I am amazed at the things I have been able to do without help. I've always had to fend for myself---even when another was around--he wasn't around much---preferred working to being at home. So I tried to do most things myself---but on occasion-I would wait until the man of the house came home to help me.
NOW--there is no other to help---so I have to figure out how to do it myself---move heavy furniture----pick up heavy things---(does sometimes result in back problems)--you name it---I have to do it alone now.
Today I had to get a 10' rug into my Camry----bring it home--unload it---man (or woman) handle it into the house--unroll it--and get it on the floor.
Perhaps it is true--"Where there's a will there's a way"!
