washing the counters

Feb 5, 2013

Yippee! The utter and absolute exhaustion is letting up. Yesterday was the first day in four weeks that I was able to get up without feeling like I could pass out at any moment. I still stayed in bed all day, but went out to the family room for Family Home Evening and then read to my family from our new read-aloud. Afterwards, when the little children had gone to bed, I realized I was feeling pretty good and that my kitchen was looking pretty dismal. So, I sprayed down the counters and started scrubbing. Wahoo! I didn’t feel winded, my heart didn’t race, and I didn’t collapse. After that I still felt great, so I vacuumed the kitchen floor.

This is a first! And cause to celebrate! I think all the treatments I had over the weekend really helped.

    I wonder how you really spell all of that! But I’m totally happy and wanted to say it like my mom would have. Actually I googled it and came up with all these:

    Yippee i oh ti-ay
    Yippie yi yo …
    Oh, yippee-i-o-ki-ay

      Tonight I vacuumed the carpet! Wahoo, I am making progress! My poor house is really suffering after a month of complete neglect, but at least tonight the upstairs got vacuumed.
