    "I long to accomplish a great and noble task,
    but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks
    as if they were great and noble."

    ....Helen Keller

    I think this quote applies to my housekeeping chores!

    My mother used to tell me "Your eyes are bigger than your stomach" when I took too much on my plate. I feel that my hopes for doing chores are bigger than my capabilities.

    I get up thinking of all I would love to do!!!!! i give out sooo fast. I want to do these things but I just can't. No energy!!

    We will keep trying!!

    It hit home today. I am acutally having my son and grandkids over for dinner tonight. I have gotten things done so if I crash, all can be handled easily.

    But, this used to be so simple.

    Anyway, it's been a long time since they've been here so I plan to enjoy them as long as I can tonight. Saving my pain pills so I'll be able to interact.

    Thanks for posting the note.
