I was getting really frustrated a few weeks back. It’s been a year since I moved into the house that I’m currently living and yet the entire house looks like it just survived an apocalypse.
🙁 Most of the things were still unpacked and and still inside their respective boxes, and furnitures were mostly still unassembled.
Talk about extreme procrastination on both my part and my husband’s part. My husband is always busy and have no time to help out with the boxes, furnitures and whatnot, and I figure if I were to wait for him, everything will still be in a mess after a decade. It’s not that I haven’t experienced that with him before. We’ve been together for years and he’s quite a champion in procrastinating and giving excuse not to help me out when it comes to household things. He’s always working on the weekend, going for appointments on the weekend. Either that, or he’s always tired all the time or locking himself up in his office room to online. *SIGH*
Feeling irritated and rather bitter that night that I don’t get any help at all where my son and the house is concerned, I told my son that something has to be done about it, and it’s going to need our mother-son combined effort to actually get things done. And with my son’s help, we did a major spring-cleaning and space de-cluttering. My son and I threw away a lot of useless things, especially the things that my husband insists on keeping despite the fact that the stuff are already spoiled and useless.
To be honest, I can’t really be bothered anymore about things being sentimental value or not. As far as I’m concerned, those stuff are useless and just sitting there collecting dust, and there’s no point wasting the already small space at home to accommodate them. Plus, he’s not always at home, and I think my comfort and my son’s comfort comes first. And I’m proud to say that with our combined effort, the house is now much cleaner and definitely much more habitable. 😀
I found plenty of old CDs and DVDs while were were spring-cleaning. Wonder if I can make money selling old CDs and DVDs? An evil thought came to my mind. Maybe I should sell the old CDs and DVDs online after all and make money. After all, my son and I ought to be rewarded for cleaning up the house. 😀
Cleffairy: It takes a real man to clean up the house. And my son is a real man.
