Bed Bugs??

Haha, I knew it! Take that Insect Lady!!

It’s finally official- making your bed first thing is BAD!!  I always told Mama that, but she wouldn’t believe it.  Now, it’s SCIENCE!!

Lisa From Retro Housewife tells us why.

“Something as simple as leaving a bed unmade during the day can remove moisture from the sheets and mattress so the mites will dehydrate and eventually die,” said Researcher Dr Stephen Pretlove

DUST MITES!!

Yucko!  {shudder}  Scary!!

“Dust mites are too small to be seen with the naked eye. They are arthropods like spiders. And they may be the cause of your allergy symptoms. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America says that about 20 million Americans have dust mite allergy.”

I do, I got tested.  (We know, Sheldon! We know!)  So wonder how much of those nightime sneezes, and congestions, are due to those nasty little bugs?

WAIT!! Did they say spiders???? No wonder I feel like things are crawling all over me all the time!  They are!!  I just can’t see them!  It’s not all in my head!  I’m NOT crazy!!  (Well, not for that reason anyway.)   😉   

EEWWWWW!!

Here’s what my bed looks like in the morning.

used tissues on bed

And yes, that’s toilet paper, not tissues.
Sorry, not sorry.

Welcome to my wonderful world of sneezing and sn_t.   I didn’t spell out the word, just in case Mama sees this.  She hates for me to be crass.

So, sweet dreams!  Don’t let the bed bugs bite!
