I am just finishing up on Day 4 of BabySteps. I got dressed to shoes this morning and put up my reminder notes this morning as well. We just finished eating dinner and I had swished the dishes while cooking so the only things I had to cleanup after we finished eating were the plates and silverware we used and what the food was cooked in (I transferred the leftovers to containers for hubby to take to work for lunch tomorrow). It took maybe 5 minutes to rinse them all off and stick them in the dishwasher.
Then I shined my sink and was amazed by how good it made me feel knowing that when I wake up in the morning, there will be no dishes waiting for me and, not only that, but that my sink will be shiny and clean — a feat that has not happened in my 7+ years of married life (except for when we were cleaning the kitchen for a move), and possibly not in my entire adult life.
I have always procrastinated when it came to getting those pesky dishes done, that never-ending cycle of dishes, but now, only 4 days in, I feel better about my kitchen than I have in a very long time. I could not have done this without your BabySteps. Thank you, FlyLady! I look forward to seeing the changes in my home as I continue on this FlyBaby journey!
