Tackling the house

So, I posted a question about domestic crap. My house is not where I want it to be. I am new to the non work day thing and I want the house to look better/different. The problem is that I don't like house work. So naturally, the Rookie looks to more seasoned players for tips. I was looking for simple ways to do this crap. I really don't like house work so you may hear me repeat the word crap a lot. That is my frustration word of choice & no it does not substitute profanity. I am not really into the profanity thing although I was a sailor and have every right to use it!  I am throwing that in just in case I get beat up by this particular goal!

So here it is, 10:30pm and I am excitedly hubbing about another hub that was posted. The hub has really given me hope. This lady responded to my question with a link to her hub and sounds like my kindered spirit in the household department anyway. She found a resource that I have no knowledge of called FlyLady. I am using the series of hubs written about a 31 day, baby step program to actually follow the program myself. I am going to attempt this without having any first hand access to the resource. In the hub, which is well written and funny, the lady is a skeptic and really is full of hope while on the fence. It is a very familiar area for me when it comes to this department in my life.

Anyway, I am supposed to be going to bed to chaperone 2nd graders tomorrow, but first I have to clean my sink because that is the first step. The sooner I take the first step, the sooner this frustrating card carried predominantly by the female population will be over or at least at a tolerable, non-frustrating, easy to upkeep level. Lord, I hope that I can do this and that it works. Whew! As you can probably tell, I have all sorts of issues in the domestics area. I am a work in progress. We will see how this goes. As I write this, I am thinking about dinner, which I still have to put away, and I am dreading the thought of what is in my sink. I just am so grateful that they didn't start with clean the counter. That would take all night!  Just a random question, if I just buy the outfit in the picture, can I get out of the house work?  Had to ask.  I know the answer... off to the kitchen I go, CRAP!

Wish me luck!

Here is the hub that I read. I would love to hear from any rookie house wife sisters that maybe out there...

Oh Crap, It says shine the sink, not clean the sink. I'll start tomorrow! Or Maybe it should be a weekend thing. I am not procrastinating! Grrr...

I'll let you know what happens. Why did I find it so late...

Still not procrastinating...goodnight.

This made me laugh...I'm so glad you are trying the BabySteps. I have about 10 trash bags full of crap to donate to charity this weeked...all from only doing a few minutes a day. Good luck to you on your FlyLady adventure. You know where to find me if you have questions or need support.

Oh my, too funny. This is so how we felt when we started the babysteps. I also have a huge pile of stuff to donate (plus I have to admit the trash men probably think we're moving from the amount of green trash bags I put on the curb every week now)since we started. Good luck!

FUNNY! Just hang in there, you'll make it. Being a house wife is the hardest thing. I have been one for 11 years. I started at a young age. It is tuff but you will get the hang of it. Just remember to take time to vent, so everything doesn't blow up at one time.

I'd vote but I'm not a woman.

Sorry for your loss.
