Babysteps

I need to get back on the Flylady program. I was doing well, house looked put together, dinner always taken care of, I was put together to. Lately I feel like I'm scrambling, R says I need to slow down, but I've never been one to take my time. Now I see how my actions impact the boys- if I can't find something, how can I get upset when the same happens to M? I want to nip this now- so I can enjoy life more, and not have stress- or at least have a plan to deal with it. Look for changes in the days and weeks ahead, I'm going to refocus my time and energy.

Hang in there sista! You know how mom always was stressed out and rushed for doing stuff. It put a damper on us kids and our fun time. Enjoy the moments with the kids you'll cherish for ever. There's always time for chores later on when the kids go off to bed. Easier said than done but keep at it. Determination is everything.

Good luck with that. I've thought about trying flylady but it doesn't seem flexible enough for me. I've got my own little system going lately that seems to be working o.k.

Give yourself some slack though. You've always got a lot on your plate and you don't want to overload yourself.

Mr.Man always says to me "If the dishes don't get done today, then they don't get done. Don't sweat the small stuff." and I try to remember that and keep my priorities in order.

There are days that the house is going to be a mess, but that's just the way it goes sometimes. Try and just do the best you can. That's all anyone can ask for.
