Hi, I'm new to sparks but not flylady. I'm finding it difficult to manage my sparks account without spending too much time online. I'm a true SHE. Any suggestions. This is the first time I have ever used a forum also. And yes, I've been online for over 13 years, just kind of shy. I'm 47 and the mother of 5 plus 2 stepchildren, ages 14-35. Only the 14yr old still at home fulltime. Our next youngest is 21 and in college. My new years resolution was to come out of my shell and share myself, a.k.a. FLY.

Welcome to both. Have been here since 2006, and joined Flylady earlier the same year. Still working on clutter-physical(house) and body. The suprising thing is the mental clutter is going first! Gloria in OKC

And a bit more for tonight :-) Along with the room switching, I have been kicked out of my room. Not my bedroom but my sewing and craft room, which is way my daughter was able to get the two sewing tables for her room :-) So I am busy going through the boxes of things that my daughters packed, and I'm actually flinging things! I keep posting things on Freecycle. I think I won't need as much space for my items as my family thinks I will :-) Now I need to continue that flinging, and also start flinging some of the Body CLutter. I have too much of that, believe me :-( Thanks for listening :-)
A bit more of an intro - I am the mother of five living children, ages 6 to 22, all living at home except for the 20yo at college. We are in the process of switching rooms all around, giving the 6yo her own bedroom. We painting it pink on top and purple on the bottom half, pastel colors both, and then gave her a twin bed with princess covers. She absoliutely Loves it! Today we moved a sewing table into her rooom for her to use as a desk, and another one for a night stand. She is so proud of the room! And now that she isn't sharing with her 18 yo & 20 yo sisters, I "made an appoitment for the House Fairy to visit her :-) She is so looking forward to that, although she hasn't yet put away all her toys. I keep trying to help her do it, but she keeps pulling more out to play :-) I don't blame her, though - it is Her room!
