SD19's old bedroom
So, since DH and I moved SD19's bed to the basement a few weeks ago, she still continues to use her old bedroom as a dump. Her suitcases from college are in there, open, with clothes spilling out of them. She has done laundry weekly, but then just throws the clean pile of clothes on the floor. The dirty clothes go into a pile on the floor, too, and this is why her old room still smells like ass.
This morning I told DH to go spray air freshener in there while SD19 was at work. I told him that she is "ruining our investment" by treating her old room like a trashcan. I asked DH if SD19 used the closet in the basement for anything? Has she moved her clothes down there? DH said that she didn't have anything in that closet except for the hedgehog. Evidently it's too much effort for SD19 to bend over and get the hedgehog from its plastic bin on the floor, so DH has moved an entire steel rack into the closet. To put the HHog bin on. This shelf set was sitting in the unfinished part of our basement and I originally had suggested he move it in there for her to put clothes on. He shot me down. Now that Princess doesn't want precious HHog on the floor, the shelf unit has been moved in there. There was already an aluminum shelf unit with doors on it in there, that SD13 and I cleaned out for SD19. But nothing of hers is in there. SD19 still does her makeup and hair in her old bathroom that she shares with SD13 upstairs. SD19 has her own powder room downstairs but won't get ready in there. I want to change this for the fall when she is on break from college, but I'm sure it will be too cold for her in the basement. Wouldn't want Princess t be uncomfortable.
So, the initial reason for my post about the old bedroom today? SD19 just got home from work and DH told her to put carpet freshener in her old room and vacuum! Finally DH parented SD19! All it took was me sending him in there with the air freshener to see and smell the wonder that is SD19. I told him her old room even stinks when she's not here. That was probably from her old bed being in there and the sheets not being washed for months. The bed is in the basement now, but now the old room is a dirty clothes hamper. Not sure how she is going to vacuum around all of that stuff. I keep asking DH where her old clothes hamper is? I'm sure it's full of crap from college that has been sitting around for nearly a month. I haven't looked in the basement since she's been home. I don't dare.
We are getting the basement tiled and DH wants to do it while the skids are at the beach with Gma in a few weeks. Perfect opportunity for DH to have SD19 clean the basement, too.
My house is a wreck so I stay in my room. SD19 just showered so maybe she is going out somewhere. My luck she'll just sit around the house on her ass with DH all day, texting. She still hasn't vacuumed her old room yet.
