Flylady Babysteps:

Day 1 - Shine your kitchen sink!! 

Day 2 - Dress to shoes! 

Day 3 - Exploring the Flylady’s website!

Day 4 - Write things down! 

Day 5 - Write down what you hear

Day 6 - Hot spots!! 

Day 7 - Pick out your clothes http://www.flylady.net/d/getting-started/31-beginner-babysteps/day-7/


Today we are picking out our clothes the night before we need them and laying them out. This means we need to look at the forecast and plan a bit. Don’t want to be wearing a jogging outfit when we go to the bank for that important meeting. Don’t want to be wearing a suit to coach basketball!


Need more inspiration?


For me this is harder than it sounds. I have a VERY small bedroom. There is no where for me to put an outfit that I have picked out. However I am working on it. This does help me when I have done it, but I am not great about it.


An overview of the whole 31 days.



Advanced Flylady: 

This week the Flylady is focused on Zone 2 - The Kitchen


Sunday - Renew your spirit!

Each Sunday is the day to Renew Your Spirit. This is a day to take time for yourself and build YOU up with your favorite things. If you don’t Renew Your Spirit, you can’t renew the spirit of others. Here are some great ideas:

  • A movie at the local theater

  • A walk in the park

  • Curl up with a good book

  • Take a long hot bubble bath

  • Watch a favorite movie

There are so many ways you can Renew Your Spirit. Find some that work for you.

Oh no, Zone 2: The Kitchen. I'll say this is my least favorite zone. I just don't like cleaning the kitchen! 



--Grocery shopping, two stores

--Sweep house minus bedrooms

--Hall bathroom tidy

--My bathroom tidy

--Sweep deck and front porch


Dinner: steak, mashed potatoes, corn and rolls


ETA: making zucchini muffins. Yay!

I don't mind the kitchen. I spend most of my time there or in my bedroom generally. So it should be clean. There are a few tasks that I have been wanting to do in there so this will get me to focus on doing them. ;)


We didn't go to church today. It is 1 degree outside and I had a feeling we would be fighting with the boys to get up then we would go to someplace cold for 2 hours. It was too much! We do have to go out today though. :( We are out of butter and low on milk. Hard to believe they think it will be 50 degrees by Friday. 


Today is blessing hour day for us. I am also requiring organization of one area every week. This week I get the junk (my word, most of it is probably not junk) off the shelves in the living room. Our whole living room is shelves (more or less) so having junk on them and not just books is VERY annoying! Today I get them back! :D I will take photos when we are done. ;)


First thing first. I must get up out of my warm bed and get ready to face the day... I wish we had a fireplace. :(


Dinner is buffalo chicken stuffed shells and bread from last night.

Not much today, we're staying home from church too, because most of us are sick. I will still try to get my sink shined and some laundry done.

Sundays are easy days, but then again because I keep up with my daily chores most days are easy. Like my bathroom tidys. I just swish and wipe and because the bathrooms are deep cleaned during their zone cleaning, just doing a tidy is easy. 


My chores are finished for the day. It's nearly 3:00pm and I'm making zucchini muffins so I might not feel like it, but if I have a hankering to do some cleaning, I'm going to get started on my kitchen zone cleaning. The worst thing is cleaning out the refrigerator. I have to take everything out and wash the shelves and walls. We're pretty good at not having old food around since we clean out the old food every Tuesday for trash night. I might start that tonight because it's too big a job to do in one sitting.


I hope the rest of you are having a lovely Sunday!
