Remember my Journal post awhile back? "Archangel Jophiel; Clear Your Space"? Well, that was just the beginning of my desire to get the clutter out of my home. I must admit, it has become somewhat of an obsession. As if I am being driven by unseen forces to finally get myself & my home organized! I've never been this motivated for this long about cleaning house, so something must be behind this insane urge. I've felt "stuck" for such a long time.... and my spirit is telling me that once I get organized, clear out the clutter, and retrain myself on how to keep it that way, I'll finally be able to move forward. So I re-started the FlyLady thing. Right now I'm on day 17 of BabySteps! If you don't know what FlyLady is, you can check it out here; http://www.flylady.net/ or stop by the group here on CM, "Fluttering Flybabies". I am mostly posting this journal for my own personal reference, just a place to check in and remind myself of the routines I'm trying to establish for myself. So here is my "Control Journal" for now (Subject to change as I add things as I go along!!)

*note * ~ To some people, this may seem like simple, mundane, everyday stuff. It's true, it is. But I am not one of those people to whom the domestic housewife stuff comes easily. I am a working mom of three kids, with a busy social life and lots of projects and goals. I am simply trying to train myself to keep a routine and make this stuff a part of my daily life... to keep the clutter & chores from building up and becoming a source of stress for me.
