No Fun Long Weekend For My Kids....

When I was in high school I wrote a story about my messy room.. Declaring my room to be a scientific experiment - finding hidden Easter eggs - 3 years later and discovering why my room always smelled a little rotten.... placing a cauliflower floret on my dresser and discovering how quickly it can petrify.... the discovery of science was never ending in my bedroom in my teen years.. God bless my mother for not going insane.... or did she? My mother always said "I hope you have a child just like you"... well mom - I got two.. at least in the really messy bedroom stage..
When I picked up the kids from school and was taking them to their tennis lessons I told them that during this Memorial Day weekend - they are not allowed to watch TV, play with their game boys, swim, talk on the phone, have friends over, or anything else that may be fun until.....THEY CLEAN THEIR BEDROOMS AND THEIR BATHROOM... my dear mom may have been a saint for not throwing a hissy fit when my room was that bad.... but I am not a saint under any definition of the word... Their rooms are driving me INSANE......
So from looking at the pictures above... what do you thinking my kids are doing over the long holiday?....


  1. Looks like they got their work cut out for them! Hope you have a nice weekend!

  2. Wow. i feel so at home in your place!

    When I was young, my room was just as bad. I came back form school one day and mum had piled absolutely everything I owned onto the bed. I said nothing and she said nothing and I slogged away for hours to put it all away!
    I'd love to see the after photo's!

  3. LOLOLOL...thanks for posting these pictures. I don't feel so bad about my sons' disaster area now. They have to clean their room everyday before they go outside; it's the only way I know to keep it clean. It's ridiculous!

  4. LOL Now THAT takes guts! [bowing down to the Queen of Bravery] I have four boys, whose rooms (and bathroom) look just like that overnight.

    I make them clean it up, and then the very next day it looks like the beginning of an episode of 'Clean House' or one of those other television programs focused on intervention programs for packrats.

    Maybe that's what I should do . . . bare all their iniquities online. Maybe that would embarrass them enough to keep it clean. Yah right! lol They'd probably be proud of it all, and challenge each other to a "Who can be the Messiest" contest.

    Didn't mean to write a novel here.

    I'm following you here, now, too. ;o)


  5. Ha! Looks familiar and this is EXACTLY what is on MY kids' agendas today!!!
