It occured to me when my birthday passed and I didn’t get my annual phone call from an old friend that the reason was because she didn’t have my new telephone number! Well, duh! Last February we changed mobile phone carriers and got new numbers and I gave the new number to – no one! Well my husband has it, and the dentist and all medical contacts but – no one else. And then last May we got rid of our landline so…If, for some crazy reason someone wanted to phone me, they can’t. So if anyone out there needs my new phone number, let me know.
Anyone who has known me for any length of time knows that I have spent years (and oodles of money) trying to find sheets that fit my bed and don’t make me crazy in various other ways. Like the super expensive, deluxe, wonder of wonders sheets from Brooklinen – crap! and super expensive. And – crap! I threw those away and went back to using 500 thread count cotton percale sheets I had in the closet that pretty much feel like those weighted blankets must feel like. I hate them! They suffocate me. I need sheets that don’t feel like they are tring to murder me. (You can read about thread counts https://home.howstuffworks.com/home-decor/bedroom/thread-count.htm). I’ve spent hours searching and searching (again) for sheets and finally I just bit the bullet and bought these. Oho – they are just great. 300 thread count, so they just the right weight. They fit the bed perfectly (my mattress is only 13 inches high) and yes, they come out of the dryer wrinkled – they are 100% cotton percale – COTTON WRINKLES! I love all the reviews where people complain about cotton wrinkling, that’s what cotton does! Someone should introduce those folks to linen – it’d probably drive them out of their minds.
Today was also kind of a good day – Virginia did a nice job with the election, we got the state house back. Nationally – well, could have been better but we got the House of Representatives back, maybe in 2 years we can get the whole country back. And Texas? I have always had a soft soft in my heart for you but you are such a slow learner – it was close, y’all ALMOST did the right thing.
