I read that once, don't ask me where but it sort of stuck. I suppose I have always made my bed out of compulsive neatness but never really thought about how it did actually make me feel. I like looking at a made bed and I really love getting into a made bed.
So every morning I make the bed and then it looks like this...
Because last night, my dear husband asked "Why are there so many pillows on the bed? All I do is this motion?" (And he motioned the taking pillow off bed and throwing it on floor thing, several times.)
And I answered, "Because it looks better and I like it."
"But it doesn't." he replied.
Now, usually when it comes to the topic of pillows and upholstery and stemware and table settings and floral arranging, I trust my instinct, not his. But for some reason, I woke up this morning and thought again about the pillows on the floor and figured I would just give his suggestion a try.
So then it looks like this...
No pillows on floor to fall over on the way to bathroom at 3am, yes.
Easier to make, yes.
Looks like a hotel room, yes.
Will try this out for a week or so, yes.
What you do you think?
