Egyptian Cotton

I move out of my mom’s house and into an apartment near my school on Friday.  This is not the first time.  In fact I have moved out and back into my mom’s house three times now.  However this time I have to move out for good.  My mom recently sold her house and plans to move in with her fiance.  This kind of hinders my moving plans.  I drive a Honda Accord.  I love it and it drives so nicely…but it’s tiny.  I have a tower of boxes in my bedroom that I look at every day and wonder how the hell I’m going to get them all into my car.  I think I’ll just leave them behind and “forget” to label them so that they will just get moved to my mom’s new house.

After weeks of packing I decided to treat myself to new bedding.  My little mermaid sheets just aren’t going to cut it anymore.  I learned this after getting hopelessly taunted by a previous boyfriend.  So today I went to Bed Bath and Beyond with my 20% off coupon in hand.  I found a pretty lime green and pink reversible quilt for $32.00.  Perfect!  Now I just needed sheets.  Well…do you have any idea how hard it is to match lime green and pink with sheets.  Not to mention I’m a little princess and I like my sheets soft and silky.  So I walk over to the sheets aisle.  Let’s be honest here…I haven’t bought myself new sheets since I was like 12 (thus the Ariel themed bedding I currently have).  Sheets are expensive.  I found a set of pink striped sheets for $30.00.  OK that’s a good price, but what’s the thread count?  250.  Well now that will never do.  I glanced over at the 600 thread count section, spotted a price tag reading $79.00, and sighed.  I’m a poor college student.  Perhaps I will have to learn to live without Egyptian Cotton.  (In all honesty I have never owned Egyptian Cotton sheets but I plan to sometime in my life just to see what all the hype is about).  So I bought my $30.00 250 thread count sheets.  They are now in the washing machine with a large amount of fabric softener.

I hope one day I’m rich.  One day I will have 1000 thread count Egyptian Cotton sheets.
