good for you d nancy!!! I like listening to both those ladies. I like that it is all about simplicity and doing the timer and being kind to yourself while you work. well done.
I agree about the calls - one of the agencies has an older woman (yes than me lol) who volunteers to make calls for pick ups - I always feel guilty if I don't have anything.
Wise advise d Harriet to your dd and for me re: my dd. Can you come to my home and do the same for me
I know I have to help dd see that pretending the stuff isn't there and that she thinks she needs to keep everything is not working and I do worry how she will be in her own home. You know - don't make the mistakes I did kind of thing. I can see dd and I will have struggles along the way. I think she is shutting down a bit and I have to figure out how I can keep her positive and moving forward no matter what happens.
I completely agree - I use her for basic focus and cleaning as her home is very minimal - easy to go through. lol one drop in the bucket (not a droplet) is me - I have too much stuff - I could never be like dianne - I wouldn't know what to do with myself being that stream line
For me it is the timer and her focuses and her cheery simple way of looking at things; no blame type of thing that I appreciate. She can't focus on how to get rid of mini hoards or clutter because her home is not in that realm.
dh finally let me great rid of that knife. we had a talk about how hard it is when he consistently questions my doing things - he is not doing it to be controlling or mean he just struggles with change. If I kept everything exactly the same he would be as happy as rain.
