For Day 3 of Beginner Baby Steps, Flylady tells us to do what we've been doing. Get dressed to shoes (or, in my case, a pair of old clogs that function as my slippers, because I'd rather not tramp around the house in my boots), shine the sink, read Flylady reminder e-mails for 2 minutes (hard to avoid, there's so many of them), and to read something from the website.
This morning when I got up my sink was shiny but not empty, but it wasn't my fault. M had some chocolate peanut butter cream pie last night and had put his dirty plate in the sink. :^( We'll have to come up with a method for what to do with dirty dishes when the dishwasher is full of clean ones (it was still drying when I went to bed last night).
So I'm up and I'm dressed in a shirt without printing on it (embroidered logos don't count, right, especially when they're on a shirt with a collar?), and clean jeans. My "morning routine" is going to largely be shifted to the evening - shower, etc. That makes our morning much easier with M getting up and dressed, getting TRex up and dressed, etc.
For my "assigned reading" I read about "Zone Cleaning"
. This is what I've tried in the past to do - come up with a schedule for what gets cleaned on each day. But I'd never been able to stick to it. I like the idea of doing more than one day in a room - honestly, I think that if I can get into a routine of basic cleaning on a daily basis then the rooms don't need a DEEP CLEAN any more than every couple of weeks.
So there you have it. Tomorrow's thing is to write all of these things down on a Post-It.
How can I not like a system that involves Post-Its? I mean, really.
