I'm going crazy in here

My side of the bed










His side of the bed










My side of the sink










His side of the sink










Since environment effects moods, guess which mood I am in 90% of the time!

I've been there.
Although I can be messy at times, I hate clutter.
I will admit, when I quit letting it bother me so much (it still does some) my wife became more organized.
I don't get it.
Nice contrast.

I used to clean it. It would look messy again as soon as he got home. And as far as the clothes on the floor go, I get in trouble when I clean those up because there always manages to be something in the pockets or that cant be dried or he planned to wear right away. I just can't win!

Okay, so I don't know about those people who say clean it up. We are supposed to be "help mates" not "do it all mates". I used to have that same problem with Patrick years ago. I finally just stopped cleaning for a few weeks...Yes, I thought I would go mad. I only did my laundry and Patrick started seeing the house in a whole new light. He wanted to know why he didn't have clean clothes and why the bathroom was so dirty. See he hadn't been listening to my plea to pick-up after himself and it doesn't take that long or that much effort on his part. Now that he is helping not hindering I can do those extra special dinners he love or any number of things with a great attitude. Patrick is now wonderful at picking up things and goes the extra mile around the house. Hope this helps.

nothing like posting your partner's dirty laundry in front of the whole world!

the question is: in 100 years, will this matter? yea,verily, this too shall pass.... to put it bluntly: if he were hit by a bus, you would miss his mess ... love them we must, whatever that entails. P.S. I remember your room as your were growing up... enough said

I get to encounter the same thing in just over a month...He likes to throw clean clothes on the bed and dirty clothes on the floor. I'm determined to make that change, especially since we have hampers now! I'll let you know how that goes over ;).

Okay.......so men are not always organizers and do not always have time to be "perfect". Get a basket for his side of the bed for dirty clothes. He can then put "other" in one spot. Then get a tray or basket to put on the sink for his stuff. What lands in the tray may not be perfect, but at least it would be there. You would be amazed!

Ok anonymous's first of all, be brave enough to put your names on your comments instead of remaining "anonymous' please. I am not going to rip your head off or anything...

With that said...
There is a hamper on his side of the bed (not in the picture b/c I moved it to not clutter up his side unfairly) with three sections for placing clothes and towels in it. Not to mention the other, smaller hamper right next to his nightstand that is supposed to hold all of the special instructions when washed clothes. As for the bathroom, he has a basket, a cabinet and a medicine cabinet available and only available to him. The opportunity for putting things in a more wife friendly place is always there, just not used often enough.

I know he isnt perfect, either am I. I just like making fun of his imperfections!

No, you didn't.

Ouch.

Nathan. You poor man. I'm sure you deserve it, but I'm feeling your pain about now. Your mess, online, to the whole world. I'm glad nobody's posting pics of MY bedroom online.

Phew.
