I joined an Ikebana Sunday Workshop last Sunday. These works were arranged by a professor.


Since I have been exhausted to be involved with my son, I decided to have my own room. We don't have many rooms, but there is a storage room which has so many cardboard boxes including for appliances' ones. I have thrown away many things recently in that room, and I want to have a table there. It has been taking a long time to make an enough space, so, I ordered a table today. It will be delivered in a few weeks. I must make a space before delivering.
The most problem is my husband's so many books. He can't throw them away. Even some of them have not been read at all. Will I throw some away secretly? Maybe he forgets some of them.




P.S.

Since it has been exhausting dealing with my son, I decided to have my own room, one where I may go for quiet and solitude so I may recharge. We don't have many rooms, but there is a storage room which is filled with cardboard boxes, even ones from our appliances. I have thrown away many things from this room recently, as I want to have room for a table in there. It has been taking a long time to make enough space, so, I ordered a table today in order to force myself to finish before it arrives. It will be delivered in a few weeks. I must make space for it before it is delivered.

The biggest problem is that my husband has so many books stored in the room. He can't throw them away, even though most of them have already been read, while the others most probably won't be read at all. Should I secretly throw some away? Perhaps he has forgotten about many of them.

Hi Shiroi Tora.

Thank you so much for the corrections.
Actually, I was surprised to see the correction 'it has been exhausting' instead of 'I have been exhausted'.

Sakae's Implied Question:

My Reply:

To be exhausted is to be depleted. It means to have no more. To be in a constant state of depletion without reprieve in this instance would be a hyperbolic statement since you regain energy between bouts with your son. By saying it has been exhausting correctly implies that there have been numerous bouts of frustration which have temporarily depleted your energy and patience, whereupon you regain energy, only to have it depleted time and time again. This correctly depicts your situation as being tried over and over, instead of it being one long marathon of frustration without reprieve.
