*Jam Room - a room we jam everything into. Also known as the 'back room'.
I'm not quite sure what has kicked him into gear. Could it be my Decluttering Theory? For quite awhile, I used to get angry & upset and feel that I was the only one who did anything around this stupid house to get rid of
Guess what? It worked!! Miracle of miracles! Now, I am a looooong ways from getting everything done. But I've really been trying to be consistent & do a little something right along. A few weeks ago I decluttered the outside of the fridge. It's stayed that way! Then I decluttered the bottom of a little cupboard that holds all my candles - straightened it up so I can get to stuff easily. Yesterday I decluttered the top of that little cupboard. I got rid of tons of papers & little things that I didn't want or need anymore went into the trash, donate box or in a bag to give to friends. I made a note of two things that I need to look for - one a basket for King Turd to put his 'pocket stuff' in when he comes home and one of those multi plug strip thingys for a charging station. Today I cleaned off the top of the cupboard AND the top of the fridge. I'm only 5'3", so what do I really care what it looks like up there? The only problem is it was D-U-S-T-Y! Every time you'd drag something down you'd get showered with dust. So, it's fixed now - all clean.
This morning, BEFORE I had my coffee, King Turd says to me, he'd been thinking about cleaning off a certain junk filled shelf in our room. He was thinking I might like to get some nice baskets to put there. Really? *Ahhhhhhh AHHHHHHHH!!* (Are you hearing those angels singing again?)
So, for all of you who don't feel that you're getting any help. Forget it. Just work on you. All you can do is change you & YOUR attitude. If you don't fret about the others in your household cleaning up their clutter & just lead by example - they WILL follow. I believe that now. I had complained for so long before and complaining didn't work, it just caused tensions. So I decided NOT that I wouldn't care anymore (because I DO and DID care), I just wouldn't fret about it.
Have you checked your attitude? Are you willing to test out the Decluttering Theory?
Bye! Love you! Have a good day, Dear!
PS. Puppy update: As much as I would love, love, love to get another baby, I think that we're going to stick with the three that we have. Now I just have to figure out another present that I want... hmmmmm....
