Hoarders, Intervention, Messy House, Bless this Mess . . . HALP!

My mom saw it coming.

My sister has goffed at my skills.

And now, I’m accepting it for myself.

I’m a “before” episode of Hoarders.

“Before” it gets bad enough for TLC to bring out their team on interventionists.

My house is Before the Before and After.

The pictures below were taken from my chair where I “work” many mucho hours of the day.

Notice how artsy fartsy the mess looks when taken with the fancy iPhone Hipstamatic app.

“It’s not a mess, it’s art!”

Reference Chart

1: My not-to-be cluttered pretty table, now cluttered
2: Dog bed that belongs in the living room
3. Super-pack of toilet paper
4: Cardboard box (to be fair, you’ll find these all over MessyHouse)
5: Rag towel the girls use to wipe their feet off when they come in from playing

1: My Lappy!
2: My HP Photosmart Web Printer!
3. “Folded” kid laundry from which the girls dig through to find clean clothes
4. Last night’s pajamas
5. Pile o’ single socks yet to be matched
6. DVDs, printer ink cartridge boxes, Checkers (why?), panties
7. Bar countertop, in need of its own separate intervention
8. Tuffet for Little Miss Muffet that belongs in the play room which also needs its own intervention
9. Bubble wrap “blankets” for Claire’s babies.

This is just the beginning.

Who wants to see more?!

Indeed. You are four square feet of carpet away from A&E’s “Hoarders.” Don’t tempt me into calling them. You know how much I want to be on a reality show.

PLEASE GOD NO!!!! (Sorry. That was the apparently loud OCD talking)

Okay, so screw BlogHer, Zoë and I will fly down, totally take over your house, and clean it. Even just so that it’s hoard-less for the following two days after we leave. Capice?

I don’t think I could love you more than I do right now. I don’t feel so alone any more.

Hello, my name is Tara and I am a Hoarder…

I am with Tara. I think we “clean” alike.

If I lived there, I’d totally clean it in exchange for, like, back massages. I’m queen of organization, which is both a blessing and a curse.

OMG, my 1 bedroom apartment has your house beat! But, I’m too afraid to take pictures and post them for you and the ENTIRE world to see. Yes, it’s that bad!

Please don’t post more pics…. *wink*

To all those who wanna come fix it? The room you’d stay in is actually the neatest in the house. Well, just a few minutes from being so anyway.

I’m free and I’m not working, and all I ask in return is a day at Disney with all….I still even have a pass left on my ticket!!!!

Been there, and over came it when you have to move and they charge you by the pound! remember Smithtown and Mt Sinai?

How did you get a key to my house? Pic 2 could have been taken in my living room. I feel your pain.

Did you fire that immigrant girl you had cleaning your place?

If you didn’t, you should. If you did you shouldn’t have.
