You have to say the title like Steve Urkel.
This is the post where those of you who would call me friend snub your nose at the disgusting-ness that is my home and life. I am one of the most disorganized people you may ever meet.
My neighbors might think I'm a nut job because I will load everyone up in the van, remember something, go back in the house to get it, pull out of the driveway, loop back around the block because I forgot something else. Pull in, run in and get it, drive away. Two miles down the road remember that I forgot one more thing.
I have joined and rejoined FlyLady so many times it's pathetic. And just this week I found my box of chore cards I made in 2003 to follow the Sidetracked Home Executive plan.
All this to say I had a VERY good day in the organization department. FlyLady talks about a launch pad where you put your purse, cell, keys, etc. So last night I laid everything out. I had to go to my church today to help with something, I knew what time we had to leave in order to get there on time. We ate lunch and left in time (those two things alone are as near a miracle as it will get - on time AND fed? Egads!)
I remembered to take everything I needed, I returned a rebounder I had borrowed, on the way home I picked up pizzas to bake for dinner, dropped off shoes for donation, dropped offclothes to goodwill that I've had in the back of my van for months, and returned library books (albeit overdue). I just couldn't believe myself.
I did put a video to return to the store in the van but forgot to return it (maybe I need to make a list?) But I was tickled pink. My children were unimpressed with the number of stops we had to make but they have no idea how free their momma feels!
I am going to revamp my chore cards this weekend and jump in with both feet on Monday. I have actually done all the laundry I was supposed to do this week, and all the things my husband asked me to do too. I think I might get it this time!
