You know what I miss?  Good quality sheets.  I hate my extra thick mattress that my sheets don't fit.  I hate how hard it is to pull the corner of the fitted sheet down over the last three corners.  I hate that the mattress is so thick and heavy I struggle to tuck the top sheet under the foot of the bed which has the additional offense of being too short.  You used to be able to get Cannon percale sheets 50% cotton and 50% polyester that we soft and crisp with NO IRONING needed.  I still have a couple of twin bed sheet that were my mother in laws.  They are over 20 years old and still in excellent shape.  The Cannon percale sheets that my husband brought into our marriage were ten years old when we got married and we used them every day for ten more years with weekly washings before they started to show definite were and tear.  I bought 100% Egyptian cotton sheets to replace them since that was all the rage and I couldn't find Cannon percale 50/50 anywhere.  The Egyptian sheets were a high thread count by a well know designer.  They showed more wear after the same normal use after two years!  They were expensive, too.  They wrinkled horribly and didn't feel as soft as the Cannon sheets.  I have tried three different sets of sheets since and have not been happy with any of them.
So, a nice rant after months of not posting and no pictures!
