Flylady would be proud...

I've been "flying" with the Flylady for a couple years now. Most of the time I'm fairly good at following her zones and routines but this summer everything went south...ya' know to HE-double-hockey-sticks in a hand basket.

Anyway, I'm taking my 15 minute break and doing a quick blog update.

I've been cleaning the kitchen today. I'm talking about the take everything out, wipe down the shelves, organize and put everything back, and wipe down the outside of the cabinets kind of cleaning. I've got one more lower cabinet to clean out not counting under the sink which is on my list too but it'll be the LAST thing that gets done.

I'm not entirely sure what set me in motion this morning. The kitchen zone is two weeks away per Flylady schedule so it's not that. At 95 degrees, it's certainly not a misplaced need to spring clean. I did do a major shopping yesterday after dropping Ian off for school...oh the joys of shopping with ONE kid, of course shopping with NO kids at all is my preferred method. When I got home and was putting things away what should happen but I discovered I had bought something already sitting in the cabinet they call a pantry...not a huge deal because it'll get used eventually. So I started in the "pantry" and worked my way around the top portion of the kitchen. Then started in on the bottom half. Once I've finished the cabinets it's on to the refrigerator/freezer which the kids have sweetly covered in spilled juice or Kool-Aid.

So, yes, the Flylady would be proud!

Wow! Flylady would be soooo proud of you! I really need to get myself back on the bandwagon with her myself. Things here have just been totally out of control lately, but hopefully by next week they will be better.

I'm just taking my 15 min. break from cleaning the entire the bathroom! Yesterday I did some of the kitchen, but it needs a complete overhaul itself.

Hope you get to enjoy the rest of your Holiday Weekend!

I feel your pain. I am working on it now myself. I am taking a break and came across your blog. I did shine my sink today ;)
