Trash vs Treasure
Last night Josh and I tackled the daunting task of cleaning out our guestroom/storage room. It was a large task and with Josh's organization tactics, there was sure to be some bickering.
For instance, he wanted to throw away all my stuff.
When he came across all the left over Princess Party and Carnival Party stuff.
"This is all garbage." He announced.
"Um, no its not!" I said.
"We are never going to use this stuff again. " He argued, like our girls will never have another birthday again.
"I am not throwing away UN-opened table cloths, napkins, and party favors!" I debated.
He stated that we have too much junk and we need to get rid of everything we don't use or need.
However, strangely, he only wanted to throw away my things.
I came across his old paintball gun.
I didn't really want to throw it away, however I wanted to prove a point. And I did. :)
"Well this is garbage." I declared.
"No, no that is not garbage. I'm going to use that!" He cried.
In the 6 years Josh and I have been together, not once has he used that thing. And when I told him that he claimed that he has been 'planning' on using it.
Next when I came across an old CD case from high school full of 90's hits. I announced again that it was garbage, because like HE said we need to get rid of everything we don't use or need.
"Oh no! That is not trash! I have been looking for those! " He argued, referring to his case of Cd's filled with Jewel, Matchbox 20, Aqua, and various other 'timeless' classics.
Laughing, I stated that he has not listened to any of those Cd's in 6 years and I am very sure that he wouldn't miss them.
Sensing my triumph, I gave in..
Amazingly after that he left my stuff alone and we finished cleaning our guestroom dispute-free. :)
