Tackle It Tuesday #8 - Duvet Cover 101

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

I received a beautiful duvet cover for Christmas . . . . Christmas of 2006. I wouldn't say I'm a procrastinator, more like an individual who has a decision-making disorder! Our bed has been over a year in the making (literally), and I'm just 3 pillows away from the finish line.

Today's tackle was not for the short of breath, sciatica-stricken, or uncoordinated. Basicall
y, a WAY pregnant woman should not have attempted to stuff a King-size duvet into its cover. But, when has anyone ever been able to reason with a woman who is nesting! (remember, I've had over a year to accomplish this task, but it had to be done TODAY!)

I did a quick little Google search for tips on inserting a duvet, and what'd ya know, I found this great little video showing step-by-step directions in a pretty humorous way! I declare, what can't you find on ye ole' net!

Needless to say, it wasn't pretty or graceful. I had to take a couple of breaks with a few glasses of water. But it's done. . . thank you very much!

Be sure to read my 100th post for a chance to win some of my favorite things!

LOL! Got to love the nesting instinct! I remember cleaning out the corners of the closets with popsicle sticks because "no baby of mine will have dirty closet floors"! Lol... little did I know that was the last time I'd SEE the floors of that closet...
Great job! Now go rest!

oh it's so hard to stuff a duvet...I quit using them because I'm so anal I would freak out of it were crooked.

It looks great! I totally remember the pregnant/nesting thing. You need immediate gratification.
