John and I have learned over the years that only one of us stays at the hospital while the other continues on in the outside world. Hospitals have a way of draining energy and distorting time. Our usual pattern is we switch out just after dinner. The car that is not in the hospital parking garage, pulls up in the drop off circle and we quickly switch drivers before the security guards come running. Works great and saves on those incredibly high parking fees.
Usually when I leave, I go home and jump in the shower. I hate showering in the tiny closet in the parents room at the hospital. I always feel rushed as there are usually other parents waiting for their turn and I just don't get the feeling that I have washed the hospital stench off. This time, I have no working showers at home and I need to get TJ's room cleaned out, so the work crew can take his wallpaper down tomorrow.
If TJ saw his room like this he would be horrified. Good thing he is away at college. He is our neat freak. His room is ALWAYS totally organized, bed made and nothing on the floor.
We have been using it as a dumping ground since this project first started. We had not planned to do his room, but once we got into this project we realized it just needs to all be done at once so we don't have to go through this mess again.
I had to take pictures of where everything goes on TJ's shelves so I can put it all back correctly.
And the art hanging on the wall. See that lovely wallpaper. Now you know why it has to come down. So 80's like. Thanks to HGTV for pointing out on a daily basis that you can't put a house on the market with old, yucky wallpaper. Is anyone else addicted to those shows?
Well I better get to work. I can't go back to the hotel for a much needed shower until this room is totally unloaded into the PODS. We had to have one of those portable storage sheds dropped in our driveway because we are out of safe storage room. I bet the neighbors love that.
