Pile Be Gone

I have to mention this before I forget, and because I may never get a chance again.
Beth cleaned her room yesterday!
Without being told - well, at least that day. She's been told plenty of other times that she needed to get things straightened up in there, but she just kept putting it off. How that girl ever finds anything to wear is beyond me. As far as I could see, all her clothes were piled in a huge pile on the floor.

Anyway, yesterday she got busy and organized her clothes, put them away, straightened up the closet, and even vacuumed the floor (remind me to check the vacuum cleaner before I use it because I know there will be a ton of hair wrapped around the beater).

The first question that comes to mind is - What got into her? I think it's because Jeffrey and I brought home a 'new' dresser on Wednesday. Someone was throwing it out so we grabbed it. It's a tall one with just one row of drawers - 8 of them, made of real wood. Jeffrey just had to tack the back a little because it was coming loose in some spots, but other than that, it's in great shape. Beth decided it would work for her room - she got rid of her big dresser a while back because it 'took up too much room' in her room, and we got her some tubs to go in the closet. She didn't do a very good job of using the tubs, and went for the piled-on-the-floor look. Now she's got things in both the dresser and the tubs. Dare I hope she'll keep it that way?

(Why was Zemanta suggesting album covers for this post?)

  1. Wow, that's good.. It has happened here in the distant past but so long ago I don't really remember.

    Both my girls seem to like the clothes heaped on the floor look, it must be a universal thing!

  2. Great to hear about your girl cleaning her room.

    I just wanted to quickly comment on cover album art by Zemanta. It's a glitch in our system that we fixed in our latest version, that we're going to deploy in two weeks. Thanks for mentioning it :-)

  3. oh If I took a picture of Fawns room you would be shocked at what I let it look like... but I figure that one day she will move out and I just might find a bunch of good stuff she leaves behind,,,,,


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
