I'M A WHAT?



A WHAT ?

A HOARDER ?

Well,  slide me into some boots
and throw me up on a horse Hannah...

I NEVER !

I mean, I may have a few lot more pairs of sandals than two feet need. And I may not need so many blue jeans or comfy cargo kinda pants. Or all them cute tops to drape over this ol bod... (I have NO social life to wear them) Ya, I may not need all them pretties to wear on my neck and arms...And we won't talk about all the pasta or Chai Tea in the cupboards. Or all the post-it-notes on my desk so's I can remember to remember... etc.

But this ?

And it's not just a normal, run of the mill Hoarder I'm being accused of being, oh no.

Just feast your hungry, inquiring little minds on this..
And I quote (cause she said to)

"Some might say that one blog is overkill
...not me though. More than one and you are a hoarder. 
You can quote me on that one. Xo "

SEE! I've been called a....

BLOG HOAR-DER!

Well, snap my garters and find me a lamp post Mabel !!

Hmph...


Lets just do a little research here and see....

(Disclaimer...info is from Wiki, scratch outs etc. are mine. This is me spoofing me and not intended to make light of a true disorder, ok? Ok, carry on...)


Lots of perfectly healthy people have cluttered homes blogs

A hoarder Blog Hoar-der is not simply a pack rat. A pack rat gets rid of some "collectables" "posts" when he or she runs out of room (on the blog). A Blog Hoar-der simply moves the stuff into the bathtub onto another blog.

HEY, that's just being organized, right?

Ok what else is there....

Some fairly reliable signs of a hoarding Blog Hoar-ding problem include:

Attempts to sort junk informative posting from valuables more intellectual postings only results in moving things from one room blog to another

Being unable to use rooms blogs for their intended purpose because they are too cluttered

Having too many animals blogs to care for them properly

Many  A couple or three people, have suggested there might be a problem...

HMMMM....

Ok, ok, just cause someone, we all know and love, sent me that smart ass, opinionated email...

And just cause PJ  called me the other morning and threatened informed me she was gonna do an edit job on me cause there was TOO DAMN MUCH on here. And this after begging telling me to get rid of the other blogs and just have this one more than a few times (she'll put links on the important stuff), doesn't mean I need help, right?

And what about this guy? People giggle about his stuff..



Ya, we'll have that tune on our cluttered-enough-as-it-is  little minds... ALL DAY NOW!!

in Oscar's trash can

While appearing to be the size of a normal trash can, Oscar's residence is actually larger inside than the exterior would suggest. Oscar has noted through the years that it boasts such amenities as a farm, swimming pool, ice, rink, bowling alley, and a piano. Other items include Slimey, Oscar's pet worm; Fluffy, Oscar's pet elephant; Oscar's shoes; and a dimension gate to Grouchland, Oscar's hometown.

 See, Oscar's world is very livable....


But then I saw this...

Compulsive hoarding Blog Hoar-ding is not, at the moment, well understood in the community, and it can be a difficult to treat. The best way to increase the chances of overcoming a hoarding Blog Hoar-ding problem is to catch it in its early stages: If you see signs in yourself, or you suspect someone you love might be headed down a dangerous path, reach out. Hoarding Blog Hoar-ding is not about laziness or sloppiness or being a "gross" person. It's a manifestation of a deeper emotional problem, and immediate attention can help nip it in the bud.

Ummm Hmmm...

Guess I been exposed...

Nipped in the bud so to speak...

The one out of the bowl...that would be me, always the oddball  goof ball (yet another describing of me by a one blog person...grin)

 So I'll tell ya what I'm gonna do....

IF,  and that's a VERY BIG IF... I get TEN comments on here BEGGING nudging me into a one and only blog, aka this one, then I'll do it.

Yep, I'll take the cure...

I don't think I've ever had 10 comments on any one post here...let me go see, hold on a minute...

Well I'll be dipped, I found one with 11, yes ELEVEN comments so it really is possible!

So now it's up to YOU or whoever...

BUT WAIT!
(infomercial input)

Go see the other two first, (links are on the sidebar, top right. *the other me's*) then decide if they can somehow be morphed Frankenstein-ed into something not too goofballish...

Blog Hoar-der or not, I have a reputation to uphold here :)



I'll even give it a few days to happen...

post update....everyone's comment counts! Except maybe 9 of the 10 SUZ left...mwahahah








Carry Comment on.......

All right, I'll be the first to comment. I'm all for one blog only, because I'm too darn lazy to look up three. There, I said it. And made it my fault, and not your's.
How's that?

'Auntie' said...

Thank you Dear Vickie, for your care, during Hurricane Irene!!!

Busy Bee Suz said...

Busy Bee Suz said...

Busy Bee Suz said...

I had no idea how large the inside of his can was...amazing.

Busy Bee Suz said...

You know who I really miss??? The cookie monster. Wonder what he is up to these days...

Busy Bee Suz said...

Hey, do you ever watch that show hoarders?
makes me a bit sad.

Busy Bee Suz said...

Oh, and animal hoarders???? ONE could say I am an animal hoarder....does 2 dogs, 3 cats, one snake and three small fishies count as hoarding?

Busy Bee Suz said...

Oh darn, the snake did not get fed yesterday.
Now, I gotta remind Lindsay to feed him after school today....I am so tired of doing everything myself.

Busy Bee Suz said...

Contrary to popular belief, one is NOT the loneliest number.

PⒿ @ $ € € ₦$ ₣®0₥... said...

One blog, indivisible.....or there shall be no justice.

PⒿ @ $ € € ₦$ ₣®0₥... said...

If we hard wire some C4 and then detonate it, will the other two blogs implode and crumble to the ground? That would be soooooooo worth it!!

PⒿ @ $ € € ₦$ ₣®0₥... said...

I have to go pay my bills. My vote is to kill the other two blogs and do it NOW and kill them DEAD, leaving NOTHING in their wake.

Cheryl said...

I didn't even know you were prolifically writing your heart out over here! Get rid of all but one, woman! We all know you're a bit schizoid so what difference does it make if you post silliness one day and seriousness the next?

Do it for Suz. Do it for PJ. Do it for your sanity. JUST DO IT!

KABOOM!

Judie said...

So you are a blog hoar? I always wondered just how many spellings of that word there actually were. O.k., I have bookmarked this blog, and will post it on my favorites, but I am leaving the other one up, just in case. Fair?
xoxo

Dominique @ Dominique's Desk said...

I use to have several blogs but now focus mostly on one as I find it easier to manage.

Fairfield House said...

Vickie,

I will read your wonderful words no matter where you post them. If you are a blog hoarder, considering the amount of time between my posts, I must be a blog minimalist!

Thank you for your concern and prayers during Hurricane Irene and the aftermath.

Your Friend,
Deborah

Uh oh. I didn't know there were blog-hoarded police. I am soooo in trouble! ha!
