wysiwyg De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life 2019 - 2020 (1850* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019 02 Jul 19

There's a hot tip buried in the following report on the day.

Today the focus with Yano Becky was the BR. We gathered dirty laundry and sorted pillows brought in from the garage, and changed a bunch of pillowcases. Three old, nasty pillows were allocated to the kennel closet, a few to the camper, a few to the travel pillow bag, and a few to the bed (including one that had gone missing way back in MudDorm days), which happened to end up in the pillow case it was wearing when I first acquired it-- a sentimental item from a dearly loved elder.

We also augmented mattress padding in a key area that has caused my lumbar back issues to flare up recently. I can't be doing back PT in the daytime and then undoing it all night because of poor sleep posture; I can't expect PT-pushed muscles to heal with deep sleep-- if night pain is precluding deep sleep.

I also remade two orthopedic pillows a few nights ago, and redid one this AM for even better support.

We cleared the 2' tall pile of once-worn clothes off the top of my dresser, and I put away a hamper full of other clean laundry. *Later, Greg?? put up some closet hooks for my everyday cotton seersucker or poplin shirts, which will hopefully prevent that buildup from restarting. In the space where those-- and huge towels-- accumulate, I set a large object Greg had left out as floor clutter, to take up the dressers open space so I break that habit.

I had a fresh lumbar spine x-ray today, and already have the report... much worse than I thought, making the PT even more essential.

The images were done without the continuous pelvic tilt I'm conditioning towards, so I know that the alignment when I walk with that tilt is better than when I don't, but it is a sobering report.

* The hot tip-- Instead of closet doors, we have floor to ceiling drapes. They are situated where the closet doors were, now, but there is room to move them forward, making the closet much deeper. Right now the new hooks (and the items on them) are outside those drapes, but soon the drapes will cover them. One of the former housemates showed me the trick of putting a hook right on the molding that trimmed these closets' sliders, but adding depth by moving the drapes is all mine.
