i think my ocd is showing

i can't stand it when the "header" end of my sheets is wrinkled.  
see that big wrinkle.  it's tragic.

so every week when i wash my sheets i end up ironing the header.
but i do it when it's on my bed.
makes me feel less neurotic.
you know as opposed to putting up the ironing board.

my panties are all bunched up

there is much in today's world i don't understand.  some of it i'm just fine with.  but some of these modern day behaviors have me either chuckling to myself or shaking my head.  sometimes i even seeth.
for instance.
lol (always thought it was lots of love), omg (what's wrong with 'heck'?) bff (cute if you're 12), lmao (if it were only that easy to get rid of my 'a').
these are the chuckling, head shaking ones.
but then there are the 'other' ones.
wtf (really...) and fml (a sign that therapy is needed).
please america.  if you are under 20 go ahead.  initialize.
if you are anywhere in the adult world, articulate.
with decorum and respect please.
maybe then our rising generation will have something to rise to.

finishing touch

i finished the burlap pillows.
i'm liking the texture. 
and the best part of these little pillows...i didn't have to buy a thing.  i had looked for a pillow insert that was the size i wanted, about 8" X 16".  couldn't find that size anywhere. but all i needed to do was check my pillow stash.
there it was.  the average pillow.  16" X 16".  so i cut it in half.
oh how i love upcycling.

p.s.  no bathroom jokes allowed.
