The war of the sheets

My husband and I are encountering what must be an age old problem in the bedroom: to tuck or not to tuck?

I happen to like my bed covers tucked in at the foot of the bed. It keeps my feet from getting cold, and keeps the covers in a tidy manner, so you don't end up with too much sheet and not enough blanket, and vice versa. It is very handy for making the bed in the morning.

My husband is a huge proponent of leaving things untucked. He says he likes to coccoon himself in the covers, which if you ask me, is quite rude and selfish for someone who shares a bed. His feet work of their own free will to untuck the bed throughout the night, and inevitably I will wake up with cold feet. Why? Because the bed is untucked!

We came to a compromise, I tuck my side of the bed and leave his untucked, but that never works, because somehow those busy feet find their way to untucking my side of the bed. I'm getting tired of waking up with cold feet, especially now that winter is coming.

I'm not sure what a girl is supposed to do, or if we will ever find a peaceful solution to this problem. But for now, it is all out war! We'll see how hubby likes it when I short sheet the bed...

I make the bed-- so I get to do it the way I like it-- tucked in!! And I mean really tucked in- lol! But it's so chilly at night now that I also put on my thick socks and kick them off in the middle of the night when I am warm.

Sexy thermal socks and seperate duvets. Love him to bits but we are different creatures. He's warm blooded and I am cold blooded. What's a girl supposed to do. BTW girls looks sexier in thermal socks than boys. What can you do?

I just keep re-tucking the bottom corner on his side every morning anyway.. hasn't been a problem just yet.

But now that I'm thinking about it.... grr.

I ditto traveller one... I make the bed so I make it how I like it. Plus I like my whole body covered with a loose sheet I have found myself very warm around the neck but freezing cold in the rest of the body.

I don't make the bed. But I can't be dealing with the tucked-in sheets. My feet get hot, so I actually sleep with them completely outside the covers.
