Hello sweet friends. I have to share something with you that has made mommy squeal with delight. And we all know that if mommy is happy, we are *all* happy. Am I right? Well mom is hot. Okay well dad says that all of the time – rolls piggy eyes. But I’m talking about another kind of hot – like the temperature outside. H.O.T. It doesn’t help that it’s in the middle of the Summer and outside there are temps – Hot and H.O.T.T.E.R than hell here in the south.
Mom has been doing a lot of research on bedding for her/dad’s king size bed. She came across two things that she said had to help her out at night when trying to sleep in this heat. The first was Dri-Tec sheets. Now these sheets are like those shirts that guys wear when they are working out – the ones that pull the moisture from their body. These sheets are like that. So you can sleep and not worry about feeling ‘wet’ from being overly hot. I mean heck if it works for those moisture wicking shirts, why not bedding right? I mean the air conditioning is on here but mom is going through that change – wink wink – if you know what I mean. Okay I don’t know what I mean. I just keep hearing mom say that to daddy. If you know, let me know okay.
Then mom found a special pillow that she had to have. This pillow has cool/heat touch technology. I know you are asking yourself what the heck does that mean – cool/heat tough technology. I’m glad you asked because I had to ask daddy too. Supposedly in theory, the memory foam in this pillow is such that you don’t have to keep turning your pillow over and over in the middle of the night AND the pillow actually stays cool to the touch – not cold but cool.
So mom tells daddy to fork over the credit card because desperate times call for desperate measures. Since mommy is going through the ‘change’ thing, daddy was smart and said go for it. Mom went to the store and bought these two items. Immediately when she came home, she remade the bed and was all giddy about going to bed early that night. Now, I don’t get it. You just changed sheets and added a pillow and this made mom smile a mile long with excitement. Women.
So do they work? It’s been almost three weeks now since mom over indulged and bought these sheets and her special pillow. Instead of asking mom does it work, I asked dad. Because I knew dad would give me an unbiased opinion. Dad said the sheets feel awesome on your body. They are smooth and silky but not like silk sheets where you slide off to the other side of the bed. These like comfort you and hold you. And as far as mom’s special pillow. Daddy laughed at my question. He said that mom’s head touches her pillow and within minutes she is out like a light in the deepest sleep that he can remember. Dad’s conclusion is that the sheets and pillow were expensive but making mom happy while sleeping is priceless.
Please note: we at the Hotel Thompson were not compensated in any way for our opinion on these products.

seems tonight a lot of cards get a last kiss from a lot of dads… but what’s a card when you get a happy mom? … so well dad fork over that card, I want a happy mama too …
08/25/2016 at 12:54 pm
Exactly! And let me tell you something, those two items rock – especially mom’s special pillow. Mommy walks around refreshed and happy now… sometimes dad even has to push her out of bed in the morning to go to work she’s so comfortable. XOXO – Bacon

How I laughed out loud! The change is all about when a woman is hot all the time and her brain chemistry going bonkers. LOL Tell her a fan is an excellent convenience to run while sleeping. I have an overhead one that I have running all the time. Those sheets sound heavenly. I will have to look into it cause when a Mom doesn’t get good sleep, the whole house is off. Moms are the best especially a well rested mom! ❤
08/25/2016 at 1:53 pm
YES! Mom has a fan that she turns on every night in their room as well. That helps her to ‘tune out’… whatever that means. But as long as mommy is happy and well rested, all is good in the world – LOL. XOXO – Bacon
08/25/2016 at 1:54 pm
Since I’m the Mom, I KNOW what you mean exactly!! Glad to know things are happy. LOL
08/25/2016 at 1:37 pm
So happy your mommy is happy and I am going to look into those sheets
08/25/2016 at 1:53 pm
If you have the choice over sheets vs that pillow, go pillow first. That pillow is like moms security blanket now. She brings it everywhere! XOXO – Bacon
08/25/2016 at 1:45 pm
Cool my fiance needs this! Thanks for the share
08/25/2016 at 1:54 pm
Buy these sheets and the special pillow for your fiance’. She will love you FOREVER. XOXO – Bacon

Oh, I know about that change, little oinker. Human fertility and human life span are not the same for female humans. Nor are they for male or oinkers or anybody, but for most species that is just the part at the beginning of life where they are not fertile. For female humans it is also the last “half” or third of life, where we cannot have babies anymore. And that phase, my little oinker is not coming at once but gradually and like the time when fertility starts there are some side-effects, one is that we are still hot – but now it comes in flushes …
08/25/2016 at 1:55 pm
Oh yes! Mom walks around hot one minute, cold the next minute, hungry not hungry, angry in 8 seconds flat and then crying. This change stuff is the pits! Snorts and oinks. XOXO – Bacon
08/25/2016 at 2:06 pm
It is up to 7 years – though some are faster through, others do not have many of those side-effects anyway …

My daddy’s the one who wakes up in the middle of the night all hot and sweaty, not mom. She says he’s having MAN-O-Paws or something like that. I’ll have to let her know about these super cool sheets and pillow!
08/25/2016 at 3:41 pm
Definitely do it – the pillow mom absolutely can’t live without. She loves it. XOXO – Bacon

WOW! Mom is just going through major hot flashes and the summer weather here is so not helping. We need to have a word with Mother Nature. Mother Nature should know these things and try not to make it worse for our moms for sure. Mom also has crying spells. I caught her crying over a commercial the other day! Can you believe that? Shaking my piggy head. Humans are weird. XOXO – Bacon

Oh my friend – they are heaven. I climbed up with mommy last night to sleep (I had a piggymare and needed my mommy). Those sheets – OMP! They felt awesome for sure! XOXO – Bacon

These are essential items and not indulgences. So glad Mom got them. As for the change? Believe me , you can live happier knowing nothing about it. ❤❤❤
