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.

Loopy thankfulness.

Everything went fine today with my outpatient surgery. Thanks to those of you who emailed me and for the thoughts and prayers of everyone else. A dear friend took care of supper for us and had a tasty casserole, homemade bread, and homemade pie with fresh whipping cream waiting for us when we got back.

I'm sort of loopy tonight. The pain meds do that to me. I will probably be a bit loopy tomorrow, too. Hubby took the day off tomorrow to be with me and to take care of things while I'm out of commission. I'm so very thankful for him. And equally thankful for Bugster who stayed with the girls while I was in the hospital today. It's easier to relax when you know things are being taken care of at home....especially to know the girls are comfortable and safe.

As far as the dehoarding goes, I arranged for my friend to take two large bags of dress up dresses when she came over with the food. So I even made a little progress today. I'll take it where I can get it.

Right now...I'm going to take my rest where I can get it, which will be in my big comfy bed. I don't know why they can't make a comfortable hospital bed, but they sure don't seem to have that one figured out yet.


  1. I think hospital beds were invented as just one more way to torture patients. Think about it. It makes sense.

    And no matter how loopy you are, don't the mattresses on those hospital beds make your butt hurt?

    Glad you're home and being taken care of.

  2. I'm glad everything went well today - I was thinking of you all day. (I know, and I just know you through here.)

  3. If hosptial beds were comfortable, people would be finding all sorts of ways to get admitted and stay a good long time. I mean come on you get waited on hand and foot, don't have to clean anything, get free cable, and room service. LOL.
    Glad it went smoothly. Hopefully recovery will be quick. I'm glad there are people taking care of your family's needs!

  4. Hope you're feeling exceptionally good today!


  5. Take your time to heal. Glad it went well
