It's on A&E here.
Well, I hate to say it but I understand these people more than I'd like. I am so glad we're getting rid of lots of stuff. The possibilities are opening up. I still feel overwhelmed w/ the condition of this house but things have changed a lot in just a month. I feel I have to do this because I am afraid of being older and ill and unable. Dh's accident really turned life upside down but doesn't have to define the rest of our lives totally. I have encountered a lot less resistance about needing to keep things than I thought we would. They don't necessarily have the focus I do but no one is crying over dumping stuff.
I definately dread cleaning out DD's room though. She feels the most personally attached to her stuff and her room. Scary cluttered. Can't even go there yet.
I still want to try to pear down to basics but i figure that will take a couple of go rounds. We wouldn't want to overwhelm our S.A. LOL.?
UGH...just checked and we don't seem to get it. I will have to continue to watch for it though as you just never know. :)
I was very sympathetic to the guy who said he couldn't start because his perfectionism would make him have to do it exactly right, and he knew he couldn't. When I go into deep cleaning mode, I get very OC about it.
71 things packed up and ready to go out the door in the morning.
Madhen-At least you can if you want. I use a lot of rubberbands and plastic bags but people just disorganize everything anyway. Went DH helped me get all the cleaning supplies out of the work room he just grabbed. I got upset because they were all organized by rows of kinds (dish soap,polish,etc.). I didin't think to say anything because it would be obvious to me. So I had to sort them. More time wasted. So yeah I am OC about cleaning but I have realized this crowd needs less stuff around too. They are disorganizers not organizers.
FW, I'm not much of a team player, probably why I live alone. ;) I realize the need to set my own values and procedures aside somewhat when I'm trying to have a relationship (work or otherwise), but it really grates on me to do so. My mother says it is because I'm selfish, and she is probably right!!
I can't remember if I posted this, but I don't think so - flung one box of paper coffee filters. Gave them to a friend of mine who still uses the antiquated paper coffee filter system. ;)
Madhen-theres a reason my car comes w/ headlights instead of laser beams. KWIM. I try and be patient w/ people but I am not. My mother is always calling people selfish too. She is a martyr and has anger issues because of it in my opinion. (which i keep to myself because I have a good relationship w/ her). It is so difficult to keep a good balance.
2 old office chairs
not very focused today. Tired. Luckily DH is in the work room flinging away!! 3 garbage bags so far. He's scrubbing the floor as we have had back ups. I need to go thru the paint.Some must be 15 years old. That will cost me but I don't care. I did take the garbage to the curb. I love pickup day. The last bed goes tomorrow too. Yeah.!!
You must feel so free FW! That is how I feel anyway when I get into the flinging mode. Good for you. Think of how nice and clean and organized is when everything is done. Get some rest ... you deserve it! :)
Went to MA. Picked up 12 bookcases and 1 load of books. 13 deducted from my total :eek:
flea market today flung:
a bunch of small kids toys
16 unopened packs of playing cards LOL
a emergency radio thing
an electric kinara
and a bunch of other things i seriously cant remember but am glad are gone LMAO
i also helped myself to a 3 pieces of jewelry my cousin tried to put on the table to sell
DebC-I am crabby. Ask my family, or anyone who saw me today. LOL I am never satified w/ myself and the more I do the more I realize the situation. I will level out. I just get frustrated because the rest of the family hides instead of helps so i am constantly seeking. If I had about $5000. to throw at repairs and replace things would be better too. Patience.
-DS baby hockey outfit (ouch)
-2 shop lights but replaced w/ 2 new ones
-a ton of food from the refridge (far from clean)
Just in a mood today. Sundays are hard for me. We need a new dryer,dishwasher,furnace,hot water heater, and washing machine. Blah.
Ok, the things I"m missing! I have NO idea what show you're talking about. One of the things we flung over a year ago was our TV as we had only turned it on once in 2 years. So what is the show and WHAT are you guys talking about?
It sounds a bit like a woman I know in another forum who was a "friend" of mine. She's a pro organizer. Then she asked me if I would be on her program despite the fact that she knows my house is the way it is due to trauma. I didn't have to think about it for more than a few seconds before the NO answer came out.
And, of course, the "friendship" vanished.
I was surprised and a bit hurt as I thought she actually liked me, no she just saw a good victim!
Anyway, from the "hints" you've got above, that's what it reminded me of, and I'm curious if it's the same woman's show or another or...?
