    Same temp out as yesterday but a lot more damp and dreary. Little actual rain right now but it sure feels like it's raining. So the windows are closed up today.

    I've been up since early this morning, before 5am. I made pumpkin bread in the oven, a loaf of honey cinnamon in the bread machine, floors are done, bathrooms cleaned, etc already. Now I just have to fill my pill box and get the boy's school work together. I did Bit's yesterday.

    Oh, and the light in the living room burned out. It's a really high ceiling and we are without a step ladder, so hopefully a friend of ours can bring one over later. I don't even have a chair to stand on to change it, they all have wheels LOL.

      Not so much that I'm going to change my ways, mind you. :)

        They'd probably take you at least half the time they take me as you don't have to stop and catch your breath between. I've gotten into a routine with things and how to keep on top of them. So long as I can keep that I won't get overwhelmed. The problem comes when something throws a wrench into the works (like a hospital stay), then I have to play catch up which is a LOT harder on me physically.

          the fewer things I find that I HAVE to get done, and the longer it takes me to do everything.

          I will admit that I'm less of a perfectionist than I used to be, but I think it's mainly because I don't see well enough to notice the cobwebs & the dust bunnies.

          (The other day I almost got clothes-lined by a spider web.)

            Plus with hardwood floors and Dad walking with a cane or walker, if the sand builds up (and it's Florida sand builds up daily) he slides and falls. Add in dog hair, cat hair and crumbs and.. well, you get daily floor maintenance (more often if it's damp and sand clings more). With 5 people in the house dishes are another thing that's an every day wash, laundry a few times a week. I try to get to the bathrooms at least once a week with spot cleaning between, etc.

            I'm sure once the kids are grown and out of the house I'll be the same as you LOL.
