FlyLady — Taking it Baby Steps at a Time

I found a blog the other day , H20 at Home with Kerri, and I love this blog. It has a lot of great insight and a lot of useful information. So, go check it out, follow her and tell her I sent you over there, because you really don’t want to miss out on her useful information she has to offer!

Well, before I get into about my venture here…I feel that I have to say whats up…and why I am going the route of the venture…

Do you every feel like you are in a Slump? Seriously, do you?  Well, I do! But the problem is, it is not just one day, it is everyday all the time. I don’t know why, but I do, just…I don’t even know what just means…But still. I come home from work and do the necessities to keep the kids going and just trying to keep up with 3 kids. But honestly I’m exhausted after working all day, coming home and doing all the necessities, playing with the kids, dinner time, bath time and everything else, I don’t really feel like doing anything else. When the kids are finally down to sleep most times I fall asleep with them (and my intentions are not to do that), which means…

• The house is a mess
• I didn’t put in that load of laundry that I wanted to do
• Or I didn’t fold the clothes that have been sitting in the basket for days now
• I didn’t spend any time with the hubby (he works retail, so normally isn’t home until late around 9ish or so)
• Tomorrow I’m waking up and still having to get everything ready for the day that I knew I should have done before
• Rushed, crazed feeling, and everything else

Anyways, after having our 3rd daughter, we have a routine, but that routine doesn’t include the house being cleaned up and everything else, that routine is to keeps the kids in line and make sure they are fed and all that.  I know, thats a lot in itsself and I really ought to give myself credit for the things I do, but I just can’t.  I just feel lost in my own head, with the house being a mess, my car is a mess and just everything else.  I’m a good mom, and my kids are my heart and they mean the world to me, but everything else is a mess!

So I’ve come down to the fact that I really need to get it together. I want to go back to school, it doesn’t appear that will happen this year like I had planned on it happening, because I feel unorganized.  I guess that would be the case, because the house is a mess, the car is a mess, I would be unorganized.

So, I was reading H2O at Home with Kerri and she started talking about Flylady.net doing the Baby Steps and I said, “Shannon you can do this.”

So, now I am taking the route of Flylady.net and following the lead.   I need some self control and start moving forward!

Kerri is going through the steps on her blog and I am following along and now I am doing the steps.  Once you all see this and read this, I will be on Day 3 of the Baby Steps and please look for my blog updates about how they are going.  Check in on me and see how I’m doing!

Do you want to join in on the Fly Lady? You ought to so we can see how everyone is doing?

Thanks Kerri.
