Spoke too Soon

2008-06-23 08:07

Unfortunately, I keep forgetting that my family does things in the last few days of the actual event. I keep having to clean things the week of, when things (at least in my head) should be more relaxed. My dad’s at work, my mom took the week off (much to my dismay), my brother’s engagee, my brother and I are working on… cleaning chandeliers.

As much as this house is… pretty, I guess… This house is awfully gaudy. I hate it, we uncovered so much crap when we were cleaning the porch, and it just doesn’t make sense to me why we have so much stuff and use it just once.

It’s like how the US, as far as I can tell, probably has the highest amount of diet pill advertising. And storage units, the kind where you put all the crap you never use into some commercial BIN and pay for the space monthly, even though you COULD just donate all the crap to people who actually would use it.

Have we consumed so much we need to buy more consumer products and services to help us reduce our amount of shit?

I know this question has been asked a million times. It’s still frustrating.
