I got up this morning, ran my arms and hands under really warm water, dried them and wrapped them in towels just out of the dryer and went back to bed until my husband called.  Tonight I am sleeping in Thermacare wraps and see if that will help.  They last 8 hours, I normally sleep about 6, so I should be good...I hope.
Oh, yeah, and I kicked my heat on.  It was 62 in the house.  Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Just wondering if you have tried those disposable hand warmers that you can find in sporting goods section of Walmart and other stores. Sometimes I see them in the check-out lines with all the "last minute" stuff. They are little square orange-colored plastic packets, you break them open and they stay warm for several hours. I put them in my husband's Christmas stockings, as he is a deer hunter....he loved them.

Anyway, you could place them in your hands, then slip a sock over your hand/arm.

Still running the a/c down here where I live...it hasn't even started feeling like autumn yet, but it will come soon. I hope you can get yourself warmed up so you can sleep comfortably. Take care.

You are not alone in kicking the heat on.

We have used it a few times already this year, but we certainly did not wait until it got to be 62 in the house. If it hits about 68, I have to kick the heat on until it hits at least 70. That is my comfortable temp in the fall and winter. The summer we keep the air on between 72 and 74. I can't stand much heat or much cold, LOL!

Good luck!
