And There Was Carpet!

I just finished cleaning Pete's room. Pete's room that has been un-navigable for the last several months. It took me 3 days to clean it, and by the end of my time in there today, I was throwing stuff away right and left (poor kid!). She might have opted to keep some of what I threw out if she had cleaned her room herself, but she didn't, even though she had many, many, many opportunities. And it could have been worse. I only have 1 tall kitchen sized trash bag full of trash, and a lot of it really is trash.

Here's the deal, though. I am not cleaning it again before the grandparents come for Lulu's party this weekend, and it will be clean for the party. So Pete will be told to put things away when she's done with them and that everything left out on Friday evening will be tossed into a trash bag by Husbandguy. He's too nice to do that, though. I'm just hoping the threat will be enough for her to put her toys away between now and then. It might mean more if I was the one who would be throwing everything away because I'd actually do it, but why does it always have to be me who's the Bad Guy? For real! It's not fair!!

But right now, her room is clean, and Lulu is napping so it will stay that way for at least 2 hours...
