The girl in the closet
Due to poor planning on our part, our apartment is next to a major road. Most nights this isn't a real problem. The sound of the traffic lulls us to sleep. But lately the major road has become a major problem. Because people travel this road at all hours of the day, it is next to impossible to shut down the lanes to do construction and repairs. Because the traffic is lighter at night, they work on the road at night, which they have been doing the past couple of nights. I get up at 5:30 every morning to go to work, therefore I
like need to sleep, and this night construction has presented a slight problem. Last night, I had had enough. It was after midnight and I all I could hear was the constant "beep" "beep" "beep" of the construction vehicles. Husband kindly suggested I set up camp in our walk-in closet. I was willing to give it a try (I was also willing to drag my butt to a hotel, but Husband did not think that would be a practical solution). So there I was, at o'dark thirty, settling in to my temporary bed in our closet, hoping to get at least a couple of hours of sleep. Much to my surprise I had the best sleep I've had in weeks! I may start sleeping in the closet all the time. I could totally fit a cot in there...if I move all of Husband's stuff out! I'm sure he won't mind.
