The Green Eyed Monster
If you want to torture me...put me in a room with a light on all night. I am one of those people that need complete darkness to sleep,
I'll admit, I wasn't watching when the security system people (while building our new house), slipped this keypad into the wall of our bedroom....directly in line with my side of the bed . For about five months now, I have been suffering, and covering my head with a pillow. There are two (bright), green lights on the device ...and no way to turn them off.. Well, I finally got around to solving the problem. Do you see the three little Velcro circles along the top? Love Velcro! Well, I installed them..Which means I peeled them off of a piece of paper and stuck them there.
Then, I cut a piece of vinyl leather like fabric (found it at a fabric store), measured to fit. Final step: attaching the corresponding Velcro circles , and problem solved! Why did I not think of this sooner?! I will only cover it at bedtime...but oh I am so happy....and may just be a whole lot nicer with a proper nights sleep!
How could one persons life be so different from winter to summer? Well stick around and see. I live in a cosmopolitan city half of the year and then head to a tiny town in the mountains the other half.....a place full of interesting people, beautiful scenery, wild animals......and great adventures!
