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.

Yay! Not so Yay. Yay again! So far from yay I can't think straight!

So very thankful. My husband cleared the drain behind the washing machine, so I can do laundry without having to stand in the laundry room over the washing machine all day. And he spared my neck and shoulders. :)

It's been a very gloomy day around here. Trying hard to shake it off. I don't do well with overcast skies. I need the sunshine!

Got the CD of pictures from the restoration company in the mail today. That's good. I'll be able to get all the claims finished soon. I was hoping I'd get the claims finished by Monday. Realistically, that's not going to happen. I can't concentrate worth a darn with the kids around. Something about, "Mom. Mom. Mom. Um. Dad. Daddy. Dad. Mom. Mommy?" with us saying "What? or What, honey?" between each utterance does something to the concentration. So I'll work on it when they're in school.

Just heard about how Seth MacFarlane used Trig Palin's Down Syndrome to get under the skin of his mom, Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska. I think it's beyond disgusting to use a special needs child to get at someone whose political views differ from your own. I don't care WHAT your political views are. It's WRONG! It's DISGUSTING!

I've never really cared for Family Guy much in the first place. It's just not my style. But my husband finds it humorous and used to watch it fairly often. He's no longer a fan, either. Before, MacFarlane at least went after those who could somehow defend themselves against his attacks. Does he really need a laugh so badly that he attacks the defenseless?

How incredibly sad that he's such a small person.


  1. I don't like that show anyway. Too over the top for me.

    And of course now that I know an asshole is in charge, I will never bother watching it.


  2. I'm happy your hubby was able to help with the washing machine!! As for Family Guy, I don't watch it, but really that guy is a huge dirt bag!!

  3. the adult cartoons are quite strange at best ,and hugely inappropriate ,Idon't care ofr any of them.Glad you got the washer mended

  4. I need to do the laundry. And I think some things about Family Guy are funny, but meh. I don't care.

  5. I'm doing the laundry today too. It's gloomy outside here too.
