Sore knees, as well as tired and achy body, slow me down; however, they don't have to keep me down. Nor, do similar conditions have to keep you from doing things you would like to get done.

Some people learn to pace themselves and get the house in a reasonably clean condition faster than others. Learning the how-to's is often dependent on a number of circumstances, so don't have a guilt trip over how long it takes you to develop a routine you can manage. It has literally taken me years to develop my habits to a point I do not have to stuff things in a closet or take them out to the garage to have a house that looks clean. I still consider myself and my habits as works in progress.
