I took my shower last night (hot water!) and got in my bed with the AC vent right beside it and turned on my bedside fan which is as big and powerful as a fan that'll fit on a small bedside table can be and it made a horrible screeching noise and then stopped.
For those of you who have never experienced the joy of midlife hot flashes which never quite go away, this probably doesn't sound like a big deal.
But some of you, I feel, may relate to my despair.
I have another small fan and I went and got that and plugged it in but that sucker is USELESS. It wouldn't flutter one piece of toilet paper if you held it in front of it. It wouldn't blow a gnat off a tomato.
But I made do.
Some universal force is determined to not let me have cool air blowing on me.
I told that theory to Mr. Moon and he said, "Nah. Shit happens."
I love him.
So. I need to get to town and buy things for Jessie's shower and go help Liz get set up for it. After the shower I hear that there's some big deer blind project going on at Lily's. Mr. Moon was vague about that but somehow I think it's going to involve Vergil, Jason, and of course, the blind-builder himself, Mr. Moon. I may gracefully decline to participate.
Hunting season may not have officially begun but around here it is well begun. I've already been told to stop using scented laundry products.
Okay. Things to do. Places to go.
All love...Ms. Moon
I have recently been introduced to the weird torture of hot flashes and boy without a fan blowing on me all night I don't think I'd be here anymore..! Have fun with that beautiful girl of yours at the shower...ReplyDelete
How in the world did menopausal women deal with the heat before electric fans? Lord, they must have been sleep-deprived and pissed off all the time.Delete
What is a deer blind? Oh how I can relate to your hot flashes!!! I so don't understand how they can go away for 3 years and come back! When is Jesse due? I can't wait! Hope you have a sweet time today!ReplyDelete
A deer blind is anything a person can sit in which prevents deer from seeing them but from which they can shoot. They can be made of canvas or net or wood or...whatever. Mostly I think that Mr. Moon's deer blinds give him a place to sleep soundly in the quiet early-morning forest. Don't tell him I said that. I did have a sweet time today! And Jessie's baby is due Nov. 5.Delete
Have a wonderful shower for Jessie today!ReplyDelete
It was so splendid!Delete
Have fun today! I can't wait to see the new baby and find out his name. Y'all are the sweetest family! :)ReplyDelete
We are sweet. We are also really, really funny.Delete
me too. have to have a fan blowing on me though I did finally stop having hat flashes. now I just sweat.ReplyDelete
Exactly! And frankly, I love being sort of cold so that I can snuggle under my softer-than-anything little throw.Delete
Well, obviously, EVERYTHING needs to be put on hold until you get a replacement fan in place! That's some serious shit right there! My fan was chosen because it has three speeds, goes well with my bedroom decor (kind of), and mostly because the one on display was keeping a beach ball in the air. Who wouldn't want that! My back up fan is in the bathroom closet about eight feet from my side of the bed.ReplyDelete
I went to two drugstores and also to (shudder) Walmart and the size fan I want is absolutely not in stock anywhere in Tallahassee. They were bought up after Irma hit when people had enough generator power to run fans but not AC. I shall be patient.Delete
Fact - a fan is essential to a good night's sleep.ReplyDelete
Mr. Moon has built deer blinds before. Can't you just use the same one over and over? Are Gibson and Owen in on the vague deer blind building project?
He HAS built deer blinds before. But he has three (or four?) places where he puts them. Gibson and Owen are involved in the sense that they will be sitting in the one on their property come hunting season. Lily also claims that she's going to sleep in it this winter when she needs to get away from the house. No hunting will be involved in that situation.Delete
I just love.your.posts! Hope you got you a fan in town. Have a good day. BobbieReplyDelete
None in stock that I want. It's okay though. I not only have that pitiful one, I also have a really industrial strength floor fan that I can take into the bedroom and plug in. All will be well and eventually, I will find another fan like the one I had which is perfect for my needs.Delete
Scented laundry products. Now THERE's something I never thought about.ReplyDelete
I'd sit out that deer-blind event too. (I mistyped it "deer bling.")
Sorry the a/c and the fans have all teamed up against you! Super annoying!
Yep. I'm pretty sure that the reason native Americans and the early pioneers were so good at hunting was because they used no laundry products at all.Delete
