Pick Up

(For anyone who visited yesterday...I'm doing better. They released me from the hospital last night. The decided diagnosis was inflammation around my heart and in my chest caused by a flare up of my Lupus. Thanks for the well wishes :) )

Passionate People Perform Pleasingly

This to do is so much fun to do, right?

Pick Up

This is also known as cleaning or straightening or housework. Which means I need not explain, we all know of this dreaded word. At least it's dreaded for me. With a five and four year old that run crazy through the house no matter what I say, it makes cleaning a very constant to do. I'm not sure I ever get to really mark it off.

I do find there are a few things that make it easier. Picking up in the mornings or in the evenings, or both. Make it fun-this is actually easy if you have little ones. Put on some music and dance around as you pick up stuff. Or turn it into a game. If you have a lot to pick up, make a mini to do that has things that need picked up. I know that may not sound helpful, but it is.

Just figure out what works best for you, and get it done.

Happy Picking Up :)

(Sorry about the late post)

Kela, I think you had an excuse! Glad you're out of the hospital.

Glad you're feeling better! Know all about cleanup. Don't know how I can spend an hour cleaning up and the kids only need 15 minutes to make it look like a bomb went off!

Oh bless your heart...I do hope you take good care and get better. I have a dear friend who has lupus and I know it can be so difficult.
