do you make your bed?


I was just looking through an old photo album from 1999 and I found this picture. I took it the week I got my coverlet and shams for my bed.

I have yellow curtains that match the shams but I don't think I had gotten them yet in this pic 'cause the windows are bare.

So I was thinkin'....I think my bed has only been made about 10 times since then.

ha!

I just don't make my bed.

Currently, the shams are off to be washed, the dust ruffle is off and needs ironing and the rest of the room is a dusty mess. I'm going to work on the upstairs rooms this week - downstairs is all clean.

So do you make your bed? Did your Mother make you? Is it a habit you formed in your childhood?

My bed is made everyday!!!! My mother always made our beds when I was little, she couldn't stand it, LOL! My dh usually makes it before I get a chance (which is really nice!). He won't leave the house until the bed is made and all the dishes are washed, but I can't complain since he does all the dishes too, LOL!

A made bed sleeps so much better and it only takes a couple of minutes to make the bed. One of my top 10 favorite things is a freshly made bed with sheets that have just been washed. I ever win the lottery, I will have a maid to change my sheets everyday. tbcrops

I love to make my bed. It's like an instant room makeover. Seeing my bed made is a little happy to me every time I glance in there. It's such a small thing and yet makes the whole room brighter.

Hmmmm....I have to say yes and no. I love having my bed made...particularly with clean sheets...and the process of turning it down before I go wash my face and brush my teeth before bed.

However, if time doesn't allow -- it is the first thing to get dumped off the list...particularly if it means a few more minutes of sleep in the morning.

I clean my sink. the bed? Well. Hubby works nights, and so there's someone IN the bed when I get out. So no. Not so much the bed!
