Why, isn't the home inspection for the stuff you don't see? Termites, bad wiring, foundation troubles, leaking roof, stuff like that?

Btw. you sent me a email a few weeks ago. I couldn't get to what you wanted my to see, but thankyou for trying! Who was I related to?

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!

I am anal, that's why. I bleached my bathroom again. Twice in four days. I forgot to take my pills until now. I went to my aqua fitness class, but it was over - I keep thinking today is Monday. I keep washing clothes & towels because I don't want anything in the hampers. I need help.

I should be doing my other work, but I can't help pick up every little hair or fuzz that falls on the floor. I don't want anyone walking in my house until Thursday unless they are in a hermetically-sealed bubble...including my husband who took off his black socks and a little fuzz came off on the floor. Luckily he saw it and picked it up and threw it in the trash. I keep emptying the trashes...or going to the main trash.

Good Lord, KT, you're going to have a nervous breakdown. Make yourself leave the house at the same time your husband does tomorrow morning and go do something, anything. Go read in the library. Go shopping. Go into Boston.

Grrr...when I hit reply to the last post in the thread...or a post like Uncorked's at the top of the page, I get a blank screen.

I had to hit reply to the second to last post and delete it and type my message.

I was going to say that Uncorked's cartoon was cute...I have one cat who runs after us after coming out of the shower to rub up against our legs...she wants to be the first to "claim" us, probably...it must be tough being the last of 3 kitties. She's the mental one...but she loves me more than my husband, unlike the other 2...she is so adorable. She comes up on the bed between 3-6am and will butt heads with me and rub her face on mine. I just don't like when she tries to lick my face because she's got seriously bad breath.

I've lost an additional 2 pounds...on top of the 7.5...

I washed the floors in the kitchen but didn't think they were shiny enough so I took a towel and windexed each one.

She is fascinated with water, heh...

Our little one jumps in the shower as soon as we open the door, rubs, flops over wanting belly rubbed. Gets totally wet!!!

Kt, have you been checking your blood sugar??

If it is Ok, then.......you have just been working too hard.

That's a good thing...our big cat is like that...sometimes when I am taking a bath...just before I add bath bubbles/gel. I will just pour a handful of water on the cat and she LOVES it. She begins to just lick it off herself like she's bathing beside me. Weird as all hell. It is funny because when I am taking a bath now, she takes her place on the bathmat...

If you can find someone to do it, you need cognitive behavioral therapy . It is fast, a few months, that is it.
But, they would make you face what you fear.


Trick is finding someone who knows what they are doing.

It will get your mind off of housework, whenever you see something to clean just go play the game and eat something with a lot of fat in it.

Blood sugar has been high...not from eating sweets, mind you. It gets high if I don't eat for long periods of time.

My fear is not doing well on the home inspection.

Once the home inspection is done and paperwork has been signed, I can sort of go back to a normal life....

But you aren't doing your other work, you are being distracted from it. That is why you need a game because you won't be distracted from it.

Stress also causes high blood sugar. One of the three things.

Good lord KT, the home inspection is of the mechanics of the house, not how nice you kept it. Were you even there long enough to neglect something enough to show up on the report and be your fault?

Now, if you bleach the new place a few times, that I don't have a problem with. I don't like unknown dirt. I am very tolerant on my own dirt.

I would love to be able to get into the dorm room, for a day, by myself, with the cleaning stuff.
Dorm move in isn't set up that way.

Go to the store and get some veggies that can be microwaved or, better yet, make hubby do it.

You need some carbs, KT. Throughout the day. You know better. Go have a slice of bread or toast. Bake a potato in the microwave.

Tomorrow, I will sleep in a bit and then get to work, I've decided. If the phone rings, I will just let it go.

Well, I realize this to some extent, but my fear is that in the back of a closet (I cleaned all the bottoms of the closets today) looms a spiderweb or a dead bug and that will turn off the buyer.

Not really. There is a little external painting to do...but it is too cold to do it.

While you say it isn't "how nice you keep it," that isn't exactly true...people are short-sighted. They can't see beyond messes. If you look messy, they assume that you haven't kept up with things...

Oh my, god...definitely. Toilets are the first things to be replaced in any home. I did that in this home.

KT said,
"I am fine. I just need to get through this short period of time, then I can relax."

I said, "Gosh, I thought I was stressed you make me feel relaxed in comparison."
Don't know how all that reply came out wrong.

I never said you where, but that doesn't mean that you can't discuss your problems\concerns with someone. That being said, it can be hard to find someone who is any good at it.

You've done more than is humanly expected...what will be, will be!!
Take some slow, deep breaths regularly, sing a favorite calming song to yourself...whatever helps...
