Well, this is weird. The Husband is a confirmed member of the Society For Putting Things On Top Of Other Things. Yet before he left town for six weeks, he managed to clear off several of the horizontal surfaces that are regularly littered with 6-10 inch high piles of his…belongings. Note my very polite use of something besides a four-letter word there.
For the first time in many months I can dust. And my soul is at peace as I can look around in my own bedroom and not be assailed with mountains of papers, receipts, notes, and miscellaneous detritus.
Apparently there are compensations.
