home sweet home



Whosever room this is should be ashamed!
His underwear is hanging on the lamp.
His raincoat is there in the overstuffed chair,
And the chair is becoming quite mucky and damp.
His workbook is wedged in the window,
His sweater's been thrown on the floor.
His scarf and one ski are beneath the TV,
And his pants have been carelessly hung on the door.
His books are all jammed in the closet,
His vest has been left in the hall.
A lizard named Ed is asleep in his bed,
And his smelly old sock has been stuck to the wall.
Whosever room this is should be ashamed!
Donald or Robert or Willie or--
Huh? You say it's mine? Oh, dear,
I knew it looked familiar!

messy room- shel silverstein

(it should be called messy two houses)

I used to recite that poem to my mom when she grumbled about the state of my room... until she just closed the door giggling...

Ahhhh Shel. I love him.

As for messes: I love them also. Messes you can CLEAN. And when it is clean it will be oh so lovely. Krysta the Great: Making Order out of Chaos (and then making some terrific homemade icecream and a cocktail.)

There's no mess like a moving mess. But oh when it's done, the moving, the cleaning, the unpacking, and you sleep in the home you choose knowing it's yours . . . it's bliss.

I love Shel Silverstein. That's a great poem! I can't wait to hear more about your new home.

Packing and unpacking is a royal pain but it one of the best chances to get organized/get rid of stuff you don't want or need any longer, all with the reasoning "we don't want to pay to move this" (just in case anyone would object).

And oh - unpacking can be fun - almost like you get everything you own as Christmas gifts to decorate you new home. Sweet!

Shel Silverstein is brilliant!

Congrats on finally getting the house. Your online letters and bribes paid off!
