Brace yourselves, I’m about to go all FLYlady on you for one post. No, I’m not going to flood your inboxes or ask if you are wearing shoes. What I am going to do is give you a goal. Every night (or morning or afternoon for you shift workers) just before you head to bed make sure your sink is clean.
Why am I asking this?
Mornings and the days they become are easier to face if chores aren’t lying in wait. As I sit on my couch typing to you, I can feel the dishes mocking me from the sink and counters.
Secondly, it takes approximately twenty-one days for a routine to become a habit. This gives just enough time before most relatives and friends arrive disrupting schedules. If we are not vigilant (or eat only take-out) kitchen can be destroyed in a single meal.
The holidays are a busy time, the last thing we need is to feel handicapped by by yesterday’s mess. As soon as this posts, I’ll be turning on Hulu.com for some company and making tomorrow easier to face. Feel free to join me in spirit.
