Yesenia had to get up at 4:30 this morning, to be out of the house by five, to be at the office by 7:15. Then she didn't get home until after 7 PM. In spite of all of this, she seemed to be in a pretty good mood, but was pretty beat down by the heat. So I suggested that we head off to Lowe's after dinner to pick up an air conditioner for the bedroom. Neither she or I really liking sleeping in AC, but she couldn't sleep much last night and I'm sure tonight would be worse.
Picked up a very small Frigidaire that's supposed to work for rooms about 150 square feet (our bedroom is probably closer to 200), and with it on high, it's managing to make the room comfortable, if not chilly. Which is exactly what I like air conditioning for.
Why so small? Well, apart from being pretty damn cheap ($99), we figured that when the heatwave passes, we'll have no use for it, but when we have guests it would be good to offer them the option of not sweltering for the night - and the guest room actually is about 150 square feet, so there you are.
