Of course, with him being busy, and working nights, we don't get many opportunities to sleep in the same bed. Which is definitely a major bummer, particularly as things are getting colder.
See, I think my deep love for everyone draws extra blood to my heart, thus leaving my extremities super chilly like, all the time. So when I crawl into bed, my hands and feet are freezing. Normally, this is where my awesome hubby comes in. Generally, I curl up with him and warm up. Sadly, that is not an option right now.

There is nothing quite like climbing into an already-warm bed when I've finished watching my Netflix streaming episode of last season's 30 Rock. Curling up with a good read is much more enjoyable when I can feel my fingers and toes. I much prefer falling asleep because I'm just tired rather than because I've exhausted myself from shivering.
It certainly doesn't make up for my husband. I still completely look forward to evenings when we get to spend the night together and I'm very excited for when he moves back to a more regular work schedule. But in the meantime, I am thankful for my awesome electric blanket.
