    Do you have the creep?

    My mother lives with me and we both have several hobbies and tend to collect or accumulate a lot of stuff. My bachelor brother came to visit and mentioned that Mom & I have the worst case of creep he has ever seen. I said,"What do you mean?", and he replied that if there is ever any empty space, she & I creep into it. We've laughed about that several times since - is it a disease? is there a cure?

    We are not to blame! Nature abhors a vacuum, so we have no chance of fighting nature.

    I have a mild case. I tend to keep all my stuff confined to one room. Okay, truthfully a little has crept out but I'm working on it.

    My husband is a hoarder and I fight this battle constantly. We have a very large basement and two storage sheds in the back yard. He never puts stuff back where it belongs, and as a result has at least two tool boxes! It makes me crazy!!

    I just call it clutter and gave up fighting it years ago. If my house dosen't meet your standards, oh well I live in my home. As long as it isn't dirty, i'm good with it. SO yes we have the creep to.
