Playing Catch-up

I know there has not been many posts on minis for a few days. After three months of being unable to walk properly and loads of medical tests, I've slowly be feeling better and more able to move around. This of course means that finally the real house gets some much-needed attention.

FH had been helping with things all along, but he couldn't do everything that needed to be done with his full time job taking 8 to 10 hours out of most days, including some weekends. He was able to make sure filth never got mixed in with the clutter. That's what mattered to me. I loathe filth. So now I'm working on a so crawl through the house with a combination of decluttering and deep spring cleaning.

There will be no before pictures, because frankly I'm too embarrassed to admit I let my house get to it's current state. I still can only get a few hours of the deep cleaning done in a day. My stamina isn't quite 100% yet. But soon! :-)

The neurologist said there's nothing wrong with my nervous system. So we're back to square one with trying to find the cause of the weakness, loss of balance, and inability to walk properly. I have a theory but I'm keeping it to myself until I see more evidence.

Kat, at least you have a good reason for not having a perfect house. Mine is a mess most of the time and I have no excuse, other than the fact that if I clean it, I will just have to do it again next time it gets messed up. Over and over again.LOL I hope you feel better!

My MIL will be here for Memorial Day. So, the 'deep' spring cleaning will begin soon. When we are expecting visitors is the only time the house is completely clean at one time. Our house is cluttery, but not usually dirty.

Don't let the 'deep' spring cleaning poop you out. Take care now that you're feeling better.

Thinking of you,
Mary

Your last sentence worries me! (Hee! My word verification is "remess." That's exactly what my house does after I clean it!)

Hoping your health improves soon and you can do all you want to again.
Try not to worry about the house. Houses always wait but i do know how these things niggle on your mind.
If i was closer i'd nip over and spring clean for you. I love cleaning other peoples houses for some strange reason.
Best wishes... Nikki x
