I READ it. I could have WRITTEN it! Our experiences of youth and struggles as adults (and mothers) seem identical - except I'm older now and it's just my husband and I - still dealing with our own "closet messiness".
I am glad you are writing. I think some of us are born organized and some of us aren't. Unfortunately, I fall somewhere in between. Solo, even after my kids are gone, they still come home and leave messes for Mom to straighten up. Five years of college stuff , is what I am dealing with now.Karen
I so enjoy your writing....it's a pleasure to read and thought provocating,in a good way.
Great piece! And I can attest that the methods of lax one day and strict another does not yield results. But I can also observe that the gene wins in the end....witness my son's apartment. Though he lives far off in Santa Fe, I would bet the house that the place is a MESS on any given day!
I love this post....brings so many of my personal "issues" to the forefront. I have one child who is a neat-nick; one child who married one; and one who, God only knows how, survives. As for me, I have decided that there must be some creative benefit to being messy, I hope.I love the S&L baskets, might just have to get a few.Thanks.Mary
Patricia, this is moi! However another artist friend is coming over to help me get organized before surgery. She is doing closets!! xoxoKarena2013 Artists Series
Great piece and whilst 4 out of 5 of us here are neat freaks there is one, and she knows who she is, with whom I despair. I LOVED your 'instiller of knowledge and neuroses' and 'parenting with a little resolve and a little hypocrisy'. Pure genius.
