I was always that kid who would bug her parents “are we there yet?” on family vacations. Half of the time, I wanted us to reach our destination early because of my small bladder! Fast-forwarding to the present day, not much has changed. Many highway stops and work breaks throughout the day to get me through. In addition, my water intake has increased dramatically due to my half marathon training and staying hydrated. Therefore, as you could imagine, bathroom trips are frequent and have no set time. But, I have to say the worst time to use to bathroom for me, is in the middle of the night. To truly feel rested and stay that way through the night, I bump up my AC system so I can feel very cool and snuggle in my fluffy down comforter for a full eight hours. Therefore, when I’m feeling great, and resting on an icy cloud and my bladder wakes me up to pee, I cannot help but feel mad and sad at the same time. The floorboards make me feel like I’m walking a plank of ice from a boat that has been stationed in Antarctica for 8 months! The concept of heated flooring is extremely appealing to me and I’m sure it is for many people like me who can’t stand to sleep with socks on! Getting out of bed would be a whole lot easier knowing that I would be welcomed by warmth throughout my toes, arches and heels. Let alone the bathroom tile…I would love to step out of the shower and feel a cool air and warm floor. I think the invention is awesome and I definitely need to look into having it installed.
