Therefore, I see this as a re-education opportunity for those of us who deal with chronic illnesses and fatigue. I hope to tackle clutter in whatever area of life I find it. My goal is to help us find ways to simplify our routines, so when flares happen we don't feel guilt-ridden and frustrated. About guilt -- you shouldn't feel that way when you are sick. I think most of us would like to be able to do things the way we used to, but most of us can't.
So, we will learn to adjust our attitudes, how we talk to ourselves, and how we get our work done. We are not going for "perfect," but we are learning to pace ourselves and have a reasonably clean house, which we can enjoy. This blog is all about encouragement and hope. It's a about keeping on -- keeping on, but not making ourselves sicker in the process. God bless you on this journey. I am thinking about you and praying for you.

Returning to Your Normal Routine after a Relapse,
31 Days of FlyLady
The following blog posts are from when I decided to stick to 31 Days of FlyLady Babysteps. What I found was a continual problem with energy that would get in the way and frustrate me. However, I consider the things I have learned from FlyLady extremely useful.
Marla Cilley, the FlyLady came up with a system that has helped thousands of people over the last 10 or 15 years. From all of the cleaning plans and organizational systems that are written about in books and blogs, it is obvious there are many people who want to do it better. From what I have seen, cleaning "personalities" range from the seriously clutter challenged and messy to people that would simply like to be more efficient in getting the job done. Marla Cilley's system can be useful in helping one establish a routine.
Oh, I must mention that I have started the 31 Days of FlyLady Babysteps several times in the last 9 or 10 years. I would have to say I was the struggling flybaby. Maybe, that is because I am usually too tired to do the daily routines every day. Therefore, I am willing to happy with clean enough or reasonably clean. I have to keep my perfectionism from making me feel like a flybaby failure and talk nicely to myself.
