I LOVE visitors.
The cleaning spree that occurs before people invade my home is awesome. Actually, to rephrase that: The beautiful house that results from the cleaning spree that is sparked by the announcement of visitors is AWESOME!!
My current fb status says: OK! The house is clean! Touch or move anything and you are in time out for E... TER....NI... TY!!
But have realized that I need to get the Fly Lady back in my life.
You don't know who the FlyLady is??? GASP!!!!
Check out Flylady.net to learn more about this impressive woman.
Now back to what I was about to say.......
I need the Flylady back in my life. Now, my closest friends would either gasp or would would giggle at that comment. They are pretty convinced that I HATE the Flylady. Why would they think that? Cause I've used those words.
You see I have a problem. My problem is that I have issues when other people boss me around and tell me what to do. I am an independent, only child who is married to an independent only child...... Most things need to be *my* idea and thankfully Hubby has caught onto this quirk that I have.
So how do I know that I need the Flylady in my life again and if I dislike her how was she ever in my life before???
I have a group of friends who I chat with everyday through email. One of these friends would post the FlyLady's FlyZones each day. Each week the Fly Lady focuses on one area of the house and each day she sends out messages giving you a tiny, bite size task that you normally don't include in your daily routine. Like wipe under the countertop appliances, clean out your garbage cans, wipe the floor behind the toilet, wipe off ceiling fans with a pillow case.
I HATED THESE EMAILS!!! I HATED someone telling me where I HAD TO clean and when!
I found myself filing these in my subconscious and often would realized 3 days later that I was doing something that FlyLady had told me I was supposed to do many days before! OR... I would look around and do extra things and the FlyLady would mention them a few days after I did them.
I LOVED to HATE the FlyLady.
Today while cleaning I kept seeing little corners here and there that I am SURE the FLYLADY would have told me last week that I needed to clean (the washing machine top, corners, behind the toilet, etc.)
I think I need the FlyLady in my life again to tell my subconscious the great cleaning epiphanies that I need to have!
You too could have the FlyLady in your life too! Check her out.... I only gave you a gazillion links to her website. While you are there tell her I'm spreading the good news about her website that I love to hate! How many times did I link to her website anyway?
