Fun Monday - What a Mess!
Gattina is our host this week and she made it simple:
I just want to know what you call a messy place and put a picture of it in your post. It's just to compare, if I am messy ...
I'm a pretty neat person. But I do live with two very messy people. My son is mess-maker number one. He strews things and clothes behind him the way PigPen leaves a trail of dust. I'm trying to break him of that habit, but I can tell I'm in for the long haul.
The other mess-maker is my husband. Now, on the surface, he seems like a neat kind of guy. He goes into work early every now and then to dust and clean the floors (even though that is NOT his job). He washes dishes and mops the floors and likes things neat.
The computer room is prone to dust and tumbleweeds of cat hair. And since everyone uses that room, it's a receptacle for dishes, clothes, toys, bits of electronic equipment, books, and pieces of whatever projects are underway or about to be. I try to keep it pretty neat, but last week, Darling Man decided he needed to lend a hand. I walked in and realized that the room was neat, the fur was missing and... so was a lot of other stuff. Huh. I looked around (and under the bed) before finding the missing stuff.
Another area Darling Man helps out in is laundry. For some reason, we have mountains of the stuff. One of my summer projects is to get rid of as much surplus clothing as possible. In the meantime, it's hard to find a place to put it all. Which is probably why my garage looks like this:
There is literally folded or hanging laundry on almost every surface in the garage. Not such a great idea, actually, since there's lots of dust, dog hair, and spiders out there. But right now? It'll have to do.
I guess I know what I'm going to be doing when I get back!
