ohmygosh, so remember my post when I was whining about not having it all together with my house a few days ago? One sweet gal left a comment to check out The Fly Lady. So I did...
It is just what I need I think! A website completely devoted to helping me and tons of other women just like me get on track with my house. SO last night I joined. When you first start,the fly lady gives you a task to do each day to start building better habits.
So for the first day, all you have to do is shine your sink. like clean it, dry it (omygosh I never dry my sink) and then shine it. ... nothing else. Oh and make sure it is that way when you go to bed. So last night around 1am... I shined my sink. lol
SO today, I go to see what my task is for the day and it says to get dressed to the shoes when you first get up.
Dressed to the shoes? Like, get up, get ready with makeup, hair, clothes and shoes??? no pajama time?? man, I am in trouble. At this point, I am thinking to myself that I am completely going to skip this one. I am mostly a stay at home Mom, I love being in my comfy clothes/pjs when I don't have things to do for the day. I am in them until the very second that I have to get ready to go somewhere. Now if I worked outside the home every day I am sure this would be completely different.
So I got an email from the fly lady website today with further encouragement about this "dress to shoes" task that I am not happy about, and this woman was giving a testimonial about her husband loving this new found habit of hers because she doesn't look like the other moms in the neighborhood that look like they just got out of bed at 7pm.
At the end of the email the The fly lady says ... come on girls~ get dressed to shoes~ no frumpasaurases allowed!
oh my gosh, that is when it hit me.. that is what I am...
