Lived in


Between my OCD-collector son, and “I-might-need-that” packrat husband, we’re one cardboard box from a Hoarders episode. The only time my home will be spectacularly clean is at my wake.

The Trifextra challenge for this weekend is to write a non-fiction submission of 33 words, which must include one of these two-word phrases: “cheap flights,” “sandwiched in” or “spectacularly clean.”

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. you should take a picture of their clutter. would that “shame’ them into cleanliness?

    i can relate. our girls’ rooms are ridiculous


  2. We are borderline hoarders in this house! I LOVE the accompanying photo. It’s perfect. Something never seems “right” to me when I see a perfectly pristine house.


  3. I love that you always find a perfect image (from your own personal collection) to illustrate your posts. And I am a firm believer of less is more, yet there are some stuff that I just can’t let go (ask my mom and her basement holding my junk…)


  4. Love the cars. My son still has his collection… but his cars are not so well taken care of. They’re in a Rubbermaid bin.

    I sometimes feel the same way. I often wonder how much stuff we’d miss if we did an extreme overhaul of every room and got rid of things we haven’t used in a year or more.


So, tell me what you really think:
