forgetting to measure...

it's dusty and fume-y around "a gathering place"-it says this on the window above our front door. i have turned into a youtubing-pinterester, tackling many DIY projects here at home.

and the guest bedroom is my latest canvas.  since #teamthomas is busy settling into their new nest, i have decided it's time to change amber's old part-time bedroom/guest room into a full-time guest room.  the pink shabby chic walls will be exchanged for buttery yellow ones. grey-white-yellow replacing all the rosy petite flowers.

kind of like going from this...


to this!
and part of this transformation was to purchase a new mattress set.  the current pillow-top is like sleeping on a soft cotton cloud, but in practicality, it's too tall.  and too tall means the comfort & flat sheets are not capable of stretching their arms around & between the box springs and mattress.  and that bugs me. it looks sloppy and i care about the way things look {and i also believe this is a positive trait even though someone recently told me otherwise-"humph" on her}.

so my sweet macy's delivery men arrived with the new box springs & mattress on saturday.  and the gentleman yelled to me as i was outside.  sorry lady, this mattress doesn't fit.  what?  really?  i ordered a full & my bed frame is a queen.  i never thought to measure the existing frame or mattress.  i was positive the bed was a full.  felt so foolish.  but the nice macy's men said no worries, took back the mattress and will bring me a queen tomorrow.  how sweet are all of those macy's folks?  pretty darn kind to a woman who forgot to measure.

and the moral of this story?

size does matter.  at least when it comes to mattresses.

  1. Forgot to measure!! Loved this descriptive story about change. I, too, care about how things look and we both know it's not just about "things"! Also, your beautiful marriage letter to Peter, what a testimony of love and how well you know him. Tears down my cheeks and so much love in my heart. Love you��
