Renaissance Man...The Bed Maker

Renaissance Man and I went to bed after 10pm on Friday night, very tired. We had one of those days where everything went wrong. He had a long day at work and I was dealing with car issues and driving Moe to his various activities. So, we were both looking forward to getting some rest, until Renaissance man saw our bed...

RM: "Where's the bed sheets?" (He has this bewildered look on his face, wish I had a camera!)

Me: "Oops, forgot to put it on!"

RM: "You had ALL DAY to put it on."

Me: "I forgot."

RM: "You always forget." "For as long as I have been married to you, you always wait to the very last minute." We always end up making the bed just when we're getting ready to get to bed!" (He looks really irritated at this point.)

Me: "Oh my gosh, you're right!" (I'm laughing really hard by this point, I find everything funny when I'm tired and because we are ALWAYS making the bed right before we sleep)

RM: "It's not funny, and by the way... you're fired."

Yippee!! I can cross off making beds from off my list...now all I have to do is remind him to do it!



















(This is how our bed looked like after we made it.... I wish!)

LOL...that is ME in a nutshell!!! I always leave things to last minute, but most especially if it's a chore! lol! :)

We both slept on the couch and lovesac the other day because I hadn't cleaned the laundry off the bed! :)

Ahhh.....you planned that didn't you? How long did you have to "forget" to put the sheets on the bed before you finally got fired? I wonder if there are other "chores" you could forget and get fired from as well. I'm thinking about trying it here.

That has happened in my house many times too! Sometimes when I'm washing the sheets, I leave the mattress exposed all day. To be honest, I'm so tired I could probably plop right down on it to go to sleep. My husband looks at me funny when he doesn't see the sheets:)

Shelle- RM has slept on the couch, when the bed has no sheets. I'm not picky, I just get my sleeping bag!

Crazy Cox- Being "forgetful" is very helpful, but I think RM is catching on!

Septmom- So, when do you think you'll get "fired" from making beds?

eternal worrier - I love that bed too...I wish it was mine!

Spasm- I shall divulge more secrets in later posts!

Oh my God! I do the same thing! Matter of fact, tonight the hubby didn't want to help me put the sheets on because he was too tired. So, guess what? We are sleeping in the guest room tonight instead.

I forget to put the sheets on the bed all the time. We sleep in the guest room as much as we do in our bedroom because we are just too tired to put the sheets on! I haven't been fired just yet though...still waiting!

I am doomed when I get married. I forget all sorts of things. I have the best of intentions but then things just fall apart.

What???? are you supposed to make the bed? HUH?

Jan @ Struck by Serendipity said...

That's hilarous. Sometimes by the time I remember the sheets, I'm too tired to put them on so I go sleep in the guest bedroom.

Mother Goose said...

HAHAHA, I think they cloned Mr. Incredible and I with the two of you! or maybe visa versa!

When I do change our bedding I always forget too! and we end up putting our sheets on til the end. Mr. Incredible ends up doing it, if I am downstairs doing more important things like blogging. OOPS!

Sassy said...

Thankfully they were DRY! So your bed could get made...in our home I probably WASHED them and FORGOT all about them until bed....ooops! And soggy sheets are no fun to sleep in...so it puts bedtime off by a little...LOL


It's so much easier to make the bed though with two people...it goes so much faster...I think there is a method to your madness.
