Hi

I just moved out of a house where I lived for 29yr, 8mo and I had thrown in the towel when the bottom inch of one our doors rotted due to rain and mice overtook the house coming in under the door from a junkyard next door, our landlord kept saying he'd fix it, never did, for 11 years only 2 people were invited in, I was embarrassed. There were many other problems that made me feel like I was camping.

But I am now starting with a smaller home, built the same year as the other one, but this is updated, the other was absolutely original, just falling down. I am out of the habit of proper cleaning and need help, here I am. I want to feel like I can have friends and family over and relax in my home!

I am 5 months post-op following spinal surgery. I am doing well but lost my part-time job because of it. Living like we were really made me depressed, major surgery, job loss, constantly being told no as we tried to rent a place (there is a 1.8% vacancy rate here, it's hard) the stress every month telling the landlord we couldn't find anyplace-he's giving the property to a family member so no hurry but we were wanted out, 2 pet rats died, a friend's suicide, it's been a hard 6 months.

Thank you for reading and looking forward to maintaining a clean home once we unpack-at least I have plenty of time for that.

Hi, I am Christina. I am soon 55 years old. I am Dutch and live in The Netherlands.
I've been dealing with foot pains and arthritis of the hip in the past years so I find it much harder than before to keep the house clean and tidy. I used to tackle the cleaning and tidying all in one day and then was done with it, but now I have to spread the activities to do one task or so per day and that really clashes with my all-or-nothing nature.

Because of the European privacy laws, SP does not send me any notifications of new posts and threads. So if I don't respond to something that was posted, know that it is not because of disinterest but because I won't be notified. I do get notification of new blogs posts of those I follow and also of comments on my own blog and page, and sparkmails sent to me. So if you want to reach me, send me a sparkmail or post a comment on my blog or page. You can also post on the sparkpage of my public account with the username 'White-2'.

Good evening, I live in FL and work a full time job. My husband stays home to watch over mom and does most of the house cleaning. However I want to help him and this forum will keep me focused.

Got to keep moving forward! When you find yourself moving backward stop, reflect a moment then take a step forward again!
