It’s an OCC-OCC-OCD World! (October 2014)

Friday, October 24, 2014. It’s 7 am, and I’m listening to the far-off whistle of the train. I am so thankful for the cool fall air and this calm morning sunrise. I don’t see or hear any birds, though. It’s either too cold for them, they’re sleeping late, or the parish has sprayed so much […]

Clutter Monster Diaries, Part 1

If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign? ― Albert Einstein A Hoarder’s Lament I have experienced a momentary and curious flash of fear, at the prospect of clearing away a substantial portion of the clutter that has surrounded me for years. I […]

Signs You Might Be a Hoarder

Who, me? Like many people, I have enjoyed watching some of the many TV shows which feature sensationalized looks into the deep interior recesses of the homes and minds of individuals known as “compulsive hoarders.” However, not until recently, did I ever dream that I had drifted, ever-so-slowly, down that slippery slope myself.

It’s an OCC-OCC-OCD World! (March 2014)

Sunday, March 2, 2014 It’s 7:30, and I’ve been up (after only 3 hrs.) since 5 am, when my husband left for work. He’s working 7-10’s, so he has no trouble sleeping. I, on the other hand, can’t seem to maintain a normal sleep schedule. For two or three nights, I’ll sleep eight hours a […]

It’s an OCC-OCC-OCD World! (January 2014)

Friday, January 24, 2014. It’s a nippy 29 degrees, with sleet covering everything, here in Louisiana. I’m bundled up in my robe & slippers, and I have my bathroom faucet dripping, to keep the pipes from freezing. I sure hope that works, because we have another 24 hours or so of this! My poor checkbook […]

It’s an OCC-OCC-OCD World! (December 2013)

Wednesday, December 4, 2013. Well, the Thanksgiving holidays have passed, Cyber Monday is over, and I spent most of the day yesterday sleeping in to recuperate. Right before Thanksgiving, I spent over $400 on groceries, even though I knew I wouldn’t be fixing that holiday meal at home, not to mention I only cook when […]

It’s an OCC-OCC-OCD World! (November 2013)

Saturday, November 2, 2013. It’s 2:30 am, and I have been up for two days and two nights, working on my blog, reading my blog to any unsuspecting friends and family members who happen to venture too closely, and compulsively checking for badge notifications on my Words with Friends app. It’s been exhilarating, but this […]
