Today I want to give up.

I suck at life right now. I'm a horrible homemaker, and mother and wife right now. My house is ridiculously messy. Not just a little messy, or "gosh it looks like a bomb went off in here", but horrific. When my older sister told me her house was a wreck when I went there last week I was expecting something awful, but it looked as good as my house could look if I cleaned non stop for months. My messy and your messy is probably very different. And I don't like living this way. I want to give up, run away, and hide.

That is all.


  1. Go watch Hoarders. It will make you feel better.

  2. Mel, that is exactly what I did! I feel bad for those people, especially the family members living with the hoarder, but it did make me feel a lot better. I even set up two episodes to tape. lol

  3. When my grandmother died and people went into her house it was discovered that she was a hoarder. I am not exagerating when I say there was 30 year old cat and dog excrement on the floor. When her refridgerator died she just duck taped it clothes - moldy food and all - and bought one of those small dorm sized fridges. Her shower didn't work so she when she did bathe she did so in the hose outside. No one had been allowed into her house in decades and she had disowned her only child years before. The friends she left the house to (not doing them any favors - it had to be completely gutted) sent me some pictures and it was Oh... My... Our house was always messy growing up, and being that we have a lot of kids ours is always pretty messy too but this was beyond beyond beyond. It made a lot of her behaviors make sense. It didn't undo any of the damage she did to her child or grandchildren, but it sure answered a lot of questions!
