or do I have FlyLady buddies in Buttercupland?
I've been getting FlyLady emails for years, but I generally just delete them. Over the weekend I was deleting email and I stopped to read a few of the ones from FlyLady, and something just clicked. I'm happy to say I just did the assignment for today, fifteen minutes straightening my bedroom. I set the timer on my phone and finished the basic straightening in seven minutes. Is anyone else following FlyLady?
For those who aren't familiar FlyLady is a fun, easy structure for "getting your house and life in order." Subscribers get daily emails and there's lots of inspiration. I'm not sure why it clicked this afternoon, but I am happy to keep going with FlyLady and hope to see a lot less clutter around me.
So enjoyed this extra day off from work. It dawned on me that there's only about a month left of winter and I was thrilled to see that it was still light out at 5:30. I ran an errand in Midtown -- West 57th Street -- and noticed that the Verizon store was close to empty. The store in my neighborhood is always crowded, at least on weekends and evenings when I can get there, and the wait for service can be an hour. I was happy to find there was no line -- they are in a business neighborhood -- and I got my new phone. My old phone was having problems charging and it was very frustrating to see that although the phone was plugged in the charger, it hadn't charged. I definitely have a learning curve with the new phone, but if I'm stumped I have a fourteen year-old friend I can call for advice.
Settling in for a cup of tea, the NY Times crossword and thoughts of when the fourth season of "Downton Abbey" will begin.
Have a warm and cozy evening!
