Because today is National Make Your Bed Day, our Sunday Scribblings prompt for this week is Bed. If you decide to write a post based on this week’s prompt, be sure to go back here and share your link so everyone can see how you interpreted things! Here’s what I did with it…
I know I don’t have the most comfortable bed in the world. But there are so many mornings when all I want to do is stay wrapped up in the comforter and lie there all day. I chalk that up to the depression that seems to never go away.
Even now, on a Sunday morning, as I type out these words for this blog post and think about the very few responsibilities that lay before me, I’m mostly thinking about how certain I am that I’ll wind up taking a nap at some point today. Maybe even a couple of times.
I rarely, if ever, make my bed. I know… they say that’s one small thing you should do so that you can start the day feeling like you’ve accomplished something. But… to me, I just think… What’s the point?
I live alone. No one ever visits me. That means I’m the only person that sees the mess that is my bedroom. Sure, I could make the bed in the morning so that it looks nice. But I’m just going to be sleeping in it again at the end of the day.
If I reach a point where my entire apartment is presentable again, sure… maybe I’ll start making my bed on a regular basis again. But I really don’t think I’ve done that since I was a kid.
