STORIESFROMTHESHOEBOX




I don't want to be the mom who sits at the computer all day. I don't want to be the mom who reads and writes blogs while her children turn into Mario and Luigi. I don't want to be the mom who gets a muffin top and a typing workout..my confession today is...I have been that mom!

 I've been having so much fun reading so many new blogs, and playing with mine,
that I've been sucked into the vortex of blogging!

Maybe my mommy ADD wouldn't be so bad if I turned the computer off?
So in the spirit of getting my butt in gear I'm beginning "flying" lessons today!

Does anyone else FLY?
I highly recommend this site for anyone who needs to get their housekeeping routine in gear! This week's zone is the master bedroom. I'm not sure is the Fly Lady is totally onto me, but this is by far my worst room! Sadly, our master bedroom is the catch all from all other rooms in the house. You may have read my story, and know how I feel about my "shoebox", and today it's too small! UGH!

Thank you, Lord, for a roof over our heads. I am grateful, don't get me wrong. But can't I be grateful and frustrated? I'm just saying...
There's never enough space, and if I don't stay completely organized things get crazy. That's pretty much how they are right now, and I can't take it any longer.
So, I'm beginning my zone work, getting the kids back on a limited screen time schedule, and turning off the computer! Seriously, do I really think I'm going to gain followers if I'm checking every five minutes to see if I have a new one??

Can anyone else relate? Please tell me you can! Start flying, and get things organized at your home!
Just FYI...I love the Fly Lady's routines, and techniques, and they do work! However, I HATE her emails! There's just too many, and I never read them. I just check to see what zone she's in, jump in, and try to get her daily missions done. I also LOVE her weekly home blessing hour. This makes a HUGE difference!
But, I don't worry with all the other hoo ha.

So, until later...MUCH MUCH LATER!

I so need to try that. I've heard good thing about Fly Lady.

I do get sucked into blogging. Not today, though. :) I played with my kids outside and then when I sat down outside with them, I just watched or read a book and did NOT bring my laptop out with me!

Hey Adrienne, It is so easy to get sucked into the blog world. It really does take up a lot of time! I have had to leave my computer in the house when I go out. It is so nice visiting all the wonderful women out there and learning new recipes, seeing amazing pictures and getting to know everyone. I am writing this comment at 12:oo at night! I am pooped and hope it makes sense! By the way, your blog looks great! have a great night!

Just checked out the site! I have to start decluttering! I have to find the energy and the time!

Thanks ladies! It's easy to get sucked in, but I'm trying to set boundaries. I just LOVE meeting all of you, and reading your stories! :) Thanks for stopping by!
