trying to get that danged fitted bottom sheet on the bed....
place one corner on the bed...go around to the other corner...pop off comes the first corner...back to the first corner...pop off comes the other corner...round and round she goes where I stop nobody knows....it was like a Keystone cops movie.....half hour later the fitted sheet is on the bed....and I hear a pop...off comes two corners...I give up...sheet won

Mattress thickness is a problem nowadays, I've discovered. You've got to get just the right size fitted corner. Lat time I bought some sheets I measured how thick the mattress was--felt like an idiot doing it, but it worked.

Do you have a pillow top mattress?
... if so, then you need pillow top sheets.

Any day in the life of us Senior Citizens is just one challenge after another. Are you still frustrated, or have you been able to enjoy the humor of it? smile

As you and I would say in "our" day: "I feel for ya, but I can't quite reach ya!" wink But, you handed me a laugh for the day.
