I've been "mentally preparing" N for this moment for . . . wow! Has it really been a year since I brought it up??
I promise to be gentle, really. I find it interesting that something that gives me a wonderful feeling of relief and accomplishment can be a cause of anxiety for my spouse. The activity? Cleaning out the closet and drawers.
Living in a small house requires attention to the over accumulation of "stuff".
Besides, there are people out there that could put these things to use. They certainly aren't going up in value as they take up real estate in our bedroom!
