Short sheeting the bed

Nope, this is not a prank I've pulled on least not recently.  This is something I did to myself...let me explain.

Left Brain and I were wandering the aisles of Camping World the other day since we had a coupon for $10 to use up.  Going into Camping World for an RV'er is like a crack addict meeting their seller in a back alley, except we might actually spend more cash than they do.

I found a couple of small items to use up the coupon and then noticed something in the bedding aisle that really got my mind spinning.  Short Queen sheets sets.  Say that five times real fast!

I'm the Queen and I'm short...this would be perfect!  We don't really need any more sheets to store, but it did get me thinking of how Left Brain always pulls the corners of the sheets off his side of the bed. 

Sheets today are made for these hugely thick mattresses that are so popular today and we have a normal thin mattress that is undersized to fit into an RV.  Nothing in an RV is standard sized...that's how they make their money selling oddball things to us.

Then the lightbulb over my head went on and I realized I could stitch up the corners of my existing sheets and make them tighter.  Ta Da!

So, using the money I saved on this little venture I indulged in the hot pink "Queen of the RV" shirt.  I don't normally wear's just too girly for an old tomboy like myself.  But if those big tough looking football players can wear pink things for the month of October, I guess I can also. 

Long Live the Queen of Clever RV Fixes
