Here is another one:
Yesterday I started cleaning our bedroom Things pile up and stay there--sometimes for 2 years. Honest!
I got my rolling stool and rolled around the room putting things away--hundreds of things, well, maybe one hundred, not hundreds.
About 75% of the way through the clutter I found 2 receipts that I need for my taxes. I am about to mail them out! On top of these 2 receipts was a mountain of assorted stuff.
Miracle? You bet.
(a funny looking angel!)This stuff was put here when we had the floors done. Every room was disrupted . Little by little I have been putting it back in the right places.
I have not finished that room. Impossible for me at this stage in my life. But it is much better . Hopefully I can finish it soon. A few weeks ago , I improved the living room. Now I have sone some major work in the bedroom.
I have a cleaning person every 2 weeks who has been helping me and encouraging me. And the health aide twice a week in the afternoon is an angel and does my husband's stuff and also my laundry and dishes and sweeps the floors. Aides before told me things like they wouled do his dishes only and there is no way they'd do my laundry or sweep!
I am definitely seeing improvement around here. Not as fast as I'd like but I do see progress,
I have also gotten a former aide of my husband to do handyman things around here. We did some bartering so it is not as expensive as a 'real' handyman. This guy works with his father. So quite a bit gets done. They just repaired 6 of my broken chairs! Six!!! That is a huge improvement here!
Have a great day! And watch out for those miracles!
