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.

Well laid plans and all that.

Yeah. So. I wasn't as productive Saturday as I was hoping to be. I needed help with making the cubby for above the stove and refrigerator, but hubby couldn't help. He ended up in pain from an abscessed tooth. Was on pain medications all day, but they only took the edge off. And it's really hard to work under such circumstances. You know? So spent some time with the family hanging out.

We finished using up all the ketchup packets. It's nice that the only ketchup in the fridge is now in a bottle.

And we sold the shower enclosure. The guy came and picked it up. Yay! We can add $110 to that found money I talked about awhile back. It's motivational to see it adding up!

We're sort of looking into infrared saunas. The heat is supposed to go deeper into your body than a conventional heating pad. It seems like some days all I do is have my heating pad set to high. Anyone have any experience with them? I'd love opinions from people who have personally used them!

Hanging out with the family tomorrow again. It should be fun. Hoping that I can really get back to things on Monday.


  1. I have no experience with those things.... But I'm glad you got rid of some stuff!

  2. Enjoy a day of rest ! you earned it. Hope hubby's tooth gets treated soon

  3. You are an inspiration to me.

    Congrats on the $110.00!


  4. I can't believe I underpaid myself in the post! We actually got $115 for the shower enclosure, not $110. Every penny adds up, right? ;o)
