Getting cleaned up seems to be a major chore for me too. I had my hair cut short so it does not take as long and I "force" myself to brush my teeth in the morning and at night (I smoke and I can't stand the taste in my mouth) Legs are shaved only once a week.
Maybe brush your teeth right after supper so that when your too tired at night it is already done? Because if your like me and a lot of people the less I have to go to the dentist the better! GamJill
The fog is rolling in lol. I just did up a post and hit a key and it went somewhere into the fog. Anyway, I was brought up to take a bath, I always hated them because I couldn't sit that long. I took one a few yrs ago before a dr. appt. As I started to get up I fell, slammed my ribs and inside of arm into side of tub and my tailbone on the bottom of the tub. I now only takes showers . I have to take a hot shower each night, I have constant burning pain in my back and the shower does help that. I also shampoo my hair and my hair is a bit longer, to the shoulder. I have to bend over to dry my hair because I can't hold my arms up for any length of time. I brush my teeth 3-5x per day, mouthwash 2x, and floss. I have just a little bit of OCD. I couldn't sleep at night if I didn't brush them before bedtime. When I'm shaving my legs, my hips, knees, and ankles are killing me from bracing myself. My family kids me about how long I take for my shower, I can only go as fast as my body will move. I can't wait for it to be over, too. I feel drained when I get done, but I also feel a sense of accomplishment.
God bless. Alice.
P.S. I will attempt to hit the right key, ta da
My hair is curly AND has a mind of its own. I let it air dry a few times, scared dogs and small children! I only use curling iron for special to dos, like a wedding. None in the near future, so I'm ok.
Hope everyone is feeling a bit better now as the day progresses. It has started off being nice, I've heard that it will get more humid today, hope not. I feel very sore and burning right now, and I hate to lose the whole day to being miserable.
Wish you all a good day. God bless. Alice.
Kythe, I have a shower chair, too. My DH got it for me after I almost passed out in the shower. I had just come home from the hosp after my hysterectomy. I used it for a couple of wks till I felt stronger, then back to standing. I find it difficult to sit to shower or work in my kitchen. It just always feels awkward and I feel off-balance.
Sherrine, I wish the hair on my legs would slow down as I grow older. I have to shave every night or I have to braid it lol. Options, options!!
Karen, I hope tomorrow is a good day for you and the berries. What kind are you going for and most importantly, how are you going to fix them for ALL of us? Shortcake? whipped cream? lol Sounds like a fun outting, have fun, but don't tire yourself out.
Kythe, my family and I don't always share the same schedule so we leave notes for each other. During the daytime, I will 'remind' my children by leaving a text on their phones. If I won't see them after I go to bed I leave a note on the bathroom mirror. I used to leave it on kitchen counter but they walked past, same thing w/ fridge. But, they all need the bathroom at some point. lol. Usually, I remember things, but I still write things down on my calendar. Sometimes writing it down helps to reinforce the memory. I have left notes to myself on the bathroom mirror. My children think that is too funny, maybe you might remind yourself w/ a note right there in bathroom.
Karen, glad you got some needed rain, hope the 'morrow is better for you. I've never had blackberries, my DH loves them. He used to pick them at his G'ma's house.
Hope you have good day. God bless. Alice.
