Fall Whirlwind


Yup, that looks like our apartment this weekend!
Or maybe more like the Wizard of Oz where the house was spinning...
We totally swapped our bedroom around and I LOVE IT. I'm one of those Flylady people since last year(now I've got BFF Kathy doing it!) and although I don't strictly adhere to her daily schedule(fibro and CFS prevent that) I do use a lot of her theories. You'd be surprised what you can accomplish in 10 or 15 minutes! I cleaned off and rearranged stuff on my refrigerator yesterday while waiting for Roger to get out of the shower.
But in fibro/CFS world, everything has its price and I think I'm in spoon deficit(if you don't understand the spoon theory check out the right side of my blog and click on it...the girl who came up with it did an amazing job) until mid November anyway....but it was worth it to see the Fall cleaning accomplished. Of course, I overbooked my schedule and it had to be rearranged. The kitchen didn't get done but valances are being put up over the sliding door and windows. I decided since the kitchen will need to be in pristine order for Thanksgiving cooking, why do the deep cleaning now and give it a chance to get messed up again? So that's the early November project.
Colin brings such joy to our lives. He's the young blood we need in this household. Shania has finally accepted him unless he interferes with her food. Everything is new and joyous to him. His hobbies include finding and eating acorns, playing with falling leaves and playing with his beloved toys. I'm still trying to teach him to fetch a ball but he's not having any of that. He loves his chew bones and Ropie. He now has a Ropie with a tennis ball on it and he runs through the house like a whirlwind as well.
It will be nice to have a whirlwind to experience every day!
Enjoy the weather and have a phenomenal week!
WE INTERRUPT THIS POST TO UPDATE ON ROGER. I CAN'T BELIEVE I DIDN'T BLOG ABOUT THIS....IT'S BEEN A DOCTOR WHIRLWIND HERE AS WELL. THANKS DEB W FOR REMINDING ME.
WE HAVE TO BE AT THE HOSPITAL THIS THURSDAY OCT 1 AT 5:30 A.M. FOR A 7:30 A.M. SURGERY. I WILL CALL HALLIE OR LAURA WITH THE UPDATES AND THEY CAN UPDATE THEIR BLOG. I CAN UPDATE FACEBOOK FROM MY PHONE BUT NOT MY BLOG :-(
PLEASE KEEP US IN YOUR PRAYERS AS WELL AS THE SURGEON AND ALL MEDICAL PERSONNEL WHO ATTEND TO HIM.

Please remember to take care of you, too. At the very least, extra cuddles with Colin. :)

Ness,

How did it go? I wanted to give you enough time to catch your breath! I hope that everything went routinely and that Roger is home recuperating as he should be! Please let me know when you get a chance.

Hugs and love,
Deb
