A Happy Day

It's a good day when I can do my own housework with a minimum of pain....BUT....
I've learned:
I've learned the job isn't always done AS WELL as I used to do it and I forgive myself for that.
I've learned not to have a knee jerk reaction to my good day and let my cleaning lady go.  The hubs will have to forgive me for that.
I've learned to be grateful for what I CAN do...
and......
I`ve learned to reward myself after one of my cleaning extravaganzas.  It`s called `dinner out`and THAT`S what makes it a HAPPY DAY lol.

  2. You are doing better than I am. I still beat myself up because it isn't cleaned as well or as often as it was. And find myself thinking/saying 'normal people...'
    Enjoy your most definitely deserved reward.

    1. Do NOT beat yourself up. You are doing the very best you can and that is worthy.

  3. Dinner out is a great reward, after cleaning up you get to eat without doing the cooking and subsequent clean up.

  4. I have never been good at housework. My dear husband Ron recognized this and suggested that I hire someone to clean our home. It will be the final luxury I will ever give up just before I go to the poor house. My current housekeeper has been with me 5 years. If she ever quits I have no idea what I will do because she will be hard if not impossible to replace.

    1. I know what you mean. It would be very very hard to replace my Wendy.

    2. I used to be a cleaner (as a job), if you move next door to me, I'd be happy to pop in a few times a week and clean. But I don't do windows. Not even my own (*~*)

  5. I've gone from big house to small home. Cleaning is a breeze, especially since Laura runs the vacuum, and her room is off limits for cleaning.

  6. This sounds like a great plan. I've gone from being a moderately good housekeeper to a terrible one, for all kinds of reasons, so I've been looking for motivation to get back in the cleaning groove. Dinner out might just work. May you have lots of low-pain days and lots of dinners out.
