FLYing

Have you ever heard of a website that helps you get your house clean? Neither had I! In fact when I was first told about the website FLYlady.net I thought it was just to weird. However I read a few things on the website and now I think it’s fabulous! FLYlady helps you learn to FLY (Finally loving yourself). The first step in this long process (takes 28days to form a habit) is Shine your sink. You do this everyday. If your sink is shiny and clean then the rest of the kitchen tends to follow (gets clean) and if your Kitchen is clean it’s only a matter of time before the rest of your house gets clean. I personally have a hard time keeping on top of our house chores. It’s always been a struggle for me. However I cleaned our house good for a party we had here (for Olivia’s baby dedication) and decided I would keep our house in that order until Thanksgiving (by then I figured it’d be habit). I’ve done good… until this week.. The weekends always seem to get ahead of me, and this one is no exception. Actually I should be cleaning instead of blogging (but like I said it’s a fight for me). I love my house being clean. It’s just a matter of keeping it that way. And when there is something that you struggle with everyday you find you love yourself a little less when you fail at it. However this website helps you realize that your house doesn’t get messy over night (although with Kids it doesn’t take long), so you can’t make it completely spotless over night either. And even if you do it’ll just get messy again if you don’t keep on top of it.  I’m really enjoying FLYing, It makes me feel good. (sorry about the pun). My living room is chaos, and the kitchen needs tiding but with 15minutes (or less) in each and I’ll have them good as…they can be 🙂

If you feel like you could use a ‘pick-me-up’ in the FLYing department, check out the website. The trick is not to get stuck on the website and not get any FLYing in!

  1. I discovered the FLYlady website soon after Adora was born, and I found her ideas to be very helpful. It’s amazing how a shiny sink can make you feel so good. Another great tip of hers (I think it was hers) that has always stuck with me is that you might not have time to organize the whole kitchen (or whatever room) but it only takes five minutes to do one drawer.
