Well, I've been VERY Busy This Week.

I helped My Hoarder Client on Monday. (Which is Very Stress-fully Cluttered.) She's ran into having No Job @ All right now, No $$ fer more Bins & Umpteen Trash Bags of Recyclables & Trash all over her Yard. (It's all fenced in & can't be seen from the Street. Thank God.) I feel sorry fer her. My Hubby & I have been helping her De Clutter her Small Tiny Apartment fer almost 2 1/2 Months now. I am happy that they Now have Hot Water emoticon, Which is the Reason, Our Cleaning Company was Called in the 1 St Place. I Myself have only De Cluttered One Level 2 Hoarder & a Mess Load of Everyday Kids/Livable Adult Cluttered Clients. (Which is Considered a Level 1 Hoarding if not kept up Daily. My Sweet Client that I'm now De Cluttering Started @ Level 5, Then Her Care Taker called us cos, She was So Overwhelmed, She was @ Tears. So, we Started back in the Middle of October & Have still got A Lot to go. emoticon.We've spent A Lot of Time & Energy sorting through Trash, Donation & Savable Stuff. As of Monday, The Living Room, Which was De Cluttered & Livable back in November is now Cluttered & Filled with Memorabilia, Memories, Tools, Books, Christmas & Other Holiday Bins, Etc...

The Wanna Bee Professional Organizer is now @ a Wall. A Wall, I don't like being @ at All. She's Already been @ Her Wall & Stopping Point Months ago. It's just Frustrating Now. She looks to me fer the Answers & With No Money, I can't Help her. My Services can be put on a Payment Plan, That's not an Issue, It's Needing More Money fer Bins or Shelving, Etc...That's a Problem!!!!! Counselor/ Therapist I am NOT & NEVER want to be. If she had more Money fer Organizable Bins/Shelving, I won't be writing this. I'm tiring to come up with a Nice Way to tell her, Until she has the Finances, I am having to put her Hoarding Clean Up on hold. I don't want to Stop helping her. It's Now being VERY Clear to me, What God has been Tiring, to tell me. I'm GREAT @ Cleaning up Others Clutter & This is My Career Dream now. It took a Lifetime to Find My Calling & It will take me forever to come up with the $ 2,000.00 Dollar to get Fully Trained as a Professional Certified Organizer & Then it'll take Another $ 3,000.00 to Get a Certification from the Board of Organizers. Org. But, in the mean time, I'll get A Lot of One on One Training.

It makes me feel GREAT, to finally have a Job, Business, Friends, Clients, A Life, To be Needed, Etc... It Boost Confidence, Makes me Feel I belong on This Earth fer a Reason, Etc....

My Rest of This Week was Filled with a Client that had me Deep Her Landlord's Home, Then turn around & Then Deep Clean Her Apartment (Which is Right down Below the House her Land Lady uses.) I was there on Wednesday until 1 Am then Had to come back Thursday @ 6 Pm & Finish Her Apartment. On Friday, I went to My other Clients Home & Deep Cleaned Her House so, Today, I'm REALLY Sore & Tired to Deep Clean My Apartment.

My Home Almost Always gets Cleaned Last. My Hubby Thinks I'm Mary Poppins or June Cleaver. Merry Maid or One of these Top Named Maid Services, I'm Not!!! I'm just a One Person Crew fer now & By the Time I get around to Our Apartment, I'm Too Pooped. Wait until I get up enough Clientele & can afford to Pay Someone Else to Clean Up after Me. emoticon, Then it'll be Different. Fer Now, I take & Swallow His Insulting Words & Do My Best to keep him up in Laundry, Clean Dishes, Towels, A Clean Toilet, Etc... I understand His Frustration, I would like to see him Pay More Attention to His Part of the Household Chores too but, I also understand, We both need to Make a Living.

OH MY Gosh!!!!! I'm Rambling !!!!!!

Well, I'm Happy emoticon The Biggest Losers back on & All My Other TV Shows, Soon will see a New Face on Clean House (On Style),

Life in General was Hectic over the Holidays & Tiring to get Back on Track with My Weight Loss & Other Goals fer This Year.

Hope Everyone Else had a Great Week Too. emoticon See Yawl Next Week.

    Way to go for the job you do! I have hoarders as 2 of my brothers, but as of now they can't bear to part with much and one keeps collecting more. Of course, whenever we need something, he's the first to help or give! He's an amazing person, just has no room to move in his house and garage.
