I want that......

I am sitting here, hot, sweaty, cold, and burning.  No I am not writing from an asylum or a grill, or an oven near my satanic fridge, i am writing from my upstairs bedroom.

I have to keep a slew of pillows and blankets around.  My husband and I can't sleep in the same bed or room because I move too much, can't fall asleep, stay up later, he snores (definitely not me.  I NEVER snore)  Our marriage is much better with separate bedrooms or at least separate beds.  My son and I have bedrooms and sleep on the second floor.  There are two other bedrooms available on this level.  My husband, (and at one time son too) sleeps in the basement because it's always cool.  I envy him.  I'd sleep down there if there were a bathroom in the basement.  I would need many more blankets and pillows though.

What I want is a special magical blanket.  I am looking at my electric blanket, and sitting on my microgel mattress topper.  Why can't they make electric cooling blankets, mattress pads or gel top mattress pad.  We have electric blankets.  When we went to New Zealand (one summerwinter..our summer their winter) in June we were introduced to heating mattress pads.  Bliss!!  My aching body felt like it had been sleeping on a huge heating pad.  We looked around stores down there and found the heated mattress pads in the 'Manchester' section...that was confusing.

Technology can send people to the moon, make non stick cookware, self cleaning littter boxes, cell phones that do all sorts of stuff.  Why can technology not make an electric cooling blanket and/or mattress pad.  I could cover up the parts of me that end up freezing while the rest of me burns.  The burning parts could be soothed with cooling blankets, and a mattress pad.

Hopefully my wonderful son will become brilliant, start using his naughty for good and make electric cooling blankets....but only if they aren't secret mind control devices urging us to open our wallets to him, allow him to play xbox all day and night, while we do his chores.  My son should not make a mind control device, unless it sends out waves and suggestions to be kinder to one another.

Okay so this'll sounds weird BUT...

Go to the pet store. Or on Amazon. Whatever. Basically you can get gel COOLING BLANKETS for dogs - I think they're meant to taking with you when you are on a long car journey so they can spread out on them and keep cool BUT its certainly worth a grope to see if they'd be any use to you! Apparently the dogs find them very effective and its easier than trying to put your pillow in the fridge for half an hour before bedtime! :)

What a fantastic idea!! I would definitely buy an electric cooling blanket. I'm surprised they don't exist for humans. I wonder how big the dog ones are? Maybe you'd need a few of them sewn together to have it a decent size...and the people at the pet store would look at you like you had nine heads if you bought ten of them! It'd be worth it though.
