    Hi I am a disabled old gal, who moved into a beautiful place and got some rooms figured out a little then disaster struck, my hubby had both knees replaced and I broke my foot and have had 2 surgeries and have been on no weight bearing for over a year. How do i get this house into a home? Any idea?
