1. What do you consider a bad boy?

2. Do you change your bedding for the different seasons?

3. Do you/have you ever smoked cigarettes?

The downstairs in my house is just about two feet too wide for me to reach everything from one outlet.  It drives me nutty.

Whenever I "lock" myself in the bedroom, I am generally joined by at least one baby.  Sometimes several.  It's not all that isolating.

I'm a little jealous of this today after vacuuming the whole place, damp mopping the hardwood floors & steam mopping the ceramic tile...I can't tell you how many times I switched outlets. The steam mop in the basement is the worst...

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

Yes, it does.  I console myself on the clutter monitoring issue with the fact that I can plug in the vacuum into one central electrical outlet and vacuum the entire house from that outlet :)

GAB does that, too.  Maybe that's why he sleeps like Sheldon....to make it easier on himself.</p>

I do, too, actually, although I don't sleep like Sheldon :D  Mainly I do it so the cats don't immediately glom onto the warm spots on the mattress and then it can be HOURS before they're off the bed and I can make it.  So I pull up the sheets, blanket and comforter where i can, get out and finish the job.

For some reason my husband likes to read lying down.  So he usually goes to the bedroom to read.  He actually spends quite a bit of time in there just lounging around.  I think he does it for some peace and quiet.  He can kick all the animals and kids out and shut the door, which he really can't do in the den and lving room.</p>

ONce upon a time I loved to sit/lie on the bed to read.  When I began working night shift, I began a strict sleep schedule and also reserved the bed for sleep only.  Nowadays, when I even try to read in bed, I find myself falling asleep within a minute or two.

Unless I'm putting on shoes, I never sit on my bed.  But that isn't why I bought my comforter.  I bought it to keep me warm at night (well, okay when I sleep, not necessarily at night).  I have several sets of duvet covers with shams. The room is decorated, the bedding is coordinated and everybody is happy.  Also for those times when I don't use a comforter, it's not on the bed.  I have several blankets of different, but coordinated colors that I mix and match to create a summer bed that looks attractive.  In the winter, the light colored blankets end up under the light colored duvet set and the dark colors coordinate with the darker duvet sets.

Yes, it does.  I console myself on the clutter monitoring issue with the fact that I can plug in the vacuum into one central electrical outlet and vacuum the entire house from that outlet :)

We have three TV's.  One in the family room, one in the living room and one in the exercise room.

We do not take our computers into the bedroom but he takes his smart phone and I sometimes take my tablet.  He plays Angry Birds to wind down before going to sleep and I read.
