I now love mess

How do you handle a messy room?
I sit on the bed and look around at the helter skelter mess that grows and grows. It isnt that messy today. I can actually see a little bit of the bed and quite a bit of the floor today. Its been sometime I gave up active cleaning. Why bother when the clean room lasts about as long as i clean and i now have stopped dreaming about ever living in a clean house. I now handle mess in a more efficient way. Step one. Look around... Admire all the things that have turned up on the bed. There are sketch pens, some open... A scrap book...Cleaning tissues. Used tissues... Kiddo books.. mp3 player... Mobile phone.. wet towel... Baby Powder...tea cup... Banana peel...a husband with an ipad. After you have finished sighing, close your eyes. And go to sleep.

Messing up and then cleaning up and then again messing up .... that is life in a nutshell!

@vani, B and Anil... I tell myself ... This mess is infinitely better than a clean house without kids. And the rate at which time is fleeting.. the day wont be too long in coming when the kids will move on and leave a clean empty nest behind :)

I like the "husband with an ipad" bit that's apparently an item on the mess list. lol
