Fly Lady Baby Steps
Get out of the clutter and chaos of life and simplify! Today the “Fly Lady” got us started with her first 5 steps.
From her website: She says, “We are going to quiet those negative voices that are beating you up constantly and replace them with a loving gentle voice that tells you that you are not behind and you can do this one BabyStep at a time!”
I know that you have become overwhelmed by your home and the chaos that you have been living in. We are here to help you and it doesn’t cost you a dime. Keep in mind that your home did not get this way overnight and it is not going to get clean in a day. We are going to teach you how to take BabySteps and establish little routines for getting rid of your clutter and maintaining your home. This system will work for anyone; it doesn’t matter if you work outside of your home, stay home with children, retired or work at home. You can do this, you have just needed someone to pat you on the back and give you a great big hug to get you started.
The voices that you hear in your head keep telling you that you are behind and you have to get it all done now! We are going to quiet those negative voices that are beating you up constantly and replace them with a loving gentle voice that tells you that you are not behind and you can do this one BabyStep at a time!
Please do not get impatient with the process. Everything we do is going to help you replace those voices that put you down. We are here to lift you up and celebrate every little accomplishment.
Here is a hug to get you started; We are with you every step of the way. Do not allow those voices to get you upset by the 15 -20 emails you get from us each day. We will help you to understand them over the next 31 days. Digital clutter is so easy to handle with your delete key. If only our household clutter was that easy to get rid of.
Your very first BabyStep is to go shine your sink. Don’t listen to those voices that tell you that is not going to help your messy house. This is exactly where I started and this little habit has changed my life! Take this BabyStep in faith and go do it. Here are the directions for shining your kitchen sink.
How to Have a Rockin’ Marriage
So did I tell you I’m in a Rock Band? Seriously, I’m learning to play the drums. My husband, Greg, plays the guitar. At night after Emily goes to sleep we practice in the basement and play gigs around the country. We got “RockBand” …the video game.
At night, we transform from geeky computer guy and mother of two to rockers who wear leather pants…in the game. IT’S DONE WONDERS FOR THE FUN IN OUR MARRIAGE.
It takes us into another world…far away from stock market blues a high pressure job, three year old tantrums and lack of sleep.
It’s expensive…but STILL CHEAPER THAN MARRIAGE COUNSELING. Ya gotta get Rock Band. Imagine what your hubby would say if you bring it up! Rock Band, The Beatles Edition is in stores today!
