No, I am not referring to the popular video game, Call of Duty. I am referring to Cleaning, Organising and Decluttering. I have decided that there are enough blogs and websites on these topics already out there on the interweb, so I will not add to them. I will not post hints and tips that can be found on dozens of other sites.
This blog was not intended for that. It was intended to document my journey from frazzled to FLYing. I do not need to offer reconstituted advice in order to do that. I will fight the temptation. What I will do however is post how these oodles of sites have and will help me to better my life and house. I am going to give this thing another crack. I have decided to step away from The FlyLady way and forge my own path. Don’t get me wrong, alot of her writings will proivde the foundations of my new lifestyle (and workstyle) but I am going to make it suit me and my home and family. Yes, I will establish routines and declutter my home. No, I will not obsess about keeping my sink shining or wear shoes everyday. I am going to “go with the flow” and take each day as it comes.
A good example of this happened last week. I spent the best part of the day cuddling my beautiful son on the couch. In my pyjamas. I also completed two loads of laundry and washed a whole heap of dishes. In my pyjamas. Bare-foot. And you know what? I loved it. Sure, I do not want every day to be like that day but it was a nice change.
From April 1st I will be re-doing The Organised Housewife’s 20 Days to a Clean Home Challenge. I will be posting each day’s tasks in my facebook group Housework Honeys. I am still wanting to help others that are just as overwhelmed by their homes as I am and was, I am just going to do it a little differently. Why reinvent the wheel? I will never claim anyone else’s work as my own, I believe in giving credit where credit is due.
I am not making any promises of keeping this blog updated on a daily, or even a weekly basis. I will write when and if I want to write, instead of empty promises and hollow content. If you will stay the course with me, I will be glad of your company. It can be a pretty lonely world, this SAHM business. So let’s move on from the past and get ready for some not-so-smooth sailing ahead on the seas of life!
P.S – Do you think I should use my MummaLish facebook page more often? e.g posting blog updates etc? Thanks for your feedback
