I am the same, I cannot leave the house without the bed being made and never can I get into an unmade bed, the sheets have to be straightened. My family thinks I am sick lol.
The problem is making the bed is a task, it is one of the most difficult chores I do (not really) my husband is a tosser and turner so everyday is like making the bed from scratch. I have found that if I sing and make up crazy songs....like why oh why am I so anal that I can't leave the house without the bed made, I'm a sick sick person etc etc. lol its all a joke but I do manage to get it made and laugh at my craziness.
I have tried giving in and leaving the bed unmade and the few times I have done it....I would have flashes of the unmade bed (just kidding) but before I got in at night the bed was made ready. I think its because when I was a kid it was the one chore that had to be done before we went to school....so I am going to blame it on genetics!
Hi. I have fibromyalgia and I thought I was the only one finding making the bed hard work. I feel everyone thinks I am crazy when I have to take breaks when I am changing sheets and duvet covers. I have to pace myself and "I hate Pacing" but thats what I have to do.

Frances you are so right! Yes you nailed it. Thats what the post was about saying goodbye to a task you take for granted. I'm just having an issue with letting it go. I love the feel of getting into a crisp bed at night with my hubby. He would make it for me but I usually get into bed before him so I would have to wait to climb in.
I have let go of alot of my cooking which was like having a funeral. My family has been raised on homemade meals. So my husband jumped up to the plate WILLINGLY to learn to cook and seems to enjoy it. I have given up doing the laundry and my daughter keeps up on that for me.
Making the bed seems to be such a little thing until now. So thank you frances for seeing through what I was saying..
Chutz you are so funny those kittys of yours have to be a blast!!!!!
