If I had to make a list of things that I wouldn't want to live without, nice sheets would be right up near the top.
Bad sheets are something that I cannot abide.
For the past couple of months I've been thinking that I needed to get some new sheets because mine are getting dingy. They are great sheets and they are so soft and wonderful that I cannot bear the thought of getting rid of them. But I decided I'd to shop for a sale on some new ones.
Now, good sheets are not necessarily inexpensive and while I don't expect to buy them without a certain amount of pain, it has also been my experience that you can get really good ones at Macy's if you shop the sales. And so I did this weekend, and bought two new sets of snowy white sheets. I ran them through two cycles of the washer but they're still not broken in enough. They'll get there, though. What they lack in buttery softness, they make up for with what I would classify as "crispness." In any event, I am quite enjoying them.
The old ones are washed and in the linen closet. And if anybody knows how to get the dingy out of them, please let me know.
