when your sleeping habitat is changed.
Let's start with the fact that the fan on our air conditioner was making some odd noises on Saturday morning. We have central air and someone had changed the switch for the fan to on instead of auto. (No wonder I was always cold!) Because of the funky noises...and not wanting to completely ruin the unit...we turned the air off. The house was warmer than normal, but not too bad...the first day.
The second day, Sunday, DH was home. He's not as fond of fresh air as I am so the windows weren't open as much on Sunday. In fact, I came home at 8:30 at night (after my workout) and the house was shut up tight and HOT! And if I'm hot, it is HOT!!! I opened doors and windows, but not much could be done to cool down our bedroom...or so I thought.
DH brought in an industrial fan, plugged it in and turned it on high. I'm here to tell you that industrial fans are loud and can pump out the breeze! I slept very poorly for the first couple of hours (until I turned that darn thing off!). During that time, I had some strange dreams. The one I remember most vividly involved our boxer, Abby. She and I were playing a game, most likely tug/fetch. I tug on a toy until she lets go. Then I throw it and she fetches, repeat. Anyway, in my dream, she had a tongue like a frog. It was long and thin and would get wrapped around her head during our game. In fact, it would wrap onto itself and get stuck! I would need to unstick her tongue, kind of like Velcro. As soon as it was unstuck, her tongue would snap back into her mouth (like a tape measure) and we would start all over!
I'm sure there is some great meeting hidden there, but I'm too tired to figure it out. Let's just say, I'm glad the air conditioner is fixed and we won't have the industrial fan on tonight!
