If a messy house is a happy house,
My house seems overjoyed.
I live with a chronic illness,
So housework brings guilt I can’t avoid.
My ‘good’ hours are used up at work,
Spending my spoons to pay the bills,
When I get home…. there’s nothing left,
And sitting upright seems a worthy skill.
Note to readers: If spending spoons is new to you, google ‘spoon theory’ its a worthwhile read for anyone with a chronic illness.
