Life is kinda messy.

Literally.  And cluttered.  And grimy.  And in the summer, full of games, puzzles, bionicles, and down time.  IMG_5772

 

Someday, I’ll have a neater house.  With less clutter.  And certainly without grimy oak coffee tables, and fingerprints on the microwave, and hand/dirt/smudgemarks on all the walls 4’ and down, and disgusting bathroom … (ewww, let’s not go there) … Someday.  Someday in the not too distant future; probably within a decade.  And I’m probably going to get all sentimental and miss these things.

 

Oh, who am I kidding?  I’m not gonna miss the sticky fingerprints or the dirty walls or the bathroom disgustingness.  But this cluttered coffee table with life happening all over it?  I’m gonna miss it.

Love your lived in house! I used to think I could only post perfect pictures of my house. Then I got over that when I could not find any perfect pictures! Glad you are enjoying summer!

I LOVE this!!! And I can't help but look at that and think that Lucy would either throw the puzzle on the floor or try to eat it, so I am kind of looking forward to being able to leave puzzles-in-progress on the coffee table! :)

Gosh, I think our coffee tables are related! Well, ours is mostly covered in lego pieces...but still...I can hardly see what color it is! And I'm not worrying about it a bit!
