Those wily fitted sheets

I came to a realization today.
It was the realization that I will never win the battle against the dreaded fitted sheet.

Generations of women in my family have successfully bested it.  
This is how they look during the process

See?  They don't even have to look at it.

And this is the end result in all its perfection

And this is me.
(All of those people shaped bumps are me at some point in the process.)

And this is the glorious end result.

So, in order to maintain some semblance of order in the linen closet, my new strategy is to straight up hide my folding deficiency.  

Step One:  Neatly fold the flat sheet.
Step Two: Wad up the fitted sheet as seen above.
Step Three:  Place the wadded up sheet in the center of the folded one and neatly fold in half.  
Step Four: Place on shelf and hope no one ever notices.  
In the event that someone does notice, strongly consider lying and say the kids were helping with the laundry.
