Followup on the FlyLady ( organization guru)

So ladies..I have been following the fly lady for weeks now and I gotta admit I am a slow learner...LOL.   I am however getting great pleasure from the " shine your sink" part. Which is a small first step or jumping off point for beginners like me. 

I liked the feeling of waking up to a shiny sink so much that I thought maybe I shoud take another baby step... so I started leaving myself notes on the bathroom mirror at night...  most times it is just an affirmation and if needed a reminder.  So far so good... Rick is somewhat puzzled about the notes but hey... they have nothing to do with him.

So I decided to purchase a copy of her control journal and take it with me on vacation so I can work on it while I am laying on the beach.  I got it in the mail yesterday and it is really nice.  There are parts that do not apply to me since I have no little ones, but all in all it is an awesome guide to having it all together.  Breaking cleaning down into zones, and creating and implementing morning , afternoon, and bedtime routines that are on paper untl you can get the hang of them.  I think my favorite thing is that everywhere along the way she includes ME time.  It is a very self caring plan and pushes you to love yourself along the way to making your life a little easier.  Since she asks you on the very first page NOT to become obsessive or push yourself to get through the whole thing at a fast pace. I thought taking it with me to the beach will give me ample time to relax and take small stabs at it. 

I will post as I progress to share my experience.

 I kind of have the same philosophy when it comes to house work.  I tackle it in bits. I used to be able to clean the house entirely in one day, but I don't even attempt that anymore.
