Good morning Crowders! I don't know what this has to do with anything but I do really think it's a waste of time and energy to fold a fitted sheet. Doesn't stop me from trying to do it the "right" way every couple of years though.

My mother could do that - she taught me (but I'm not very good at it). You couldn't tell the difference between her sheets and those still new and in the package (mine are lumpy-bumpy :wink:

Yea that's the one! I'm pretty sure it will be open for a while. The test is savage and wanted to know if anyone has solved this. Cannot quote you as I'm new still.

Even though for myself I don't care about it I find it totally admirable and kind of awe inspiring when someone else can do it.
And I'm like why am I lacking in this area?! What's wrong with me?! LOL!

My mother just folded it up and let the lumps fall where they may. Actually her best solution was pull the sheets off the bed. Wash them and put the same sheets back on the bed...I could fold it, though. And she would look at me as though I was going to be picked up by the mother ship at any time. It's impossible to explain. Don't even go there. You learn it by doing...or not..mostly not.
edit: Best hint. It's all in the hands. Like making patterns with a looped string.

That's one life skill my mom didn't teach me. It makes sense to learn to fold one because I assume you are going to keep one in the towels/linens closet for when you soil your current one on the bed and want a clean one quickly or have used it often enough that it's getting holes in it and needs to be changed with the one you are storing in the towels/linen closet.

I fold mine like a blanket because of not learning whatever method of folding is taught for a fitted sheet.

Based on the early HIT exports, looks like it might be another one of those mornings where 95% of the surveys will be 50 cents or less. ;(

I must be mentally messed up because I was thinking about turk while taking my early morning hours nap. I was thinking of turk and baby monitors - cheaper than a laptop newer than my XP-vintage one that I would never put on the internet anymore and would get the job done of being able to monitor my desktop for Hit Catcher audible notifications. I figure I could set up the transmitter next to the speaker of my PC and take the receiver to the kitchen, outside, etc. and break the tether to having to be in the vicinity of the computer room. The monitor wouldn't need to be a fancy one as I need audio relay (video relay won't work for the purpose) and even if the audio was distorted that you couldn't understand it, you know that Hit Catcher made a sound notification when it caught a hit or when turk got logged out.

Am I crazy with this idea? Any recommendations for an continuous audio-relaying baby monitor that costs under $40?

Or you could just turn up the sound on your computer.

Think of it this way. You want to end up with all four corners nestled around one hand. Then you simply straighten the edges and fold....I believe I did say it was hard to explain, didn't I? You might call this slight-of-hand.
