Mom, OK if you were still here this would be one of the moments that I call you and ask how did you do it? How did you manage to fold sheets? And have the top sheet and bottom sheet be the same size? And all the sheets the same size? How did you fold the bottom fitted sheet at all?
When you folded sheets, they looked amazing, almost like a work of art – and I am convinced the fitted bottom sheets you folded actually were. Your sheets could be in a commercial they looked so pretty.
In addition to not being able to find what you used to make the laundry smell so wonderful, I cannot for the life of me figure out how you managed to fold the sheets and make them look so nice, and neat, and uniform and wonderful. I have folded what seems like every sheet in the house and none of them are the same. The tops and the bottoms are not the same at all. Mine are wrinkled, ill sized, and look messy.
I have tried everything and every which way to get them to look like how they did when you folded them. I have done over and under, long ways and short ways. I have laid them put of the floor and tried to fold with creases. I have fought with them like Snoopy and the lawn chair…and the sheets won. And still, they look awful, like a four year old tried to fold them. Kind of like when Dad tried to make the bed for the first tie…except I have been folding sheets for years.
I have said it before and will say it again. You were magic. Your sheet folding ability is just one example. Love and miss you always.
