OK, I’ve been procrastinating for years since my part time job ended and I had more evenings and weekends free for myself. What did I do, I RELAXED and STITCHED instead of setting my home to rights!!!
SO, today with Kerry’s convincing I signed into FlyLady and opened up the “Beginner Baby Steps” program and what does it start with – A Shiny Sink!!! Well that is kinda impossible when I’ve dishes left right and centre so yep you guessed it I did my dishes, but then that lead to cleaning out my overloaded dishes etc cupboards so I can put the stuff I use away!!! Well that lead to clearing out two shopping bags full of useless plastic and emptying some jars of ingredients from who knows when and also pitching out larger jars that I decided I did not need to keep anymore and a small package of jam like jars to be packed up for my sister who does canning still.
OMGG, you won’t believe it but a large box of odds and ends along with 4 shopping bags of garbage just got hauled out!!! Next is putting away the clean dishes in spots that will hold all now. I’ve pulled out my shrimp n sauce and a pepsi (I deserve it!) and a bit of rest to read the instructions for the Shiny Sink process and that will be my next step!!!
THEN, it’s back to stitching for the rest of this day! I think that is definitely all I’ll do for today – PHEWIE!!! Will have to see what Step #2 is for tomorrow – hopefully something that is achievable without major upheaval in his untidiness!
YES, I did smile when I came back in and saw the tidier kitchen!!! Don’t jump the gun there is still lots to do here!!! But like the program says “Baby Steps” and this place did not get like this in one day or week so I do not expect it to be set right for a while yet!!!
