On the next episode of Hoarders

Six-year-old Anna is turned in 
by her grandmother

when she discovers the room
she mucked out on her last visit
a few shorts weeks ago
is now probably worse
than before

I don't know where Anna gets it

how crazy would I be?

 to put an IKEA floor in my whole house?

Emily did it and it looks great

although not her whole house

and by  my whole house
I mean just the main level
where I have hideous 
white vinyl
and even more hideous and very old white carpet
that I am sure holds all sorts of 
nasties that make my son's allergies worse
and I hate to see him laying on it
I really just want to make some changes
and make it nice
because I'm going through some changes
but  mom
I know I don't  have the money
so don't email me all worried
I only need like 1000 square feet
which would only cost like $1000
so maybe I'll have a carwash or a bake sale
or maybe some big wig at IKEA 
will see this and want to prove that 
although inexpensive
their floors are durable and nice
and suitable for a house with 3 kids and a dog
and sadly no cat
so they will ship me 1000 feet of Tundra

a girl can dream

oh me? not much...

since we last talked

my cat died
she was 12
and beautiful

my husband moved out
he was angry
and sad

my best friend at work got fired
he was talented
and amazing

I sent two kids 
to the ER last night

their seasons are over
they're thankful
it was not worse

we all have some perspective now

Jack got his halo off
the neck brace too
and is going home soon
