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.

Hahah, I think that would be okay then. After all, no-one could deny that you're dressed to go out! :D

And WAH, I'm pushing too hard with this decluttering thing and I know that I'm going to burn out if I don't pull back a little and focus on developing sustainable habits rather than getting everything done quickly. I always do this; tell me I can let go of perfectionism and get it done slowly!

I know what you mean about pushing too hard; I do that too. Sometimes I figure that if I'm in the mood and have the energy to do it, I should just really go for it, since I never know when that motivated feeling will come again (One of my favorite times to do housework is in the middle of the night; sometimes when I can't sleep and start obsessing about the house - thinking what would happen if social services turned up at the door in the morning :D - I'll just get up and vacuum the stairs, or declutter a whole room, or whatever). Afterwards, I'm not sure if I burn out from too much activity, or if I'd have just gotten tired/bored with it anyway, but at least I got something done.

Heh. Yeah, probably pacing myself would be better. (Although I still do like my late-night cleaning binges). The perfectionism is not a good thing for us, though, is it? So far, I think I'm doing all right with going slowly. Of course, I'm only on Day three of FlyLady. :)
