Chasing Contentment

Saturday, August 19

Mike just showed me this from the Tampa paper... it's a quote from Sharon MacDonnell of "The Christian Science Monitor."

"Researchers at Kingston University in England have found that a tightly made bed is a perfect breeding ground for dust mites that live in mattresses. Just sleeping on a mattress makes it humid, and that helps mites living there thrive. But it turns out that pulling those sheets and blankets tight around the mattress first thing in the morning holds in that humidity... and there goes the neighborhood. Aha! So isn't it time we all give up making beds?"
Being allergic to dust mites and not such a bed-maker, this is great news. I'm going to put the newspaper clipping on the fridge and call it vindication.

ummm..maybe I should hang that info on my fridge too...there are days that our bed DOES NOT get made (NO TIME), so then hubby comes home and makes it before we climb into
