Simplifying, A Process
Is there anyone out there that has ever been good at multi-tasking? I used to be, but I look at that as a thing of the past now. Occasionally, I seem to manage it on a one day basis, but my brain doesn't seem to work that way anymore. My mother used to say, "I have a one-track mind." It seems I have inherited that with all my wisdom and maturity. I'm writing this with a smile on my face: it is true, and I have to smile and know I am not beat. So I am tackling one space at a time. Today, it has been the guest bedroom. I am emptying a file cabinet, so I can move it or get rid of it.
I did all those days with FlyLady and I am still dealing with clutter, less, but it is still here. However, it takes time to organize and go through things. I am not going to let it spoil the holiday season, which is oh so close. I can hardly believe Thanksgiving is next week. I wanted to have it here, but I know I can't because I have been sick on top of the chronic illnesses. I am finally starting to have more energy and my joints are not aching like they were. It is hard to believe a simple infection could have affected so many parts of my body, but so goes life with fibromyalgia and CFIDS. I am glad I got the UTI, because the antibiotic is clearing up my sinusitis too. I honestly think the sinusitis is what began my downhill spiral.
For some reason, I am also dealing with an unusual amount of itchiness, which makes wearing a bra uncomfortable. I can keep it on for a while, but then it has to go. I might have to consider changing detergents: I just thought of that one. Anyhow, I never cared a whole lot for bras, but the girls look better when I am wearing one. I am sure you know what I mean. Ooh! That was private.
Yesterday and today I have been cleaning out a file cabinet. Sometimes, it is hard to believe I didn't do this sooner. Simple is my goal. And I plan to enjoy the process as much as possible. So with a smile on my face, I return to some of the necessities of simplifying and also sticking some fish in the oven. I think my husband would enjoy supper tonight. God bless you all and good night!
