Heading down to spare room and move Christmas stuff from one cupboard to another and sort as I'm doing that.

Fun Night at our house tonight. Snacks and great conversation with some friends. Should be 7 of us catching up on what's been happening with each other for the past 4 weeks.


EVERYONE.

FRIDAY....



It is our last day in the bathroom and our "Other Room"
For the bathroom: TAKE A BUBBLE BATH or a luxurious shower and just take some time out for yourself! Have fun!



For the "Other Room" as you know I told you all to choose the one room in your home that needed the most work. For today go back in with another trash bag and toss, toss toss! Now I know you have tossed already but as you have made some progress I am willing to bet there is more there that can go out. Set your timer and just toss. You pick 5, 10 or 15 minutes, what ever you choose!
Have fun!



De-Clutter your Purse and Car Day/ Date Night

We use each Friday as our De-Clutter your Purse and Car day. This only takes a few minutes and saves us lots of time later. Without the candy wrappers, old receipts, and other trash in your purse, finding your car keys becomes a breeze! Removing all the clutter and trash from your car ensures that you wonít be hit by any UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) in the event of a crash. Set aside a few minutes just for these two tasks each Friday. Hereís a list of things to toss:

Old gum and candy wrappers
Soda bottles
Scraps of paper/old receipts
Drive thru bags and cups
Jackets/coats/shoes
Set your timer and get to it.


Friday is also Date Night. Relationships have to be nurtured. If not, you are going to wake up one day when the children are grown and not know the person you chose to spend your life with. It is up to us to make sure we grow together! Now donít think I am going to leave out you single people! We all have relationships! Some are marital and others are friendship. As for those friendships that you have let fall by the wayside because your home was too messy for people to come over, it is time to pick up the phone and just say hi!

Relationships are not just inanimate objects; they are made of people with feelings. When we open up our hearts and let someone else in, we become better people! We canít just ignore the relationship and expect it to stay the same. People need attention! You need attention! If you give it, it will come back to you! I promise.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST......

THURSDAY....



For the bathroom, take 10 minutes to toss old cosmetics and perfumes. If you have these items that you have not used for over a year but they are still hanging around, it is time to dump them. Most cosmetics have a limited shelf life and are harboring grounds for bacterias. This also applies to lotions and moisturizers.


For the other room: Again go in and spend 15 minutes just decluttering, have two trash bags, one for trash and one for give away. Just go in start tossing. You will be amazed at how much you can do in just 15 minutes.





We use this day to get out and run whatever errands we need to do for the week. Make a list of wherever you need to go and whatever you need to do during the day today and then get to it. This can include:

Grocery shopping
Doctor appointments
Dentist appointments
School shopping
Dropping the clothes off at the cleaner
And tons of other things. If it needs to be done outside the house, today is the day to do it. Make a list of these things and check them off as you do them.


LAST BUT NOT LEAST.....PAMPER YOURSELF

REMEMBER....


WEDNESDAY


For today in the bathroom: Scrub the tub! Take 5 minutes to really get that bathtub or shower scrubbed. Get the soap dish, the corners and the area around the drain sparkling. A sponge, an all purpose cleaner and some elbow grease will have your tub or shower shinning in minutes!


For the Other Room today: Start with a box or trash bag to put things in that you will give away to a charity or friends. These are the things that you know are in great condition and will be loved by others but it is just clutter to you. Fill one bag and take it to the trunk of your car. If you have the time to take it and donate it today then do so! Remember this week is the week that we are spending in the room that is our worst.






Anti-Procrastination Day

This is a day that we take care of things weíve been putting off. You can use this day to take care of any procrastinating youíve done. You can do things like:

Make doctors appointments
Finish that report for work
Work on a project with your child
Clean the fish tank
You can do whatever you need to take care. This is the day to stop putting things off.

ďProcrastination is the death of us, our relationships, and our peace!Ē

LAST BUT NOT LEAST......PAMPER YOUR FEET MONTH

This past weekend, DH & I undertook a garden project. We have such a long sun season and watering is a real task to manage so we created two Earth Buckets - self-watering planters which allow the plant to pull water as needed.

Rather than create a really long post with the details, I've included here a link to the steps.

We are the main bathroom and another room in the house. For this week you are to choose a room that is at its complete worst!


For the bathroom mission: Take a paper towel and a general purpose cleaner and clean behind the toilet! There are all kinds of things that gather back there on the floor and on the back of the toilet, how it gets there I am never quite clear on but it is there. Grab that cleaner, spray and wipe.



For the Other Room: Grab a trash bag and just toss! Don't worry about anything that needs to be picked up or moved, just whatever is visible that is trash, just toss it. Spend 15 minutes on this, you will be amazed at how fast you can fill a trash bag if you just do it.
Keep FLYing!





Daily Focus Tuesday

On Tuesdays, We take some time out to Plan our week. Planning means taking time to look at next week and see what we can do to make things easier for us during the next week. Here are some things we can do to plan:

Menu planning
Activities planning
Date Night and Family Fun Time planning
Wardrobe planning
Checking prescriptions to see what needs to be refilled
And anything else you might need to plan. There are tons of things we can do to save ourselves time later!


We also get to have lots of fun on Tuesdays. This is where the play part comes from. When our planning is finished, we get to go play! Spend the rest of the day doing something fun just for you. See that movie youíve been wanting to see, take a long bath with a good book, or get out and have some fun at the gym. Whatever makes you happy! This is all about you.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST....

The Bathroom and One Extra Room


This week we are in the Bathroom! Your mission is to grab a trash bag and do a 27 fling boogie in the bathroom!! For those of you that are new to us here at Flybaby, here is an explanation of a 27 fling boogie:
This is a tool to help you declutter your home. Do this assignment as fast as you can. Take a garbage bag and walk through your home and throw away 27 items. Do not stop until you have collected all 27 items. Then close the garbage bag and pitch it. DO NOT LOOK IN IT! Just do it. Next, take an empty box and go through your home collecting 27 items to give away. As soon as you finish filling the box, take it to the car. You are less tempted to rescue the items. If you have two of any item and you only need one, get rid of the least desirable.

For today, this applies to the Main bathroom of your home. This is a fast and easy way to declutter!







Weekly Home Blessing Hour

On Mondays we bless our home. No detailed cleaning required; vacuum the middle of the floors only! The time on this can depend on the size of your home, could take less than an hour or more than an hour but on average about an hour.

Vacuum
Dust
Quick Mop
Polish Mirrors and Doors
Purge magazines/catalogs
Change Sheets
Empty all trash cans

This takes approximately one hour; some tasks take less than 10 minutes.





This month's Habit is: Getting Dressed to Shoes
Welcome to a brand new week and a brand NEW Pamper Mission! Have you ever heard of "Winter Toes"? You know what I'm talking about... In Summer, us girls keep our toes freshly painted and buffed and ready to wear those sexy summer sandals. But, when Winter rolls around, we tend to skip the toes and think no one will see them because they are often covered up with boots and socks. Well, guess what! WE see them! Our hubbies see them! And who deserves a little bit of pampering? US!!

Why shoes? Especially lace-up shoes?

Put those shoes on your feet. Here is why. The reason behind this duty was that you act different when you have clothes and shoes on. You want to feel good about the way you look. Putting shoes on your feet that lace up are better than slip-ons or sandals, because they are harder to take off. Instead of kicking your shoes off for a quick snooze on the couch, you actually have to go to a bit more trouble. Maybe in that short instant you will realize that there is something more that you can do. With shoes on those feet of yours, your mind says ďOKĒ, itís time to go to work. You have no excuse for not taking the trash out or putting that box of give-away stuff into the car. You are literally ready for anything. Believe me, when you get that call from school that your child needs you, or that dear friend calls up and says that she needs to talk ďcan we have lunch?Ē you are ready! Including shoes.


Spend a few minutes today and give yourself a mini pedicure at home. Soak your feet in warm water for 15 minutes to soften them up, scrub at those dry cracked heels, push your cuticles back, do a quick polish, and slather on some lotion. Your feet will not only look much better, they'll feel much better and so will you! You deserve some pampering!

LAST BUT NOT LEAST.....

FRIDAY



We are in the last day of the kitchen zone!
Let's take a look at the cabinets. Take a few minutes to check them out, I bet you will see that they need a little sprucing up! Just wipe down the outside surfaces. You will be so surprised at what a difference shining those cabinets wil make!

There is no "right" way to do this. Depending on what your cabinets are made out of is what you will use to wipe the cabinets down. A wood soap, a general purpose cleaner, or just soap and water. A slightly damp cloth will work as well.
Don't obsess, BabySteps. Look around and see how your kitchen shines!



De-Clutter your Purse and Car day.

This only takes a few minutes and saves us lots of time later. Without the candy wrappers, old receipts, and other trash in your purse, finding your car keys becomes a breeze! Removing all the clutter and trash from your car ensures that you wonít be hit by any UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) in the event of a crash. Set aside a few minutes just for these two tasks each Friday. Hereís a list of things to toss:

Old gum and candy wrappers
Soda bottles
Scraps of paper/old receipts
Drive thru bags and cups
Jackets/coats/shoes
Set your timer and get to it.



Friday is also Date Night. Relationships have to be nurtured. If not, you are going to wake up one day when the children are grown and not know the person you chose to spend your life with. It is up to us to make sure we grow together! Now donít think I am going to leave out you single people! We all have relationships! Some are marital and others are friendship. As for those friendships that you have let fall by the wayside because your home was too messy for people to come over, it is time to pick up the phone and just say hi!

Relationships are not just inanimate objects; they are made of people with feelings. When we open up our hearts and let someone else in, we become better people! We canít just ignore the relationship and expect it to stay the same. People need attention! You need attention! If you give it, it will come back to you! I promise.






LAST BUT NOT LEAST....TAKE SOME

We are still tackling the kitchen this week!

This involves old toothbrushes and elbow grease. Yes you guessed it! Grab those toothbrushes and some general purpose cleaner and scrub those faucets on your kitchen sink. It is amazing how much gunk can build up around the seals and edges.

Have fun, this is a quick mission that shows instant results!





We use this day to get out and run whatever errands we need to do for the week. Make a list of wherever you need to go and whatever you need to do during the day today and then get to it. This can include:

And tons of other things. If it needs to be done outside the house, today is the day to do it. Make a list of these things and check them off as you do them.



PAMPER YOURSELF THIS MONTH AND TAKE CARE OF THOSE FEET...

WEDNESDAY



Let's take a close look at the gadgets and small appliances. The toaster, can opener, coffee maker, microwave etc. The small appliances that you use on a regular basis. When was the last time you cleaned out your toaster; opened up the bottom and dumped the crumbs? How dingy or dusty is your coffee maker? How about the outside of the microwave?
Wipe them down and make them shine. I am not telling you to drag out every small kitchen appliance you own and to scrub them. Just wipe down the fingerprints, dust, drips, dried food particles on the most used items. Make sure you unplug these items before you clean them!

Don't obsess, set your timer for 15 minutes and have fun!



Anti-Procrastination Day

his is a day that we take care of things weíve been putting off. You can use this day to take care of any procrastinating youíve done. You can do things like:



Make doctors appointments
Finish that report for work
Work on a project with your child
Clean the fish tank
You can do whatever you need to take care. This is the day to stop putting things off.


PAMPER YOURSELF THIS MONTH AND TAKE CARE OF THOSE FEET...

JUST A REMINDER....







Take 15 minutes and scrub your stove top. Soak the knobs and drip pans in hot soapy water while you clean the stove top. Some elbow grease and hot soapy water will take care of a lot. Don't become a perfectionist and try to get it as clean as the day it was new. Just do the best you can and then scrub the drip pans and knobs. Don't scrub the knobs so hard that the numbers and words scrub off!

Anything that you do will be better than what it was!





On Tuesdays, We take some time out to Plan our week. Planning means taking time to look at next week and see what we can do to make things easier for us during the next week. Here are some things we can do to plan:



Menu planning
Activities planning
Date Night and Family Fun Time planning
Wardrobe planning
Checking prescriptions to see what needs to be refilled
And anything else you might need to plan. There are tons of things we can do to save ourselves time later!


We also get to have lots of fun on Tuesdays. This is where the play part comes from. When our planning is finished, we get to go play! Spend the rest of the day doing something fun just for you. See that movie youíve been wanting to see, take a long bath with a good book, or get out and have some fun at the gym. Whatever makes you happy! This is all about you.



NEW Pamper Mission for this month is! Have you ever heard of "Winter Toes"? You know what I'm talking about... In Summer, us girls keep our toes freshly painted and buffed and ready to wear those sexy summer sandals. But, when Winter rolls around, we tend to skip the toes and think no one will see them because they are often covered up with boots and socks. Well, guess what! WE see them! Our hubbies see them! And who deserves a little bit of pampering? US!!

Spend a few minutes today and give yourself a mini pedicure at home. Soak your feet in warm water for 15 minutes to soften them up, scrub at those dry cracked heels, push your cuticles back, do a quick polish, and slather on some lotion. Your feet will not only look much better, they'll feel much better and so will you! You deserve some pampering!



LAST BUT NOT LEAST.....

Your mission for today is....

To Scrub down your counter tops,and I don't mean to just wipe a rag across them. You should get some hot soapy water and you wipe down the counters from front to back and side to side. Yes, you have to move the stuff on the counters to do this. DON'T take everything off at one time and then plan to put it all back again, I promise you will get sidetracked. You just move your toaster, coffee pot, or whatever is there over to one side and wipe down the counter. Then move over a foot or so, move aside what is there and wipe down some more and so on. We are not marathon cleaning the kitchen here, just getting all the crumbs and junk that seems to build up behind and under things.

Don't obsess, BabySteps!






Weekly Home Blessing Hour

On Mondays we take time to bless our home. No detailed cleaning required; vacuum the middle of the floors only! The time on this can depend on the size of your home, could take less than an hour or more than an hour but on average about an hour.

Set your timer for 10 minutes to work on each of 7 ways to bless your home:

Vacuum
Dust
Quick Mop
Polish Mirrors and Doors
Purge magazines/catalogs
Change Sheets
Empty all trash cans

DUSTYPAIRIE, I love Epsom salt and eucalyptus. It refreshes so nice.

There's nothing wrong with using the word "diet". It comes from the Greek word "diaita", meaning way of life. So to lose weight and keep it off we need to change our way of life.

One sector at a time I am going to clean around the perimeter of the fence. This afternoon I'm going to work on another special meal for dh. While it cooks I'm giving myself a pedi in a foot bath of Epsom salts and lavender.

A goal without a plan is just a wish.
