Confession time (post #62799)

Let's take the gloves off

Marie Louise was brave enough to say how many cookbooks she gave away, how many she kept

Let's hear some numbers....

How many do YOU have?

I need to go home and count, I know I have around 80 cookbooks back home in Brazil, but don t know how many here.

What else can I say? He needs an intervention! The good thing it really only needs to begin with you getting rid of the bad and ugly. No one ever notices that and it's truly embarassing if it's discussed. Throw it away!!!!!!!

OK I will add something to this. There can be a meaning to objects and keepsakes from a time, souveneirs of life. Albums are muti-dimensional, that's a given. Old underwear, the man has issues.

Love him anyways but I need to buy him new ones and tell him he can't have them until he turns over the over the hill undies.

Seriously, there was a Law and Order episode about children who had been in an orphanage, and how they hoarded everything...sounds like your DH.  Honestly, and I don't mean this to be cruel, but he might need some therapy to understand why he cannot let go, even of things which are old, ugly, and used up.

I might be partly this way.  Shortly after we moved, when we had tons of cardboard boxes in our basement, we had a tremendous rain, and water came in and soaked some of the basement.  I went down to find a box of pictures, from high school, from college, etc., were ruined.  I honestly sat and cried, but then I realized that those pictures meant absolutely nothing to anyone but me, so dried my tears and threw the box away.

We don't bother with therapy. I just make fun of him regularly. Works for me.

And therapy would spoil your fun for sure! :)

They told me I was gullible and I believed them.

It would. If he was all fixed what would I have to make fun of?

But those pictures meant something to you. That's different.

So Glenys tell me about this. I have a girlfriend who buys, buys, buys....if she doesn't have room for it down to the basement it goes. I had a garage sale a while ago and she brought over a couple of old chairs, real junkers. She put and absurd price on them, wouldn't go down in price when someone asked and then TOOK THEM HOME again to be put back in the basement. It isn;t a finished basement. Just a concrete cellar really. So whats with that? She told me she was going to clean out her basement recently. I didn't say anything, but I know she wont. When she bought a new gas BBQ, Iasked her if I could have or buy her old one. Nope.... Now it's out in the garage!!! Pamilyn

I found Girls Who Dish at one of those mall stands on the weekend. Had to pick it up. So the numbers will slowly crawl up again, til I purge the shelves again.
