"You get what you pay for." Yep, thought my new sheets wouldn't be the greatest and they didn't disappoint. If I really had a full sized full sized bed, I wouldn't have bought them. The *pocket* of the bottom sheet wouldn't fit a regular thickness mattress, let alone one that needed the *deep pockets*! So, anyway, the fabric is thin and questionable in cotton content and the finished sheets must have been measured before sewn ... Oh well, at least they are better than nothing.
 It's hard changing sheets with Jack being an immovable object.

 This little guy spent over an hour checking out the old fig for snacks. I noticed he made a few very tiny holes. No idea what he was finding. I saw a few swollen buds, maybe I will have some leaves first thing this spring. ???

Back at Amazon

I've been putting it off for much too long. I actually like online shopping - for the fun things, but, BUT, I hate shopping online or in a store for household items. I can't believe the prices, I feel like Rip Van Winkle. Today, I had to force myself to let my fingers do the shopping for some necessary sheets - I had put my foot through the bottom sheet.

Have any of you priced sheets lately? If not, hang onto something when you do. You know, it's only about a year ago when we bought my bed, I remember looking at sheets at the time and decided I would make do with what I had. How wrong can a person be? The prices are noticeably more now. (I'm understanding now, why DH bought skeleton sheets for his big bed)

I shopped until my back and delicate parts ached so bad, I ended up getting 2 cheap sets of questionable fiber content. At least my foot won't get hung up and I didn't have to pay $40 for clearance kiddie sheets. Sigh ... 

I will say one thing about shopping at Amazon - their gadget for narrowing down your preferences simply doesn't work for spit! I type in cotton full-sized sheet set and it shows up nearly any size or fiber content. It takes a long time to wade through all that stuff. 

I'm doing some better, I have no idea how long it takes these things to feel normal again. Have a good day, night, or whatever and  ... take care!

Living up to "Grace"

For a few years now I have been worried about falling. My balance isn't what you could call good. All this time though, of bouncing off the door trim/walls and catching myself, I hadn't fallen. Until the other night ...

Tacky wanted to be fed, and as usual, I filled her cup with cat food and made my way through the storm door, avoiding stepping on my o2 tube. I put the food in her dish, turned around and she was still loving on me. I opened the storm door, my tube got hung around the cat, and as I lifted my foot to go through the door - I didn't! I landed square on my dignity. 

At first all I felt was my throbbing finger, my foot, and my back. I had slammed into the storm door with my back, it felt as if someone slammed me with a 2x4. It hurt every time I breathed in. I figured if I went to the doctor, they would tape me - seeing that I can't stand a bra because of my breathing, I opted out of that idea. I called DH and he came home. I never would have made it up into my bed without him. 

In the morning, I found out that it was my coccyx I landed on and not just my dignity. Everything went into sympathy mode and I felt like I had whiplash. I felt like I had been in a bad wreck. 

It's getting better, thanks for the well wishes! I can sit now, but I wish I had one of those donuts. ;-) My foot and finger are fine. Been using Aspercream, which helps my back and other painful areas. I informed DH that he can feed the cat from now on.
