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.

Busy. Busy.

We've been busy today. We went through the last little bit of stuff in the workout room that was still in boxes. We only kept about half of what was left, and the rest went in the trash. That was a nice little surprise. It's such a relief when we can get rid of stuff as easily as we did today. 

We somehow managed to remember how to set up the TV. I'm amazed that we got it together on the first try, but I'm thrilled, too. It's one of those little 13'' TVs that has a DVD player in it. We had to hook it up to a VCR, so we could play either type of video in there while we're on the treadmill, if we want to watch something, and then we had to attach it to a converter box and an antenna, so we could get something on the TV itself, if we don't want to watch a video. All of it is sitting atop the small entertainment center we took down there a few weeks ago. The height of the screen is absolutely perfect. We won't be straining our necks in order to see the screen when we're on the treadmill. 

It is just all coming together so well. Yay! :)


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. :)
