Different

Trent and I are different. He is fit, tidy, and a little OCD. I am not so fit, not so tidy, and pretty far from OCD. I was looking at our room this morning and I wondered how Trent can stand to live with me. Although, its a little embarrassing, I am going to post proof of our differences.

First up, our sides of the bed. Mine still has the evidence of my shopping spree from last week, our overnight bag (that never actually got used) still packed, 2 pair of pajama pants, and books piled on the nightstand. And just to make it not AS embarrassing, it isn't always this messy on my side. Don't get me wrong, its usually messy, just not this messy.
Now here is Trent's side. Nothing out of place, no piles of anything on the nightstand, and definitely no shopping bags.
Next up, our closets. I have to deep clean my closet once a week because I am such a slob. I just drop my old clothes on the floor, leave the shoes off the shelves, and, sometimes, I even have clean clothes on the floor because I am too lazy to hang them up...

And then theres Trent's. Everything hung up and straight, shoes in the right place, and clothes neatly folded.

And one last piece of evidence. Can you tell whose towel is whose?

Love this post! Isn't it amazing how different we can be and still get along?? Our husbands must love us a whole lot!

This is awesome. Trent must be related to the rest of the Karrens (except for Brian). They are all tidy as can be. Can't say so much for Brian and I. I'm way too embarrassed to post my messes right now.

Hillarious! And I think YOU are a clean freak so what does that make me?? Too bad Trent doesn't have an identical single twin brother! ;)

Trent said...

You are brave to throw this on the blog. I'm just laughing at the contrast. It is pretty funny when you look at these pictures.

That's ok, Amy, you have other great traits--like blogging to keep me up to date!!

What a funny post. And I know you didn't have to stage any of that.

So funny. It's good that you've accepted it. I love your new haircut by the way! So cute.

Brett and Jessica said...

Looks very familiar. Sorry to say I think Brett might be a little worse. I may need to do another post called OCD part 2. I think it may be genetic??

So who do your kids take after, you or Trent? Post pictures of their rooms.

That's funny cause it's exactly how our room looks except Quinn is the one that doesn't cleanup and I just leave the mess.

and yet it works! ain't marriage grand!

That is hilarious! I am like you. I have a tidy hubby and I am naturally a messy person but having only one child and no outside job has given me the extra time to be tidy - so really it isn't all your fault, you are just really busy!
