When I started this blog, I had started keeping track of the things I'd gotten rid of over in the right side bar. I decided a couple of weeks ago to take it down. I found that I was feeling guilty, if I forgot to write something down, and there were times I just couldn't keep up, because I was getting rid of so much. Taking it away makes it easier for me to concentrate on things.
I did leave the shredables count up, but I'm not sure, if it will stay. I just thought it might be interesting to know how many bags of paperwork I had gotten rid of over the course of the dehoarding. I know that paperwork has been the bane of my existence. I can never seem to rid my life of excess paperwork strewn around. To have a mental picture of how much I've gotten rid of might be helpful, so I might just keep it after all.
Everyone is sick around here with a heavy duty cold. So we're taking advantage of our beds and getting plenty of rest. Hopefully, with enough rest and fluids we'll get over this quickly. Hopefully.
I spoke with the teacher this morning about the sunburn. He said that it was windburn. That everyone who went to the track meet ended up with it. I didn't argue with him. I know that the teachers and aides were going to be spoken to about the sunscreen issue today. I'll be talking to someone to get an update about it tomorrow. I figured I could wait until then. We want their IEPs amended to include sunscreen application by an adult anytime they will be outside for more than 15 minutes. I don't think that's unreasonable.
In the meantime, I did take pictures of her little face. She's miserable. Between the coughing and the sunburn, she's just feeling punky. Hopefully a couple more days of good solid rest will help.
Speaking of rest...I need mine, too. Off to bed.
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.
