Goodbye old friend!

They say confession is good for the soul but it just didn't feel right. Maybe I should have waited longer.
My friend is old; between you and me, I'd say she's dying! Yet she still struggles valiantly to please and accept todays modern ways. She's useless! Way too slow to keep up to me. Yet we've been together for an awfully long time.....longer in fact than several of my husbands combined. You might even say I've outgrown her!
I been there thru operations that were undertaken to keep her youthful. But I think finally the time has come where nothing more will help.
Today was the day to get her out of my life. I've been putting it off for months now. In fact I've already found a new friend. In the last couple of years we've been together more & more. I can take my new friend places; my old friend suffers from agoraphobia. She never wanted to leave home.
I can do all kinds of things that I couldn't with my old friend. The time it took her to get ready was absolutely mind boggling!
I'd put it off long enough. Today was D-day. I took back the last few items that were mine & still important to me. ....and then I dumped her! Unceremoniously!
I still can't believe it! It's just not like me! And even though I've no room for her in my life, I know where she's at. She'd take me back in a heart beat.
Here's a photo of my old friend:Can you make her out, sitting in the corner with her face all shiny?

and here's my new friendlooking ever so sleek and sophisticated.

Hello is this Hoarders Anonymous? Hi, my name is Karin and I am a hoarder......


  1. heeheehee...Some times, even when it's good for US it's hard to get rid of those old friends. (and Hi, my name is Deborah and I'm a hoarder too!)

  2. I am afraid that I am a hoarder also and today, I was listening to an advertisement for adults with ADHD and it said, "This program helped me get organized and find things that I was perpetually losing or missplacing before. Now, I can focus on the task at hand and know where my supplies are!" And I had just spent at least 45 minutes searching for a particular pair of tweezers! I broke out in a cold sweat. Maybe that's the problem!


  3. I have the perfect answer to hoarding - be forced to pack up and move 30 years of junk out of your house and before turning around and moving back in again. You are so fed up with it all that tossing out hoarded "stuff" becomes a pleasure :) This has been my life for the last several weeks!!


  4. Hoarding can be an excellent thing - Now that I'm living very modestly and don't get out much, if I want something I can usually go to my stuff and find something that works. I call it my little shop of treasures.
    I also like to think that I hoard knowledge. The more you have, the more you can improvise and invent. The best part of getting older!
    It's when you start keeping old toast and bacon rinds that you should start worrying! :)



Always love hearing from you....
