Weekly Photo Challenge: Hope with Haiku Sunday (shaken, not stirred)

She said “Clean your room”

Two weeks, I didn’t believe

Mom sure kept her word

She hopes I clean it

I hope to get my bed back

Hope won’t get it done

Time to get cracking

The couch, not comfortable

Hope springs eternal

Bye Bye Bed!

To anyone who thinks her room looks good or I was harsh: This was done after I cleared it out a few weeks ago. Everything on her floor, on her desk and scattered on her dressers was moved to the guest room. She never bothered to clean up those belongings and managed to create more of a mess in her room. Over it! She was warned….she just didn’t believe me.

  1. Love this!

    I once took the door off of my sons bedroom. Obviously for a different reason (trust). He whined for days then finally said……”I need my privacy”

    My reply “anything you need privacy for can be accomplished in five minutes in the bathroom, including showering. If you take longer I will remove that door as well.”

    Tough love indeed. But sometimes required.


    1. I love that story. Good for you. I’ll have to use that line one day. We’ve taken my son’s door off here before as well.

      They don’t seem to realize that it’s their fault it got that far. Oh well….


  2. A very good lesson me thinks? 🙂 I will be reading all of your
    transported goodies as soon as I get the opportunity so keep
    adding all the time and I will be calling in to read them 🙂

    Have a great rest of evening Lorre 🙂

      1. There isn’t a lot left but I am adding again
        and so hopefully you will find something in
        the mix to whet your appetite 🙂 I hope so 🙂

        Be good, but never too good okay? 😉

      2. You need to go to the 29th of October to find something that you might like on my Space just click through the calendar until you hit October (its on the left of my Space in the side bar) then click the 29th and there you have a chick pic 🙂

        Have fun reading it, or should I say viewing it? 😉

      3. Okay. I stopped by when the kids stepped out of the room. Something for the ladies indeed. I’m glad my hubby wasn’t in the room. He may start to question what I’m actually looking at on the internet.


  3. Killing me funny with your haiku! 🙂 🙂 🙂 That would make me clean pronto. Love, love, love, my cozy, comfy bed. GFY for sticking to your word. That really matters in this world of slippery goal posts.


    1. I needed one the first round with her. I especially loved finding the two bags of open chips that had been under her bed for how long…..who knows. Finding two mice in my house this weekend didn’t add to my joy for her.


  4. At least this should make the cleaning process so much easier. For your daughter! My son once left his breakfast dishes on the table before going to school rather than bother stacking them in the dishwasher. I put them on his bed, which was a huge effort on my part if only because his room was so much further away than the dishwasher. . . He was shocked when he came home from school that they were there. I explained to him that “the maid” didn’t come by today. But, he said, we don’t have a maid . . . .
    I thought toddlers were hard work. Good luck!


    1. That is a great idea. I actually did that myself in college. My roomie was supposed to do the dishes and just kept forgetting. SO…..I put them all on her bed as well. She was a little pissed off to say the least, but she did wash them.

      She got me back though. During spring break someone broke into our apartment and only stole stuff from me. Hmmmmm.


    1. She’s not as fast moving as I’d expect, but she’s been off of school, so sleeping on the couch has been like a treat for here. I don’t think it will be as much fun tonight with a set bedtime and the t.v. off.


Okay. Let it out!
