I was brought up well. I was taught manners and grooming, responsibility and morals. I graduated as an honor student, went to college and got a Bachelor’s degree. And then I went to graduate school and got a Doctorate in Chiropractic. I studied hard, worked hard, learned a lot. I’m no brain surgeon, but I consider myself a fairly intelligent, hard working person.
So, when it came to cooking and cleaning my home, staying on top of things, I figured I could handle it.
I repeat. HA HA.
After a few years of floundering around, feeling like a failure because I couldn’t manage my home, I found Flylady.net.
Flylady is an online coach/fairy godmother who lovingly nudges you with very specific instructions that are easy to follow. And if you follow them, you can have a peaceful home with everything in order. No more CHAOS (Can’t Have Anybody Over Syndrome).
Now, I’m not new to the Flylady system. I’ve been “using” it for a few years now. I put “using” in quotes, because although I’ve learned a ton and made many changes, there are a few things I just haven’t made habits yet. Things that really are preventing me from having the peace I want in my home.
A few of my friends on twitter have decided to begin again with Flylady. And I’m joining in. It begins with the Beginner’s Babysteps.
Step 1 is to Go Shine Your Kitchen Sink. If you want to know why, you’re better off checking out the source.
I’m glad that I can start again, at any point. Taking babysteps is something that I know Works For Me.
If you want to jump in and join us, let me know! Leave a comment!
I’ll be posting the daily baby step assignment as well as my progress. Stay tuned for pictures of my shiny sink!
