I really enjoyed your comments on my last post. Most of you said that the picture I gave you regarding my "messy" room (see below) was not really messy at all, just normal life.
That surprised me. I guess my perception comes from a childhood of "the living room" being almost off limits and kept in a perfect state "in case of company coming.". As mentioned in my post, this is my living room. We also have a family/TV room. But actually we don't ever leave stuff lying around there either. (Keep in mind that we are Empty Nesters!)
Hubs is a bit of a minimalist in decor. To him the pic above is already too busy and full of stuff. The pic below would really freak him out! ha! If I left the house with all the books, coffee etc spread out like this, he would question my sanity.
And that, my friends is why I have moved all my writing stuff into our guest room. I will now be able to walk away and leave my journals, magazines, random pieces of paper covered with writing ideas, spread out in any way I want.
Now we will see how long it takes for him to quietly and oh-so-casually close the guest room door! Ha!
Did you grow up with a Living Room that was kept perfect?
