Thirteen minutes.

I have been following FLYlady for a few months now. I have to say sometimes I think it is a little hokey, but all in all it is sound, good advice. I have said it before and I will say it again, I keep a pretty clean house. But lately, my house has never been cleaner. And really it has never been easier.

So much so that I declined to have our housekeeper return. I know, CRAZY right. However, I did lobby for a ridiculous luxury gym membership in lieu of the housekeeper.

So this afternoon in thirteen minutes I:

-unloaded the dishwasher

-loaded the dishwasher

-folded a load of clothes

- put away a load of clothes

-wiped down my kitchen counter tops

-got the coffee pot ready for the morning

-made Gia's yogurt for the morning

-made Gia's lunch for tomorrow

-made a pot of tea

Now I am back at my desk working and enjoying my pot of tea. And my house is clean, and I get to go to that ridiculous luxury gym this afternoon. Hey, hokey or not the FLYlady has some great tips. You should check her out here.
****oh, and I LOVE Yogi tea because of the sayings (and the Peppermint is the most like fresh peppermint) and one of my tea labels says, "We are here to love each other, serve each other and uplift each other." Marla may not be a Yogi, but I really do think this is at her core.

getting things clean with time leftover to relax has got to be one of the best feelings. Props to you!! :)

How is the flylady coming along? I tried doing what she suggested, but always seem to get behind a couple of days later. I'm really type-A and like everything to be just so, I also like being organized but never can seem to catch up on much!
