Progress!

Sally came down this afternoon and helped me with my house. We made a lot of progress in four hours. If I get brave enough, I'll post some pictures about it, but you'll see how bad it was. It's going to take a long time to get the whole house finished, but the living room and hall are great now. The dining table is cleared off, but there are some more magazines and other stuff that has to go from the dining area. We took many, many magazines and newspapers to recycling and threw away some other stuff.

So far, so good. She's spending the night with Mother and will be back in the morning. We went over there for dinner and visited with my sister-in-law Janelle who stopped by. That was relaxing and fun. My mother's house is organized, clean, and always looks wonderful. She's amazing!

Glad it is going well. My house is getting away from me a bit with the wind up to Thanksgiving. I've put aside Saturday as a serious attack day!

Thanks, everyone! I am so tired!! But parts of my house are straight. I've been quite mental for way too long.
