I am one lucky girl

So let me brag today about the best man in the whole wide world...MY husband.

Two nights ago it was 90+ degrees in our bedroom and I simply couldn't sleep. I went downstairs (which has a room air conditioner) and TRIED to sleep on the sofa which is an old sofabed. Now I don't know if you know anything about old sofabeds, but they are made of heavy steel and aren't quite comfortable in the sofa position (and since we don't have an actual mattress for the old sofabed, there is no chance of actually pulling it out and using it as a bed). So...I TRIED to sleep on the old sofabed sofa (how many times CAN I use the word sofa in one post? sofa, sofa, sofa...what a strange word. French...from Arabic. and it sounds weird if you say it enough. but I digress).

Anyway...

As I'm sure you could tell from yesterday's woe-is-me post, I was particularly tired and cranky after getting very little sleep on the old sofabed sofa. And yesterday was even hotter than the day before...which meant I was facing another LONG night on the old sofabed sofa.

So what does my husband do?

He takes us (and at least one of us was in a really bad mood) out to McDonald's for dinner and then to Home Depot to BUY AN AIR CONDITIONER FOR OUR BEDROOM!!!

I love that man!!!

I was so exhausted from the previous night's lack of sleep that I slept through and only got up to pee ONCE! Cool sheets...a cool breeze...the hum of the air conditioner for white noise. It was heaven!

I woke up this morning when Steve headed out to the barn to feed the horses and gave him a kiss and a thank you...even before we had brushed our teeth! Yes, I risked morning breath kisses (and that is huge for anyone who has ever experienced pregnancy gag reflexes). That is how thankful I was to him!

Just so nobody thinks I'm too spoiled...We had actually budgeted for this purchase in our home renovation loan but weren't sure we were going to be able to buy it when the living room ceiling collapsed and revealed structural issues that needed to be addressed. Luckily it all worked out. Because I would not have survived the summer on that old sofabed sofa. And given the fact that this is really only the second HOT day we've had this year...I have to give credit to my husband for making it happen.

I think your Steve needs to talk with my Steve about this how to handle a pregnant lady in the summer and keep her happy. ;)

Should a man treat his pregnant wife any different? I hope not;)

What a sweetie:)

That was so nice of Steve to do that. I do have to say though that I find it so strange when people don't have central heat or air. Here in Florida there is no way we could do with out Central Air. My first home did not have central heat or air and that was the first thing I did to renovate teh house. Glad you will get cool nights now.

Hey, yes you can link me. That is not how these people found me. I told somebody about my blog. Big mistake. I don't think they will run around looking for me though. At least I hope not.

What a wonderful & thoughtful husband Steve is:)

I am so happy that you will be able to sleep well this summer.

Yay for the air conditioner and Steve! Not necessarily in that order.

And I had no idea that sofa originally comes from Arabic. I'll have to look into this.

Steve is such a sweet guy!! You guys make a great pair!!

Yay Steve!

We are getting central air, though we did not budget for it & therefore now need to put off either our porch columns or our front door installation. (or our property taxes, ha ha i wish) But the heat of some of these days has been *unreal*. And i am not a person who typically likes air conditioning. Chalk it up to global warming.
