The scroll wheel on my mouse is broken.

I am seriously having a hard time living right now.

Friday, February 11, 2011

I always sleep better when my bedroom is cold, but it's starting to get ridiculous.  My room has always been badly insulated, and the window worse still, but I've never been unable to fall asleep because I've been cold before.  My usual sleeping attire is made up of my enormous winter fluffy socks, long pj pants, a t-shirt under a hoodie; then I sleep under a sheet, comforter, quilt and afghan.  Last night I finally caved and put a second comforter on my bed.

I woke up and I was tired - not because I hadn't slept, but because all my covers were so heavy.  It must have been like exercise while I slept to roll over and such.

I've been thinking about getting a heated mattress pad or an electric blanket, but they can be kind of pricey.  There are cheap ones, sure, but then I see an imaginary set of scales, with money going down on one side while my likelihood of dying in a house fire goes up on the other.
