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.

Tension, unhand me!

Middle daughter had a gigantic meltdown at 5:30 this morning while getting ready for school. The tension put the muscles in my neck and shoulders into gargantuan knots, and I've yet to be able to untie them.

I was able to get quite a bit accomplished in the kitchen today in spite of things, but I think I'm taking the entire evening off. I'll be doing homework...I'll be reading Buried in Treasures, but I'm done with anything physical. I'll be sitting with two heating pads set on high for awhile, and then I'll be going to bed early.

Hoping I can finish the kitchen tomorrow. . .


  1. Oh my!! I'm sorry!! Take care of you!

  2. Hope you get unknotted soon.

    come over and help me???

  3. feel better soon. I am that way I carry all my stress in my neck and shouleders. Funny one time I could barely turn my head , and hubby and I had a spat . Halfway through my tantrum I suddenly realised my neck felt better! The joke around here for a while was "honey ,I might need to yell at you my neck is sore"
