Chaos or Organized?

Perhaps this could be described as organized chaos....
This is our "teapot" guest bedroom, and someday I may regret 
posting these photos of one of my favorite rooms in our house. 
It's normally an orderly, and comfortable tea-themed guest room. 
But currently, I am using it as a "staging area" for many of Austin's supplies
for moving into the dorm at Transylvania University later this month.
 I'm known to be a pretty well organized person, 
but these piles of "stuff" depict some of the chaos of planning for an 
eighteen year old boy to move into a typical freshman dorm with the 
bathroom down the hall.  
This has been a learning experience for me. There 
are a lot of changes from the days I lived on a college campus. 
Back in my day, I coordinated my dorm room furnishings 
and colors with my roommate. 
Boys don't care what they take or if the colors clash. 
And, there are online companies specializing is selling complete dorm room
linens and all needed supplies. Trips to Walmart are not necessary except
for possibly toothpaste. 
We are awaiting a mailing with instructions with an exact time 
to arrive on move-in day, and I hope a lot more detailed information.
I will keep you updated. 
In the meantime, please bear with me as I'm spending very little time blogging.

How well I remember that organized chaos! Enjoy every moment of it, he'll be moved into that dorm in the blink of an eye.

This did bring back memories of dorm life. Wow! what excitement and anticipation. I don't remember coordinating with a roommate, but maybe we did. I do remember I took very little, I think one suitcase for clothes and the other for bedding and towels. How exciting for Austin!

Looks like you're getting it all pulled together! Excitement is in the air! Good Luck, Austin!

Still can't believe Austin is starting college! Here's hoping it's a pleasant and calm (well, as calm as can be expected) experience for all!
