I finally took the plunge yesterday and bought an electric blanket. I’ve been putting off this purchase for months, even though my parents insisted that I’d need one, and I had my reasons. I’m sure I did have a few reasons ... although the only one I can recall now, is that I’ve never used an electric blanket before so do I really need one? But then I’ve never lived in this cold little town, in such a miserable winter, in a little wooden house with no insulation before either. And no matter how warm I was when I went to bed, I kept waking up cold, and that’s not a pleasant way to start the day.
So I took my $47 to Target and came home with an electric blanket. I was so excited that I re-made my bed to include my new purchase the minute I got it home. At first I was unimpressed with its temperature, but of course the real test was going to be the Overnight Challenge. And let me tell you, that thing is amazing! It’s like my entire bed is the warm spot!
I can’t believe I didn’t get one weeks ago.
