    Never! Well, I do on rare occasions if I feel like making my bed all nice and pretty.

    And then there's this:

    Untidy beds may keep us healthy

    Failing to make your bed in the morning may actually help keep you healthy, scientists believe.
    Research suggests that while an unmade bed may look scruffy it is also unappealing to house dust mites thought to cause asthma and other allergies.

    A Kingston University study discovered the bugs cannot survive in the warm, dry conditions found in an unmade bed.

    The average bed could be home to up to 1.5 million house dust mites.

    The bugs, which are less than a millimetre long, feed on scales of human skin and produce allergens which are easily inhaled during sleep.

    The warm, damp conditions created in an occupied bed are ideal for the creatures, but they are less likely to thrive when moisture is in shorter supply.

    /.../Researcher Dr Stephen Pretlove said: "We know that mites can only survive by taking in water from the atmosphere using small glands on the outside of their body.

    "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."

    Sounds good enough for me. Nah, mostly I'm just lazy and why would I bother with something so insignificant like making my bed? I love my bed...just the way it is.

    Okay, I voted "F#@K No," but then I realized I should have voted "mom." My husband makes the bed. I do occasionally, when I clean or if people are coming over, but normally? Nah.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I move the covers around so they are even and turned back - just so the three layers of sheets/blankets are not all tangled when I get back in.

    Actually making it? Ffffff-no.
