You never heard the phrase: "Cooler than the other side of your pillow"

Same here. I cannot sleep when it's hot, and that includes pillowcases, sheets, etc. I sleep in the natural and without any sheets on for the most part (I start out uncovered but usually wake up with my feet under a sheet). My whole family on the other hand is the exact opposite. They have to be completely covered up. My parents live in hot, humid Florida and my Mom will in the dead heat of summer sleep under at least 3 blankets (no kidding!), I don't see how she can do it. I was just home last month and was utterly miserable. My parents don't believe in air-conditioning and I couldn't sleep the whole time I was home; and I wasn't about to raise their electricity bill just to keep me comfortable (they are both retired and on a fixed income).

My dad is cold-natured and my mom was hot-natured. She said that for a while whenever he noticed that she was uncovered he would "help" her and cover her up. She finally convinced him that she kicked the covers off on purpose!

LOL That reminded me of another story about my mom. When my uncle died my dad had to fly back to Missouri. My mom was worried about him flying and she didn't think she would be able to sleep, so she asked me to sleep on my dad's side of their bed the first night. I hardly slept that night because I was afraid my tossing and turning would bother my mom. I found out the next day that she didn't sleep well either because I was so still!

Hey mikki, how are you doing?

I flip in the summer, but not in the winter. In the winter, we use a flannel sheet set with a blanket and a quilt handmade by my stepmother. I'm too hot with the quilt, so I just use the sheet and blanket, but DH usually uses all three layers. Sometimes I stick my feet out to cool off some.

Wow.... I don't flip the pillow, but tend to sleep with my head towards the edge of the pillow so it does not block my nasal passages. I can't stand the feeling of not being able to get enough fresh air... specially when I'm sleeping.

I'm a pillow-fluffer-upper, and sleep warm except for the summer. Sleep with no less than four large pillows, rotate & fluff ... & a top sheet, vellux blanet & two comforters, & an open window - even though I live in a warm climate. Then... I like to bury my head under all the covers. My idea of Heaven - a big warm bed with lots & lots & lots of pillows & soft blankies. I miss my heated waterbed.

And, I skeered of those dust mites... so I keep my pillows and mattress protected - rotate & flip.

I have to have my head at the edge too. I think James thinks I am making it up, but if his arm or shoulder get within an inch or two of my nose I start to feel like I am suffocating and have to pull back or push him away. Suffocation is one of my biggest "death" fears. I don't know if that is because of the feeling I get when things get too near my face or if I have the feeling because of the fear.

I almost forgot--speaking of how we like to sleep, we are finally getting a new bed this weekend! The bed that came in this house was new at the time, but it is a really cheap quality bed. Springs are popping out all over, it has a sharp downward slope to the right, and it is only a double. James and I are not teeny people and that bed has been giving us horrible backaches, headaches, etc. Our new bed will be an extra-firm Queen. Yay!

I'm the craziest sleeper on the planet. Not only do I flip my pillow (several times even)
stick my foot out of the blanket and back in ( I do the hokey pokey I swear ) with the blankets all the way up to my chin. I have my own blankets since I'm a blanket hog.

But I also have a thing for laying diagnol (s/p) in the bed, half on my stomace and half on my side. Oh yes, I'm a bed hog too. He won't let me get my own bed though so he's s.o.l. Otherwise I'm just not comfortable.
