Today DH was totally independent I just let him do what he had to do, keeping an eye on him and happy to see him pushing himself to do much more.
Today was a very cold day so we did not venture outdoors. I want to go out to the store for a few things but it will have to wait till tomorrow.
Around noon time DH said he was cold, he walked in to the hallway where the thermostat is and he tried to make it over-ride to make the heat come on.
Eventually he succeeded and he said we should call the service department to install a new thermostat. I was busy and did not really make a comment.
Some time later I could see DH was uncomfortable and I asked what was wrong and he said he was too hot.
I went to the hallway and the thermostat was set at 90 degrees. I switched it to off and told DH it was set at 90. He said he set it at 70 degrees. I said nothing and I stood and read the tiny instructions written inside the little door.
I could barely read it , the print was so small. I took the door off and used a magnifying glass and typed out the instructions. I used red, blue, black and green print and upper and lower case letters.
I looked at the preview and made it 100% so now I could read it very easily. I printed it off and since DH was sleeping I decided to try to program the thermostat 24 hours of it and weekday and week end. I taped the page to the wall right beneath it and It took a long time but I got it done.
6am house will be 70 degrees till 10 pm when it will go down to 68 degrees and back to 70 at 6am.
DH woke up and he was able to help me with the last functions. Since we are no longer working DH suggested just do it all 7 days so I have.
All afternoon we checked the temperature with another thermometer and it is working exactly the same as the freestanding thermometer.
That means we will not have to purchase and have installed another programmable thermostat for 2 zones. They will undoubtedly cost a bundle since we felt this one did when we installed the new system when we were working.
DH has taken himself off to bed and I am about to follow.
This week DH and I have had unexpected education. You might say home schooled adult Education.
I never even think of using the remote for the TV because I never watch it without DH so i never needed to do it.
Now I have the urge to challenge that tomorrow. I would love to connect the computer to the TV screen so we can see our photos on the big screen.
Another project to learn some time soon. HUGS Thanks fro your support. Pat is off to bed earliest time this year----Probably last year too!
