This Has Never Happened to Me

Dear FlyLady,

I just wanted to say “thank you”!! I have been fluttering off and on since 2004. After doing a crisis cleaning/stash&dash for company on Aug 9th, I decided right then and there that I didn’t want to do this anymore. My way was obviously not working!

So I sat down with Sink Reflections and reread it again. Not sure why, but this time things made sense to me and I let go of my perfectionism and allowed myself to have faith in your system. Pick up after myself and it will stay tidy. Keep after my hotspots. Shine my sink. So I did! I concentrated on those things and did the daily missions, I redid my control journal, and then you started the Bandwagon and it was perfect timing!

Fast forward to today. More company is coming. My house has stayed neat and tidy since Aug 9th! Last night I did a quick version of my weekly home blessing (I usually do it on Monday) of dusting, vacuuming, and mopping the hardwood floors in the main traffic areas to get up the puppy prints since it rained recently, and I swept the front walk/porch. This morning I got dressed to shoes, did my morning routine, and was then ready to work to get the place in order. Marla! I couldn’t find anything else to do!!! I went through my crisis cleaning list, I couldn’t find anything that needed doing! No clutter, no hotspot, nothing to hide away. So here I sit, waiting for the company to arrive, I’m relaxed and in purple puddles because this has never happened to me before!

I just wanted to say Thank You Marla from the bottom of my heart! I know I’m not 100% there yet, its too early, but I have faith that this time it will work and will soon become routine. I think I get it now! 🙂



FlyLady here: Are you tired of living in CHAOS? It seems that we have to hit bottom before we can start pulling ourselves up by our routines!

She jumped back on the bandwagon by rereading Sink Reflections. Do you have Sink Reflections in a hot spot some place! Go find your copy of Sink Reflections. If you have not read it! What are you waiting for?
