Let there be light (occasionally for the worse)

For years, we had a problem with our old venetian blinds--our living room and master bedroom, each of which has two side-by-side windows, had only one venetian blind each, forcing us to put props between the slats to allow air-conditioned air to escape.  But recently, we replaced all of our blinds with separate blinds for each window.  Having separate blinds enables us to preserve our privacy and still enjoy the chilled air simply by raising the blinds in front of the air conditioners.

Much to our surprise, though, this solution has created another problem--every morning without fail, Ms. Light-Sleeper here is awakened at the crack of dawn by sunlight streaming in through the narrow gap between the blinds.

Sigh.  You win some, you lose some.
