Helping my sister pack:
“Have you started yet?” “Yeah I’m nearly done I think [points to mound of crumpled clothes on floor mixed in with dirty floordrobe garments]”
“Do you have tights?” “No”
“Do you have a bra?” “Well I’m wearing one now that I’ll also wear to go in, won’t that be enough?” “…”
“Do you have pants?” “…shit I didn’t think of that, where are you getting all these ideas from?”
This summer, housemates H and E moved out (H got married, and continues using her former part of the room for her wedding gifts). I had been using E’s erstwhile room to sort out all my papers and notes (getting rid of some 3 or 4 pounds of it), but then that room needed to be clear so L could move in yesternight.
The stacks of returned papers/binders mixed in with the mess of clothing and wedding gifts and Petoskey stone photography project I was working on until it got to be distressing. So last night I put in my headphones and worked at putting stuff away for 2 45s. The papers aren’t put away yet (I’m hoping to work on them tonight), but so many other things are now!
“My teenage daughter has a ‘floordrobe’ and refuses to tidy up her bedroom. I’ve tried everything I can think of to reason with her, but she won’t listen. How can I encourage her to use her wardrobe instead of the floor?” The simplest thing you can do is to try and figure out the thinking behind your teenager’s behaviour. Is this a rebellious phase? Is it sheer laziness? Is your daughter trying…
Now some of you may think that when you get a new bag, it simply means another place to horde stuff. Or another hanger is needed. Or another place in the floordrobe. However, when I got a new bag two weeks ago, it meant I had to go on a shopping spree to fill my new possession with amazing new things.
Here is my little beaut:
