I can't find the Fly Lady anywhere!

It seems like once things start to slow down or the end is in sight - something big comes along to keep things - well - somewhat crazy. So, the new BIG thing I am talking about is the PTO. I have belonged to the PTO for quite some time and have managed to always have some menial job on the board, like newsletter editor, popcorn person, yearbook helper or - well you get the picture. As of yesterday, I am now the PTO President for the coming school year. I do have some ideas and things are already in gear for the coming year.

When I told Sixbits the news - the first thing he said (yes, even before congratulations) was "What are you gonna give up, besides dishes and laundry?" What a crack-up, huh?!

Here is the deal, in order to keep sanity and empty laundry hampers, I am gonna have to be super organized. Which is where Fly Lady comes in. You have to check her out. She has such amazing advice and practical steps for not only organizing your house but your life as well. I know I can find her on the web and that isn't the problem. She is lost somewhere in my house and I can't seem to find her anywhere. If anyone knows the whereabouts of the Fly Lady please let me know. I NEED HER!

Look in your closet with the back packs. I bet she is hiding there!

let's take a moment to think upon these words of wisdom:

Baby steps! It did not get dirty overnight, and it is not going to get clean in a day! - FlyLady

i've been trying not to let myself get frustrated-- you know that feeling of wanting it clean and wanting it all done immediately!:-) especially since i've been there before and know how nice it is! maintenance of an already clean and perfectly decluttered house is a lot easier than getting it to that clean and perfectly decluttered state!!

SixBit is just looking out for someone who has a hard time saying "No".

Pinky said...

laughter - I know what you mean and have been trying to declutter since Jan. although I am not doing very well since the fly lady keeps playing hide n seek with me. Maintenance is so much easier. Maybe i just need to entice the Flylady with a little caffeine. What do you think?

Six Bit - thanks for looking out for me. I truly am getting better at saying no.
