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.

"Voice sounds a little squeaky."

I don't feel like posting tonight. I'm just exhausted. However, posting every day reminds me (from the title of my blog alone) what I'm doing this for. So..I'm posting.

Took the kids to the doctor today. Middle daughter has an ear infection. Youngest daughter has a sinus infection and gunky ears. Antibiotics for both, and nebulizers for the youngest, because "she's not moving air well". She hasn't been coughing like her sister. She's mostly just been clearing her throat. She's not in distress. That's good. She was smiling all day, and I fully expect her to be back in school in a day or two.

I went in, too. I've got a sinus infection and laryngitis. The nurse actually wrote in my chart that my "voice sounds a little squeaky." I thought that was funny. I brought my script for antibiotics home with me without filling it. I figured I'd give it a couple of days, and if I'm not any better, I'll fill the prescription.

Sorta bummed I didn't finish the insurance stuff today, but we were gone most of the day, and when we got home there was dinner, and nebulizer treatments, and going to the store for groceries. So, I'll be finishing up tomorrow.

In the meantime, I'm going to be visiting my good friend, Pillow, very shortly!

I've earned some alone time with her, I think.


  1. Hmmm, squeaky isn't exactly the technical term. Maybe she meant tight? Or pitchy? (I learned those terms, and now I'm forgetting them. Dangit!)

  2. That's not fun, squeaky voices are funny though!
