Good Morning

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket    I hope everyone had a good night's sleep. I slept ok. I only woke up one time during the night. And this morning I slept til 7:35. I just put a half pot of coffee on to brew. I need caffeine to wake me up so I can tackle this housework today. It's my kitchen. I think every dish, plate, bowl, cup, glass, pot and each piece of silverware is dirty. The sink is filled, stove is covered in dirty dishes, table is totally trashed with anything and everything and the floor is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. It's disgusting in that kitchen and I don't even like going in there. I can only do so much, then I have to rest, otherwise I ache so bad in lower back and legs that I just fall down. I have a very hard time keeping up with housework. It's not because I am lazy, because I am not lazy. Ever since the cancer and surgery, I have more problems now that give me limited use of certain parts of my body. Like my right arm. I am right handed, so now since I have very little use of the right arm I do everything with my left and it takes me alot longer. Say if it takes you 5 minutes to wash one dishpan of dishes, well it takes me at least 15 to 20 minutes. By the time I am done I am holding onto the sink for dear life and have to sit down. So today I'll probably be in that kitchen anywhere from 4 to 5 hours cleaning it. I have to get it done, it's horrible.

Emma and Dan will be dropping off Marissa and Daniel to me around 3 today. Emma has to go have another ultra sound. She has to go to Albert Einstein hospital, and it is a far drive and Emma doesn't know her way. So on these days she goes there, Dan works til 1pm then comes home to take her. He loves seeing the baby on the monitor. Maybe I'll get a good pic this time to share with you all.

Mmmmm, boy is this coffee good. I really need it too, lol. Well, I guess I will get some email read while I enjoy my coffee, then go and tackle my kitchen. Take care and enjoy your day.

Love to all....................

  1. Just do what you can and to hell with the is not worth you being in PAIN over dishes, truly. Do some today and what you can...i see that you are always pushing yourself....just take it one day at a time my friend.

  2. Get Emma to pitch in & help, I know she's pregnant...but she could wash dishes a couple times a week for you. And what about your hubby...get him to vac a couple times a week, or help with dishes. they know your limitations &  pain, they should help.
    But then, look at me, NO HELP. My family knows my pain, but no one offers to help. GRRRRR

  3. enough said .....i don't think i need to say anymore lol

  4. Does anyone care about the North American Union?  You'll all be Mexicans before you know it.

  5. Just do a little at a time and if it takes all day then it is ok. So dont overdo it!!
    Love ya,

  6. If I were there I would help you out. Is there anyone that could just volunteer an hour or so every other day to help you out? Or could you afford to have maid service one day a week? Cause when that baby arrives I am thinking you may need someone to help you and Emma out a little. My prayers are with you...smiles...

  7. Maybe Emma will let you borrow the picture and you can show all of us?????

  8. Slowley does it, just a bit at a  time!

  9. Ughhhhh I hate kitchen clean ups. They get messy so easy :( I wish the cancer didn't leave you less mobil. Our family friend is the same way. She had breast cancer and mostly now she just had problems breathing and getting out of breath so easy. She said that was due to the radiation. :( Sucks.
    Hugs Sis

  10. You have to take it easy Cindy, it's not good to over do it. I feel bad, I wish someone would help you out some.

  11. I sure can relate to a body's limitations! I wish there were someone that could help you with the house work. Hugs to you.

  12. Sending prayers for Emma....

    and you... I am sorry that you are in pain...

    be well,

  13. Hope everything you wanted to accomplish got done. Honey you are far from lazy with all you do. Your strength is amazing. You're such a wonderful person regardless of how much pain you are in you do for your family. Hope Emma's doctor visit goes well. Can't wait to see that doll baby.
    Take care and Hugs, Chrissie

  14. Hi Cindy, I wish I lived a bit nearer to you, I would love to come and help you, as I have back problem myself I do a lot of my housework sitting down whenever possible.  I can imagine us together me doing a bit and then resting and then you having a go it would be fun, and then sharing that delicious coffee together. Ah well  don't overdo  it little and often is aways the best method.your friend, across the pond in the U.K. Kathie.
