I’m sure there are girls out there who dream of gigantic rocks on their fingers or lavish vacations on the other side of the globe. And that’s totally fine. But for me, my dreams are much simpler.
A few days ago, for whatever reason, it felt like it was incredibly hot in my house. When I’m in an incredibly uncomfortable situation and there’s nothing I can do about it, I try to use the whole “mind over matter” trick. I mentally take myself some place where I was cold and comfortable. One of the best sleeps I ever had was while I was on a business trip in Dallas. We were put up at the Omni, which is a pretty nice hotel. For whatever reason, I discovered when I arrived that my roommate (another woman in the company) wouldn’t be coming. So they asked me if I would rather have one king size bed instead of two queen sized beds. Yes, absolutely, I said. They handed me a key and off I went to the 7th floor.
As soon as I got in that room, I kicked off my shoes, turned the a/c down to 65F, set an alarm for two hours later, and then starfished myself on that huge bed. Complete heaven. I love sleeping in the cold and wrapping myself up in a comforter. Plus, that bed was really comfortable. So when I have to sleep somewhere uncomfortable or too warm, I take myself to that wonderful ice box of a hotel room in the sky.
