My Husband is a Closeted Hoarder
Now before I asked him to set it aside, I had snooped through it to see what it was. I noticed an old tax return from 2000. 12 years old.
I mention this and he says again shouldn't it be saved. "Don't make me call my dad." was my response. It helps to have a retired IRS employee in the family. He groans and says fine and then loads a ton of papers, filling a laundry basket.
Before my shredder over-heated and subsequently died (not permanently, it's a temporal death :) I noticed that Hubby's been harboring investment information from when I was in high school!!! In case you're curious, Hubby is exactly 2 years, 2 months, and 6 days my senior (and throw in a few hours). So it's really old.
Also rather annoying is the staples. Some stuff is quadruple stapled together. For the love of all that's holy, use a paper clip. It saves your fingers.
Speaking of old Hubby turns another year older May 11th. And if you aren't sure what to buy him, might I suggest a gift card for the Wii. You can also buy them at Target and Walmart.
I already order my present for him (by request) along with some light and faucet extenders for HB. I'm working a semi-Montessouri approach at home to which I explain later.
And in other news bought some used chairs for the outside because we have rotten luck with chairs breaking all the time. One that we just bought broke a minute ago. Sigh. For the love of all that's holy, is there a patron saint of furniture because we need to have a chat if there is.
