The Thermostat Wars

Who is cold and who is hot at your house? Teresa turns the FAN on at bedtime. It’s a post-menopause thing, she says. She does generate a lot of heat. If only we could corral all of this thermal energy?

Later, after the fan is off, she goes into a type of sleep that generates some SERIOUS snoring, like heavy machinery with engine trouble. I lay awake, wishing she would stop snoring.

Then she goes to the “silent sleep” mode, and now I am alert, listening for her breathing. Is it any wonder that I have a pillow speaker to listen to podcasts all night?

There was a lean time early in our marriage where we shared a single bed. Hard to believe now.
