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.

Doctor's orders.

I'll be taking it easy this weekend. I have orders from the doctor to take it easy. I do indeed have an infection. A serious enough one that she put me on two different antibiotics. She expects me to feel much better by Sunday. I'm looking forward to that.

In the meantime, I'll either be sitting on a chair directing the hubster as to where things go, or sorting through boxes that are at a height that don't bother me much. Either that, or I'll be working on some sewing projects I have in my mind.

I want to make some broomstick skirts for Scooter. I'd make some for Hopper, too, if she'd wear them. I may just have to make one for her anyway. Because maybe she'd actually wear one, if it was there for her to wear, but she wouldn't consider it, if it was offered and not around for her to see. I may just have to...

So no major plans for this weekend for me. It's really frustrating. There's so much that needs done and so much I want and need to do. And in spite of today being quite on the nonproductive side, I did finish the last coat of paint on the ribbon drawer.

Better than nothing, I suppose.


  1. I'm glad you went to the doctor and got some medications. A post surgery infection is nothing to mess with or ignore.

    You certainly did accomplish something... you painted, you blogged, you chatted. I bet you got your girls off to school and made sure they were fed today, too.

    So stop with the 'I didn't do anything.'


  2. You did way more than my daughter and I combined! And neither one of us has an infection!

    Feel better soon!!

  3. Yikes. No fun. I hope the antibiotics kick that infection quickly. Try to enjoy the break. You now have an excuse to relax.

  4. Broomstick skirt? What is that? You must post pictures! Feel Better!!!


Welcome to The Closet. Feel free to take off your coat, hang it up, if you can find the space, and sit a spell. I just love your visits. :)
