It's ALL Trash

Do you ever look around your house and just think "it's all trash"?  All of it.  Every single thing you see is trash.  That's how I felt today.  I wanted someone to come park a house-sized dumpster in my driveway so I could just throw everything away.  I'm sure I should have some desire to recycle.  But in this case, I just don't.  I just want it all to go away.  I want The Bread Winner's garage to not be a mess.  I want all of the crap in my whole house to just get thrown away.  Furniture included.  I want to just live in a hut somewhere (except I would still want plumbing - I couldn't stand not having a toilet and sink).  Otherwise I would be good with having almost nothing.

Don't get me wrong.  I love my computer (how would I survive without email), my cell phone (thanks BBM), my new bread machine (mmmm... bread), my mp3 player (love that 80's music), my electric blanket (but I want a tropical place for my hut so I could probably live without the electric blanket), my camera (taking pics of my babies is crucial), my car (but again tropical so walking is totally doable) etc.  But sometimes I just want to throw it all away and have nothing so I don't have to worry about anything.

Now, I'm not stressed right now or anything.  Really, I'm not.  I just have those moments where it seems like there is just TOO MUCH STUFF.  Today was just one of those days.  Too much stuff.

But on a side note, Evil 1 and Evil 2 decided to do their part in helping to get rid of all the stuff and decided to eat a dog bed today.  Thanks so much.  I can't wait to clean up all the stuffing they spread all over the backyard (it's dark right now or I would be out there cleaning it up right now).  I really think that there should be some sort of doggie jail that I could send them to.  That would just make me feel better.

In regards to the "stuff" though... I did manage to make a trip to the dump.  But our little trailer is just so little.  It didn't feel as good as a HUGE dumpster would.  I know, we Americans just throw everything away with no regard to the environment.  I just can't care about the environment when it comes to purging my house of all the crap that 10 years of marriage has accumulated.  It just seems like downsizing would be good.

Alright, enough complaining.  I know I'm lucky to have a good life.  Really I do understand that.


  1. Doesn't purging "stuff" feel good? I love it! Yet, it always seems no matter how much I purge there is always too much. I choose to blame it on the toys.

  2. I blame The Bread Winner with the garage full of crap! Oh and the toys. But mostly the garage!
