Winter and Heated Sleeping Pads

Hi all my dear and sweet friends,

I will share some information about the heated sleeping pad for my bed at the end of this thread, however wanted to first say hello and hope this finds everyone thinking about a nice weekend and hopefully not to terribly painful. It rained here in Virginia all weekend, at least in Luray Virginia. My children and I went on a mini vacation leaving Friday afternoon and returning Sunday afternoon. My two older children in their 20's and my 18 year old along with my sons wife to be went to Luray Caverns this weekend with me. We made the best of the rain (total pain of course) because it had been several years since we have spent vacation together not that they are grown. We saw two movies, the one, The Greatest Game was very good. I'm not a golfer, but the movie made by Disney was very good. I believe a true story, not sure though. We also went bowling, to a bed and breakfast for dinner Saturday night and a Haunted House Saturday evening. It was such a fun weekend. I really miss spending more time with my to change that.

The heated mattress pad folks, I got it last year and for those of you who have a problem with sleep and the cold is a life saver. I still have problems sleeping, but last year it was the best thing I ever did for myself. I brought it at a higher end dept store, but not the most costly dept store.

Works well! Hope it helps someone who may be looking for a way to help the stiffness for this winter. Not the miracle cure, but anything helps.

Hugs to you all!!! Annie

Hi Wishin,

Glad you able to get away for a bit. It is just ashame we cannot leave the pain behind.

Is This an electric heating pad or what? Does it have a name? I would be interested in checking this out.

Right now I could use a heating sleeping bag, I ache all ver. We have had terrible rains here in Pa. lots of flooding. It is so damp, great for pain, not.

Hugs, Linda

Re: Winter and Heated Sleeping Pads

Wishn how wonderful for you and your family, we can always tolerate some pain when it means enjoying our children and family. It makes me feel good that things are looking so much brighter for you, the new job and being able to relax and spend time with the people that really matter. When things are better in our lives, makes us wonder why we spent so much time and energy putting up with bad bosses or work situations or whatever. I guess they were just learning experiences to make the good times that much sweeter.

Peace and pain free days.
