I went to my therapy appointment and then picked up a few groceries at Thriftway. I am trying to lower my stress levels as they adversely affect my fibromyalgia, and one step which I took today was to cancel my housecleaner. It is just too stressful to have her in my home and she manages to miss spots and blow circuits and unplug freezers no matter how many times I try to explain things. My doctor wanted me to have someone clean my home when we thought I had allergies, but since it turns out that my sinus issues are not due to allergies, my therapist and I have decided that a dirty house would be less stress than the current setup. And I am going to take it really easy this weekend. My electrician is coming over tomorrow to check out a few things, but that shouldn’t be a big deal. I did all my weekend chores today, so that my weekend will be a gentle one. With any luck I will complete the four quilts I am doing for Vashon Youth and Family Services. But now it is time to call it a day.
