Friday House...


My house has a condition known far and wide as "Friday House". It's a horrible virus that runs through the veins of the home as soon as the weekend cleaning is over and terrorizes the central nervous system of any home where a family who works and goes to school Monday through Friday lives. It collects the mail and newspaper on the kitchen table until you can't see said table. Shoes and jackets pile up in various places around the house. Closets spill over with clothes carelessly flung off of their hangers. It is a sad state of affairs and tends to make the owners of the home very grouchy. My friday house condition for this week will be over soon. I can't wait to see it go...

Even though your table is full of stuff... it's still all so nice and neat! I love your term Friday House!

Since that goes on in this house, day in, day out, week after week, etc., I think our house could probably be best called then "perennial house" -and it most definitely applies to my computer desk! Don't touch anything on it for fear of an avalanche of papers, photos, cds and who knows what else that might fall and heaven forbid, might accidentally find its way to the trash can too!

Behind the things on your table I see pretty flowers.
My table is always covered with papers that I have to move when company comes.

You're too cute Paula! Your Friday House looks so elegant though. Mine unfortunately has the Friday syndrome too, but combined with all of the unfinished DIY projects, it just sort of looks like a pit of dispair! ;) I need to get cracking on it!

Have a lovely weekend. :)

How I remember those days. The problem is, now that the kids are grown and my Monday through Friday is calmer, my table still seems to be covered with stuff all the time. Right now, it's wedding planning projects. I think dining room tables just attract "stuff."

I love that phrase 'Friday House'! Have you been to my home?
There is a corresponding 'Sunday night house' too. It is much shorter virus though.
