Kmart Deal? PO Done!

I came across a blouse someone gave me. It is not in a color I like or in my size. Surprisingly, the blouse actually is large enough. Of course, it is from a better store than WM or Kmart.  Thursday, I decided that a necklace and earring set at Kmart would give me another outfit when worn with black sweater and pants.

When all was said and done, I decided $8 was too rich for my blood. Then, I realized all the jewelry that had been marked down before, was marked up! When I went to WM to get milk, I found a necklace there that I like better and was cheaper. When I can walk hanging onto a cart, I will look at Belk because they have some things marked down at a deep discount some days. They have no electric carts, so I will have to feel better.

Just before closing time, I dragged myself into the PO and mailed the two packages--one to NY and the other to TX.  I put out one line of clothes to dry and took them down when I fed Dominique. These two things, PO and clothes on the line, were the total of my accomplishments today. I forgot, I folded them, too.

Tomorrow, I will hang out the clothes I washed today. Slowly, I will get all the laundry done. When I was younger, I was like a whirlwind with laundry, washing and drying as fast as the washer and dryer got the clothes washed and dried. Now, well, I am sick today and don't, even on a good day,  move like a whirlwind.

The results of culture for the doctor is still NOT in! Monday, I am doctor shopping. I am so ill that I am not even eating right. I need gravy from KFC! No, KFC gravy is not eating right, but it will make me feel better.

Your turn
If you do things more slowly now, do you fondly remember the days when you worked long and steady and recovered easily? If you still work long and steady, do you believe you will ever slow down? Have you ever had a culture or heard of one that takes 6 days?

  1. I hear you. I can remember when I could clean the WHOLE house. And not just do it in stages. Sigh.

  2. Some days are better than others. On the not-so-good days I consider it an accomplishment to have washed my dirty dishes and swept my kitchen floor. Working long and steady is a thing of the past. The hardest part has been admitting it.

    1. Vicki,
      At first, I thought I was just not trying hard enough. Now, I know I cannot work long and steady. If my back had surgery, I could do better. Yes, I tell myself this!

  3. Syill able to do it all, but not as expediently as I did in my 20's or 30's....or 40's. I do remember those days fondly. I would get kids off, run 2-4 miles, clean my whole house, and have all my work done by noon, when I would sit down and craft, sew, or run errands. Sometimes, I would even TAKE A NAP. Kids home by 4 p.m., homework, dinner, dishes, t.v. and bed, rinse, repeat. Now, I am lucky if I finish it all by the time the kids come home....it's like the days aren't as long as they used to be.

    2. Meg B,
      Shorter days, that's got to be it...lol. Yes, I sewed, too. Back then, I had friends with children who could not understand how I could do it all. It all seemed so easy back then. Yes, I think back to 40s and even early 50s. It is like a dream now...lol.

    3. Tom S,
      And, now the days are getting shorter for real. That will definitely affect how I view the length of time to accomplish things.
