What on Earth am I Doing? - Follow Up (Finally, I know)

Hello Everyone!!! Sorry I haven't had a post in a while, we have had visitors staying with us for just about 2 weeks straight (my parents for 10 days and my sister-in-law, her husband, and our niece for 3 days).

I would have posted in between the visits, but I had to clean in preparation for the next set of visitors to arrive. Needless to say, I'm a bit tired, but - I'M BACK!! (picture me doing the cabbage patch right about here, except in slow mo - since I'm so tired)

Any who, I thought a follow up to my "What on Earth am I Doing?" post was necessary, so here I go:

Prior to my parents arriving Binderclips took a picture of me doing the above (again, yes, I am inside of the mattress cover). I asked you all what you thought I was doing and got a range of responses starting with "testing the comfort of the bed", to me needing "me time" away from the dogs and finding it there, to stuffing the mattress into the cover (a response which mentioned bidet covers - Vishal, I am soo using that word instead of duvet from now on, btw), to hiding from work, to having an Alice in Wonderland moment (which, I would NOT put past me) - all of which, are great guesses. Thanks everyone for your responses!

Before I tell you, I feel like I should mention that Binderclips INSISTED that we needed a new mattress cover prior to our guests arriving. However, when I unzipped the mattress cover I am in above I noticed something....there was another mattress cover underneath it!!! So, counting the new one and the ones on the bed - we had 3, yes, count them, 1, 2, 3 mattress covers (for our guest bed)!!! It was at this point that I came to the realization that Binderclips has (brace yourselves folks), well, a mattress cover issue. Immediately I ran into our room exclaiming to Binderclips "tell me, when I unzip our mattress cover how many covers are going to be beneath it?!" and "how long has this been going on?" I was shocked I hadn't noticed it earlier, to be honest.

To my surprise this issue is only specific to our guest bed for some reason. I guess one thing's for sure, if you come to visit us, you do not have to worry about the mattress being dirty or having bed bugs. YAY for clean mattresses! BOOO to hubby mattress cover weirdness!! ;)

Ok, ok, so I guess I should tell you why I was inside the mattress cover now. Well, initially the mattress pad (which I'm laying on inside of the mattress cover) was on top of both of the mattress covers. I decided it would be a good idea to put the mattress pad inside of the outer mattress cover so that it wouldn't be so shifty for visitors. However, this required me to climb inside of it as I positioned the shifty mattress pad inside. As I was doing this I was asking Binderclips for his assistance to which I heard the camera shutter sound. Thanks again Binderclips for helping!! I did eventually get the mattress pad in position but right at that moment the dogs jumped on top of it to which I exclaimed "GET THEM OFF NOW, I FEEL LIKE I MIGHT DIE!!"....it was a bit overdramatic, but I really felt that way at the time.

I hope everyone had a nice relaxing Memorial Day weekend! I plan to get back to my usual post a day or every other day schedule, so look for more posts coming soon!


  1. I would like to mention that I had a great time with our visitors, I seemed to leave that part out above. :)

  2. The thought of being stuck between the mattress and the cover is scary enough for me--let alone being stuck with dogs crawling all over my back. I probably would have had a coronary. Claustrophobia is REAL, people! :(

    On a lighter note, I'm glad you had a good time, and welcome back!
