When you get up in the morning, Do you make it or leave it since you'll just get back in later?

Well, during the week I just kinda pull the covers up to straighten them. That way when we go to bed at night I actually have some covers on my side of the bed, lol. However, if it's cool out I fix them nice and snug cause otherwise the kitties crawl under the covers. I make the bed on the weekends in case we have company. Ya never know. Hugs

Lol. I had a white kitty named Zero, after the candy bar. He loved to crawl under the bottom edge of the covers and get my toes. I finally had to close the bedroom door to keep from being attacked. I was a bit nervous after waking to find a red wasp on my chest one day. I don't like suprise attacks whilst sleeping.

We don't make it, we put the spread in the middle and fold up the bed

Most of the time, I just leave it.. But on the other hand, my husband hates to see an unmade bed, so he makes it up each morning.. I don't see any reason to really make it up everyday, no one sees it and I can nap anytime that I want to and not feel as if I am making the bed a mess.. My mother made her bed faithfully everyday until she was about 89 1/2 yrs old and got too sick to make it.. Then we took over and made sure her bed was made everyday for the rest of her life.. I guess if no one sees it, then it is a personal preference.. I do change the linens on a regular basis and it gets made up really nice then..

That was very nice of you to make her bed even though she couldn"t and keep her happy..you have a nice Hubby who doesn't mind helping to make beds and clean linen is wonderful!

Most of the time I do make my bed right after I get off from bed. But when times that I'm just staying in my room, I mean no plans going out, I just leave what it's like right after I get off from it. Anyways I love being on my bed when I'm just in my place.

When i was young there was a song called "In MY Room" by the Beachboys..I loved that song cause it made me feel that there wasn't a care in the world as long as i was there.Your place is your bedroom..love that!

it depends what mood i'm in. I like to make it every morning because there's something depressing about walking into your bedroom with an unmade bed. It just looks messy. Also, my favourite part of the day is climbing into my freshly made bed at the end of the day!

i make mine and my daughters bed every morning. she is only two so she can't do it yet, but i don't make my boys beds. they are 9 and 8 and can make them themselves. i believe it's important to do these things in the morning because you never know when family or friends might just pop in to say hi. we have a small home, but i value what we have and don't want people to look down on me just because it's not always clean, so i do my best to make sure that it's clean all day long. God bless

Yes I have to make my bed before leaving for work everyday something my mom taught me I guess it just stuck and a made up bed is not for sitting on, that was something else dear ole mom instilled in me. Have a great night.

I never make the bed. Sometimes I make it if I want things to look nice and to give people a good impression, but my theory is, I'm just going to be back in bed later, so why would I want to make it? Just a hassle in my opinion.

it is rare that i make up my bed. almost every day my son goes and takes a nap in my bed and plus after we take his brother to school we crawl back into my bed and watch cartoons for a little while.

i usually leave it since i'm too lazy to make bed after i've waken up

I just leave it. I don't see the point in making it, since I will be getting back in it some point during the day and definetly that night. I make it look presentable if people are coming in my room though.

When I get up quite early, i do it but whenever i wake up late, i wont get time to do it immdtly, so i just do it after sometime or if i had to rush somwhere out, then do it only before going to bed again that night (though that does not happen much of the time)
