FlyBaby- Day 2

So Day 2 for us FlyBabies challenges us to get dressed all the way to our shoes. Yikes! First of all, I hardly ever wear shoes in my house. Second of all, and most importantly, I MUST have my breakfast and coffee before getting dressed and ready for the day (Except on Sundays when schedule and 3 kids to get ready for church all by myself force me to switch the order). And third of all, there are days when I am lucky to even get a shower, much less get dressed to my shoes! Plus, this is supposed to include make-up and hair. Now she's really pushing it! But, FlyLady has a plan for getting me more organized and I'm guessing more productive, so I must at least put forth the effort. I think I will ammend this challenge to read, "Get dressed to presentable by lunch." Or soon, "Get dressed to presentable by school time." I'll let you know how it goes.

Update on Shiny Sinks:
FlyLady hit the nail right on the head with this one. I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to come into the kitchen this morning. I think it really smiled at me! Even though it was 11:00 last night, I made sure the dishes were in the dishwasher, the counters were clean and everything was in it's place before I went to bed. My mother always told me this "shiny sink" concept was important, but for some reason I never listened. (Sorry, Mom! I'm actually just now catching on to leaving everything cleaned up when I leave the house for a trip!) So last night I did it and this morning, it paid off. However, it didn't last very long. Tonight I couldn't empty the sink because I had forgotten to run the dishwasher today. So everything is at least rinsed, trash is in the trash, things are put away, and the dishwasher is running. But I have a not-so-shiny sink. Oh, well. Baby steps!
