  •  I am thinking I may try tackling my own laundry (2+ / 0-)

    today. Not quite to carrying a basket two-handed, though; I'll use a laundry bag to get it up and down the stairs.  The finger keeps healing, but I am terribly impatient and want to do everything NOW.

    When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.

      I know it must be horribly frustrating.  Do you reach to do something automatically, forgetting the finger is out of commission?  I bet I would.

      Sending healing thoughts...

        First finger of dominant hand. Less so now though. Of course, it also doesn't hurt so much when I forget and bash the tip of the stiffly wrapped finger into something.
