My guests left today after a lovely, week long visit. My kitchen stayed clean thanks to keeping up with my morning and evening routines, so when our guest offered to bake bread, I could hand him all the clean dishes and counter space he required.
And instead of feeling badly for a few weeks about not having time, I used the “do it now” approach, so the guest room sheets and towels are already in the dryer. Tomorrow I’ll tidy up the guest bath and be ready for the next set of visitors.
I’m now living in calm instead of chaos and it is wonderful. Thanks FlyLady!
