I’ve started to notice lately that I have no sense of time, not in an hourly, or daily or even monthly sense. I’m talking about annually. The other day a friend of mine and I were chatting on the phone and we were trying to think of the last time we saw each other in person. He said, “It was probably back in 2006″. I replied “That’s not so long “. “Dude, 2006 is seven years ago”. He was obviously right, but for some reason I can’t wrap my head around dates after the year 2000. I think it’s because when I was a kid everyone was so excited about the new millennium. We spent the whole back end of the 90’s amping ourselves up for 2000, now that it’s past I just can’t seem to let it go.
This year amnesia popped up most recently when I noticed that my comforter was falling apart. The stuffing was literally falling out of it. I showed “the bride” my face conveying my utter disbelief. “You bought that back in 2003, pretty soon after we met”, she reminded me. “Yeah so what was that like…. ten years ago.” Ten years? Really? I feels like four, five tops.
So after begrudgingly accepting that my bedding is not indestructible, I am on the hunt for a new comforter. I have looked around a bit and found one that caught my eye.
Made in Wisconsin, LaCrosse down comforters have a 250 thread count, a box construction to prevent the down from shifting, and are offered in a variety of colors. They meticulously clean their down to make sure it is hypoallergenic as well as dirt and dust free. On top of all of that, their comforters come with a lifetime guarantee.
A queen size comforter is currently on sale for $159. I am partial to the “deep blue” color, but I still have to run it by “the bride”. From my research, a quality American made comforter at this price is a very good deal. With the cold weather only a few short months I way, I would encourage you to check them out of you are looking to replace your current bedding. They are at the top of my list.
