Do you have teens? We have three in this house and I think I didn't get the "owner's manual," especially when it comes to keeping their rooms clean and orderly. One of the things you hear over and over when it comes to kids is to "choose your battles" and honestly, despite my personal tidy-organized genes, this is one I have had to let go of.
So today I am keeping it real people, welcome to my life....and my daughter's room....
Um, yes, I do believe those are dirty clothes. Wonder if she can find her books so that she can study for her finals.....? Oh happy day, I see one!
Wet towel in a heap, growing mildew, check.
Smelly socks and athletic gear, check. (Don't worry though, the potential smell is countered by those yummy lotions and potions from Bath & Body Works!)
Something living under the bed? Check....wonder what it could be? Animal? Mineral? Vegetable?
Bed not made, for months? Check.
But hey, I don't have to live in this room or get into that bed at night.....!
She thinks this is rather funny.....
Maybe once finals are over she can turn over a new leaf... or not.... Sigh....
Hard to believe, but, I have learned to live with this, that's what doors are for!
Have a great week-end. Our plans include tonight's 8th grade "graduation" for our youngest, a trip to Land o' Lakes, WI to pick up our oldest from his semester at Conserve, and I'd say some room cleaning, but Monday is the last day of school here, so the reality is that studying for finals trumps all!
Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design? If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Room Rx.
