So, I have never been a neat-freak. No, I've always been a clutterbug. I would keep stuff for reasons that make no sense to me, but since I've had it this long, it must have been important. I sound old when I say this, but really, it started when I was young. Also, I'm pretty nostalgic, so if I remember who gave it to me, it is hard for me to part with it even if I don't really like it.

Well, a friend of mine suggested I check out the Fly lady. I had actually joined the Fly Lady group before, but I never got the emails and never really got past the first day or two. Since I had it suggested to me again, I figured I'd give it a try.

I first realized this must be helping when I asked Roger what I should pick up at the store, and he said, "We seem to be missing a couple of bags of clutter. Maybe you should pick some more up."

Now within the last week, my 4 year old has shined my sink 3 times...just to make me happy.

So, I feel like a few of the testimonials I get border a tad bit on the cultish side. Fly lady routines are simple and are totally helping me. I feel like God is really helping free me in so many ways in recent weeks, and this is just a nice addition to all He is doing in me. Its God that's helping me, and he's using this nice lady's stuff. I worry about some of these ladies... But all in all if you were not Born Organized and you need a little help, I suggest trying it out...even when some of it sounds silly. I've adapted things... For me, just getting dressed in the morning helps me get more done...but I can't wear shoes in my house in the summer...we don't have central air, and I'd just be miserable. Part of my freedom is not in obeying the rules for rules sake, but seeing what really motivates me and using that to make my house more liveable for the whole family.
