Wow, after several years ive decided to try and resurrect this little blog of mine. I recently told a friend I missed having a place to write. Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

Fire & Ice - What's your sleep temp?

How do you sleep?  Are you a cold sleeper or do you like to be warm? 

Personally I like to be cold. Really cold.  It's proven that people sleep better when their body temp is cooler.  I have to agree with this.  I sleep much sounder when I am cold.  If I am too hot I toss and turn and wake up all night trying to uncover myself or take off clothes if need be.  If you are cold you can always put another blanket on or put on a hoodie or socks.  In general I like to be cold anyway, I am not one for hot weather.

Kris on the other hand, and Aiden for that matter, would rather be toasty warm when they sleep.  By toasty warm I mean sweaty.  Aiden is easy, we keep the heat a bit warmer in his room and he sleeps fine.  He wakes up if he gets cold so we've learned.  Kris on the other hand is starting to kill me when we sleep at night!  It's been in the 80's-90's around here and doesn't really cool down too much overnight, perhaps 60's in the am.  I like to sleep with a fan pointed right on me {in this heat I won't lie - there are 2 on in our room but only 1 points to the bed} and I like the window open to get that cold breeze at 4am.  Kris keeps turning off or turning down the fan that points at our bed, he keeps taking his warm body and curling up next to be and well, I've been suffocating! 

The last 2 nights I have slept in a top only, not full pj's, and sleeping on top of the covers.  I still wake up hot during the night.  It's driving me crazy.  He sleeps in a muscle shirt and basketball shorts and complains he is cold.  I keep asking him to put on a hoodie or sweats and let me keep the fans going on high.  I can't wait for the weather to cool down so I can finally sleep comfortably again!

So tell me - do you sleep better when you are warm or when you are cold?  There is a handy little poll at the top of the blog - I'm interested to know if I'm alone in wanting to be a block of ice when I sleep.

I like to bundle up under the covers in the summer (with the AC on of course!) and in the winter I like a toasty room and less coverings.

I can't sleep without a blanket over me, and so for this reason I like the room cold with a fan going. And I try and go to sleep with my hair wet so that the fan cools off my head. So I think that makes me a cold sleeper? Plus a blanket? haha. My husband seriously is like a space heater body temperature wise, but thankfully he likes the room really cold too!
