Just Rambling...

I can sleep anywhere. It doesn't take a lot to make me comfortable. When I was a teenager and our youth group would drive all night to New Mexico for our Spring Break ski trips, I would sleep in the narrow passage on floor of the side aisle of the church van-- on top of the hump where the tire is. I can sleep on a love seat, in a school desk, or outside on the ground. It doesn't take a lot to make me comfortable.

And this will make many people squirm: I don't even have to have sheets on my bed. Nope, it's never been a big deal to me. A pillow is nice, but I can make do with a wadded up t-shirt.

I know, it's gross.

I've always wanted to be someone who has a made up bed with sheets and a comforter to comfort my sleepy body. Actually, I've never really cared. I just don't want you to think less of me. I guess you should say I've always wanted to WANT to be someone who has a made up bed with sheets and a comforter to comfort my sleepy body.

But times they are 'a changin. After eating lunch with my mom at the Jason's deli in Tyler a few weeks ago, she wanted to go shopping. Shopping period is living hell for me. Walking around a store with my mom is worst nightmare I can imagine. Seriously, who actually enjoys walking up and down the aisles of a store just looking at stuff you don't really need? I don't.

But something happened. We went into Linens and Things. In the aisle, on sale, a bed in a bag. Sheets, pillowcases, comforter. And they all matched. Mom told me she wanted to buy it for me and I did not complain.

The purpose of this post is to announce that I am surrounded by sheets and a comforter. Your life can now proceed to be better off for the knowing.

i am interested- did you care about the colr, style, etc of the "Bed in a Bag" ? i mean, did you rummage through the stacks to see which one was the"right fit"...or did you just pick one up and buy it? PLEASE answer this.

I didn't rummage. I think the display we got it from was only filled with one kind, blue sheets with navy/baby striped comforter. But honestly, I can't remember.
