Was I an office hoarder?

Today my boxes from my old desk came in. Wow, I can't believe how much stuff I had. Am I a hoarder? I don't know. I'm sure I'm gonna end up tossing lots of things but I'm sure there will be things I forgot I had.I have to take a picture of the outsider art I had at my desk.

Today was a weird day, I'm still trying to balance watching the kids and working on my future. Luckily I got a lot done on my list and still had time to take the kids out to the back yard and later for a walk to the fruit store to pick up some cherries and watermelon--since my melons are still a month and a half away from maturity. About halfway through the day I got a really great note from a former co-worker who also found himself jobless with young kids and he cherished the time he got to spend with his little ones. I have found a series of kids concerts and I'm trying to find a play group. Its going to be Camp Papa (Camp Papa is a registered trademark of Foodiechickie ).

Hopefully getting out of the house a little more will allow me not to watch so many episodes of Dora the Explorer. Why isn't Bubble Guppies on streaming somewhere, seriously what am I paying $8 a month for Hulu.

Then our day went a little sour, as we went to visit my God-Mother in the hospital. The doctors don't know what is wrong with her, but she has just been deteriorating seemingly overnight. I hope she will be OK.

Bro you are a hoader, so why would your desk be any different? How old is your god mommy?

We aren't hoarders comparitevly. We got rid of a lot. It was ten years of stuff.

She's 87. She had carpel tunnel surgery. Seemingly minor but since then has been hospitalized twice in different locations and the doctors cannot figure out what is wrong with her. Quite sad as this woman apparently has never been ill in her life. Always looked awesome. And it was sad to see her last night.

I would say you are a hoarder if you haven't used something in more than 3 years and you keep things like that with the excuse of well I'll use it some day or it has value I can't throw it out. Don't get me wrong. I am forcing myself to break my hoarding ways. Now, you may not be tv show worthy, but I think you are just as much hoarders as I am. Don't be ashamed, many of us fall victim to it.

Not a hoarder.
We threw crap out just to move into this smaller space. Which I am still cleaning and fixing. I always try to be tidy but this is just the moving in cleaning process.
In fact always gave my kids baby clothes away after they outgrew them. This is not easy to do.
