    Our lives re a bit chaotic but that doesn’t mean we have to follow it precisely or immediately to be liveable. Most things can be done when you can do them.

    It’s so tough sometimes.
    I have kiddos so I remodeled my house slowly over the last 3yrs.

    I have 4 laundry baskets…. and cubbies for them in my wash room.

    Some things can’t wait with kids…. but there are ways to make it able to wait.

    I have kid laundry bucket and house and one for me and my husband.

    If I can’t fold them…. everyone has a bucket so they can find cloths 🙂

    It’s worked out great….. until my husband … my only help…. broke his foot.

    Now I’m pushing limits and having so many symptoms.

    I’ve learned to sit on the floor and load the washer… empty dryer.

    Just sitting when I can helps tone down the stress.
    May look silly… but I don’t care… it’s MS survival 😉

      i need a stool in front of the oven. i want it to destress while i’m cooking. i think i’d enjoy cooking more if i could do it while i relax and stretch on the chair.

    I don’t have a car or drive one. I rely on buses and trains or the kindness of others who give me a lift. I see how stressful driving can be. So I always say if I win the lotto I will get a nice car with a driver! No stress for me Lol 🙂

    I do not know how to un-stress when my adult children and my grands a are going thru horrible situations! I pray and meditate , but my humaneness still worries even when I think I have given it to God! Pray for increased faith for me!
