It was not fun. But I love winter!

    Swing by the store and get those little hand/toe warmers to stick in your pockets and boots. If I can keep my feet warm I tend to not get so cold to my core.

    Thankfully this cold snap isn't supposed to last forever.


    ( I have to agree with the little nip of hard liquor. I've been known to come in and take a swig or 2 straight from the bottle to warm the belly )

    I might have to try that! (The hand warmers) I got some for Christmas last year and I still have them in the drawer. Maybe I'll bring them with tomorrow. Good idea

    Maybe some hard liquor too! haha. Jk..prolly not that. Who knows though if it gets really cold!
