Good News / Bad News

Good News- Hubby got a hospital bed to make life a little easier for him/ Bad news -We have progressed to needing a hospital bed.

The V.A. supplied the new bed AND a bed table / The bed requires special sized sheets

They make special sized sheets!! / They don't sell them at Wal Mart, bummer.

They sell special sized of sheets at Penneys!! / They only had girly style in stock for that size.

It's fun to see Hubby sleeping on what I consider teen girl sheets / Hubby doesn't have a "cute" blanket to match ;-)

I can order more solid color sheets that are more fitting for a 74 yr old man / They will be dull.

Finally rearranged the bedroom furnishing enough times to make room for everything and safely move around/ Rearranging threw Hubby into a state of serious confusion. : /

Told Hubby I would move back into the bedroom for sleeping. He was very pleased with that decision and said he was lonely sleeping in there. /   No bad news here. :)

  1. When my youngest son was small, the Dr. wanted us to put plaid sheets on his crib. I ended up sewing a set myself.

    I'm glad hubby misses you at night. {{HUGS}}

  2. Hi Linda :)

    Now I am very curious.
    Why did the DR want the baby to have plaid sheets?

    It sure did make me smile when Hubby told me he missed me :)

    Hope you are doing well. I think of you often especially during the Holidays.
    Remember you are being prayed for :)

    {{{hugs}}}}
