    I'm in also! Day 2 is get dressed INCLUDING shoes!!! Wow, when I am home "to clean" or whatever, I am barefoot for sure and probably in sweats or pjs. I will start with the sink tonight when I get home from work, though. I think this will be great. I definitely suffer from "chaos." Nan

    I like FlyLady but have found watching shows on hoarding kicks me into action like nothing else. It's my scared straight program.

    Maryann,
    You've already had a taste of success. So do as much or as little as your best judgement says. It can't hurt to try. If shining your sink is something you already do - just post about that!

    Awesome about DD and her 'control journal.' Go DD!

    Welcome aboard Nan!
    If you feel good about yourself in sweats after a long day of work, then sweats or Pjs can be your 'afterwork uniform.' Just make sure you wouldn't cringe if someone dropped over to say "Hi."

    But be brave and try the lace up shoes. If you try it for a few weeks and don't like it, you can always go back to your old barefeet, and keep the parts that did work for you. For me this is about being flexible, trying new things, and seeing if the part of my mind that talks to me knows as much as she acts like she knows.

    Yippee!!!
    Grinity

    I have trouble with the baby steps, and want to do it all NOW (which Fly Lady advises against, and I never listen to...), so then I end up going back to my old ways of doing ...not enough.


    Seriously - we think our kids are inflexible? What a great way to get in touch with how much we don't like to turn over the wheel! Be strong Mama22Gs! I think it will be easier with all of us together. I used to write emails to the staff at Flylady, and they were always so sweet and encouraging - no matter how much I whined!

    Okay, so tonight I shine the sink!


    Go Go Go Go Go!

    Inky - I feel so sad when I watch those shows. But if it works for you then go for it!

    Hi! Welcome!
    I changed into 'house sneakers' for a few years.

    I just shined my sink and dryed off the waterspots.
    Love and More Love,
    Grinity
