Too true Tuesday . . .

The Accidental Mommy: Too True Tues

Okay, here's one where I admit I am poor and cheap.

This past weekend, I had to retire my comforter for our King Size bed. Seriously, do you know how much those cost?! Even the cheap ones are a fortune. I had been limping along on one I found at Kohl's on clearance a couple years back. But how long can one last when you have kids that pee YOUR bed and dogs that shed . . . you know . . . when you are a MOM? Anyway, our bedroom is not by any means decorated. It is a catch-all. A room full of mis-matched furniture that the kids have destroyed, but I can still limp along with. No one, I mean NO ONE, ever goes into our bedroom so who cares!? Obvisouly not me.

So I decided I was not going to buy a new comforter. The old one was beyond usable. All the stuffing had shifted in the last wash and it was lumpy mess. I knew I had two twin comforters in the attic from the kids. One that was purple and lavendar reversible, and one that was blue and turquoise reversible. I sewed them together and put them on my bed.

Really, I did.

And the best part is, two twin comforters are much wider than a king size one. Robert and I don't have to fight for the covers anymore!

But, boy is it ugly! Don't even think you are getting a picture.

Being poor sucks.

Of course I'd be tempted to ban the peeing kids and dogs from my bed and buy a nice comforter later.

As it is, we don't let our daughter spend any time in bed with us. It just doesn't seem appropriate, especially since we suspect she may have been sexually abused before we adopted her.

Well, here is what we do. We have TWO twin comforters on our bed, and I just overlap them in the middle. Makes washing them easy; and makes sleeping with them wonderful - no fighting at all...

I'm with Annie. My husband is hot and I am cold (in more ways than one, wicked cackled inserted here) so we each have our own blankets. Cheaper and easier. What raggedy comforters we do have, I "splurged" this year and bought IKEA covers for both of them since they had already been patched and restuffed so many times already.
