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.

Just rambling.

Never heard back from the school today to get the official changes in our youngest's IEP. I'll be calling again tomorrow, if I don't hear anything by 2 or so. Talked a little to the teacher about the issue, and wouldn't you know it, but the district's phone system went down in the middle of our call.

I've been working on listing the losses for the insurance claim today. It's coming along. Not necessarily quickly, but I should be done no later than Friday. That is, if I can find a notebook that I wrote things in at the time we were doing an inventory of the losses. Since I already called the school to take care of things, and I'm only waiting for a return call, the notebook is my top priority for tomorrow.

On a good note, I found a map book I'd been looking for tonight while looking for the notebook. I'd promised it to a friend for her little one who has a thing for maps. It will go in the box of stuff I'm putting aside for her. One less thing I have to think about.

I am hoping that I haven't offended anyone. I realized tonight that I have no idea what I'm supposed to do, if someone tells me they're giving me a blogger award. It's not that I don't appreciate them thinking of me. I'm just blog etiquette illiterate.

No more time to think on any of this stuff tonight. Morning comes entirely too early for me. It's time I get to bed!


  1. Blog awards are fun ,but not everyone posts and passes them on .I wouldn't worry about it

  2. I've been blogging for over a year and still don't know proper blogging "etiquette" I just like to read about other people and hope that people want to read about me. Good luck paper hunting, doesn't sound like much fun...

  3. Ha ha! When you wake up you can come over to my blog and pick up your award.
