A Clean Bathroom


In keeping with yesterday's post about my empty nest, I give you my layout about a clean bathroom. This small little room gave me the most angst while the girls were teenagers. It never seemed to bother them when their friends came over and saw their dirty clothes all over the floor and counters and their bras hanging on doorknobs. It bothered me, though, because I never knew when someone like my mother would drop by and want to use that room. The funny thing is that I am not a clean freak. A little clutter does not bother me. When the kids were little, I wasn't worried about toys in the living room or unfolded laundry. I preferred to play with them as much as I could. How about you? Are you a fastidious housekeeper or laid back and casual about it?

I'm more of a laid back and casual cleaner. Little man's toys are picked up at least once a day and that's good enough for me. :D

I am very laid back and casual about my housekeeping- a trait my DH doesn't care for. LOL!!

Detta,
Just a note to tell you what a lucky girl you were to have such a wonderful daddy. I to have lost my daddy and miss him terribly. Are you sure we didn't share a daddy? Mine was a lot like yours!! Even the cowboy hat!!

Happy Blog Birthday!

p.s. Cleaning?! Who has time, what with all the scrapbooking to be done!! Actually, I have 2 teens at home and 2 mothers in my house (besides me) and we do a pretty decent job, not perfect and none of us are neat freaks, but it is very livable!

Happy Blog Birthday! Having grandchildren in our home was a little bit of a rethink on cleaning. Much more fun to play than clean. But I do love a clean bathroom and kitchen.

I totally LOVE this layout....and that it's about your bathroom!!! I think I could practically impose any other pic over that one...and it would look AWESOME!

Can I "scraplift"? I'll totally acknowlege that you were my inspiration! ;)
