Drapes Open Or Closed?

When you walk into a room, do you close the shades and pull the curtains together?  Or do you flip open the blinds, crank the windows, and let the light shine in?

You guessed it, I’m a drape opener.  I’d rather have the light.  Heck, I don’t even close the drapes at night.  I really don’t care if people spy on me.  If they don’t have anything better to do, I say let them watch!  Some people need to get a life, and I’m really not concerned it they watch mine.

Ok, I realize there are two sides to everything.  (I happen to be married to a drape closer who won’t even let me post pictures of him on the blog!)

Drape closers tend to be more private.  Lots of them don’t blog.  It’s nobody’s business what they eat for dinner or watch on T.V.  And drape closers remind us that there are weirdoes out there.  Why make some psycho's life easier by keeping the drapes open?  And drape closers further remind us that we need to teach our kids some modesty and protect them by closing the curtains and pulling the blinds.

Maybe drape closers have some good points.  But overall, I still think closed blinds are overrated.  What do you think?

Are you a drape opener or a drape closer?  Is there room for anything in between?

I too am a drape opener living with a drape closer. I like to experience the world outside my home. I like to be reminded that there are things happening beyond the walls of our home, to see someone walking down the sidewalk without a coat in 17 degree weather and be reminded how very blessed our family is.
