Ode to a ceiling fan

One of the best things about upgrading from an apartment to a “house” — especially one recently built — was the upgrade in fixtures. I’ve lived in apartments for so long that I forgot what it was like to have light fixtures, ceiling fans, etc. (Or, maybe it’s just that I’ve been living in the wrong apartments.

One of the great things about my new place is that I actually have three ceiling fans — one that keeps the air circulating upstairs in the bonus room, one in the living room and one in the master bedroom.

The one in the master bedroom is my favorite.

For the past couple of years, my allergies have been getting annoying. During the day, they are usually just a minor annoyance. But, at night, they were causing me to wake up horribly congested. I know that they have also been impacting my sleep quality because on the days I would wake up feeling the most congested were also days that I would feel the most fatigued.

One of the first things I noticed after moving in to the new townhouse was even after the first night, I didn’t wake up congested. I had over a month of mornings where I felt good, and it felt like I was sleeping better as well.

I’m on a business trip this week and staying in a hotel. The past two mornings have been pretty lousy with a stuffed up nose, watery eyes, and a junky chest.

I’m looking forward to getting home this weekend and sleeping underneath my ceiling fan.
