I've named the mess in my living room 'Harold'.
I'm going to murder the fuck out of Harold tomorrow and stuff him in a dumpster.

My daughter just left to pick up an out of town friend for the weekend. Cleaning like mad, and now I’m getting into a decluttering mood. Hoping that’s a good thing. 

And I learned a new word... “scurryfunge”... literally means rushing around cleaning when company is on their way over 😂

That's what I did today. I scurryfunged until I gave up. Glad to know there's a word! Still the clutter to contend with, but I cleaned the bathroom did basic straightening up and sweeping vacuuming, and made the house smell nice.

I’d like to take a moment to bemoan the state of my back yard.

Mud. More than half of it. Grass won’t grow because of the complete shade from our enormous maple tree, and because it’s completely demoralized after dealing with twenty years of dogs, multiple dogs at a time. Running. Playing. Aggie loves to dig holes. 

We are on track to have the wettest year on record, and the snow hasn’t even started yet. So all that grassless area has just been mud for most of the year, since the ground thawed in April. 

Thus, on any given day, my cleaning goal could, and should, be “cleaned the floor.” Because the fuzzy little buggers do not wipe their feet. Even when the ground is dry, they track in dirt, and leaves, and twigs, and miscellaneous detritus from the tree. Ever seen those pretty spinners maple trees send down as seeds? We have them. By the thousands. One end is slightly sticky. Adheres really well to dog fur. 

It is just too damn much to scrub the floors every single day, but today I did it. It was quite the thing.

Same. Every night my friend and I watch our two goofy happy idiotic 70lb dogs trample any blade of grass that had hope, while we watch, drink wine and laugh. But kudos for mopping! <don’t look now, I think Aggie just reversed the clean floors>

I’d like to take a moment to bemoan the state of my attic. It’s filled with stuff taken from my parents house after they passed. It is so depressing to me. After I quit smoking pot, I barely go up there anymore and I’m not painting. But I need to start getting rid of the clutter. It feels like it’s cluttering up my soul. I know I can do this, I need to find a home for everything up there or take it out of the house altogether.

Goodwill or Salvation Army?

At one point I had drain flies (you haven't lived until -- due to leak in kitchen), cereal moths (soon to be ex leaving shit open), and fruit gnats  (which I also blame on soon to be ex.)

When the locusts start arriving it may be time to dive deeper into numerology

my room, henceforth known as "The Science Experiment," is out of fucking control. I have cleaned it multiple times, but due to household renovations, a surprise visit by relatives, and health issues, it's turned into a terrifying mess that has eaten a few rewards club cards, a spare phone that I use to play games, and some very important papers. It's got a clothes monster, a messed up desk monster, and the top of my closet makes me not want to open it. if I do, what's up there will try to kill me by falling on my head

I unloaded the dishwasher, put everything away, reloaded it, and started it. Now I’m thinking about folding the three loads of laundry that patiently await me. That’s probably as far as I’ll get. I was busy.

      I hadn’t been cutting for long before I was found out. My parents sent me to therapy hoping for a full recovery. I haven’t cut since the end of May -a little over for months ago- but I still fantasize about it everyday. I feel that since I’m not an active cutter I’m seen as being better but I’m not better. The urge is still there and life is harder now that I’m not doing essentially the only thing that remedied the pain. I wish I coined express this frustration to someone but I hate to disappoint. I burdened my parents and enough already and don’t want to hurt them anymore. How can I make the urge go away or get my parents to see that I haven’t fully recovered without hurting them? If you have any advice please lmk. Thanks.

      So, I have a problem with germs. Not to the point of burning my clothes or bathing in bleach. But, I have a things with germs...
      Thing is, I just got a walking cane (my meds were really making it hard for me to get around). It works great and I am thrilled. But it was touching the sidewalk....and now it is in my flat. I disinfected the rubber end with antiseptic soap and water several times. But I feel like this may be a problem for me.
      How do I keep this thing clean without obsessing over it? Any simple suggestions that would allay the germ fear, keep the cane tip clean, and not have me panic!

      I could use all the help I can get in terms of tips to make cleaning easier and to generally suck less.
       
      I'll go first:
       
      1. Kitchen: I don't stand idle while I'm waiting on the toaster or the coffee to brew. I clean. It's amazing what you can clean in five mins and it makes it less painful than into the kitchen with a full cleaning mission. Also, I find that I'm on autopilot before coffee and toast. It's like anesthesia for cleaning.
       
      2. Laundry: Pair your socks before throwing them in the hamper, floor, etc. Matching socks will not suck as badly. 
       
      What are yours?

      I'd started cutting when I was in the 8th grade. Funny thing is.. I don't even remember why or how I started. And for the last 7 years I've recoverd and relapsed about once every few months. Everytime I feel too pressurized or feel like I'm stuck in some situation, I break and relapse.
       
      But this time I managed to go one whole year without cutting. Even with sharp stuff in my hand (I do a lot of crafts) I've managed to stay away from it and haven't even tried to cut. And it's not like bad things didn't happen this year. Actually some of the worst stuff in my life happened this year. Somehow I've held back from relapsing. It's been tough but definitely worth it.
       
      The urge, though, is still there. Behind all this satisfaction, I can feel the urge right there. I'm a lil scared now cuz its been growing a lil stronger recently. More than it was this whole past year. I do not want to relapse. It's too hard to get back on the recovery track and i hate the feeling of guilt and shame afterwards.
       
      i've been keeping myself as distracted and busy as possible but is there anything else I can do, while resting? Suppose I were laying down, doing nothing.. How do I stop myself from having these thoughts? 
       
      I'm really lost and don't know what more I can do to help myself. I have people to talk to but.. they don't really understand. They try to but they are a lil judgemental even though they try not to be and I can't bear that. So I try to avoid talking to them much about it.
