About a 1.5 years ago I wrote a blog about my garage…or “crapage” I had called it…I don’t know how else to describe this thing aside from a pure evil junk staging point that never ends.
No matter what I do, I can’t keep this place clean.
Back when I wrote the original rant it was probably at it’s worst. And I’m not kidding - it was really bad.
2nd time now...the crapage...
I hired a junk removal bin so I could load up all the crap and clear it out. Well - it took two bins because I walked into my unfinished basement and realized it too became the landing point for about 6 years of unwanted but needed and will not throw away things.
Firstly - let me forewarn husbands here…don’t do this with your wife at home if she’s the one who placed most of the stuff down there. That can be dangerous to you. I learned the hard way as usual. Best to do this when she’s not around. Or…vise-versa for the couples who have the opposite spousal issues.
Anyway…two friggin bins were filled from my house. TWO.
What’s my point you may ask?
Well - today I’ve had enough. I can’t even walk through my garage anymore from end to end…again. I swear we have a recycling program in Calgary and 100% positive it’s my son’s job to do the recycling. Well hot dog - somehow there is a pile of flattened boxes in the middle of the garage floor with other recyclable junk strewn all over it.
That’s just the start of it…old computer boxes, printer boxes with dead printers, horse supplies for the horse that is non existent, two set’s of summer tires blocking the entrance…what the heck?
I must take the brunt of the blame here. Certainly unable to blame everyone else when it’s my tires, my old computer equipment, my idea to place bags full of unwanted books?
Though I’d love to say it’s my wife’s consumerism practices perfected…yes she contributes…but I’m the one to blame.
Yikes…somebody help me please?
