Musings on a Thursday night…

I’ve had the same blanket on my bed since I was 7 or 8 years old.
I know this sounds crazy…how does this work?  I had a twin when I was a kid and I have a queen size bed now.  But it still fits…barel enough to cover just the top of the bed.  I use it as a cover over the sheet but below the duvet.

One may wonder why I still use the same blanket from childhood…it must be worn thin, right?  But somehow it’s the one blanket I always end up wrapped in and it keeps me warm.
Sadly, a few weeks ago I noticed that pieces are starting to rip off.  Almost like a thread in a sweater, it’s slowly pulling apart.  I’m not sure what I’ll do when it’s all gone.  Maybe if I ever have kids I’ll keep enough of it to use as a baby blanket.

It probably looked similar to this when I first had it...
