Energy Saving House Keeping Tips For Fibromites

You're getting company in 30 minutes. Your house is a mess. WHAT WILL YOU DO?

If a room clearly can't be whipped into shape in 30 days--much less 30
minutes--employ the Locked Door Method of cleaning. Tell anyone who tries to go in the room that the door is intentionally locked.  CAUTION: It is
not advisable to use this tip for the bathroom.
Time: 2 seconds

No home should be without an ample supply. Not only is it handy for
plumbing repairs, but it's a great way to hem drapes, tablecloths, clothes,
just about anything.  No muss, no fuss.
Time: 2-3 minutes

If you think ovens are just for baking, think again.  Ovens represent at
least 9 cubic feet of hidden storage space, which means they're a great
place to shove dirty dishes, dirty clothes, or just about anything you want
to get out of sight when company's coming.
Time: 2 minutes

Like Secret Tip 3, except bigger. CAUTION: Avoid hiding flammable objects
Time: 2.5 minutes

Like Secret Tip 4, except even bigger.
Time: 3 minutes

No bed should be without one. Normal people believe dust ruffles exist to
keep dust out from under a bed or to help coordinate the colorful look of a
bedroom. The rest of us know a dust ruffle's highest and best use is to
hide whatever you've managed to shove under the bed.
(Refer to Secret Tips 3, 4, 5.)
Time: 4 minutes

The 30-Minutes-To-A-Clean-House method says: Never dust under what you can dust around.
Time: 3 minutes

Don't use them. Use plastic or paper and you won't have to.
Time: 1 minute

This secret tip is brought to you by an inventive teenager.  When this
teen's mother went on a housekeeping strike for a month, the teen
discovered you can extend the life of your underwear by two ...if you turn
it wrong side out and, yes, rerun it.   CAUTION: This tip is recommended
only for teens and those who don't care if they get in a car wreck.
Time: 3 seconds

If an article of clothing doesn't require a full press and your hair does,
a curling iron is the answer. In between curling your hair, use the hot
wand to iron minor wrinkles out of your clothes. Yes, it really does work,
or so I'm told.
Time: 5 minutes (including curling your hair)

Stick to the middle of the room, which is the only place people look.
Don't bother vacuuming under furniture. It takes way too long and no one
looks there anyway.
Time: 5 minutes, entire house; 2 minutes, living room only

The key here is low, low, and lower. It's not only romantic, but bad
lighting can hide a multitude of dirt.
Time: 10 seconds

Get an old-fashioned waterbed. No one can tell if those things are made up
or not, saving you, oh, hundreds of seconds over the course of a lifetime.
Time: 0

Forget one and two. Concentrate on three.
Time: 1 minute

My Exercise Diary
 For my birthday this year my wife purchased me a week of private lessons at the local health club.  Though still in great shape form when I as on the varsity chess team in high school, I decided it was a good idea to go ahead
 and try it. I called and made reservations with someone named Tanya, who said she is a 26-year-old aerobics instructor and athletic clothing model. My wife seem very pleased with how enthusiastic I was to get started.
 They suggested I keep an "exercise diary" to chart my progress.
 DAY 1
 Started the morning at 6:00 AM.  Tough to get up, but worth it when I arrived at the health club and Tanya was waiting for me.  She's something of a goddess, with blond hair and a dazzling white smile.  She showed me the machines and took my pulse after five minutes on the treadmill.  She seemed a little alarmed that it was so high, but I thing just standing next to her in that outfit of hers added about ten points.  Enjoyed watching the aerobics class. Tanya was very encouraging as I did my sit ups, though my gut was already aching a little form holding it in the whole time I was talking to her.  This is going to be GREAT.
 DAY 2
 Took a whole pot of coffee to get me out the door, but I made it.  Tanya had me lie on my back and push this heavy iron bar up into the air.  Then she put weights on it, for heaven's sake!! Legs were a little wobbly on the treadmill, but I made it the full mile.  Her smile made it all worth while. Muscles ALL feel GREAT.
 DAY 3
 The only way I can brush my teeth is by laying the tooth brush on the counter and moving my head back and forth over it.  I am certain that I have developed a hernia in both pectorals.  Driving was OK as long as I didn't try to steer.  I parked on top of a Volkswagen.  Tanya was a little impatient with me and said my screaming was bothering the other club members.  The treadmill hurt my chest so I did the stair monster.  Why would anyone invent a machine to simulate an activity rendered obsolete by the invention of elevators?  Tanya told me regular exercise would make me live longer.  I can't imagine anything worse.
 DAY 4
 Tanya was waiting for me with her vampire teeth in a full snarl.  I can't help it if I was half an hour late, it took me that long just to tie my shoes.  She wanted me to lift dumbbells.  Not a chance, Tanya.  The word "dumb" must be there for a reason.  I hid in the men's room until she sent Lars looking for me. As punishment she made me try the rowing machine.  It sank.
 DAY 5
 I hate Tanya more than any human being has ever hated any other human being in the history of the world.  If there was any part of my body not in extreme pain I would hit her with it.  She thought it would be a good idea to work on my triceps.  Well I have news for you Tanya - I don't have triceps.  And if you don't want dents in the floor don't hand me any barbells.  I refuse to accept responsibility for the damage,  YOU went to sadist school, YOU are to blame. The treadmill flung me back into a science teacher, which hurt like crazy. Why couldn't it have been someone softer, like a music teacher, or social studies?
 DAY 6
 Got Tanya's message on my answering machine, wondering where I am.  I lacked the strength to use the TV remote so I watched eleven straight hours of the Weather Channel.
 DAY 7
 Well, that's the week. Thank goodness that's over. Maybe next time my wife will give me something a little more fun, like a gift certificate for a root canal.

DISCOMFORT. Involvement with the patient's suffering might cause him to lose valuable scientific objectivity.

2. BE CHEERFUL AT ALL TIMES. Your doctor leads a busy
and trying life and requires all the gentleness and reassurance he can get.

3. TRY TO SUFFER FROM THE DISEASE FOR WHICH YOU ARE BEING TREATED. Remember that your doctor has a professional reputation to uphold.

4. DO NOT COMPLAIN IF THE TREATMENT FAILS TO BRING RELIEF. You must believe that your doctor has achieved a deep insight into the true nature of your illness, which transcends any mere permanent disability you may have experienced.

5. NEVER ASK YOUR DOCTOR TO EXPLAIN WHAT HE IS DOING OR WHY HE IS DOING IT. It is presumptuous to assume that such profound matters could be explained in terms that you would understand.

6. SUBMIT TO NOVEL EXPERIMENTAL TREATMENT READILY. Though the surgery may not benefit you directly, the resulting research paper will surely be of widespread interest.

7. PAY YOUR MEDICAL BILLS PROMPTLY AND WILLINGLY. You should consider it a privilege to contribute, however modestly, to the well-being of physicians and other humanitarians.

8. DO NOT SUFFER FROM AILMENTS THAT YOU CANNOT AFFORD. It is sheer arrogance to contract illnesses that are beyond your means.

9. NEVER REVEAL ANY OF THE SHORTCOMINGS THAT HAVE COME TO LIGHT IN THE COURSE OF TREATMENT BY YOUR DOCTOR. The patient-doctor relationship is a privileged one, and you have a sacred duty to protect him from exposure.

10. NEVER DIE WHILE IN YOUR DOCTOR'S PRESENCE OR UNDER HIS DIRECT CARE. This will only cause him needless inconvenience and embarrassment.
