Just Give Me My Wings...
..because I'm all set to FLY!!

I'm not quite sure it makes any sense to start this a few weeks before i have a baby...but i figure, i'm sooo sick of the clutter in my house that i have to start somewhere...and since FRIDAY is my last day of work (yes, yes, i'm currently, as we speak, doing a happy dance) i'm ready to start CLEANING and ORGANIZING.

The Flylady website is full of information. almost too much information. while reading through it, though, i stumbled 2 very useful activities:

1) there is something called a HOTSPOT. This is any area that, when clean, if you lay one piece of paper on it, the paper will begin to multiply and before you know it, the surface will be covered. ah, i have these places all over my house. my kitchen counter, right next to my fridge. my nightstand. my computer desk. (yes, Virginia, there IS a desk under there.)

so, because clutter attracts clutter, the goal is to nip this in the bud. Get rid of that pile, find the surface underneath, and stop the Hot Spot from becoming a raging Clutter inferno!

2) there is something called a 27-FLING BOOGIE. To do this task, you must take a garbage bag and walk through your home and throw away 27 items. Do not stop until you have collected all 27 items. Then close the garbage bag and pitch it. DO NOT LOOK IN IT!!! Just do it. do not pass go. do not collect $200. just do it!

so...i'm going to develop my own version of FLYing. i don't think i can commit to 700 emails a day with missions and zones and all sorts of scary things. BUT, i know i can do these two tasks. and most likely, just doing these, will help!

I'm a displaced American writer, mom, and wife living in Canada who muses about my life, my kids, my tv watching and my slight obsession with celebrities.
