Who Finished Who?

Well, the garage is clean. So is the office closet. I wanted to tackle the other closets and the filing cabinets but I have filled up the dumpster to capacity. So the rest will have to wait until another time. Still, I can look back and see the progress I have made and tell a real difference in the way these two parts of the house look. In a total of two intensive working days, I have thrown out enough stuff to fill up a big roll-off container.

Unfortunately, there were some brief side effects to all this.

About 2am this morning, I woke up with chest pains, shortness of breath, cold sweat, dizziness and nausea. The Missus roused the Gnu Herd in an air raid scramble and broke her personal best landspeed record rushing me to the emergency room. A bunch of checks later and we have ruled out heart attack. I'm home resting. That's the good news.

Bad news is, no one is sure what hit me or whether it was a one-timer or something that's coming back. We'll find out soon as I pursue answers. Wish me luck.

Hopefully it was just a panic attack in your sleep over how much you've tossed out. The decluttering thing can be an emotional upheaval.. so I hear. Hey! I'm comfortable with my clutter!

Let us know if there's anything we can do. In the meantime, relax! You've earned it!

Once they rule out heart attack everything else is gravy. We also vigorously support the throwing out of clutter. I'm not much of a pack rat and don't really understand it.

One time thing! One time thing! It's what I'm hoping for.
