Wait Lists and Wallpaper

This is my bedroom.

It was not always this messy until we started packing.

This is my little brothers bedroom. It is usually this messy. And it is bigger, much bigger.
I am on a wait list to move into my own place. I am number 2002 on the wait list. They move through about 20-30 people a year. This means I could be 50 before my name comes up. So my little brother is going to switch rooms with me, so I will have more space as I grow older. They have to take the wallpaper down first. Matt doesn't like my pink stripes for some reason.

My little brother can be in the house, so he is doing his homework while my mom unloads our bedrooms...

...into the front room. That looks like my mattress on top of the pool table.

Oh and all my clothes too.

What a nice brother you have!

I hope you get your bear soon.

How is the Holiday Inn? I guess they have good internet service! Is there a pool?

I hope that you can get back home soon, at least to snatch your bear. Hannah has a favorite bear, Molasses, who has to go with us on trips. Sometimes he goes to the doctor with her as well.

Joyce, can you explain that wait list. I do not understand the long wait. How long have you been on it. Is that something we should be getting our children on now?
