There are so many things that need to be done for my family and around my home. If I were MS free the shit would be over and done with. My family and house would be rockin’! It’s time for to-do lists I’m thinking. I need to put all the things that need to be done in order by priority. Then figure out how to it all…
I do not start out the day with many spoons, so I must utilize them smartly.
There is sooooooo flippen’ much clutter in my home that some places are hard to get into with my wheel-chariot. My closet has become ‘here’s where all the junk goes’ central. And, yes, I’m a bit [huge bit] of a pack rat. It’s hard to let go of things. I guess we could buy a bigger house so I can have a ‘junk’ room… Okay, back to reality!! But, that is an idea! 😛
Where to start:
get tax stuff together
go through closet and get organized
get salvation army pick-up together
get all my jewelry pieces together and clean design area
find someone to hangs doors and add door guards [to protect from wheelchair, lol]
front closet cleared out
Now these things may sound easy to some, and years ago I would have been done in a couple of days. Now, this stuff could and most likely will take a month or more to complete. Now all I have to do is to decide what to do first and how to get it done!!
That’s what I am!! lol The past few days I have felt accomplished. Each morning after the kids leave for school, I’m up and washing the dishes, tidying up, etc.. Some may say, “Big Deal, ooh you tidied up”! Well it is a big deal. Dishes take a lot out of me. Trying to reach up and over the sink to get all the plates, silverware, and glassware is tiring. It’s amazing how a dish can feel like a 20 pound weight. I have bruising on the upper back of my arms from the counter. But, to me it shows I’m moving and trying to do things. I’m slowly trying to de-clutter. It’s all about baby steps. After getting all the dishes done and things straightened, I’m ready for a nap. 😛 When I was well, my house was spit-spot. You could eat off the floors. Now, not so much. One of my OCD issues I have had to learn to deal with… slowly but surely.
I’ve been on the Ampyra for almost one month. I’d like to say I’m running marathons, but not yet. Ok, never ran them when I was well either! 😉 Do I notice anything different, better? I want to say that it seems easier to rise up from my chair to transfer, but I’m afraid if I do I’ll jinx it. I am going to get out my walker tonight when the hubby comes home and try to at least use it to get to and from the tinkletorium. Wish me luck!! I have not been able to use it since my Hell Hospital stay. That place fuckered me up. But, it would take a lot more than those fools to keep me down!!
