I am so glad that FlyLady doesn't yell. She is gentle with us grownup girls and boys. I readily admit that at fifty-nine years old the little girl wanting to please is still here. Only, I know now that I am doing this to please me too. I honestly don't think all mothers know how to get their children to do things in small increments; otherwise, I probably would have learned that myself before I was grown. I had plenty of role models, but I only learned to jump in and spend a whole day cleaning. I learned to apply the theory of working in small segments of time in college. And I loved college, because I love to learn and I was unafraid (most of the time). Now, I am studying how to have a clean house in small segments of time. I have learned cleaning can be fun, easy, and simple.
|My lovely bed, made imperfectly. Look how clean the table is.|
I thought Day 4 would add another chore. By the way, I am dressed, wearing sandals, and I have a cute headband in my hair today. My bed is made, and I haven't even gotten to that Day yet. And I did not spend two hours writing my blog today. Yea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
