When night time comes around, there’s nothing I love more than snuggling deep under the covers and being all warm and cozy. In order to make that happen though, it needs to be on the cooler side to keep from sweating. Where I used to be, this was a bit of a challenge, especially during the summer months. My roommate liked to keep the thermostat up a little higher than I did during the nights, and my room didn’t come with a ceiling fan, so I had to find a way to compensate. For awhile, I couldn’t think of anything and was constantly suffering at night. I would even resort to sneaking out after my roommate went to bed and adjusting the thermostat without her knowing. Unfortunately, my roommate liked to go to bed later than I did, so that resolution proved to be a bit problematic from the get go. I finally decided that I had to make do without a thick blanket. Even though I loved being all snugly in bed under thick covers, I realized that was the only thing I could change in the situation of my discomfort. After coming to this conclusion, I had to think about the kind of blanket that would suffice. The only blankets I really knew about were either throw blankets or comforters, so I was at a bit of a loss. I was shopping in a Target one day and discovered that quilts existed. I didn’t think they actually made quilts for beds. The only time I had ever seen a quilt was on a TV show where someone’s grandma sewed one for decoration. It was the perfect solution to my problem. I didn’t need to worry about how low the air conditioner was. I could still snuggle up under the covers as much as I want, but the quilt wasn’t thick enough to cause any discomfort. It was a great solution!
