Dearest Rachel –
Rather than talk to Daniel about the people he listens to, I figured we might as well work on the stuff in his room. After all, we’re down to his room as far as the cleaning process goes. It will make more sense, and be less painful, if he’s involved in the process. And maybe it’s easier to start with me than with Jan.
We’re still probably going to go slowly. For one thing, neither of us is Jan – upon looking at what there is in his room, I for one, have no idea where to start.
For what it’s worth, Daniel elects to start with the closet – pretty much the opposite of the way we tackled the yellow room. but it proves to be a very good choice, as he finds stuff that doesn’t even belong to him, and may explain why he has so much scattered about the room, when he can’t get it into a closet that doesn’t even have his stuff in it.
I’m thinking we boxed these things up back when we moved from the condominium in 1996, stuffed them in Daniel’s closet, meant to take them out and put them somewhere else…and never did. So he couldn’t put some of his stuff away, because we were occupying his closet. Which means a part of his mess is more on us than him.
At least he’s willing to do the work. And as a result, things are showing some improvement. I really do hope that Jan will be pleased.
Well, we’ll find out tomorrow.
