I had to smile (in sympathy) about your sciatica during the last of your pregnancy and having to use a cane, because that's exactly what I went through in my 2nd pregnancy, in 1996. Except for my sciatica started about 5 months into the pregnancy! I was teaching at the time and had to limp into my classroom with my cane like an old lady. It continued afterwards too, but many visits to the acupuncturist really helped, especially when she heated the needles. AAAAh--the relief. I don't think I actually caught up with the cleaning up and decluttering until just a few weeks ago, with this move. Took me 9 years. It's weird that I had no sciatica at all with my third pregnancy at age 41. (it only returned after he was born and I was carrying him around all the time).
Happy decluttering, everyone! Now I have to go and pack some more boxes!
Kathleen E, soon to be back in my home state of CA!
