Thanks Sky. My kiddo thought I went certifiable but my dogs agreed with me and laid down on the tile with me

I've been known to hose myself off, just like I do the horses. My well water is a steady 60 degrees summer and winter, so during a 90-100 degree day, that 60 degree water feels awfully good!

Oh, and although after my divorce I took back my maiden name, there's no need to call me Miss, 'cause I ain't missed a whole lot!

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

No, I have the opposite problem. If I cannot sleep in my (our) own bed, then I have a real difficulty falling asleep...especially if I am in a house that makes noises.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Sky, you are definitely not the only one. Heck, I went through a phase a few years ago where I would spend months at a time sleeping on the couch instead of my bed.

If it's really hot, I've been known to pack ice packs around me in bed...particularly down around my feet. For some reason, that is the part of me that never fails to tell exactly what my body temp is. If I'm cold, they are little blocks of ice, if I'm hot, they are like bricks straight out of the oven.

I've also spent my share of nights sleeping on the bathroom floor. Once was food poisoning from Sonic and the rest were....um....booze induced. My most, well, I can't say memorable because I don't remember much, but it was certainly an infamous instance was my 19th birthday party. Yep, downed a half a bottle of Crown on an empty stomach.


Yeahhh, that didn't end well at all.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Ouch!! Now I'm having flashbacks of my worst one of those nights...barber chair & upside down margaritas and then being spun in circles didn't fare so well for me.

Oh jeez :/ That definitely would suck :( Do you sleep fine in hotels or do you have trouble?

Aww haha! Well I'm glad that I'm not the only one and.. that.. you learned... a valuable lesson about drinking on an empty stomach.. I hope

No, hotels bother me too, I can be dead tired - but a hotel bed will wake me up like a whole pot of coffee. Then, I start thinking about how clean it is or isn't...uh oh.

And, you guys!!! Shape up!! Sky is having a sleeping trouble, not trouble drinking! :)

Oh, yes, learned that lesson very well. Only time in my life I've had a 2 day hangover LOL. Still can't stand the smell of Crown either.

you know, Sky, I am having a similar feeling, but it isn't associated with where I sleep. I just have a deadly case of "ennui". know what I mean? nothing is satisfying, I have not direction or clear purpose, just feel ever so restless and irritable. whereever I am, it feels that I should be somewhere else..

Nope, I need a bed and I cannot be in the slightest bit cold. So even in the middle of Summer I have a down comforter on my bed. In Winter I've been known to layer up to 3 down comforters. I even bring at least one to hotels with me.

Hubby on the other hand is permanently HOT and has disgustedly stomped off to sleep on the couch when I start adding more comforters to the bed.
