theres an idea. stick the space heater in your room before you go to bed to warm the whole room up, then turn it off when you fall asleep and hopefully it lasts through the night

Get an extrication blanket too so if your room goes up in flames like your mother probably thinks it will then you'll be prepared. Lol.

Have you thought of hot water bottles just to keep you warm? They're pretty cheap and should keep you warm enough to at least fall asleep. I have one that has a furry holder and it stays warm for hours. Although it won't do much for your room, but at least you'll be warm.

I feel your pain. My dad is they type of person that thinks if you leave things plugged in its going to burn down the house. Forget about space heaters, slow cookers, etc. I miss out on all the good stuff! I can only use electrical things if I'm around ( and awake) to supervise them

Nope, no space heaters allowed upstairs at all. Grrr.

I did find a heated blanket at Kmart for $25. $25 I don't really have to spare right now, but it's that or freeze, so I got it. Walmart had one for $20 but they were sold out.

And my heating blanket is dead. ****. It got below freezing in my room last night, but it was okay because the dogs and I huddled under the heating blanket. That's not an option tonight. I just want to cry
Man screw that ... I would sneak one up stairs and just his it in your coley or something ... What your mom don't know won't hurt her. I used to rent a mobile home from someone who was also super paranoid (and was also too cheap to fix the heating in the mobile home ... It had a propane furnace but it was broken) and I bought a ceramic heater and his it when I wasn't home xD.

But all joking aside, it's not healthy to be that cold.

You guys don't have central heating?

There are good days and bad days with this breakup process I suppose.. woke up this morning knowing it was going to be a bad day.

So am now lying in bed wallowing in self pity even though I have a lot to do today.

Merlin saw me crying and brought me his unfinished bully stick, which I think is pretty adorable

Talk to Zoom about a Subaru. Not today or tomorrow, but maybe after this storm. I liked how my truck drove in the snow, but nothing compares with a Subie. Her XT on all-seasons did better than other AWD cars with snow tires.
I do not have snow tires... no money for them. I'm hoping to make enough around Christmas to be able to put some on, though. I think it would make a world of difference.

I'd never considered a Subaru, but that really might be something to look into! I'll definitely have to hit Zoom up about it soon

We do, and I actually have to partially cover the vent to prevent it from getting too hot in my room (seriously, it will get up to and beyond 90 in the dead of winter, since hot air rises). But it's not on, because we can't afford to turn the natural gas on this year. My parents get it turned on in November when the cold weather rule goes into effect, don't pay their bill, and get it turned off in March. So March-October we don't have hot water (which is a MAJOR reason I have a Plant Fitness membership! $10 a month for hot showers? HELL YEAH!). Except now they owe something like $5000 and have to pay almost $500 to get it turned on for the winter, and nobody here has $500 to get it turned on. So no heat, and no hot water.

But I just posted in the good news thread that my mom is starting to give way, and told me to TRY a space heater for a bit and see if the outlet gets hot (?)...if I move the smoke detector to the other side of my bedroom door. I'm really in shock. I think it's because I made her break ice in the dog's water bowls when she fed them lunch while I was at work (I love the 83F warm animal room at work right now...).
