    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Office chair with wheels

    I have started to use the office chair from my computer area to sit in when I unload the dishwasher and when I sort laundry. That way I don't have to squat or stay bent over. I can just scoot the chair back and forth to move things from one area to another. At first I thought I was just being lazy but I have less pain doing things this way and I don't get as tired. I hate the idea that loading and unloading the dishwasher wipes me out,but that's how it is.

    I like your idea. I use a step stool to sit and use my front-loading washer/dryer. Bending over, and especially squating, are hard on us.

    NICE IDEA!

    My kitchen chairs are on wheels and my husband used it to help clean the frisge...and then I took the idea. You are at just the right height to SEE what you need and little bending involved.

    OH thank you for a new tool for the fmily......good idea for us to try as well.

    Thanks again.....Nancy B
