I have to say it again...

I love Flylady!

Yesterday morning, before Ross had even left for work, my friend Anita came by. A year ago, if someone had stopped by at that hour, I would have been mortified - but instead I was happy to invite her in. I was dressed, the baby was dressed, the bed was made, the dirty laundry was in the washer, the kitchen counters were empty, and there was one cereal bowl in the sink. The first thing she said was "Mmmm, smells good in here!" I have four cats and a garbage can full of diapers, so that was saying something!

I love that the habits I have picked up from Flylady free me up to concentrate on more important things, like being a mom, and that I don't have to feel embarrassed or overwhelmed by a place that should be a refuge for me and my family!

That's awesome! Maybe I will have to check this flylady thing out because my house is always in disarray! It's embarrassing! And now that I am only going to be working a few hours a week...I need to get a handle on this stay at home mommy thing!

Hehe, thanks for not making me feel like a dork guys! If you go to the website linked in my blog post, look for the baby steps! That's what I did, and it really helped me get a good routine going! Also, sign up for the emails (I get the big once-a-day one instead of a bunch of little ones).

I heart the flylady! Way to be, Kim. I seriously need to figure out a routine for my kid's and their bedrooms and mine. That's where we struggle, I can keep everything else clean, but the bedrooms, oy vey!

Just found this on the website today, lots of good stuff if anyone is interested! :)
