Some like it hot – I know I do! To a point… Last week it was crazy hot around here. In the high nineties, and very humid. Hot, sticky, uncomfortable weather. For the most part, I’m ok with that – as long as there is a bit of relief now and then. It’s nice to get out of the heat and into a nice air conditioned room once in a while. Especially when it’s time to sleep!
Unfortunately, during the height of the heat wave, the upstairs air conditioner gave up the ghost. Coincidentally, that was when Grandpa and Beth were visiting, so we couldn’t even sleep out in our air conditioned camper – because we had invited them to stay there instead of a hotel room!
We did some searching and made some calls, but we could not locate a single air conditioner that was powerful enough to cool the upstairs of our house. Thankfully, the downstairs AC was still working, and our couch is a fairly comfortable pull out so we were able to come up with some sleeping arrangements that were reasonably comfortable for everyone. The kids slept in the bunkhouse of the trailer, the Milk Monkey slept in his ‘Pack & Play” in the living room and Mummy and I slept on the couch. The arrangements were not optimal, but at least no one had to sleep in a crazy hot, humid upstairs bedroom.
Now Grandpa and Beth have returned home to Canada, and even though the weather is starting to return to more tolerable temperatures, we find ourselves sleeping in the trailer to take advantage of the nice beds in the cool, air conditioned environment. Admittedly, we could sleep upstairs at this point, but we just love the trailer – so the AC is a great excuse to spend some time in our favorite place. That, plus Mummy prefers to sleep in freezing cold conditions… there have been nights when I’ve turned the AC down because it was just so cold! I sometimes joke with her that we spend the entire winter freezing, just waiting for the warm weather, and here it is, but she still prefers to sleep in the freezing cold!
Well, some like it hot -and apparently some like it cold! At least when they sleep…
