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.

I don't get the shoes either. I always walk around barefoot at home, or maybe with socks, but never shoes. They are dirty, everybody has to take off their shoes as soon as the come inside the flat, everybody does that in Switzerland...

But my sink shines away ;-)

Yeah, I hate shoes in the house, too - they just track dirt in! (Although at least here, we've walked through a lot of carpeted hallway before getting to our apartment, so at least the shoes are dry before we get here). I read something on her site once that said you should always wear shoes in case of an emergency - what if your kid breaks his arm, and you're late getting him to the hospital because you can't find a pair of shoes? Um, okay, so I guess I can see that some people might have trouble with this. BUT, I'm not too worried that I can't find a pair of shoes in an emergency. :D I might stick a pair of sandals right by the door and leave them there, just in case, so I know there's always a pair handy. :D

all my shoes ARE right next to the entrance. There might be a slight chaose sometimes, but not in the way that I wouldn't find a pair in a nanosecond if I had to.
