Who Are You and What Have You Done With My Child??

What happened here????? The whirlwind began at about 7:30 last night. And this was the result!


I did not know this was in the works or I would have made sure to get some "before" shots . . .
But, as my family members can attest - IT DID NOT LOOK LIKE THIS YESTERDAY MORNING!

When she came out of her room with 3 bags of garbage and said, "I need to get the vacuum . . ." my husband and I just looked at each other and said "Who is this and what did she do with our child?"

Those of you out there with 13 year old children know that this is a rare, rare, rare occurrence. I wanted to preserve it for posterity!


Must be that "back to school" thing - I'm not complaining!

Any more takers for "Pay It Forward"? (See previous post) I've only got one - the lovely Ramona from Campanula for the Cure and I have room for two more ;-) Ramona, I've got my thiking cap on - I'm considering something stunning with a dramatic flair!

EEEK!!! The "Pod People" have struck! Or was it the aliens?!? It had to be something! We are both in shock here!!!

Whatever it was ~~ find out and bottle it! You could make a million, with such an elixir, selling it to Moms all over the world. Slip some in their morning OJ and... Voila! Clean/neat kid's bedrooms, whether they want to or not! >,-)

It looks like she even polished all the wooden surfaces!

you'll have to take careful note of how long it lasts.
If she knows that you're blogging about her clean room, just maybe it'll stay that way a bit longer :]

Hi - please don't get creeped out that a stranger is leaving a comment here - but I just joined the Campanela craze this morning and am loving both of the socks you knit (especially the one that looks red/orange - pic posted mid-august on your blog)...and was wondering what yarn you're using? thanks so much!
