My Perpetually Shiny Sink
As of today I have completed the first 31 days (or babysteps) of Flylady, the famous home-improvement/self-improvement program that starts with a shiny sink. I am thoroughly hooked.
Maybe it's the sleep deprivation of being a new mom, or maybe it's because on my own I am such a hopeless procrastinator, but I love waking up every day with an email in my inbox telling me exactly what to do. It even reminds me to brush my hair and put my shoes on! That might make a more together woman feel like an idiot, but at the end of the day when the baby is asleep and I can look around at a tidy house with no laundry or dishes waiting for me, I feel a wave of peace, and I can go to sleep looking forward to the next day.
If it takes having a stranger instructing me when to vacuum my carpet or clean out my purse, then so be it. Flylady's wish is my command.
