We are still unpacking boxes, and this weekend I discovered three more sets of king sheets. I had thought some were missing, but my linen closet was already pretty full so I didn’t think too much about it. So I counted my sets, and I have a total of nine—seven summer (cotton-type) sets and two winter (fleece) sets. Actually, 11 sets if you count the two crappy sets that we used for camping and are now pretty ratty and are used mainly for covering furniture when we go away. That’s too many for one bed. Maybe if we didn’t wash them right away and had a set as backup, but even then we’d need three MAYBE four.
Ironically, we still haven’t found the Queen size summer sheets [that were on the bed in the last house]—we found everything else that was ON the bed, but not the sheets. What the hell did they do with the sheets? I do know I only had two sets for that bed—one summer and one winter—so the winter sheets are on, just because I wanted to get the bed made. And I really don’t want to get started on the slippery slope of buying “just one more set” for that bed, because you see what happened with sheets for our bed.
And then there’s Owen’s bed, the Full. Originally we had green and pink sheets (before it was his bed). I have no idea where the green sheets are, and I didn’t want him to have the pink (though we did use them at first), so I bought him boy-themed sheets. Then I figured we needed a backup pair, so I just bought some brown sheets. And then I found a pair of ivory sheets that I thought were the missing Queen sheets, but were Full. So now Owen’s bed technically has four sets. Five if the missing green ones show up.
Help me. I’m addicted.
