The curtains are never opened anymore. It's twilight when I get home (if I get home, I've gotten awful cozy with that office couch) and twilight when I leave in the morning. Opening and closing curtains is a waste of time.
Laundry basket in the middle of the living room. A convenient crossroads between front door, bed, bath, kitchen, and computer. I can just strip and chuck my dirties at whatever convenient point or time. Results in slightly eccentric half naked home attire. Good thing those curtains are closed.
The living room is a mess. The pile of 'I wore it once but I don't think it is too stinky yet' clothes have sprawled out of the bedroom and are trying to join the dirties in the living room. Not to mention the piles of shoes, backpacks, and week old Emails that never got tossed.
I've got nothing clean to wear. The time it takes to do laundry conflicts with the time I could be fixing lunches, or answering Emails, or sleeping, or eating, or bathing or...
Kitchen foods are now on the counter instead of in cupboards. When the cereal is sitting out I don't have to look for it. Plus the crackers, the granola bars, raisins, Doritos and sandwich baggies. I would leave the meats, cheeses and milk sitting out too but I tried that back when I was nine and it didn't work out so well.
The kitchen is a mess. Along with all the foodstuffs my dirty dishes are piling up. The time it takes to run the washer now conflicts with the time I could be doing laundry or sleeping or bathing or eating or...
Alarm clock permanently set to 3:15 AM. I only need that time twice a week, the other days I just turn it off 'cause I am waking up at 5:30 on my own.
Post-it notes freakin' everywhere. Don't forget to call so-and-so. Don't forget to stop and pick up some stuff on your way in this morning. Here's one that says "Don't forget your lunch." Thanks genius. It's probably a waste of time to smack myself.
Half naked home attire, eh?
