Flylady. Ever since I was kid doing house work... it was always done on Saturday... ALL DAY SATURDAY... which didn't leave much time for anything fun. As a kid... that was awful... as an adult... I don't know why but I kept up the same routine.... but still hated it. When I got married and had Rainee... and working full time... it seemed the only time to do it, but now being home.... I have gotten out of the all-day-Saturday-cleaning-habit. But along with getting out of the habit I knew I needed some kind of routine... but I hadn't found anything that clicked with me... until several weeks ago when I stumbled across Flylady and it's been fun reading and learning how to make the most of my household chores and my time.
When I first read it I thought... cute... it's all about baby steps... but, then decided to try it. The first thing she has you do is to keep your kitchen sink shining.... it was so simple... I had to try it. Then you add things... it's really been interesting and fun. I haven't ever really enjoyed housework... but I do have to say... she has made me think of things in a different way and at the end of the week when Saturday comes around... I'm not cleaning... because everything is already done.
It's changed my way of doing things and changed the way I look my household tasks. I've wanted my housecleaning routine to be something easy, I wanted to feel good about it and I didn't want it to take up my whole Saturday to do it.... So, I am so grateful I stumbled across Flylady.... I'm grateful for her FLYing Lessons that have given me baby steps to help me with my routine... and helped me with putting my home in order. I'm grateful for the simplicity and balance it's put in my household routine. I love getting my FLYing lessons and I love FlyLady!!! I am so grateful.
So, out of curiosity, where are you with housecleaning? Do you follow a routine? Has Flylady help you??? Or are you still trying to find a good routine???
