To make up for my lack of boggerness (I think we should add that to Wikipedia!) I have decided to show you some really nasty photos. Beware; these are not for the sensitive eye. With my iphone in hand I snapped a few shots of my house. I consider myself a thoroughly clean person, most of the time. However, his is not the case today, or this week for that matter. No, we have not recently had an earthquake of monstrous measures. And No, I have never even seen a tornado in my life. And No, I do not have 5 kids running around making disasters (or even one!).
So how has this happened you ask? Now you have found me speechless. I present to you.... the evidence.
A sewing/homework mecca, a calamity of coffee, chocolate and fabric.
As if there was not enough fabric mess on the table, I needed to strew it across my floor; then leave it for 24 hours... and counting.
You ain't seen nothin' yet! ;) Here is where it gets ugly.
Paint swatches that have been on the walls for about 6 months. At least I have decided NOT to use any of those colors. Blankets, clothes, shoes, and bags have no home here; the floor will do just fine it appears. And who needs to really make the bed...? It is just going to get slept in again.
I keep telling myself when we re-do this room with a big hotel-like all white bedding; I will want to actually start making the bed, just like this one...
There is just no reasoning with this one...
Now THIS is what is really driving me crazy! A messy kitchen, eww. That is one thing that really gets under my skin. Usually I can blame it on my husband, but not today. This one is alllll me. Latte mess, mail, sewing patterns (in the kitchen?), drug store bag hanging on the cabinet..? Why did I do that?
Changing this beautiful view is definitely on the priority list today.
Last but not least I present the breakfast nook/laundry room.
This is not a new development, it is one that I have been looking at for about a week now. For my birthday THREE weeks ago, I received an espresso maker from my parents; so why is the box still on the table? Must throw away! That green comforter.... well it doesn't fit in our washer so it has been on the floor for weeks. I'm dreading the laundry mat.
So there you have it. The hard, cold ugly truth; humans are messy, especially this one. And does Pottery Barn truly expect us to believe this is how someone's house always looks....
