MeMe Monday: Home

My favorite part of my home is my bed. I know that sounds strange, but I don't really like my house. Don't get me wrong, we built our house and I had to have this model in this neighborhood. But, that was before we had kids. It was before my kids destroyed the house and the furniture. At this point, we have lived in our house for nine years and it looks like we have lived here 20 years. It is quite sad actually. And the amount of stuff that we have accumulated is unbelievable. I have been going through the kids rooms recently, trying to organize things. I have thrown out more stuff than should even be in one home and I am only through two bedrooms. But, my bed is the one place in my house that is not a mess, it is comfortable and for the most part when I lay down in it I can truly relax. Last night was the exception because I had a sick preschooler lying next to me, all hot and sweaty! But, on most nights I can lay peacefully and comfortably in my glorious bed. It is so comfortable. Two years ago we purchased a new mattress. It was our anniversary and what better thing to do than go buy a mattress. We usually scrimp on things, trying to save money, but not this time. We got just what we wanted. Of course the mattress is super thick and so high the kids can barely climb into it, but maybe that is best. No slumber parties in there. It truly is the one place in my home that I love and if I ever find my dream house, I can take it with me!

Your bed is really high. but it looks like it is set up for a king and queen so it is a perfect retreat.
