1. What do you consider a bad boy?

2. Do you change your bedding for the different seasons?

3. Do you/have you ever smoked cigarettes?

Hmmm...good question.

My college-age son is not in a fraternity, but his bedroom is an utter disaster.  They keep the downstairs of the apartment pretty clean, but the few times I have been in his bedroom I was thinking I should have a haz-mat suit.  I've never seen his bathroom.  I don't want to.

Why is that funny?  I mean I can see why a small home is important to you, but why funny?

Well, Norman Rockwell is newer than the Renaissance.  I like that she called it "stuff" rather than "art."

Have you asked your cousin?

But isn't that an epic PITA? I have a chair in my room that I tend to use for reading and napping over the bed, but I just can't imagine being afraid to flop on my bed for fear of messing something up. Are your kids' beds the same way? 

Not really. Why would it be a PITA? We don't spend much time hanging out in the bedroom during the day. My dd's bedroom is a messy teenagers room. I do request she makes the bed and cleans up though if we are having people over. Sometimes she actually does it without being asked (gasping lol). My ds makes his bed everyday. He does use his comforter though but he does have 2 of them as he has a bunk bed so if one wears out, you can change to the other one. lol.

One of my favorite periods of art, the Renaissance period.

<<Everything is in its place, yes, when no one is home...bawahhhaa... but seriously, I have no need to sit on my bed during the day though and basically "everything in it's place" means that everything has a home so you don't have to try and figure out where something is all the time. I don't think there should be any reason for clutter. If it has a home, there will be no clutter and I purge, purge and throw away, throw away on a constant basis. >>

I never said anything about a need to sit on the bed during the day, I did say that I like to sit on the bed during the day (and read) which of course is really not the same thing.  Sometimes I even chat on the phone during the day and sit on the bed.  I know totally shocking that somone would "want" to sit on the bed during the day.  

And while everything may (or may not) have a home in my house, I really don't worry about it being there, so we have clutter sometimes.  shrug.  I don't really keep track of everyone's things and where they are.  I'm good with that.   You do things your way and I'll do them mine.  :)

Every bed in my house is made, every day. And I don't think anyone who has seen it would tell you that my house isn't put together. But I would hate for someone to feel like they couldn't relax here for fear of messing something up...

How much time do you spend in college kid's rooms on the regular?

On Wednesdays we wear pink.
