I've been working on my kitchen for the last two days. I clean my sink after every meal too. The only problem is that my dear grandparents and my dear brother are not falling in line. I woke up this morning to find the kitchen in complete disarray. Sugar was spilt all over the counter and nothing was put back. I cleaned it all up and carried on. I go to school full-time and work part-time. Keeping the house clean while my grandparents are visiting and when the rest of the family is not wanting to keep up.... seems almost impossible.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. ~ The Dalai Lama

That happens to me a lot as well. I try to wipe down my counters right after I shine my sink (helps that I have a very small kitchen). The shine from your sink will eventually spill out to the rest of the kitchen! Don't worry!

I'm working on keeping my sink shiny. Last night it was shiny but the rest of the kitchen was a mess. This morning I got up, went to the kitchen and felt depressed because of the mess but when I saw the sink I felt a lot happier!!

As we start a new year, thankfully Flylady is reminding us how we started as Flybabies. Many of us (and I have my hand raised as well) have slipped from our zones and routines, and the reminders can get us back on track.

There are four things every Flybaby starts out doing, and they are really the only things you must do every day:

1. Shine your sink. As the sink goes, so does the kitchen, and as the kitchen goes, so does the house.

2. Lay out your clothes for tomorrow. One less thing to worry about during the panic of our mornings.

3. Get dressed all the way to your shoes first thing. It's easier to lie around and not finish your to-do list for the day if you don't have on your shoes.

4. Declutter for 15 minutes a day. This one often snags me because I think of it in terms of the time instead of the job. "I have to declutter for 15 minutes" instead of "I'm going to tackle the junk drawer in the kitchen". If you find yourself in the same predicament, think of this as decluttering one small area of a room per day. You can often do this while waiting for something else (like making coffee).

We can do this one step at a time! Now take a break from the computer and go do these four things NOW! emoticon
