The people I was with and I basically have a bedtime routine with the teenagers now; When it’s time for bed, every one of us adjust the temperature control settings so the air conditioner system kicks on a little.
This allows the teenagers to guess easily relaxed and ready to fall asleep.
I say goodnight to our child and then read a bed night story to our younger daughter. She cares about being read to just savor her older brother used to savor a good deal; By the time the teenagers are asleep, I adjust the temperature control settings in our dining room. The people I was with and I have Heating, Ventilation, and A/C zone control so every one of us are able to have customized temperature control settings in different rooms. I tend to crank the air conditioner up to a silly level because I care about being absolutely cold at night and keeping the covers slender against me. This drives my wifey silly because she regularly complains about it being too cold. I’ve absolutely been thinking about getting one of those beds with the built in temperature control. Then my wifey could turn on the heating mechanism and be perfectly toasty while I crank the air conditioner system. I guess that would be a good compromise for us. Because no matter how multiple times she tells me not to crank the air conditioner system so much, I just can’t help it. I need the great air conditioner to help drift me off to sleep, occasionally my wifey sneaks and adjusts the temperature control settings after I fall asleep, but then that wakes me up! After that I simply adjust the temperature control settings again and try to fall straight back to sleep.
