I know that you all must be so sick of hearing about house cleaning and organizing and such but seriously?  When the fuck does it all get finished?

I think that maybe I just went about doing it the wrong way.  I wanted to get upstairs done but I cannot do that without having the basement done as I want to move our other computer down there.  I can't move anything down there until the decades worth of crap that I have, for some unknown reason, held onto is gone.

I am trying to sell my crap on the internet right now.  I cannot believe how people seem to want a brand new dresser for the $40.00 I am asking for it.  Fuck, if dressers only cost $40.00 you wouldn't be on the internet looking for them asshole!!!  I have managed to sell (assuming she comes to pick it up) our old 27" elephant (I mean t.v.).  Now all I need to do is get rid of the elephant holder.

Ugly isn't it?  I am thinking that it would make great firewood.  I am at the point where I am just ready to burn everything that I no longer want and/or need.  Do you notice the mess around it?  That is just more crap that I don't need that My Dear Nathan keeps telling me that I can't get rid of because it doesn't belong to me.  What is it you ask?  It is all the shit that he takes from his brothers and his Dad when they no longer want their crap!!  

I decided today that I am going to clean my living room.  At least I can have one room in my house that does not make me want to puke by being in it.  After that I figure I will clean the kitchen but only because I have to make supper at some point tonight.  

I also have to go to work....fun oh fun.  Have I mentioned that I do not think that the job that I am currently doing is worth the $180.00 per month I am making doing it?  Oh to have a maid or at least some help.  Just wait until I find my camera amongst the shit that I have still have to unpack (I know, I suck).  Then you will see why I think that Awesome Father-In-Law is oh-so-awesome.  Because what I came home to the other day....sitting on my kitchen table....is exactly what I need in the midst of my organizational nervous breakdown.  Stay tuned!!!

I'm dying to see what the FIL brought over! I spent 3 hours in my LR today, moved all the furniture to vacuum, dusted the top of the window frame, all the crap I usually don't do. At least there is one clean room in my house though.

It's never over. I suggest winning the lottery, buying a new house for all the junk, and then moving away to Grand Cayman and forgetting about it.

Or you could try FreeCycle (do you have that 'round you?) and get people to just come take the stuff...

I feel your pain - I am something of a packrat, and I married a packrat, and his packrat best friend lives in our downstairs...did you know that a person could have four dozen bowling balls and still need more? I did not.

I have threatened to clean the house with fire and flood on more than one occasion, and have had to content myself with (mostly) keeping the kitchen and bathrooms cleanish. Sigh.

Can't wait to see what your FIL brought you.

Shade and Sweetwater,

I'm blog hopping over here from Debbie's blog....

House cleaning and organizing NEVER gets finished. Once you think you are done something new is lurking to be organized and cleaned.

Good luck with the organizing. I have my own basement hell to deal with so I know what you're going through. :)
