my newest bff

17 Sep

ok. so maybe she’s not my bff.

and really, she doesn’t even know i exist.

and for that matter, i don’t actually know what her first real name is…

but i love her just the same.

who am i talking about?!?!

FlyLady, of course.

haven’t you heard of her?!

i hadn’t either till one of my real life bffs sent me the link that changed my life.


i am only on day 2. but still.

any website that can get me up off my butt and cleaning my sink on a sunday needs to be described as life changing.

don’t believe me?

here is the before…ok, the during, i forgot to take a before picture…

the middle (yes, i took a pinterest break while stuff was “soaking”…it WAS sunday…)

and after.

seriously. i am anti-anything related to cleaning.

hate it.

with a passion.

and i ACTUALLY got up, left pinterest behind. and cleaned my sink.

AND my microwave, dishwasher and front-load washer.

    I poked around her website but am not sure I can give it a try. Putting on shoes is just so against my way of life at home. Can I bend the rules?

    Who is this FLY lady???? My nephew’s wife follows her (apparently this shiny sink thing is BIG in Alberta 🙂 ) . She manages to do all that stuff and she has four BOYS…a six year old, four year old, and twin two year olds! I’m officially now afraid to click on the link. I think it takes over your brain! Lol

      i usually skip the shoe part…jeans do the trick, they make me feel like i am UP for the day…i am missing my pj bottoms though…
