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.

I don't know, if I'm ready for tomorrow!

The forecasted high is 100 to 105° tomorrow. Blech! I'm so hoping that the A/Cs can handle staying on, if I set them at 77° when it gets to the heat of the day. We set them on 80° before we left the house today, and they were still working when we got home. We couldn't breathe, because the house was so stifling, but at least they didn't kick the breaker. Tomorrow will be the real test. If we can hold out until next week, it will only be in the 50s and 60s. We'll take it!

I plan on working in the basement tomorrow, since it will be cooler than upstairs. I'll work on laundry and painting furniture and finishing up some of the trim work that Bugster didn't get to when she worked on it awhile back. I have plenty to do down there, and it looks like the heat will force me to get to it whether I feel like it or not.

Had a wonderful time with my husband today. It was nice to have some alone time with him and to get away for a bit. And it was so nice getting to see the girls when we got back home. They really missed us and were ready to come home, and we really missed them. Now that we're all back under the same roof things seem right.

Got the tour of the freshly decorated and unpacked house at Bugster's tonight. She's (they've) done such a good job. It's just really cute, cozy and homey. It was fun getting to visit for the little bit we were there before we had to get the girls home, and they are currently snuggled down in yummy smelling bedding that had hung on the clothesline to dry.

I'm off to spend some more quality time with my guy. . . another thing that just seems right.


  1. Oh I just hate the heat. ::Sending cooling thoughts your way:::

    Having alone time with the hubby is always one of the high points in my life, no matter when it occurs.


  2. Goodness - if it weren't for the chilly, rainy few days we've been having here, I'd feel sympathetic, but as it is, I'm jealous. I want my summer back! (Not that I want THAT much summer - 100 degrees? I getting stuffy just thinking about it.)

  3. Sounds like a nice way to spend the day. Hope things stay cool for you

  4. The weather is pretty yucky right now, isn't it? It was in the mid-90's here before noon. Ugh.
    We're going to sit on the cool wood floor and clean toys this afternoon. We spent the morning sitting on the floor, wiping down the front of the stove. It takes me 2 minutes to do it, but it took well over an hour to repeat "top to bottom" in a sing-song voice at least 30 times until it clicked in the 4YO brain. Still totally worth it. She cleaned the front of the dishwasher next and did a pretty good job all by herself.
    I'd like to say I'm brave enough to go clean in the nice, cool basement, but there are somethings even 100+ heat can't make me do :D

  5. Please send your heatwave over here! Am organizing an African party for over 400 people on Friday, and I want sunshine cos its all taking place outside! Send those rays of sunshine to France ok????

  6. Wow! That's hot! Good Luck!!
