On a serious note, I was collecting Lizzy High Dolls. Sorry, couldn't resist what's really going on in my life.

I collect medical bills and dust. And my collection is quite large!!

My MIL collected everything from beany babies to china to depression glass. Guess who got that booty?

Me, who hates clutter and collectibles! I put the stuff in plastic bins. It's sentimental and I understand that. I take out certain pieces throughout the year and display them.

But honestly, I'd rather do without all this stuff. It clutters my house and my mind if that makes sense.

In my next life please remind me that I am supposed to live in a clutter-free zone. And I am also supposed to be living at the beach.

I collect angels. My first angel was from my mother-in-laws funeral. Cancer took this lady who I laughed with far too early.

I sure do miss her. I have real angels in my life but I see angels everywhere I go.

My PCP is my first lyme & co angel. I've wrote this often on this site. His 45 year old wife was recently dx with colon cancer out of the blue.

No sx at all. Day before family was going to Florida for spring break this year, she had unbearable pain. Vacation canceled.

Appt with GI, who is friend of ours. My PCP went to this GI with his wife because our GI is known as best in this city and these 2 doc went to UL med school together. It's a small world afterall.

I get upset when my PCP angel tells me about his wife. Not in front of him. I feel I need to show my support.

In comes our own Lymetoo. Another angel in my life and she makes angels. So I look at Lymetoo's angels on web. We discuss and I pic angel with big heart in her arms.

My PCP wife is Red Dress Club in Louisville who make Heart Disease Awareness for Women in our area.

I give my PCP the angel to give to his wife. He tells me his wife collects angels. I almost fall apart in front of him again. I wait until I leave his office.

I've meet his wife at basketball games and their children more than once. He lives near my sister and b-i-law that live in the woods. My PCP has been in my sister's home in the woods.

I told my PCP this angel was made special by my friend Tutu in Missouri. A lyme friend from my online support group.

Lymetoo's angels are the best. If you need her web page I can share or PM Tutu.

I cried when I got a thank you note from his wife last week. She's going to wear my angel gift (pin) when she does her chemo tx.

I shared it with Tutu. Tutu was the one that helped me help someone else get through a rough long road of tx and good thoughts and prayers.

Angels helping angels. God is good and it doesn't get any better than having angels watching over you.

I must go cry now.

Alana.. I'm the same way. I can't handle clutter. I have enough stuff around here.

I can't handle clutter either. If things aren't weeded out...I can't think!

I'm a chucker and give a lot to charity. Less is Best!

Less is best. My angels are in a old family heirloom secretary piece with glass on front. I display my angels proudly.

I don't have energy to dust little things, let alone the coffee table and the furniture. I pulled the vacuum out of the closet the other day just to think about maybe using it.

My husband said I have 20 minutes before I leave to run this. Go for it love. Thanked him. It worked!!! [Big Grin]

I love when a plan comes together.

Tutu, I've done that so many times. Yeap just give up and put it away. Maybe we should hire a maid to move it?

I have a no shoes policy in our house. Everyone is very good about it but my husband. I will even tell him if I do vacuum that day.

I'll tell him today is not the day you want to forget to take your shoes off. The man is like the Energizer Bunnie.

In and out of the garage(man cave) over and over again. Even my grandsons ask why Papa wears his shoes in the house sometimes?

They are really wondering why he's not dead from doing it? [shake] [shake]

Lets see....I collect red crackle glass. I have 25 of them on a kitchen shelf.

Yea, they are dust collectors. Every once in a while they go in the dish washer.

The rest of the house is pretty empty! Less to dust. When i moved from NY to AZ got rid of most of the stuff. that's all it is anyway....STUFF

Did someone say vacuum? What's that for?
