Make a Plan or Wing it?

Im the kind of person who likes to plan everything in advance, well in advance.  That doesnt happen much anymore.  Life with MS and fibro means not knowing how you will feel from one day to the next. Sometimes it means not knowing from morning to evening.  Things have gotten more predictable and stable for me now. I know that shopping will have to be a one store, as quickly as possible trip.  My Hubs does most of the grocery shopping now.  He makes way more trips to the store than he should but I really appreciate it.  Lifting a huge bag of cat litter to the cart, to the trunk and then up my stairs is just too much for me.  Oh those steps!
The Kits keep me company.  Ive heard having one will lower your blood pressure.  I dont see how, considering mine are either constantly begging for food or getting into trouble.

A New Year The Same Me

Christmas is over.  The decorations were taken down as quickly as possible. I reconfigured the storage situation.  Most of them are no longer stored in the attic. They will be easier to retrieve next season.  New Years resolutions?  I dont make them anymore.  I only strive to do my best but I did realize the need to schedule some rest time everyday.  This will be harder than resolving to get organized this year !  I normally do all I can until I am ready to fall out...then I rest.  With Multiple Sclerosis and Fibromyalgia you should NEVER over do.  Do as I say not as I do :)   In order to get more rest I have to be better organized.  Wardrobe needs to be simplified, clutter must be removed. Ugh.  Why cant you do one thing without doing a dozen more?  Ok. I will do my best.  Simple, uncluttered, probably not but I will get more rest.
