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.
I do the half side, half stomach thing too! If I am alone in the bed I sometimes lie diagonally, but there isn't room for me to do that if we are both there. So you're not the only one doing the hokey pokey!

I don't flip my pillow but I flip my body around all night. One side, then the other, feet in then out, a brief stint on my back. It's exhausting!

I'm not really a pillow flipper. Although, during the night I do seem to reverse my pillow if I'm awake to turn over.

As for temp, my feet are my thermometer. When I'm too warm, I just stick my feet out. Too chilly, tuck them back in under the covers.

Don't wear much or anything most of the time when sleeping and our bed room isn't heated, so the dual-control electric blanket is our source of warmth during the colder months. Most of the time I don't rely on the electric blanket, which is supplemented by 2 goose down comforters. Much prefer the comforters.

I don't flip my pillow as much as I do my DH--:) Luckily he moves over immediately when I "roll" him. He has terrible allergies and the last two weeks that he's been in Texas (he leaves tomorrow to back to K.) have been miserable for both of us. I've been up since 2:30 this morning wide awake from his coughing attacks and have not gotten a full night's rest since he's been here. I feel so sorry for him but at least when he takes the medicine it does help but doesn't last the whole night through unfortunately. But he's capable of rolling back to sleep and I'm not. I told him that when we are back in the states full time that he needed to get allergy tested.

I would love to say that I don't snore, and I don't think I snore very much, but...

I have actually woken myself up as I started to snore. It usually just happens if I am sitting in my computer chair and start to fall asleep there.

And what about talking in your sleep? I know that I talk in my sleep sometimes, but I'm not sure if I still do or how much. James doesn't talk in his sleep very often, but when he does he speaks so clearly that you wouldn't even realize he is asleep. The other night he was asleep in his chair. When I fast-forwarded the TV show, causing the sound to stop for a few seconds, he very cheerfully said, "Hi!" He does that a lot when it suddenly gets quiet. Or he will do this cute little laugh when that happens. He was really talkative that night though. He said a couple things that night. The last one was really weird. His eyes popped open, he looked directly at me, and said (clear as day), "Oh that's right..." (There was more but it would embarrass him--nothing bad, but not something he would like me to share). He is sure I am making it up and that he didn't do that, but he did, and it was so weird!

I just got the gas bill. No window open and bill over $200! If I do open a window, imagine how much it would be? Is it warm where you are? I do like the 'fresh air' at night but I can't afford it.

Oh, I only flip the pillow when I 'have' to get up at night. Otherwise, I guess I sleep right through it.

Oh no its not warm at night its freezing.First of all I keep the bedroom door shut and the thermostat is down the hall so it isnt affected.I also turn thermostat down at night I have a big chest or drawers on top of the vent in the bedroom it kinda warms up the room anyway.I also sleep with a very well filled goose down comforter meant for the winter. In the morning I turm heat off as soon as the sun comes up it heats the house nicely but its murder in the summer. When the sun starts to go down I turn on the heat a little.
In the summer the windows stay shut blinds drawn air conditioner on, in the evening air conditioner is shut off and windows are open.
I dont know what our power bill is as its provided with the housing the ranch gives us. But I can almost guarantee you we use less power than anyone on the ranch.Also the ranch switched out all the regular light bulbs to less energy bulbs.I dont like alot of light at night so save some energy on top of that as well. Right now its only 40 degrees in the shade. Not bad at all unless the wind picks up.
