Doing Projects with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia

If you are wondering how I accomplish projects around the house when I have CFS and FM, I thought I would show you.

For this project, I was making a coat rack out of an old window.

 

The first week I washed them in the tub since they had been outside for a long time.

Then I painted them outside. I forgot to take an after picture but you can see it in the next one.

Then the next week, I started by cutting the wood for the back.

Then I sat down and had a cup of tea.

Then I painted the front side. You can see the window I had already painted the week before in the background.

Then I went inside and had a cup of tea.

Then I put the back on the window and brought it in to hang on the wall.

Then I laid down to have a cup of tea.

So it’s Tea. That’s how I get so much done! hehehe

I got the thing hung on the wall but after I got it up there I hated the way it looked so I am going to have to find something else to do with my “purple window almost a coat rack” project. :-)

BTW, just so I don’t get any emails. I made one pot of tea with one tea bag that gave me 3-4 “cups” of tea. :-)

PS. For those of us who are older and wiser and have CFS we just stick a couple of hooks in the wall then spend the rest of the day drinking our tea with our feet up. : ) : )
