horders bewear spring is here! spring cleaning (ugh!)
Omg! I didn't realize how difficult that would be. She had a hard time letting go of stuff. I don't know who was worse her or my dad. Dad had a recliner upstairs that was broke and the leather was torn. He threw a tantrum when we asked if we could toss it. He said, "get rid of the couch but not my recliner. My dad has 5 18 gallon tubs full of books. They all wouldn't fit on his book shelf. He didn't care. Told me to find room for them because he wasn't getring rid of a single one. I tried to show him that he could download a lot of the books on his tablet but he said if I threw a single one out I wasn't going. To like him. So they stayed and continue to clutter his house. My mother wanted to keep everything. An ash tray even though she doesn't smoke because of who it used to belong to, aa mini vase not even big enough to hold a single flower for the same reason.
Just when I thought I had an area organized and cleared out she'd come fill it up with junk. I had her sewing maching table cleared off and her sewing machine set uo and ahe comes and puts old camera bags on it, art supplies, extra tote bags ect.
Ugh! You can't convience her she's a hoarder. She will blame everyone else or make a thousand and one excuses how it's not her fault. Once a hoarder always a hoarder!
