Chronic Illness, Scheduling & De-Cluttering
I was recently asked if I would write an article that addressed how to conquer clutter and set up a schedule when someone has a chronic illness that limits his or her abilities. After chatting with the person a bit I wrote this article.
First I’d like to say that many people do not understand some chronic illnesses, yet alone ones that are invisible. Some illnesses such as Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Crohn’s Disease, mental illness, brain disorders, and many, many more are usually only felt by the person who has it, and sometimes, also by the family they live with. It’s difficult for others to relate to fatigue or exhaustion of their friends or loved one if they “look” fine. Continue reading
It’s been an interesting 5 days since I last posted. We took a little trip. It was just for a couple of days. Then I updated articles and other writings, and wrote a lot. I’m almost done with a time consuming project, and now I’m finally updating you.
Goal Project Planning is a real pain. I don’t know many people who like doing it. However, it’s a necessity for many projects and plans in your life. One of my most recent eBooks is ready and is posted in the upper left. It’s called Goal Planning for The Busy Woman and it is FREE when you sign up for my Newsletter. I took my time and wrote up simple steps for you to follow.
I can’t tell you what else I’ve been up to until Continue reading

Sometimes all you need is a nap.
When was the last time you took a nap? Sometimes when we hit a wall during the day a nap can rejuvenate you. Set a timer for 20 minutes and see how you feel after you wake up.
Elizabeth Scott, M.S. writes on about.com:
The Benefit of a Power Nap: Studies show that 20 minutes of sleep in the afternoon provides more rest than 20 minutes more sleep in the morning (though the last two hours of morning sleep have special benefits of their own).
I used to hate napping. But while burning the candles at both ends I learned that putting my head down on my desk for 15 minutes helped me be able to get through the rest of my day. Setting an alarm is a must. I still don’t like napping but sometimes I just have to do it. And it always proves worthwhile.

Laundry rooms come in all shapes and sizes. There is no “one” right way to organize your laundry room. So here are some laundry room organization tips to help you get started.

Use the other drawer for laundry soaps and/or other laundry needs, however I use mine for a trash can. It’s right near me, doesn’t show, and is very neat. Continue reading
