My husband danced and rejoiced. My children whooped and hollered.
"Spring has surely sprung! Hallelujah!" they declared.
The source of all this glee? I, the wife and mother of the household, put away the space heater and allowed the use of portable room fans. My husband nearly wept for joy when I unplugged the heating pad, removed it from our bed, wrapped the cord up, and stored it in the linen closet.
I have not, however, conceded to using the central air conditioner.
