During the winter, my feet are almost always cold. It drives me crazy. I can wear two pairs of fuzzy socks and sit five feet from my fireplace, and my toes still feel like icicles. Can any of you relate?
Even on the rare occasions when my feet feel relatively warm, as soon as I get into bed, my foot temperature drops 30 degrees. I am not even kidding. Well, that might be an exaggeration. I’ve never been good with body temperature. But the fact remains that getting into bed = cold feet for Dana.
I’ve tried all kinds of things to combat this problem. Use a hair dryer to warm my tootsies up? Done it. Hold a space heater up to blow directly onto the sheets? Check. (I know that’s not safe. Don’t send me emails. And do not try that at home.) Take a shower right before bed? Tried it. None of it keeps my feet warm for more than a couple minutes.
A few years ago I guess my parents got tired of hearing me complain about my cold feet, because they bought me a bed warmer. If you’re not familiar with this little piece of technology, it’s basically a mattress cover that has wires running back and forth down the length of it that get hot when you plug it in.
