I was gone almost all day yesterday (4/28) and I’ll be busy for the next few as well. I could, tonight, if I didn’t do anything else, file 500+ pieces, and I’d catch up with April’s goal before 5/1. But I’m not going to.
I have a high-stress day tomorrow and the stress will continue through Weds. I have a tax appt. Thurs, which means Weds. night will be spent gathering data, no time for filing, except as related to taxes. So, the earliest I can really do this without being nutty is Thursday 5/3. I’ll do it then.
De-hoarding the house is stressful enough without layering it on top of other high-stress tasks. I can only do the de-hoarding because I’m world-class stubborn. Because I play it as a “game.” Because I refuse to live like my abuser did any longer. Because my husband and I really need a clean home.
I still have all those reasons I got here. If you think this is easy, then you’re not paying attention. I am not going to make a public circus of how and why I got here. This is NOT one of the hoarders shows. I cannot imagine letting anyone do that to me. I can’t imagine letting things go so much they’re a health hazard either, but. . . .
I had a professional organizer, years ago now, be really friendly to me, for a while. I thought she was my friend. She had in mind an early version of the Hoarder show. I didn’t even have to think about it; I just said “No.” and gee, guess what? She wasn’t friendly any more. Not a nice human being. I’m REALLY glad I didn’t let that person into my house!
