Photohunt: Messy


The photohunt theme this week is messy, and that's an easy one for me. Since the new year will soon be here, this photohunt post will serve as a reminder of messy areas that I should straighten up.
As you can see above, I have a messy array of books on the floor beside the bedside table. The bedside table has plenty of books, date books, and journals on it or in the underneath part. Still I end up with this clutter spread out on the floor. My new year's resolution is either to straighten it up every day or assume there is no hope and it will always be messy. Not sure which I'll choose.
The shelves in my home office are up there in terms of being the messiest spot in my house. I sign on to my work network from home and rarely have to go to the office. Therefore, I have a lot of office supplies at home. No matter how often I straighten them up, they end up being messy again.The shelves beside my computer were so messy that instead of taking a picture of them I straightened them up. Therefore, my messy shelves are borderline neat in this shot. Anyone want to take bets on how long it will take for them to be messy again.

Janna said...

Hey, I'd feel right at home. It reminds me of the dorm rooms I had, almost twenty years ago!
And, um, yeah.... kinda reminds me of certain spots in my home right now, too. So you're in good company. :)

My photo hunts include road construction, a bad restaurant, and a driveway full of snow.

Hi Carver,
I'm not playing this week, just no spare time. This looks very similar to my house too, except mine is messier.
Have a wonderful New Year

everydayhealy said...

Looks like you have some work to do before New year! Me too, I need to tidy up my working table, my drawers, wardrobe and so on....

Happy New Year, Buddy! May your New Year fill with joy, health and wealth! :)

idealpinkrose said...

that's right, it's messy...hehehe...

thanks for visiting mine.

Trinity said...

dear Carver... I am back! hehehe.. Have a happy new year ahead!!

My house is in a mess as well.. hihihihii... we should tidy up before 2008, shouldn't we?

Heart of Rachel said...

I can relate. I have to do some cleaning in some parts of the house before New Year. We believe that it is good to welcome the New Year with a clean and organized house.

JC said...

I've hear a messy house is a happy house... I like that rule. Happy new year to you and yours!

T.R. said...

I want that rug!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I feel like I could move right in and never know I had changed owners!

eastcoastlife said...

hahaha.... you are not alone. My work area and bedside is as messy as yours!

Dear carver,
Have a happy and healthy new year. It's great knowing you. You are such an angel. Hugs

Happy 2008!

Barbara H. @ Stray Thoughts said...

Those kinds of areas are the hardest to keep neat, I think.

maiylah said...

the shelves on your home office looks like the one in ours ... lol.

Happy Holidays!

Love the mess. I didn't dare take a photo of my own, as it drives me crazy!

Huey said...

Ok, it's really more of a mess than I could bargain for!
My Version of Messy

Sean said...

Sorry to say... I can't stand with such desk...

A. said...

Messy, but that's what I call normal :) I've become one of the no-hope crowd - I gave up on new year resolutions some time ago!

Yen said...

Messy alrighty! Perfect photos for the theme too:)

My Photo Hunt is up as well! Enjoy the rest of the Holidays!

Cindy said...

If you're like me, you'll do good for a week with preventing "messy" but then you'll resign yourself to the fact that it's just not happening- messy it is and messy it will be...there are worse things in life.

Starz in De Sky said...

wow... That's really messy. u've got a lot of things.
Happy new year

Mark said...

Hi Carver,
Looks like you have your work cut out, if it's anything like my daughters bedroom then it wont be long before it's back how it was. When my wife goes around tidying I can never find anything I have left somewhere as she had moved it...drives me mad

Happy New Year

Mark

You've got a lot of messy. :)

Good Luck with your New Years Resolutions.

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting. I've enjoyed the variety of messes that have been posted for this theme.

Lazy Daisy said...

I need to do an end of the year "put the Christmas decorations away" clean. Love the shelves...you did a great job.

Dorid said...

that's a lot of STUFF! I don't think I could function with my work area at home looking like that! I like having everything at my fingertips, but...

Theresa said...

Looks like you are planning a trip in the first picture? I do have to agree your second self was very messy.

I laughed at your last shot, before I read it, I thought wow she is really particular, because I was trying to find something messy about it- I thought there is that one computer wire-- then I read your comment. I am the same way, I can stand a little mess, but once a mess gets on my nerves I have to clean it up then and there! For just two people living in our house it is surprising how messy it can get and we marvel how it could get that way- we usually agree it is the cat's fault.

the teach said...

You're right, your office, my office, messy. But the area you straightened up looks real nice! I gotta do that...
Happy New Year to you! You've been a great blogging friend.

♥Shabem-®♥ said...

I ended up putting my CD collection in the box because I have tons of them.
Those are messy indeed!

Gattina said...

I don't have to bed, I am sure it will look messy again after an hour, lol ! But never mind some people have order in their mess !

Sabine said...

Carver, that looks as messy as my own home!! Seems like we have a thing or two in common LOL!

Happy weekend - and a happy New Year, too!

YTSL said...

Good on you for cleaning some of your mess as well as taking a picture of other portions of it. Good luck keeping some of your space un-messy in the new year! :)

Dragonheart and Merlin said...

Nice job straightening up the shelves! It seems that no matter how hard you try, certain areas just become messy, no matter what.

Angela said...

Perfect shot for our theme. I think we all have times that we get messy around the computer area.

Have a great New Year!
Angela

Liza said...

Great shots of messy. Thanks for dropping by ;)

Advance Happy New Year to you and your family.

A Simple Life said...

Messy indeed. Happy New Year.

techieDan said...

Katney said...

My similar places are so messy that I don't dare take pictures of them.

Dan said...

its really messy!...

GBex said...

it is indeed messy...mine is up now , too....happy new year to you!....

lissa said...

I don't think there's anything wrong with messy homes as long as you know where to draw the line.


Thanks for visiting my photohunt and have a wonderful week.

GBex said...

that was so cute sight though it's really a bit messy....
happy new year to you my friend!

KISSEDALOTATOADS said...

If you clean it up, you will never find anything! Great photos and have a Happy New Year.

Chris said...

Carver, pssst i tellyou a secret..mess are alive and they reproduce. in spite of all my efforts, they always come back n multiply :)

Happy new year, my internet friend. May the coming year be full of God's grace.

Heather said...

Yup--I am looking forward to my New YEars cleanup and clean out--though now that I have been trying to keep on top of it for several years we don't have nearly as much spare clutter. :)

Colin Campbell said...

Most of our house looks worse than this at the moment. The joys of moving.

Lorian said...

I hate that too! I have areas that just always look messy no matter what I do! Great shots for the theme!

Carver said...

Thanks again to everyone for visiting.

Vic, the Cariboo Ponderer said...

Oh dear! How can you find anything. Mind you I keep my messiness hidden inside closets so I am a bit hypocritical about it. I think my husband fears that one day I will come out of the closet. LOL

AscenderRisesAbove said...

that's it? that's messy? Stop by and I will give you lessons! ;-)

julie said...

Yup, messy but we have that too in our library. Straighten it up and you'll have the same mess after a few weeks.

Wishing you the best for 2008, Carver! :)

My Messy Photo

Katya said...

hehehe....I am totally convinced the only way to have a clean home office is to have one that slides out of the wall like a "Murphy bed"...no, that is no guarntee it will actually be CLEAN, but, in order to not have to see it, you just slide it BACK! "outta sight, outta mind",eh?
