So I have been using FlyLAdy to build a new routine to clean with. Who am I kidding. I hate to clean, I am building my first routine of keeping house. I hate to keep house. I work so hard and it feels like I am running in circles and getting nothing accomplished. Well, I decided to try FlyLady. Well, my kitchen is very quickly coming together pretty and clean.
Just to recap, I did clean my sink on the first day, but this was my counters. And there was nothing special about that day, this was my counters everyday.
suddenly, my kitchen is feeling spacious. I take up the whole counter when I make dinner now, because I have the entire counter to use. I am not getting stressed when the kids bring their bowls to the sink, because there is space to put them. So what if food gets on the counter, I am going to clean it off no matter what.
What I am liking about FLY LADY:
First, it is not “go clean your house and then keep it up”. Her way is start a routine a little at a time and before you know it, your house will be sparkling. My attitude has always been to exhaust myself and scream as I would try and deep clean a cluttered house, then be exhausted and never keep it up or get back to it.
Second, you start with manageable accomplishments and somehow I always do a little more.
Third, I have been working hard but the good kind of hard. I put in 100% and got 100% accomplished. Usually, I feel like I put 100% towards my goals and got 10% accomplished because I was moving with no direction and just mostly chasing my tail everyday around this house.
I like the smell of bleach and never knew it. I can’t believe how good my reflection looks in my sink. I didn’t know a toilet could be pretty. I love the look of shock when my husband comes home.
