I hear you on hoarders, Cindie. miss pixi's dad and brother are hoarders. It really fucked up her childhood (among other fucked up things). Their yard is full of stuff too, not just the house. I counted 6 tractors, a camper, about 4 old cars, 4 boats, and all kinds of other equipment, all rusting away. Such a sickness.
My boss (whose kids I nanny for) is wealthy. They live in a McMansion and could stock a Toys R Us with all the toys and clothes she's collected for her kids. Plus all the other stuff she has lying around. She does keep things organized somewhat, but god... get rid of something! Her daughter has, I swear, 50 pairs of pants and 50 dresses in her size... She owns 1 dozen baby carriers for the babies. Yet the babies don't seem to have any pajamas for cool weather in their size.
A friend of mine said, when I told her about this family, when you're lower income, you're a hoarder. When you're wealthy, you're a collector.
Be careful in that woman's house. I hope nothing falls on you.
