Those "More Time Moms" calendars rock don't they? DH actually gets mine for me each year from a kiosk in our mall. Only problem is it doesn't come with all those neat Flylady stickers like the zones & stuff. Luckily I don't actually DO her zones anymore (morphed into my own routine) so I'm OK with just the holiday/special occasion stickers that come in the back of the calendar itself.
About the pit thing. Our garage is this way. My house is great. I've even got our back porch under control. But the garage is a total mess & I've just learned to live with it. We have an 800 sq ft house with no basement. 3/4 of the stuff in the garage is slated for our attic, but it just keeps not happening so there is sits.... Slowly driving me insane, but at least it's NOT all in my house!
I used the MTM calender for the past two years and have enough stickers from the back of the calender to last me through 2007 leftover. This is my first year really trying to do flylady, so I'm glad to have gotten that calender with the stickers for her program in it.
