Cramped


maxineI must be feeling better today. I woke up and did not cry.

Instead I looked at the cramped conditions in my living room.

I have shifted and shifted in order to get Al‘s wheelchair to fit properly to the kitchen table.

Today I had had it. Everything looked cramped. No matter where I turned I felt stress.

Stress is the last thing I need in this  house. I have enough of it without inviting more in. So, I got to work. I am not done yet. I had to take a break from where I have moved big a big roll top desk and my furniture.

I have more space but now I found dirt hiding behind where the furniture set. Now this leads to more cleaning. I have also cleaned the living room walls as good as I could. I have cleaned ceiling lights and fan blades.

I smoke in the house so every six months I have to at least clean well the living room. I hurt a little in my arms, feet and neck from pushing and shoving but Advil should kick that out. When Al comes home he may or not notice anything, but I do. I smell Pine-Sol fresh.

Back to work, see you soon, if I am not eaten up by dust bunnies.

    • hahaha, I still move the biggies, but only because I have no one else to help me. My bedroom is the only one who remains the same. The furniture is way too heavy. I can only imagine what it looks like under my bed where the cat lays so much. Talk about dust bunnies, or would these be called hair ball bunnies????

  2. I hate cleaning .. only when it’s necessary … I think if I had been smoking it had been a different matter. Good for you – and I can image that you are scattered now. I will be cleaning windows next week – and I hate that too, think of go for a window cleaner. It’s only to get started, when I’m on the go nothing can stop me.
    Feet up now .. homework is a punishment.

    • I only clean windows on the inside. I enjoy doing that. The outside I make my son use the pressure washer and clean them all. LOL. Once I get cleaning there is no stopping me until I drop from sore feet! or done!

  4. when i was more physically able to do cleaning i loved it. it gave me a sense of accomplishment. even now i try to clean a shelf or flat surface. we tend to let things go and use our energy for other things that are more enjoyable.

    at least you won’t have to feed those bunnies:)

    do take care and not overdo! sending warm hugs and love to you
