Starting From Scratch.

One thing that I love about Flylady is her premise that you're never behind.

I need to keep reminding myself that as it becomes more apparent how many things I have let slide the last couple of weeks.

Our family calendar fell down two weeks ago and I still haven't gotten around to nailing it back up. Constantly reminding yourself of dentist appointments and early school pick ups is not the way to stay organized. Something is bound to fall in the cracks.

I have gotten the dirty dishes in the sink under control again but now it's time to bleach and scrub it so it get shiny and motivates me.

The grocery circulars and coupon piles are calling me and I'm trying to ignore them. Is it worth my time to get one or two cheap/free things from a few stores when I don't really need the items right now? I know I could donate them but they will be in my way until I get around to going to the pantry drop off in a month or two.

What do I tackle first?

I so hear you! I love the fly lady and shiny sinks. This morning I had the exact same thought - where to start? Making my bed and taking a shower was a big help. :)

I too am in a place of overwhelming tasks and 'to dos'. I just can't seem to get my head above water.

Hang in there!

I personally don't like FlyLady, though I know many people do. Not that she doesn't have some great strategies and ideas - I just don't like her personality or her methods of relating to people.

That said, I think her idea to just do one small thing - like the shiny sink- to get motivated is a good one. I find that I feel motivated when I make my bed. It makes the whole room look neater!
