Retirement is a week filled with Saturdays and Sundays interrupted only occasionally by a holiday.

Clean Sweeping, Part II

I’ve created a monster…oh yes…a monster. I was at work today (my very part-time training position with the Library) when I called my husband to remind him I would be home an hour later than usual since I went out to lunch with some of “the girls” in the unit. So what does my husband tell me? He tells me he’s been doing more house de-cluttering and, BTW, he’s cleaned off the top of my dresser (yes, MY dresser) and he’s found a drawer of scarves under the platform bed in the front bedroom (where he's planning to store our too-large CD collection) and I really need to decide what to do with those scarves. Geez…I thought I’d already decided what to do with them ages ago…that’s why they were neatly folded in that drawer. And the top of my dresser…OMG…what the heck was he doing rummaging around my stuff?!?!? What did he throw out? Where did he put things? And why did he do this…because my dresser is the perfect place to set his soon-to-be-purchased 32” HDTV for the bedroom. So…now I’m home, staring at rooms filled with “debris,” trying to remember what I had on my dresser and what I need to look for in the trash. And this is all because I bought that damn 20” HDTV for the den last week. Grrrr…

I feel your pain...I would freak out if my hubby did that to me...I mean all of your valuable clutter...what was your hubby thinking???????

Another thought...please tell your hubby "Instead of Clean Sweeping, he should be blogging" (that ought to keep him busy!)

All I can say (and I am sure it will get me in trouble with you) is seems very very funny to me the single person. I imagine you just standing in shock looking around trying to figure out what's missing. Hope you find all your treasures!!
