Big blowout over something minor

Well, minor to me anyway...not to gs. I almost had to start packing!
This is how it all started: Wed. eve. is garbage night. I was home alone. It is generally his job to do the garbage but I help out by gathering all the little trash in each room and just setting it by the doorway to the garage where the trash cans are. And then he takes it all to the curb. But only when he's good & ready to.
Thus the problem. He waits til really late to do this and I can't stand this! I want it taken care of fairly early so the big garage door can be shut and I don't have to worry about going to sleep w/the house wide open like that. Gs tends to forget things and I know this from having raised him all these yrs!!!
So when he got home from the ferry commute, I told him that I had gone into "their" rm to check the waste basket. It was not full so I walked right back out. "you went into my rm when I wasn't there?" Well, yes says I...how else would I have known your basket didn't need emptying? And then a full scale arguement escalated from there about me not respecting his privacy and ended up w/him giving me 30 days notice. Wife and baby were not home yet but she was on her way. She doesn't say anything about it to me when she walks in but she already knows (cell ph)They then proceed to go into the office and look for rentals online.
I'm still fuming about the way he reacted to my "helpful actions" haha, but then start thinking, well I'm gonna need a place to move to also so I went on MY computer to see what was available. OMG! The prices are waay out there! How can this young family even consider this? So, knowing that, I stopped looking and waited for my apology. It never came. Went to bed. Oh yeah, and it was ME who took out the garbage that night.
It's usually me who takes T to the ferry in the morning, but not that following morn. When wife & baby return I ask her if I should really give my sis a 30-day notice? I had also told T that I didn't think it was fair to my sis since I had already told her that we would be moving in one yr from now so they could start planning what to do w/this house. They are getting ready to go back to AZ in Oct. and this could become a major problem for them. But of course, that wasn't T's worry. He has his pride to think about.
So how did this end? I'm not sure but wife told me that even tho she didn't want to move twice (meaning now and again when they know what college accepts him)...that she backs him 100% in whatever he wants to do. I'm pretty sure she has talked him into his senses but he still hasn't retracted his notice to me and that means I'm going to have to ask him sooner or later. He's talking to me like nothing had even happened but wife told me that he wants to talk to me when nobody is mad. I'm not waiting past this weekend cuz sis w/be heading back to DC come Monday. (her job)
Dang it, I let my tea get cold!!!!! C :)
