I love the flylady. I should also mention that I have gotten her emails on and off for 3 years and I still have Chaos.
But what it has done for me is really given me great ideas. In the summer I sometimes go barefoot but most of the time I like the way my back feels when I am wearing good comfortable shoes and how I am willing to do more because I am willing to get off my tushie.
The whole shiny sink is just to get you are starting point.
You are only supposed to do babysteps!!! Jump in where you are at and your not behind.....something like that anyways.
I grew up without ever learning how to cope with messes or how to clean. So I had no idea what I was doing with my own home especially with three kids, a dh, two cats, and three fish. Flylady let me know I wasn't alone and no matter what I accomplished, it was a blessing.
If you are attracted to the Flylady way it might be because you are a SHE, and if that's true then you might also be the type of person who would rather do nothing if you can't do everything. That is part of what she is trying to help people deal with, ya know? It's okay to clean the table off even if you don't have time to give it the awesome scrub it really needs..... that kind of thing.
Okay done for now. Glad I found this thread.
