I try to be a bit of a minimalist. After years of living with too much clutter, I worked hard a couple years ago to get rid of everything and learned to live with the bare essentials. My house is small but spacious because we don't have too much furniture. We have(had) no knick-knacks and very little things just sitting around. If I don't keep on top of things, my beautiful empty house gets piles of paper on surfaces, closets get messy, etc. I've been kinda lazy about things since my severe morning sickness a few weeks ago and haven't fully gotten back into the swing of things.

So today I had an absolute meltdown on dh. I noticed his side of the closet was filled with papers and stuff he's collected over the past few months. So I started ranting and raving. Then I had an out-of-mind-and-body experience and started raiding the house. DUMPING whatever wasn't in it's "place" in the center of the room and telling him I'd throw anything away that he didn't neaten up. Then I started crying and that lead to sobbing and more throwing stuff in the pile and more crying. I even chucked all his camping gear that was in the baby's closet the front door! Poor dh didn't know whether to laugh, yell at me or hug me. He ended up hugging me and telling me it'd be alright and then for the past couple hours he's been quietly sorting through the huge pile.

And now I feel like crap. Cause he's so good to me and patient. And why the heck did I freak out like that?? It's just stuff. Yet it made me hyperventilate and go nutso.

I need to be institutionalized I think.

At least dh gave you a hug and got stuck into it, and recognised you were not yourself!! I'm sure it wasn't funny at the time but it did make me smile thinking of your dh's face!!

Thanks to Meganpixel for my beautiful siggie!

yeah it happens. and unfortunately our SO's suffer. Most men dont know what to do, luckily your DH is doing the right thing (by not leaving the pile there)

My hubbie is a piler too...it's horrible and drives me crazy on a daily basis. Every free surface is like a magical place where he can dump JUNK. The walk in closet is IMPOSSIBLE to walk into and it's a struggle for me to get to my piddly little area that my clothes are in. Every time I clean it out, he sees it as an opportunity to load even MORE crap into it.

And forget the garage. I spent THREE days cleaning it once and made a huge walkway in the middle and it is now cluttered to heck again.

I feel your pain and your frustration and you DO NOT need to be institutionalized. Instead you should be given a medal of honor for having to deal with it on a daily basis and not lose your mind.
