Are you A Hoarder?
You've been watching Hoarders, haven't you?
My mom could have gotten on their show.
I think my wife me be A hoarder. My wife background.
She come from A middle class family, her mother A
teacher, her Father A factory worker. It,s not like
she came from A family of 12 kids were they fought
for food at the dinner table. Our home is neat and
in good order. The problem, when we go out to
eat she will stuff salt, sugar, jam and other items
in her purse. Our cupboards are overflowing with
these items. We have plenty of food. If we are
out eating breakfast she may have A slice of
beacon and two spoons of hash brown left, she
ask for A doggy bag. We travel A lot, we have
A cabinet full of those small container of skin creams,
soap,and shampoo, we do not need it. Our grandkids
were visiting two weeks ago, we went to A fast food
for lunch, the boys ask for slush(drink), they did not
finish the drink and left them here. They are still in
the refrigerator, she refuse to throw them out.
Maybe I,m over reacting and then again maybe this
what happen when two people retire.
Yes mrsjones5 I have, I hope my wife don,t get as
bad as those people.
Thanks blondie, I can allways count on you.
I know several people who could be on that show including my MIL.
Side note about the hoarder show: great toe-curling fun, but is there a clinical reason why late-stage alzheimer patients should be particulary interested in the show, because it sure seems like it was designed for them, with every piece of trivial information being repeated 8 times or something like that.
Watching the show right now..don't know if it's a repeat or not, but there is this guy, Roi, in Michigan, whose basement was flooded. He didn't know because of all the junk. The camera zoomed in on a book floating in the stagnant water:
Kinda fuzzy, but.."Sing Praises to Jehovah."
