Almost there...

Monday, June 29, 2009


It's after midnight, I've got a huge week ahead of me, and it's 83 degrees in my house. I really wish I had four grand to blow on adding an air conditioner to my existing heating system. It's too hot to sleep, and I really really need sleep.

It will get better. This only happens 5-10 days a year. I should suck it up. But oy, I hate not being able to sleep. I hate it even more when I know I won't have any time to make up the lost sleep and I need to be at the very top of my game.


  • When I lived in a rental house and it was too hot, I would take a sleeping bag and sleep on the back porch. It was much cooler there than in my room. However morning noises would wake me up quite early (5am or so) (garbage trucks, loud birds), at that point, it would have cooled down and I would go inside and sleep a bit more. You should try it in your backyard.

  • I've discovered the joys of sleeping with a chemical ice pack on my chest in hot weather. If you keep a shirt between your skin and the ice pack, it works just right.
