Nothing can make as much of a mess as the ADHD person packing if doing so at the last minute.
I came home and entered by bedroom to see the result of the whirling devilish type packing.
This is how my one kid would get ready EVERY morning as a kid:
It was just a surprise to me to open the door and SEE the state of it! I forgot that in my packing and time had that I has a couple constraints. One was the mattress I set up at the foot of my bed abuts the dresser I could barely access ( the bed the college grad was asked to use rather than take over the living room as bedroom. The kid did share my room for ONE week of a visit once this year and it was NICE! They slept well, others could enter the living room without disturbing the kid. BuT this time the kid never made it upstairs. Their stuff also has never made it past the front quarter of my living room.
Gandalf saw what looks like the hoarder pile
The kid may be surprised there is not room on the attic. Heck before AUG I need to clean out the attic and purge getting rid of what I can.
One more month with the college grad.
Honestly now not minding the kid camped out in the living room. The kid did head upstairs the one day I did want Gandalf's company here ( he wanted to accompany me to church, curious as to my beliefs/faith. He has genuine interest and happens to be agnostic but raised in a Christian family. Early years were of involvement in a church so he has old church friends from 30 plus years ago still in his 🌎. One brother is a bona fide so called missionary.
I have met "missionaries" before
And just saying .....interesting how their " spiritual " outreach and " evangelizing " is in hot spots at times...
Maybe my overactive imagination
But I feed like " Sure you are so faithful filled you want to evangelize...."
Ok I won't go into that.
I did enjoy meeting the one gal that ROCKED her mission marketing and successful raised money from these rich folks in NoVA so she could live in a Guatemalan village (I think 🤔 if recall correctly ) to teach.
Of couse she met a fellow....of couse she will maje a life there....been fun to watch the " missionary" work ( I found her personal social media when folks handed over their money to support her travels). Not a bad gig.
I should not be so cynical. But even in my church I am tge one who followed the money. When a National org special collection was for " at risk" Youth I dug to find out WHAT the ACTUAL programs the money supports.
Everything is a business....
Even a country.
( But also is an excuse for wars which is the most perplexing and infuriating/ frustrating part: How to be in a fsith community NOT intersecting with that violence.)
