Today should be full of fun and laughter…
Oh who am I kidding? I’m going to be spending some time cleaning out my home office. And boy does it ever need it. It’s become a ‘catch all’ for anything that no one wants. Namely my kids after a rare day of cleaning their bedrooms.
I wonder if today will be as exciting as yesterday morning when I took the time to clean out our coat closet — another ‘catch all’ location.
Here’s the scenario — I gradually pulled out every single item in the closet and anything I didn’t want I tossed in or near an unstuffed trash bag. Well, as I was doing that hubby was secretly pulling things out of the trash and setting them aside as if he planned to keep them. “Uh, huh uh, that stuff is going in the trash“, I told him. “It’s been sitting in here for too long and not been used… so it’s going in the trash!”
“But we might need it“, he says. “Um, we don’t really need 15 knitted hats, especially when they don’t fit, so I think we can get rid of the kids’ hats and gloves they wore in 4th or 5th grade“. Considering the kids I’m referring to are now 18 and soon to be 20, I think it’s time to let go. What do you all think?
That went on for some time yesterday until I had to lay down the law. My hubby knows darned well we don’t need all of this stuff. And that’s what it’s become is just stuff that no one wants or needs. He’s a pack rat and it’s gotten out of hand. I don’t want to wind up on the Hoarders show. Ya know what I mean?
I’m Mrs. Clean, I can’t live in piles of crap. I’ll go insane. hahaa! It’s time to clean house here and by that I mean do a major clean up and consolidate. I need my space back and I plan to take it back with full force. Sorry hubby, but you lose! Now let’s get to work!
