There is something about that show!

I have become a huge fan of the show, Hoarders on A&E. There is something about it. Or it could be with enough time, I could be some of the people on that show. My room here at the Brookwood could give me a entry for the show. So I used the last two days to start the cleaning process. Plus, I don't want the manager to say something to me. It is more of things than being dirty. I keep my dirty clothes in the laundry basket under the bathroom sink in the bathroom.

I took some pictures to show the before. It will be awhile before the after pictures are posted because it will take awhile to go through the containers. But I am working at it.

My mom meets with the orthopedic surgeon Monday to discuss her arm. I feel guilty for not being able to be there for her. And she understands. Once a date for her surgery is decided, I'll figure out how much time I spend with her after the surgery.

I am watching the Super Bowl. Honestly, it's more for the commercials than the games. Football is a foreign language for me. I know who Peyton Manning and Reggie Bush are but I have not a clue what's goes on on the field.

I cleaned a lot yesterday. Today, I went to Hell on earth or as others call it Wal-Mart. I went to the Dollar Tree and found H&M underwear for a $1 a piece. I found three pairs. Cool undies for $3.

Daily Dose

1. Chips, queso dip and a Sunday newspaper.

2. Find H&M underwear at the Dollar Tree.

3. Spending most of Sunday watching a Hoarders Marathon. After a looooong week, it's nice to just veg.


  1. Wow, look at all that stuff. If you're anything like me, it's totally organized in your mind, even if it appears messy ;)
    I'm not even watching the Super Bowl commercials! Ha! I'm a bad American.
    I agree that Wal-Mart is Hell on Earth!!
    Hope your mom's ok!

  2. My wife watches Hoarders, and I sometimes see the episodes, too, but I don't like it. It bothers me because my wife doesn't understand the attachment that we have with our possessions, and her comments are upsetting. Also, the so-called therapists are impatient and combative, which is the wrong approach to dealing with hoarders.

    Good luck with the room makeovers. And thanks for commenting on my cat photo!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! Your blog looks great! I'm so glad to see that you've chosen to commit to recovery! From someone who has been there (I was diagnosed 7 years ago and can honestly say I'm fully recovered) and recovery is totally worth it!
