My Attitude has Changed

Dear FlyLady,

Rather than a testimonial, this is just a very pleased comment.

I signed up several years ago using my business e-mail address and was learning a lot and enjoying the process. When my company changed its server, the climate at work was so bad I decided not to advise you of the address change, since the company wasn’t happy about employees receiving personal mail at the office (couldn’t do the tasks anyway until I got home, but it helped keep me focused knowing what I wanted to do once I did get home).

Although I wasn’t receiving the e-reminders, I did keep at the basics, like shining my sink every night, and swishing and swiping the bath after my shower every morning. Putting on shoes wasn’t a problem, since I had to do that anyway to go to work, LOL.

I was also learning to do things for ME and not because a grumpy husband complained about them. He hasn’t changed, but my attitude has and it makes life easier.

To make a long story short, I am now happily retired and have signed up again for the e-mails with my new personal e-mail address. I have wonderful plans for decluttering on a grand scale and turning our home into the happy, peaceful place I’ve always wanted. I’ve already cleared all the expired medicines out of the medicine chest and have a sack of clothes that don’t fit Number-Three-Son ready for the recycling bin. And I hope to finally make time for my hobbies.

The reason I’m writing is because of the new Cozi calandar which I think is an EXCELLENT idea! Having everything on-line helps to not waste paper (actually I still have the lists printed up from way back when, but I think the Cozi Calendar will be more immediate and helpful – and it doesn’t create clutter!!)

Thanks for being there FlyLady.

Whenever you  think of all the people you’ve helped over the years, you should be very proud of yourself!
