Do You....

Do you make your bed every day?

I normally do but have become very lazy recently.

We always pull the bed covers up, but don't make it properly each day. When I am more organised I generally do it properly.

However you just encouraged me to run down and do it right then. I will smile tonight and think of you when I go to bed. Thanks
Every day we write a memory on the heart of our family. What memories did you write today?

I do, it's a habit now, I just do it right after I get dressed in the morning.

I started making the bed everyday a few months ago. Last week with dh's surgery the bed didn't get made. It drove me crazy.

Yes always. I'm with Boggz can't stand getting into a messy bed at night, it also makes the room undtiy and to me feel unorganised.

I always make my bed every day. Most of the time I only pull up the covers and straighten it a bit. Even if I am not the last one to get up, I HAVE to make the bed before I use it again. I have been known to fix the bed and then climb in to go to sleep

I make the bed every day. I let it air out first with cover pulled off to the bottom with a good shake. Lets the mattress air too. Leave it for an hour or so.
I tie the ends of the quilt with a rubber band so it don't slide off. I use to put the bedspread on too but have stopped lately. DH sometimes likes to take an afternoon nap now that it is so hot.
