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'm doing well. The computer? Notsomuch.

I decided to write my blog early today, because I've got to take the computer apart. Well. Sort of. I'll be busy reformatting the hard drive, so we hopefully won't have any more problems with the computer.

Other than being quite sleepy, I'm feeling really good today, which is a relief. I was afraid I'd be waylayed by the surgery more than I think I will be. This is good news.

Other good news that came in the mail the other day: my new hand held vacuum cleaner I got for the stairs. Even though I'd vacuumed the stairs with the attachments on my upright the other day, (after I cleaned it all out with the air hose), I was shocked at how much came out of the carpet on the stairs when I used my Eureka. It's got a powerful little motor. Seems to be of much higher quality than the others I looked at. I'm just thrilled with it.

And just so you know, I'm not reviewing this for any other reason than I believe in letting others know when I find something of quality for a decent price. I'm not getting anything for it. I bought it, because my poor stairs needed serious help, and I can only do so much with the upright. This little thing is perfect!

I'm hoping to have the reformatting done on the computer before long, so I can be back to blogging tonight or tomorrow.

Hope to see you then!


  1. And let's not forget Friday night chat... that has to be pretty high on your list of priorities...right??

  2. Of course chatting is high priority! What else is there?

    So glad you are feeling good today!

  3. Chattin' in at the top of my list! I found out it was not a good thing for me to have a bagless vacuum. I now can see how much I vacuum up every day...soooo not good for a clean freak like me.

    Have a terrifically blessed day sweetie and a great weekend!!!

  4. I am so glad we only have carpet in the bedrooms. I hate when my floors are dirty!

  5. Well, I guess we'll know pretty soon how well that re-formatting worked.
