Lost my mind & found it again
An update on my July 9 post begging for encouragement:
DS is out of a wheelchair and on crutches full time, other DS is happy enough, DH is out of town, and I'm on vacation this week.
AND (the big news!) the house feels under control (not in great shape, but under control). It's amazing how much more I can handle when I get a whole night's sleep and I'm not overwhelmed by too much at once. Flylady & baby steps saved me again.
One thing that helped me most: Revamping the priority list and dealing first with the things that bothered me the most. Home-cooked meals are not a priority this week. Lint and debris on the laundry room floor, on the other hand, was making me CRAZY. The laundry room is down in the basement, nobody sees it except me, but it was just dragging me down knowing it needed to be swept. LOL Funny that the laundry was done but it was the floor that bothered me most.
I rotated 5 minutes in each room for 2 hours for 2 days, just removing the biggest aggravations. I've had time to relax, play on the computer, and feel MUCH better.
