Short on time? Don’t skimp on your routines.

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 

Dear Friends,
How is your week going? We are moving along in my home this week with homeschooling, caring for my home and family, and my real estate business. I can’t think of a better way to care for my home than The FlyLady system.
Even when you are having a busy week, you can find 5 minutes to do a little decluttering. You can find 10 minutes to do one home blessing. You can find 2 minutes to swish & swipe your bathroom.
If you are new to The FlyLady system, here are my top 3 things that make the biggest impact on my home —- shine my kitchen sink, make my bed, and get dressed down to the shoes.
Some of you might be having a rough start to your day, and you don’t feel like you have accomplished anything. Do those three things, and you will feel like you accomplished a lot. You will smile when you walk into the kitchen and see a clean, shiny sink. When you walk into your bedroom, you will smile when you see your bed made up.
Being dressed down to the shoes automatically signals your brain that you are ready to take on whatever the day brings your way. Think with me for a minute on how you feel when you stay in your PJ’s all day. Now, go get dressed and stay aware of how you feel throughout the day.
If you are a seasoned follower of The FlyLady, I want to hear from you. Tell me what one routine has had the biggest impact on you and your home.
Your Zone Mission today is to wipe the front and tops of the stove and fridge. Give the microwave a quick wipe, too.
Your Home Blessing for today is to toss paper and magazines.
My menu plan for Thursday is a surprise.
Have a blessed day!
