Good Friday

Friday, March 29, 2013

Our gift from above is seeing the sun for two days in a row! I see blue sky and some fluffy clouds!

Busy day at work, just scrubbing and cleaning. DD working on her medical regimen,, bleach baths, creams, making phone calls for doctors and U of M docs.
Going to get some more things for her comfort tomorrow and try to get her skin a little more cleared up for her comfort.

I do know that I learned that I may have to bite the bullet again to get yet another cleaning tool. My knees are shot form scrubbing floors on my hands and knees for years in teh cleaning business. Some homes had 5,000 square feet of tile or hardwoods and I cleaned every inch of them soem days on my knees.
I remember one place when i stood up, I felt blood vessels pop in both knees and they both swelled and turned back and blue immediately. I think that was the day my knees went to pot.

It paid for college and kept us in our home, but the price paid is my old-lady legs now. Oh yeah!! I AM old, haha!!
I think I may have to buy one of those scrubbing doo-hickeys on a stick to clean the bathtub. I have always cleaned everything by hand, no mops or short cuts, getting every corner, but now I know why God takes our vision when we age:so we cannot see the dirt we cannot reach to clean.

going to try to relax for a day tomorrow.. visit mom, pick up her mail and re-set the timer on the light in her living room now that it is still light out at 7 pm.
Everyone have a Blessed Easter!

    I'm with NorasPat - I'm trying to learn to be a "satisfizer" rather than a "maximizer" - advice from my DD, lol. It's just so hard to know when it's good enough as opposed to not good enough. In that regard, it's always been black or white to me. Either it's clean, and I mean CLEAN - or it's not.

    Try googling Don Aslett. I don't want to be advertising for a company, but besides selling supplies, they have videos that can give you more ideas, and their stuff really does work.
