Remember when Rita took it upon herself to customize her own bedding? (In a nutshell, she purloined a no-longer-needed twin mattress topper that I didn't know where to store and "customized" it to fit her fuzzy little form.)
Well, it was an eyesore, but she loved it so much I didn't have the heart to throw it away. Even though she continued to customize it more and more every night.
And even though I was constantly gathering up mitt-fulls of bits to throw away, I still didn't have the heart to get rid of it.
But... I did swear I'd get rid of it once she went through both layers and hit hardwood... which happened recently.
I was going to chuck it, but she still loved the darn bed so much I just couldn't do it.
So I bought a twin-size duvet cover and stuffed what was left of it inside, and then bought a matching blankie to go on top.
She seems to like it. And it's much less of an eyesore now.
To be totally honest, I don't think she likes the new arrangement as much as the old, but there was going to be nothing left if I didn't put what was left of that "bed" in a bag!
In Other News...
I've received copies of the audio version of RESCUE ME, MAYBE from my publisher. They sent both regular CDs and MP-3 CDs, which you can load onto iTunes and then listen to via your device of choice. (The hubs and I load books onto my iPad and then listen via Bluetooth in the car on road trips.)
