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.

Laundry, hooks and court dates. Oh my!

Today was a good day. It feels good to be doing something again. It's like the fog has lifted in my brain, and I'm back to working on dehoarding and being productive once more. 

I was able to get 6 loads of laundry done today, and I got one more thing crossed off the list I made the other day. I hung up a set of hooks in the workout room in order to hang the packs Hubster uses when he runs. I can't believe how much better it looks, and it feel so good to know they have a permanent home, and we'll be able to find them when we need them. We may hang another set tomorrow, so he can hang some of his running clothes when he gets home from a run. It will be nice to have an actual place for them, too.

I am happy to announce that the spam filter is working once again on my blog. Hopefully, it will continue working, and I won't have to put the word verification back on anytime soon. 

And the best news of all? The attorney called, and we finally have a court date for mid-May to finalize guardianship for the girls. 

It will be so nice to be done once and for all.

  3. Here's wishing some sunshine your way to keep that brain fog at bay! You ARE doing great, and even crossing off one item on your list is a.w.e.s.o.m.e!!! :D

    I too have a need for racks and hooks to hold certain items. They make such a positive difference. And Yay You! For getting all that laundry done, that feels good. Laundry is one of my least favorite chores, lol!

    Good job, girl! And amazing work with your girls, btw! I'm excited for you that you nailed down a court date! Yesss!

  4. Does it count if all my laundry is clean? The hangy-up stuff hangied up? We don't have to talk about the baskets of socks and underwear and towels that are in front of the dryer, right?
