Weather Related Woes

Sometimes, you really have to be careful what you wish for, huh? I longed for the weather we are having now, you, even cold this morning at near freezing, very windy...winds from the northwest.

 Oooh, my kind of weather! However, this was back in the day when I was in my 20's and 30's...I would go without a sweater or coat, sleep with the windows up, and all those crazy things that gave me the feeling of freedom and youth! I felt I'd never get old, although, I still don't feel that way now, but my body tells a different story.
  As soon as the temp dropped and the wind blew, the big FIBRO came knocking...hard. I have barely made it out of bed for two days now. It feels as if I'm dragging my body along. Seemingly, the more I'm determined to keep going, my body fights every effort I put forth. It is a struggle...and the pain is never ending! My med are effortlessly!

When I view your blogs and see the law and order of your homes, I wonder how you are able to keep things so neat and clean, especially with children in the home! 
My kitchen is awful! It is the room that's used more than any others, and is constantly cluttered. I like the country cluttered look, but this is a bit much!

Dishes and pots stacked in the sink and on the cab, cereal boxes, etc. not put away. Clutter everywhere!

This, in the past, would have driven me beans! But now, I have learned to not stress myself about these small things. I can't get up to do it, so, I leave it! Hubster comes in and take care of it all. Or, he will ask our daughter to do it. It gets done and I don't have to stress about it.
It was hard for me to accept this, but if I want to get over this round of pain, I have to destress and settle for what needs to be done. I can't change this, and I have certainly learn to live with it...what else can be done... there is no cure for it!
  When I see your  beautiful clean homes, I don't envy them or you...I just thank the Lord that things aren't worse for me and I can at least do what I'm doing now! 

  Hope you are having a good and productive week! I enjoy visiting gives me something to think about other than this awful pain...thanks for inviting me over!
Have a Blessed day and remember...Keep Smiling....Love to you All!


  1. I'm sorry Loretta that you are in pain. Fibromyalgia must be awful to live with. Sometime you just have to let things go and figure what's the most important. I'll be thinking of you Loretta. Feel better soon.

  2. Your kitchen looks fine! I have left you a surprise on my blog. ((HUGS)) Christy

  3. Lortetta sorry about the Fibro, that stinks.
    Thanks for stopping by and admiring my dog beds... I really enjoy making things for mans best friend.

    Here's the secret to my house appearing neat in pics... I move all the clutter and crap to the other side of the room... behind the camera is a MESS!!! :D

  4. I'm sorry you're in pain. Your kitchen doesn't look that bad! Sometimes it's good to just let go...Feel better soon!

  5. Fibromyalgia is life altering. You can only do what you feel up to.
    At least you are for real. Don't you think that those pictures have cleared the clutter first.
    SOmetimes when my kitchen gets too bad, I just get a shopping bag and put everything (non-food items) in it and stash it in a closet. Then when you have time and feel like sitting and doing nothing, you can go through it. Otherwise just leave it alone and be thankful.....not worth stressing over.

  6. Oh Loretta if you could see the whole of my house at the moment and I can't blame anyone but's just what happens when I have deadlines. LOL!
    The thing about housework it waits for you. I do home you feel better soon.

  7. Oh gosh, you should see my house on any given day. I actually have to tidy up if I'm taking pictures for the blog ;-) I wouldn't worry about it. Just focus on resting up and feeling better soon!!

  8. Oh, sweet Loretta, I hope this passes quickly. I just don't worry about my clutter when I have 'off' days, don't you either. Health is far more important.

    Have a beautiful weekend ~
    TTFN ~
