Helen, Have you ever noticed, too...that the minute you feel well enough to do a couple of things...that everyone assumes..."Oh...if she did that she must be O.K.", and then they seem to expect more? IE: Well, if she worked 8 hours, vacuumed, dusted, and cleaned the bathroom...then she'll cook dinner, do the dishes, and sweep the floors, too...and we'll watch t.v. I don't have kids...I have a husband..he's one "big" kid...doesn't cook, doesn't clean until yelled at, thinks he's the guy from "This Old House" when he's more like Tim Allen, thinks he knows everything, throws temper tantrums, procrastinates, hides his dirty clothes in the closet till they're 3' high, and whines when you ask him to do something. But, I love him because I can say anything to him, he's my best friend. And he's stood by me when many people "just can't deal" is funny that way...don't you think?
