Spent most of the day at the doctor's office with our youngest. Took her for blood tests, where she sat stoically and waited while they took 3 vials of blood. Then watched as she proudly showed her sisters that she'd had blood work done and didn't cry. :)
Finally got the paperwork with the losses we had when the basement flooded several months ago. I'll be working on getting things together for a claim now.
Went through several old gift cards last night. Called to check balances. Of course the were all empty. Except for the Applebee's card I found with a $20 balance! Now I just need a babysitter!
Met with the people who will be out tomorrow to buy the entertainment center. I'll start a bank account for the things we sell while we're de-hoarding. If we can keep from using it, it would be a nice reward for when we're finished with everything.
Feeling a bit like a deflated balloon tonight. Not because I didn't get as much done as I wanted today. Just because I'm exhausted.
Not too tired to do a triple back somersault into bed, though! Mustering up the strength now...
Compulsive hoarding is a mental disorder that is just beginning to be understood. As a hoarder, I have acquired things over the years with a specific purpose in mind at the time of the acquisition, used some of those items for their intended purposes, forgotten the goal for different objects, but now that I find that they have outlived their purpose in my life I am struggling to rid myself of those same things.
