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.

Bug bites.

I think I've been bitten by a stomach bug. I have not felt well for the last couple of days. I'm hoping that sleep will help, so I'm going to go to be going to bed really early tonight.

I haven't made near the progress I would like to make in the last couple of days, but I understand there will be days like this. It happens, because life happens.

I was able to get the second coat of paint on the table tops today. I was going to yesterday, but it was too windy to paint. I think they'll need a third coat of paint to make sure everything is nice and even, but I'm thrilled with how nice they're going to look. They look so much better in a solid bright white than they did with what looked like placemats painted on them. They'd have been great with a checkerboard pattern on them, and I suppose I could still do that around the edges, but I don't want to take the time right now. Maybe someday. In the meantime, I'm happy with them being white. I'll probably put the last coat on them Thursday and give them a few extra hours to dry thoroughly between now and then.

Right now, I'm just going to go to bed. Maybe if I get enough sleep tonight, I'll feel more capable tomorrow.


  1. Ugh. I'm sorry you're sick! Sleep helps everything. I'm going to try to get to sleep before 10 tonight.

  2. Oh dear! you can't catch a break on these bugs lately . Get some rest girl!

  3. Better worry about taking care of YOU! The tables can wait until you're better.

  4. Feel better, those damn stomach bugs have been rampant around here. -J
