It's Thirsty Thursday!

Time for another fun filled addition of Thirsty Thursday!

Today I need advice and lots of it! 

Today I'd like to talk about my son Pat's bedroom - here are some pictures recently taken (10 minutes ago) of Pat's bedroom.  Pat has a very bad habit of being a typical 16 year old boy who takes food to the bedroom when his Mother is not looking.  No matter how many times his Mother has begged, pleaded and yelled - Pat continues to smuggle contraband into his room - note the juice boxes sitting on his table.  What's a Mother to do about this ugly situation?  Seriously friends, I have asked every day for the last week - begged - screamed at him - NOTHING works! 

Notice the laundry  basket here with what was once folded laundry just waiting for it's own special place in the drawer?  Note the pile of mismash here and some brand new shirts with the tags still on them! 

Note the bed here with the blanket on top - he sleeps on top of the bedspread - why - to save from cleaning?  I THINK NOT!

So while all my friends out there are mulling over the best advice they can give me - I'll be mulling over this later!  AFTER the little slob's Lacrosse game this afternoon!

Happy Thirsty Thursday everyone!


  1. Hmm, not sure you can do much with that. The good news is, his debris is juice boxes and not something else!

  2. I think that boy's room warrants something MUCH stronger than a light beaujolais.

  3. What used to work for me, was to take the boys in hand and walk them thru cleaning the room up.
    In just 15-30 minutes, you both can clean the whole thing up and then the reward? A driving lesson perhaps? What does he really want?
    Jim is 86 and I can follow the crumbs all around the house from his eating sans a plate. Some things never change.

  4. One of the cures in our house was the day she found a bug infestation that was "WHAT??!! Why is it only in MY room?????"

  5. Holy moly, Lombardi! Looks like a bomb went off in there! I don't know that I can give you any advice, being the OCD type that I am, and living alone! That room would probably put me into cardic arrest. I am destined to live with my dog only. :) And yeah, more than a light beaujolais, is right! Tequila plus shot glass. tee hee hee

  6. Wish I could say it gets better, but 21 yr. old son still living at home has a room that looks as bad-if not worse.
