hot and then cold…. and then hot again.

Yes, that’s a Katy Perry song.
No, that’s not what I’m writing about.

Now that I share a bed (with the love of my life) – I cannot seem to find a steady temperature while I sleep.

I wake up and she’s got the covers = cold.
I wake up and I’ve got the covers = nice.
I wake up and we’re both under the covers = stifling hot.

We never actually tested this out in Boy Scouts, but I can confidently confirm that if you’re cold you just need to cuddle up with another body. The only problem is that if it’s not cold – then you’re going to be really, really hot.

I know I’m a newbie to this whole ‘”sharing the bed” thing – so maybe it’s a balance that is somehow found in time.
Maybe not.

*For the record – I’m not complaining, just commenting on a another slight adjustment to being married!

I can actually see our Nephite counterparts struggling with the same issue. There’s probably no mattress, but still I bet Nephi’s wife sometimes took the blankets in the middle of the night and left him shivering. Or maybe she chucked them over to his side so he baked. Who knows…

It’d be nice if I could just sleep so deeply that temperature was a non-issue…

“And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam…” (Genesis 2:21)

Yes! A sleep caused by the Lord (not death – the ultimate sleep) would be nice!

? Am I the only one struggling the the nightly temperature thing?

It will take a little while to find a comfortable sleeping arrangement…but until then, if you get too hot try kicking one leg out from under blankets. That works miracles!!

I learned early to sleep on 1/8 of the bed and get an extra cover.
