I have never thought of myself a a hoarder. Sure I have things from years ago but I still use them, wear them, need them. That’s not a problem. I can throw stuff out, I do it all the time. I regularly go through closets and cupboards and clean out clothing and kitchen appliances.
So imagine my shock to find I am hoarding in the medicine cupboard. You all know my perspective on healthcare, for a hospital trip the requirement is bones sticking out, bleeding profusely or death! The kids recite this while rolling their eyes if they hurt themselves. 🙂 I’m not the gushy, worrywart parent, of course I check if a child gets hurt but for the most part I can repair it, cure it or nurse the victim back to health. There are exceptions, like our recent ER trip, but they are few and far between, thankfully.
I have a very extensive medicine cupboard. Don’t judge me. I have all manner of pain killers, cold remedies and wart remover, remedies for pink eye and UTI’s. You name it, I got it. It all gets used but there’s one thing I have an over abundance of …..medicine cups.
It’s ridiculous. Both the kids have been sick over the weekend, so I have been giving them doses of every kind of cold medicine, coloidal silver and echinacea. I didn’t need to wash a medicine cup all weekend. They each had their own set.
I might have a problem:
I blame the drug companies. They’re the enablers, selling those little plastics cup strapped to the top of every bottle of Tylenol, Ibuprofen and every other cough/cold medicine on the market.
It’s all their fault. I should sue!
