Am I weird?
Is it just me, or does anyone else get a high off of cleaning stuff out and throwing or giving it away? I don't know what it is, but when I'm cleaning out a closet, or pantry, or whatever, my heart starts pounding and I get excited. I LOVE cleaning out closets, pantries, bedrooms, you name it, I like to clean it out. What gets me most excited it throwing or giving stuff away. I just love to see it leave my house! The fuller my trash can is, the happier I am. It doesn't have to be just my stuff either. I get the same way when I help others clean out. I love hearing about it, too! Danny has been spending one day a week helping his mom clean out their apartment and storage unit, and I love hearing about the stuff they've thrown away, sold, or given to charity. I sometimes get jealous that Danny gets to go over there and help his mom clean out! I know, I'm crazy, but I can't stand clutter! It drives me nuts!! I have a hard time going into Anna's room because of the amount of clutter that she has in there. When I'm in there, I seriously obsess over what needs to be cleaned out and thrown away! I just finished cleaning out 2 bookcases (I threw away 4 bags of papers, I have a box to be shredded, and another bag to sell to Half Price Books!) and I'm still on a high! I love looking at my clean bookshelves, and now I'm looking for something else to organize! I can't wait!
