Since you've been gone for eight months.
Yes that is how long Chelsea has been away.
Chelsea returns tonight. Needless to say I am excited, and busy cleaning her room. Not that she left it in a mess, heaven knows that would never happen.
Before Chelsea left she said, "I hope my room remains how I am leaving it." Well that lasted all but two seconds after she walked out the door.
Since you've been gone dear daughter your spotless room has become:
A catch all... yes.
A Brocante pit stop... yes
A bed for friends to sleep in... 23 times to be exact.
Plus Sacha used it as his bedroom a few times, since his bedroom has become the Brocante Headquarters / Looks-Like-a-Bomb-Exploded-in-There room.
And well a Flood happened when the roof leaked from the downpour/hail storm that ruined many a tile roofs in the area.
.... Since I am a last minute kind of person, and since I work best under pressure, and since I have had a million other things I would rather do then clean up Chelsea's room, TODAY is the DAY and the Time is NOW.
Chelsea is coming HOME!!! For a few days before heading to Paris for her last year of University... then her bedroom will return to the same ole' same ole'... Happy Place!
