My husband and kids like to go camping and sleep in tents or the great outdoors.
I enjoy the swimming, canoeing and grilling hot dogs over an open fire, but I just cannot sleep that way.
It’s not sleeping on the ground that bothers me, it’s the heat and humidity. For me to sleep comfortably, I have to be in my bedroom with dry air and the temperature set at 65 degrees. Whether we set the window air conditioner or the space heater, my bedroom temperature is always set to 65 degrees at night. Not during the day, though. I don’t care if the bedroom is 80 degrees during the day, as long as it is 65 degrees when I am sleeping. I sleep in warm pajamas under a thick blanket to keep warm, because 65 degrees is chilly, but I just breathe better and sleep better in a colder room. My husband doesn’t complain. I guess he just got used to it. Now, I wonder what I will do when we finally get central heat and air conditioning? It’s not fair to freeze out the whole house every night. I guess we can invest in those zone controlled options I’ve heard of. Or maybe we will get those ductless mini-split air conditioning and heating systems I’ve been hearing about. Those are zone controlled. Maybe I will leave the window air conditioner in the window or just use a fan in my room. I really don’t care as long as it still feels like 65 degrees, so I can sleep.
