Thursday Thirteen: Messes (actually 12 +1clean)
As I was downloading the bazillion pictures I have taken of the cats together in the last few days, I started heading down memory lane and looking at old pictures. I discovered that I seem to have a fetish for taking pictures of messes. I don't know if it is to make me feel better when they are clean, or to remember that my house can always be worse than what it is at any given time.
At any rate, you, my reader, are bound to feel better about your own homes after seeing 13 messes over the years that I have taken pictures

One of our favorite pictures of the boys. We call it "The Calm After The Storm". We love everything about this picture: the mess, the bareness, the hat, the calm reading.
The reason we got rid of that loft bed. The bed wasn't high enough for useful space underneath so it just became a place to make messes. This was an attempt at a fort.
Even the cats have to contend with messes when they play
And for one chance to redeem ourselves...a before AND after shot of when we redid our upstairs room.
So are you feeling better yet?
