The Beginning

Let's start at the very beginning, a very good place to start! Instead of reading however, it is the beginning of my Flying journey. Again. You see, I'm a Fluttering FlyBaby. For those of you who are familiar with the FlyLady, you'll understand what I mean. (For those who don't understand, please visit - link is on the right of this page).

I have known about the FlyLady for a few years now, but I have never been able to get myself with the program for any length of time. I think I got as far as Baby Step 8 once! This time however, I want it to be different. I'm tired of living in CHAOS (Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome). I know that I'm a perfectionist and a procrastinator. I also work full-time outside of the home, I'm a wife, and a mother of a toddler (DD 18 months). I tend to get over-excited about new projects and go overboard, only to crash and burn soon after.

One of my new projects has been writing. I realize I will probably never be a NYT bestselling author. But it finally dawned on me that I don't need to have a book deal in order to write. So I started writing. Mostly online, and no money has come in yet, but I am writing. As I have been writing, I have discovered that when I write that I am going to DO something, I am actually FOLLOWING THROUGH with whatever I have written down. This means of course, it is time to write down my intentions for home.

I am going to begin with the Baby Steps. I can do this, 15 minutes at a time :) !
