I don't even do it anymore, believe it or not my husband does everything. He's a great man- works all day & comes home to help me with chores & even cooks. (though he loves to cook) I just can't do it anymore, when I do feel up to it I am in bed for 3 days in tears. I'm lucky to get a 30 minute walk in each day. Just seems unfair dosen't it? 31 & I can't even do the laundry. (sighs) But, I am blessed to have such a wonderful guy. But, I have a maid service come each month for about 2-3 hours to get the hard stuff, bathrooms, kitchen, fridge & oven, windows & ledges, baseboards, fans- those type of items. They even will go outside & clean my porch & patio furniture! Have you considered a maid service? Usually you can find an independant for about $15 hr. I pay $30 for 3 hours but the business is owned by my aunt. The thing I like about a service is they are liscensed & bonded, which is a big comfort. Not that I am hiding the crown jewel in my home..... but you never know. But take it easy either way, I know it is so very hard..... I am almost OCD when it comes to clean. But it is not worth further injury..... for no reason at all. ((hugs)) I know it can be very depressing, I feel worthless sometimes cause there is so little that I can actually physically do.... but even my husband has to stop me because he knows how much I hurt afterwards. At least we are not alone.
