First day for flannel sheets


I get up every day and do the same old routine:
1. Get up and weigh. Whew hoo! Not bad, despite bloating from being a woman!
2. Shower and get dressed, including hair and face.
3. While you are in the bathroom Swish and Swipe.
4. Grab a load of laundry and start the washer.
5. Check your calendar for today's activities...not much, just make no-bake cookies for Will, and mail anniversary card to Husband.
6. Empty dishwasher to start your day.
7. Eat something good for you and take allergy medicine and vitamin.
8. Drink your water BEFORE coffee.
Yes, this is straight from Flylady. I don't do shoes in the house, she is all about wearing lace up shoes. But I don't need shoes to feel done if I am just veggin' at home.
So, my big thing for the day was #4....see my bed...see that tiny bit of cream sticking out from the back? I put flannel sheets on this morning! I love flannel sheets. We got these years ago from Mike's parents the first year we were in Alaska...(so that makes them almost 9 years old....and they are so soft!!!) I have a mattress pad with a brain (it has warmer coils near the feet, a few in the middle and just a little one near the chest area). I love to turn it on while I am brusing my teeth and washing my face. When I crawl in bed it will be all nice and toasty!! But I leave Mike's side turned off...so if I get too hot, I can scooch my toes to his side and cool down.
It is all a very exact science!!
I can't wait to go to bed tonight! Happy Saturday...

I love flannel, they are so cozy and snuggly. I want flannel sheet snd hubs wants reg. So, I cut 2 sets up the middle, and sewed them together. Now I have flannel and he has reg. Who hoo, we are both happy.
Have fun baking those cookies. How fun today to do that with the kids and you get to lick the bowl.
Enjoy the cool weather down south!

We got our first set of flannel sheets last winter .... so cozy! I guess it might be time to dig them out of the linen closet.

I only have two cotton sets, and two flannel sheets for each bed.

I'm all about the swish and swipe.
Keeping up with things is the only thing that keeps me sane! I love Fly Lady!

I don't know why, but I can't do flannel sheets. I hate to be cold but there's something about the feel of them...

you just reminded me to get mine out too--hubbby requested it awhile back but I guess he doesn't know how to change the bed . . .

Happy Anniversary, was it Saturday or were you sending the card in advance? Either way, happy anniversary wishes to you both. :)

Are you serious that you wash every day? Every day? Wow, I was twice a week. I'm such a slacker!

Cozy. I wish it would get cold enough here soon for flannel. Warmer coils for the feet is something I must look into.
