This is one of those posts that I figure a lot of people will identify with. As the weather is getting colder, We've started to think a little more about the bedding at home. My DW and I share a queen-sized bed and we have a fitted sheet on the mattress and a down comforter in a cover on top of it. In the summer time, we usually forgo the comforter and just use the cover. To say that DW and I have different thermostats is an understatement. In the summer time, she seems to shed heat while in the winter, her fingers and toes can be, well, downright icy. While I'm sure that she'd disagree, I tend to be too hot in the summer and comfortably warm in the winter. She likes to take advantage of the fact that I'm warm by heating her freezing toes on the backs of my calves.
While I am often accused of hogging the comforter, this seems to go both ways. Sometimes I am responsible and sometimes she is. I think it all boils down to who is tossing and turning more. It really shouldn't matter as we use a king-size comforter on a queen-sized bed, so there should be plenty of the comforter for both of us to share.
