Ugh!! So you think you have it all covered. You look over every aspect and troubleshoot every detail you can think of and then BAM, something smacks you in the face that you didn’t see coming. Yup – that was me. And can I tell you that it just SUCKS when you miss something so crazy obvious? You want to beat yourself up over it. But you can’t. Just get over it am move on. We are human after all. I know, easier said then done.
But it has to be done.
So what happened you ask? We are finishing the walls in the Safe Room. I was so excited about the Green Glue a friend told me about to partially soundproof the room so the Boy could have a place where the sensory stimulus would be lessened dramatically.
We are halfway done and realized that the odor is INSENSE. The Boy’s room is small. Just large enough to have a window seat, closet, bed and sensory swing. So when he went in there and closed the door – WOW is all I can say. And it is all of 20 degrees so opening a window to get some fresh air in there is tricky. I did it – but BOY was it cold!!
So, although I am still very excited about getting the other 1/2 of the room done I will have to put my thinking cap on and figure this one out. The odor didn’t seem to give him a headache, but the first night he did come out in the middle of the night to sleep on a chair in the living room. I know it was bothersome, but I’m not sure how bothersome.
I’m thinking I’ll try Purification essential oil in my diffuser to see if it will help.
Wish me luck!!
