Made for TV

I realize that sometimes I make mountains out of mole hills, but this time it really is a mountain!

Once a week for the past month, maybe 2, there has been a mountain of trash a few doors up from me.

It's not really that extreme,
but some weeks it doesn't seem too far off.

It started with the new neighbors 2 months ago. I still can't figure out why someone would have so much shit to throw away after moving in. Isn't is typical to throw stuff out before you pack it?

Or maybe that's just me.

New neighbors' pile o' shit seems to have subsided, but I think they triggered something with the family who lives between us. Just like me, this family lives in half a duplex. There's is a 3 bedroom I do believe, but it's still not much bigger than our dinky 2 bedroom.

Every week there are numerous bags of trash. And I don't mean the Febreze scented, extra stretchy bags you have in your kitchen that give you wind-blown hair when you open them. I'm talking about heavy duty, giant contractor bags. FYI ~ the contractor bags are 40 gallons. You could fit a small child in that sucker. Actually a lot of small children!

Add to the pile of bags some boxes, miscellaneous furniture, and/or car parts. I walk back into my house and wonder "Where the fuck is all that shit coming from?!"

As of today, I am convinced that they belong here.

Oh, that reminds me. I have my own bags o' crap that need taken to the curb. It was birthday weekend around here. Maybe my pile o' crap can give theirs a run for their money!

Um, you do realize that's not actually my house?
Do you think I would post it if it really was?

Sometimes I wonder where all of our garbage comes from. Jdaddy is normally the garbage-taker-outer, but today is garbage day and he won't be home until this afternoon, so I had to do it last night. I kept filling up bags and bags. Our entire bin/can thing is full, the recycling is full, I have a few boxes outside of the bin, and all our pumpkins are out there too. I swear, you would be talking about us too. LOL

You would be talking about us, too. I have NO idea where it all comes from, but I swear, we make so much trash around here.

I love that show hoarders - but it always makes me want to clean. I'm not sure I've made it through a whole episode.

You are so right; you'd think they noticed all their crap when they were packing it UP at the old place.

OMG awful! My fav: "I still can't figure out why someone would have so much shit to throw away after moving in. Isn't is typical to throw stuff out before you pack it?" <----Peach it sista! Our corner neighbor is the same way and it makes me insane!

Totally reminds me of Hoarders! Whenever I watch that show I feel the need to organize something.

Since I've been packing this week I have two febreeze scented (I love them!) kitchen bags per day but that's a lot for us!
