How Much Is Too Much?

movingboxesAfter months of packing and unpacking, we are finally getting settled. Don’t get me wrong, we still have boxes lined up along the walls, mail catching up to us at our new address and plenty of work to be done around the house. From sun up until sun down, I am keeping busy with something left to complete. With so much to be done, more than one person has raised an eyebrow at me worrying that I am doing too much. The fear of a looming MS attack keeps my loved ones on guard. I assure them I am fine but in reality, sometimes, I do bite off more than I should chew and I pay the price for it. They know this too and so when I am caught pulling weeds, cleaning for too many hours or lifting heavy things, eyebrows rise.
