Now let me tell you the tale of new sheets... I decided when I was home at Thanksgiving that I missed my Ralph Lauren Sateen sheets. Last week, I was in Homegoods and saw a set of RL Sateen sheets for $39.99. I bought a chocolate brown set and thought I had really scored.
Two nights ago, I got ready to wash them and put them on my bed only to discover that the set that has "Queen" stickers all over it was actually King. So yesterday, I called Mom who decided that she'd take the King set, and then I headed out to Homegoods again to buy an actual Queen set. I ended up in a checkout line that snaked and snaked around, but I convinced myself that sleeping in those great sheets would be worth it.
Once I finally got home, I washed the sheets and put them on my bed. When putting them on, I noticed that they weren't really as soft as the sateen sheets I've had in the past, and that the deep pocket fitted sheet would barely go over my pillowtop mattress. This morning, after a night's sleep on them, I decided that they totally sucked, so I returned them. Yes I did! I returned sheets that I had washed and slept in. I also returned Mom's set too.
So now, I am having to put another set of sheets on my bed. It is really irritating because that is one of my least favorite chores, and now I'm having to do it twice in two days! However, I've put it on hold for a bit because of this...
