Just want to say - reading that woman's homepage scared me.
Can you really be that obsessed over housecleaning and not have OCD?

I discovered FLYLADY while MDC was down for upgrades last week. Clutter is probably the thing that causes the most strife in our marriage. My dh is the ultimate clutter freak - if he doesn't know what something is, he thinks it's junk. I can only honestly disagree with him about 50% of the time. When I was single, I used to do fall and spring cleaning every year - going through every single item in my house. Now that I'm married, I haven't done it once. Until I signed up for the FLYLADY....
I spent an hour on one room last week - I took two boxes to Good Will and was able to put my sewing stuff away so you can actually walk in our spare bedroom now and I can access my sewing stuff easily. I'm telling you, it's a major high - much better than shopping or eating a piece of cake or drinking a cup of coffee when you don't drink caffeine on a regular basis.
As for the constant emails, no, I don't do all of them either. Actually, I would say at this point I only manage to do about 20% of what the FLYLADY recommends, from shoes (hate them) to having a morning/evening routine. But I figure I learn by osmosis, and having all those reminders (even if I don't do all of them) helps me to do more than I was doing, so therefore I AM A SUCCESS!!!!
It's okay, you can laugh.
But really, I do feel like I have a new house. It's so much more fun to live here, and it will only get better as I clean out more areas I've been meaning to get to. Last weekend I cleaned out ds's room (he's grown through four sizes of clothes now and I actually put them away finally). My next project is the kitchen or the office, whichever I get to first when that cleaning mode strikes again. This is so exciting.
Really, it's okay, you can laugh!

do tell about the office in a bag
I want to know if it is worth it what makes it worth it before I commit that much to a binder..

We are going to try to do an evening routine together with the girls every night starting at 7 or 7:30ish. Last night was very good, and my older dd has already said that her game needs to be picked up later. I still need to get a move on with the other things. Man, why do I have such a hard time with this??

I think starting a weekly thread is a good idea.
