Tootsie, this is for you! The Real Dawnie!

Okkk here is Baldymans's side of the bedroom, now mind you this is the side you see when you walk into our room so of course I will be a good homemaker and make sure this is very neat and tidy. DO NOT notice that i have not changed the little linen on baldymans nightstand--yes its still from Christmas. I'm tellin ya, I'm bad! But do note that I have my Valentines Day Lion on the bed and he purrs when you touch his hand! I vacumn daily...but I rarely dust. I'm one of those cleaners that only cleans what you see...and here is the proof!
Yep, this is my side of our room!!! This is how it is every single day...I'm not lying! Sometimes I will pick up the magazines and neatly stack them so i can vacumn around the bed because I'm sure there are popcorn kernels there or m'ms or genies hair and god only knows what else! Also, note my nightstand--is that NOT a pig???? I thought I would be embarassed but I'm not...I should be though huh? Just looking at this is making me quite ill....it really is bad. So there ya go ladies...my dirty side of the room! I should have taken a picture of our shower that we never use. When I opened the curtain I nearly barfed. I was like--why didnt someone tell me it was this dirty! Baldy and I never use that shower so I had no idea cooties took over. BUT...I did clean that and I'm checking it now. Problem is, I have alot of company and I forget to check that bathroom!

Ok ladies, I cant be the only closet pig! I dare you to show me the dirty side of your room!

22 Thanks for your comments!:

LOL Dawnie, thts what I like about you, your honesty. Well its not that bad. You just need to push it under the bed out of the way!! The bed is made though that counts! I hate dusting too and yes I have loads of books in my bedroom too. Magazines I dont bother with. OK I think we should all post pictures hey?

Oh Dawnie - that is so cute. I'm a neat nick but a relaxed one after living with two guys who make fun of my wanting to keep things neat. My main problem is that we live in a very tiny, but cozy home. After 25 years, I've run out of storage space and I have too much furniture for my home.

It made me smile when you said you move your piles to vacuum and that you keep the side by the door neat. Love it and it's a great way to start Monday.

Dawnie, Thanks so much for my daily dose of laughter. I know I can always count on your for it!
As for your bedroom at least it has that lived in look to it... Which I salute you for it. To me a home should be lived in, not a showcase for showing off. LOL
Now as to posting pics of mine----well the hubby just got thru going through some kind of spring cleaning yesterday while I was out! YEP, and I mean cleaning from top to bottom. He even got the babies of of the bed for a while too...
Now to just find my camera.

Lady of the Mote said...

it not that bad,you keep his side nice,
I am like you I clean what you see,just dont go into my closet,hazard area!
I dont have to share it with my hubby so I just dump my stuff,I do try to keep it organized but it never works,
just kick the stuff under the bed,lol!

Dawnie said...

i WONT take a picture of whats under that bed...lol

you know you look at some of the stuff on our nightstands and its really pathetic. the feather thing on baldymans nightstand..he WONT part with that. its the only thing he has from his grandma, now i appreciate that but can it get any uglier? and me--why so many water bottles??? by the way i did change his linen! I will get rid of some of the water bottles to.

Bridget said...

LOL Kudos to you for showing how folks really live!!
Maybe you need a bigger basket for your magazines. I have baskets and baskets of decorating mags.
I love your lion!

Ginger said...

Does Baldyman do his own cleaning on his side? I should take some pics of my house...it's clean because we had people over to watch the superbowl...well, all except for the master bedroom. I just closed the door on it.
I would rather be doing anything but house cleaning...yuck. lol.

Judy said...

Hey your bed is made and as long as my bed is made my room is clean. My rooms are so full of stuff that it always looks messy.

Dawnie:
I want to respond on so many levels...

I, being OCD, want to get a plane ticket and come and make this all better for you.

I, as a fellow blogger, am humbled at your trust to share the "real" Dawnie.

I, as an independent thinker, think if it works for you, then you go girl.

I used to manage a bunch of office workers who were incredibly talented but their desks looked very similar to your side of the room and while I could not understand, I could live with their ability to get the job doneI

And be sure to join in the next Chenille Day at Rose Haven as that bedspread is beautiful!

Dawnie you crack me up. In our house, it's my side of the bed that you see when you walk in, so DH gets to be a piglet and I have to be neat - I think I'm going to suggest switching sides lol. Kathy

Tootsie said...

my girl...it is messy! and do I need to remind us all that there is a difference between messy and dirty? lol
My pantry closet gets that way...my kids are horrible slobs.
I am a neat freak and am forever cleaning something...including my greenhouse...well most of the time! You all have seen how that looks....
my messy spot would have to be the garage! I am not even parking in there at the moment...it is a disaster area!
you make me laugh...good luck with your side of the bed!

Tootsie said...

by the way...I LOVE raggedy girls comment! couldn't have said it better myself!

Cynthia said...

Love it Dawnie! Believe me, my house is not always immaculate! The really bad thing for me is my car! Now that is a total disaster. I find things under the seat that are unbelieveable! Cindy

Joy said...

Dawn, you are one brave lady. ;o)

Lisa said...

At last, a place I can relate to! Wow, they may call in serious legal issues if I show you my dark corners of the world though. HA! Thanks for being a brave one and showing me I'm not the only one out here with piles just like this.

Shellmo said...

LOL! LOL!! Dawnie - I'll have to show you all the clothes I have on my bedroom floor....

grammy said...

you certainly are honest girlfriend. You should get a prize for that. I am not that brave. lol

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

At least it's just the floor next to your bed. My lil' piles start at one end of the house and continue through to the other end.... Thank heaven for housekeepers. She tidy's up my piles, but eventually I have to sort through them. The funny thing is, when I start sorting my magazines I usually become distracted by rereading them for a couple hours. It's always a work in progress.LOL!

Sweet wishes,
Sara

Sassy said...

LillyB said...
