pretty sore

I did a lot of Spring Cleaning on Saturday. I had forgotten how rough cleaning is on the body--and getting older (and fatter) doesn't help in the least. *whew* I was doing a lot of de-cluttering as well as plenty of mopping and vacuuming with cleaning two of my bathrooms to cap it all off. This place was a disgrace! And there's still so much to be done--but at least it's started.

While the house is still quite cluttered, it's a great deal better than it was last week. My body is frickin' pissed off though. My hamstrings are just yelling themselves hoarse in little jabs of pain every time I stand up or bend over. It's quite sad that a little bending over to pick things up or scrub out a tub could make me this uncomfortable. How do people that do this every day--as in tidy folk that don't live in the midst of clutter and dust like I do--cope with the strain on their muscles? And the allergy attacks that all that disturbed dust creates? Oy!

I rewarded myself on Sunday with a trip to Waffle House and their hash browns and then off to Sarah Duke Gardens to enjoy the beauty of the flowers there. Unfortunately the blooms were dimmed a bit from our long drought but it was still very pretty there. And the prettiest flower of all was in the car with me.


Green eyes are just amazing.

I agree that as I get older it seems to take less to make me sore.

Suggestion for the sore muscles...
Hot bath/shower, followed by a massage, and then a nice walk in the garden...

I'm a big fan of FlyLady...I love the idea that you can do a lot in 15 minutes, so set your timer and go for it.

Why doesn't Waffle House serve pancakes? IHOP serves waffles.
