Here I Go Again! My Nest Needs Some Work.

Hello Everyone!  I hope you have been having a good weekend.  Mine has been a quiet one, because last week I got pretty worn out, which I should have figured would be the case.  However, I was overtired and rebelling against the fact that is usually what happens to me when I am out of my little nest.  I went through that blaming it on other things, when the fact I was not handling things well, because of the fatigue.  So I have rested.  

But now, I have to deal with the fact I let things go this week and still haven't unpacked.  What is my plan?  Baby steps are the way to go.  I plan to work on one room at a time, and I will rest when needed.  Each day, I am going to post what I plan to do for the next day.  You are welcome to follow along.  However, I realize your home may need to be worked on in different areas, or maybe you have another agenda this week.  

Moreover, realistically, I may not get everything done this week.  That is the way it is with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and other chronic illnesses.  The point is:  I am not ready to throw in the towel and give up.  One, two, three -- I will work on the principle of threes, and I know the house is going to look better by the end of the week.  Who knows?  I may even take pictures.  


  1. Good Luck to you. I am still unpacking Moving boxes from Dec also! My son returned from 4 yrs of college with all his stuff too! Worked on the Garage today, and I know I will pay for it also, but my son has been bugging to get the home gym set up out there and I'm the one who has to look at whats in all the boxes :( One step at a time...<3

  2. Sue, I know it seems like an unending job; but, I see these people that manage to live in houses no larger than the size of an average family room, and it convinces me that we can learn to travel lighter. I am always amazed at how refreshing a vacation in a small place without all "the frills" is. We leave our things at home and never miss them. Good luck to you too. I hope your son will be an asset in moving things for you. Who knows? Maybe, he could even help.


It's always lovely hearing from you. xoxo, Deborah
