Thanks!

The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.

Good for you Shelly!

I have only been flying for a couple weeks too. It is great. I feel as if I am so empowered. My energy goes toward making positive changes rather than lamenting the problems and woes of my home. The whole house feels different!

I even made my bed this morning!

Happy Easter!

Did whb on rooms that are usable. Which is good. They are staying in great shape. I have also done the zone missions last week and this week. I had never done them before. Too many excuses of no time and room is too big a mess...you know the list. lol But started doing them last week and WOW!! Those little things really do add up, and they make you feel a whole lot better.

I'm looking forward to a an Ipod in a couple weeks.

Flylady's emphasis on routines and bite sized chunks has really helped me. This week it is beginning to add up.

I did home blessing last week. Today I did about half of my second home blessing. The bathroom is really looking good after the second time around.

My car is now clean. The living room is well on its way to being a place to be proud of. I've been working in other areas too.

I didn't learn much about routines or maintaining a home growing up. Well, 55 year olds can still learn new tricks!

Woohoo!

I tried this today only I modified my to do list and it worked great. I couldn't believe how spiffy my kitchen/bathroom/family room looked in such a short amount of time/ Focusing on one thing at a time really kept me on task! emoticon

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday was my first home blessing. I changed the bed, got trash out, vacuumed and especially cleaned the bathroom floor.

I discovered a really neat way to clean an old fashioned floor register with the old fashioned louvers that adjust. An old toothbrush did a pretty good job reaching up and around onto the little ledges inside. It still had dusty gunk in places where I couldn't reach.

I took it into my living room when the timer rang and took a little break to think about it. Then the idea of using canned duster spray to blow the dust out. It did a FANTASTIC job!

I can hardly wait for the next blessing when I will get to see my efforts multiply.

Hugs to all!

Saturday morning. I have looked at my schedule, rearranged things, re-rearranged things, re-prioritized and re-rearranged some more...and I keep coming back to this being the best time for me to bless my house.

I know Saturday is supposed to be Family Fun Day, but we payroll SHEs have to make adjustments. My house blessing usually takes about 90 minutes, so I will still be able to fit family time in Saturday and Sunday.

Write on!


Won't I look good in my publicity photos when I am the leanest, meanest, most agile writing machine I can possibly be?

Today I vacuumed the living room with the roomba and routines. We went out today so didn't get much else done. Actually we pretty much go somewhere every day.

I usually do most of this on Tuesday morning, because I work late. This week I split it between Monday night and Tuesday morning, and that actually worked better. (I call it my Rock and Roll hour, LOL). I also do a shortened version of it on Friday (a very very quick dusting, lighting fast vacuuming, and what I call the "5/10 per room" method. That way the house looks good, and I don't feel guilty about enjoying myself.

Okay, so I had to research to figure out exactly what the weekly home blessing hour was and now I will post that I have already done the following over the past two days (Sun/Mon):

vacuumed all acccessible areas...not under furniture or boxes.
Put away laundry that had been packed.
Unpacked and shelved all books.
Washed all dishes. Cleaned stovetop, sinks, and counters.
Swept kitchen.
Put away miscellaneous toiletries (extra shampoos and stuff) then cleaned mirror, counter, and sink.
Organized majority of craft stuff (scrapbooking items, sewing items).
Made space on closet shelf for the games/puzzles that were piled in hallway.
Made a donation box which is now overflowing.
Helped son with homework and extra credit assignments.
Made bed.
Removed boxes that are still packed from bedroom and put in living room where they are more likely to get unpacked since I have to look at them every day and they are an eyesore.
Matched all mismatched socks and put in sock drawer.

It took more than an hour, and I still put forth a couple hours a day on the unpacking endeavor, but it's worth it. Not only am I unpacking my stuff, but I am also donating things I don't need, and making room for my boyfriend's things which are being moved in starting next week when he returns from DC.

Whew! I'm exhausted just reading my list! hahahaha
