Try FlyLady for 43 Days

I’m going to try using the FlyLady system and see how it works. I tried it once before, about a year ago (maybe more), but I just wasn’t ready. That house was too overwhelming. Here, for the first time in ages, I feel like I’m really close to getting control over my messy house, and maybe FlyLady can help me. So, I’m going to follow the program for 43 days, and see how it works.

I’ve already started. I signed up for her notices, and my sink is SHINY! (I even used dental floss. No kidding). So, I guess I’m off to a good start. That makes today, September 7, Day 1.

FlyLady Day 2 - STYMIED by SHOES! ;)

Well, it’s day two, and already I have FAILED! ;) Okay, not really . . . but day two is “Get Dressed to Lace-up Shoes,” and a quick look in my closet confirmed what I suspected when I read this. I don’t HAVE any lace-up shoes! (I think I do own a pair or two, but they’re in California). Bwahahahahaha! I live in flip-flops most of the summer, and the rest of my shoes are slip-ons, except for one pair with buckles (and I’m not wearing those today; they’re purple velvet heels, and not appropriate for today’s activities). In any case, I really don’t like wearing shoes around the house, so I’ll probably ignore the “shoes” part of this in the future. But for today, I did put on my “realest” shoes (they have velcro straps, which is not at all as geeky as it sounds).

The good news is that my sink is still beautiful AND Connor even put his own dishes in the dishwasher after breakfast, instead of just dumping them somewhere random in the kitchen. Plus, laundry is being done. So, YAY! So far, so good.
