I'm "trying" not to carry my backpack so much. It amazes me that so little can put so much strain on my tummy muscles. Just about everything one does will include the stomach muscles. This weekend I promised to take it easier.
John is very willing to lift this or that for me, but I often don't have the patience to wait until he can do it for me. I did have a cleaning person come today, but getting things clear so she could clean was part of the problem.
