dunno about you, but i am a bit of a "princess & the pea" type sleeper - can't stand even so much as a wrinkle in my sheets. i can feel the wires in the heated mattress pad through the sheets :( i LOVE the warmth, but prefer the heated blanket because you aren't laying on the wires . . . i use rice pillows (small pillows made of dried rice that can be heated in the microwave - stay warm for about 45 mins) on my feet cuz they are always like ice bergs (drives hubby nuts!) and kick them out of the bed once my feet have gotten warm - they work well also for pre-warming the bed - heat them up, lay them in between the sheets about 25 mins before bed . . . . lovely warm, no wires, no controls to worry about :) i have directions on how to make them if you would like :)
There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.
