Looking for some friends to get me motivated

I have never been a very good housekeeper, but this is the worst my house has ever been.  In April of 2008 I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy.  I had the priviledge of staying home with him for the first 16 months of his life, but because of financial reasons I returned to work in August 2009.  I am a second grade school teacher.  After taking care of the baby and doing my school work it seems that there is no time left for my house work.  I used flylady in the past, but have gotten away from it.  I committed today to start again.  I am starting with day one in the baby steps.  Shine your sink.  I am looking for some Cafe Mom friends that will keep me accountable to follow the plan each day.

I'm also looking for someone to keep me accountable with the flylady missions. I am a sahm with a 5yo ds in kindergarten and a 21 month old ds.  My DH helps but he is now in a job where he travels more so I need to get on top of routines so the house doesn't drown in CHAOS.

Sure, as long as you reciprocate! We can keep each other on target... maybe this group should have a "daily Task" or something... don't you think?

I could use some myself- it's hard sometimes, but ya just gotta do it and get it over with.

Just seeing how everyone is doing with their cleaning/organizing challenges!

I was up really late cleaning because I found out I would be having company today.  This why I should NEVER let my house get so out of control.  Even with all the cleaning it still looked cluttered.
