Maybe you can relate to a similar experience.

The day-to-day grind of family, work, school, appointments and extracurriculars. And it can happen in only a few short days, maybe even hours. What was just an immaculately organized toy bin, closet or junk drawer has suddenly reverted to the complete and total mess it once was.
Ugh. All that hard work for nothing.
