I'm making progress! Yes, indeed, I am! This afternoon I spent the time cleaning off Mom's desk, cleaning out her magazine rack and clearing off her table beside her chair. Once her desk was cleared off I was able to Windex the glass! What a difference it makes!
When it came to her magazine rack I told her we needed to get rid of all the old magazines in it so we could make room for the stack that needed to go in. If she hadn't read the mags from 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 by now, then she need not bother. So I gathered them all up and took them to the trash outside. I do have a pile of bills etc. from her desk that I need to file away in her file cabinet but that won't take me too long to do.
I just have to shake my head. She is clipping out recipes from the newspaper and has a file started. She does not, cannot cook! They are recipes that I passed over...will not cook, have no desire to cook it etc.
Now, the next thing will be her bookshelf under her window. I'm on a roll....
I do believe she will feel better, I know I do, having just the three things cleared today! It does wonders for MY mental health!
