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.

That'll be the day. Will this be the week?

Not going to beat myself up. Friend's orders. But I am a bit discouraged that I'm going to be out of commission a bit longer than I expected. I'm feeling better overall. Just hurting. I pretty sure the pain will go away once I stop taking the medicine I am taking for the infection. I just have to make it through the next week.

So I'm doing 'homework' in the form of watching hoarding shows and pulling threads for broomstick skirts while I'm at it.

Considering I have to take things so easy the next few days, I'm hoping that I can try to get some laundry done. I still haven't gotten everything finished from all the laundry that I took out of Hopper's room a couple weeks ago. In fact, I found several other loads in her room the other day. Once again, I have probably 30 loads or more to get caught up on.

Maybe this is the week I get caught up on it.


  1. Slow and steady my friend , you will be much better for taking the time now and resting .

  2. Laundry is heavy! STOP!

    Feel better soon!

  3. I couldn't lift laundry baskets after I had the baby, my doc said they get too heavy!! So be careful!!
