A heated mattress pad? Ive never seen one of those. Where did she get it? Does she leave it on all night? Wow, a heated mattress seriously I can only imagine how warm and toasty that is.
About three minutes into this conversation, all the other party goers had moved on to more festive discussions but I wasnt ready to let this go.
So, I pulled out my phone and started Googling it.
On Amazon. Dual temperature settings. Automatic cut off. Quilted. 250 Thread Count.
As I scanned the 79 reviews, my husband found me sitting in a corner, glued to my phone.
What are you looking at? Heated mattress pads? What is wrong with you? Its New Years Eve, put your phone down and come be with everyone!
I looked around the room.
Although I was amongst friends, in my heart of hearts, I really wanted to be in bed (it was 10:15 for goodness sake!), reading a book, laying on a heated mattress pad!!
And yet I had spent most of New Years Eve day watching television shows all about it being a New Year and a New You! And, I had promised myself, I would do just that in 2012.
I was going to join Becky at the gym. I was going to wear less black. I was going to be much more fun!
Yet, here I was on New Years Eve, scanning reviews of heated mattress pads.
And just as I was about to put away my phone and put on my New Years Eve tiara, I recalled another show I had watched that morning. A woman had decided to SAY YES to everything that came her way in 2011.
She had done just that and had changed her life.
So, I hit purchase and said YES to a Sunbeam Heated Mattress pad!
2012 is going to be the best year yet!
I will just have to wear more black to compensate for my not joining a gym
