What a work out!

Monday, June 07, 2010

We sold my mother's patio home - 2 bedroom, no basement, no attic.... Mom is in a nursing home, has been for several years now. So, with selling the home, we needed to pack up, remove, set up for a garage sale and clean up the place. WHERE did she get all this stuff? HOW did she store it all..... with no storage room, other than a closet in each bedroom and the front and back hallway! Three days into to the tasks, I decided to step on the scale and weigh myself. I had gained while on prednisone, so thought maybe I would lose a pound or two. I had been sweating daily (& I never sweat - I truly do NOT like to work out and sweat!) Anyhow...the scale showed a 12 pound loss! ZOWIE! I not only lost the pre-prednisone weight, but alos another 2 pounds. My pants now need a belt. Is this a good feeling or what. So, I am advocating that hard work, you know, cleaning and scrubbing, lifting and moving stuff around is truly a work out. I am not done yet. The sale is 4 days away and I still have setting up to do for the garage sale, then to clean all the closets, cupboards, floors......every space imaginable in the house and garage. THEN, I have to find space for all the stuff mom gave to me during this process. Not to mention that MY house needs a thorough spring cleaning! Summer is only weeks away!!
