Question of the day
(An aside first. I know these should not be questions of the day, because there is no rhyme or reason to when I write and ask them. Life has just gotten to busy for me to come up with one each day. It’s been a long while. This particular question is rather inane, but I’m just curious. Here’s the question.)
Are you a daily bed-maker?
I am. I could never leave the house without having made my bed. Meaning even if I got up late for work, I wasn’t leaving til I’d made my bed. I suppose that was training from my mother, who taught us to do that. Consequently, I cannot stand to get into a bed at night which has not been made. I have been known, when I was married, to make the bed which my ex always left unmade (of course, he always slept later than me) before I got into it at night. Now I am with a man, thank goodness, who considers and understands my dislike of unmade beds. He’s been known to make the bed, especially if I am doing something like cooking breakfast.
I have been asked why I make my bed. I have been asked what the point is of making a bed you are just going to mess up again. It’s kind of like doing the dishes at night. Someone once asked me what would happen if I didn’t clean up the kitchen after dinner, and left the dirty dishes til morning. I replied that I’d wake up totally pissed off, and I sure don’t want to start the day in an ill humor.
So tell me, are you a bed-maker? Let me in on your habits. Have some fun with it!
If you don’t make your bed who will?
Therein lies the problem! Although my significant other will, and dies quite often. 😊
Yes, ma’am! It’s the 2nd thing I do when I wake up in the morning. Lol.
Maybe its an Aries thing, lol!
Haha. Perhaps! Lol.
I always pull the blanket and top sheet up over the fitted sheet. It’s not always neat, but it reduces the risk that the dog will get on my sheet. I don’t mind if she gets on the blanket occasionally, but I like to keep it clean in between the sheets. That’s the main reason I make the bed. Plus, it looks better.
That’s as good a reason as any! My cat used to sleep on my bed, and I get the not wanting pet hair in the bed. Even though pet hair seemed to get everywhere anyway!
Pet hair is here, there and everywhere. 😉
Yup! But only because my cat shreds the pillows when she does it.
