Carrie- you can switch to the "digest" for FlyLady's e-mails. You're right, there are toooooo many, but the digest helps a lot. I never did the post-its either. I like the idea of the daily missions, being reminded to do little oddball things that I don't generally think of unless I'm on a serious cleaning bender (which only happens if company is coming!)

I lived by Flylady standards for about 6 months. My home was amazing! I didn't 'do' the 31 steps. I didn't have post-it notes. But, I did all the challenges. I worked for 15 minutes in the zone. My closet was so clean, I could have had company over and served tea there! Even the corners were clean. Then, I got a part time job and got out of my routines. My house is messy again. Bummer! Maybe I'll revisit her, too. I miss clean corners.

I probably will switch to the digest pretty soon too. Thanks Auntie G. Like you said, I'm finding I like the little "kicks in the butt" they provide. So even if I don't run right away and spend 15 minutes cleaning by the front door, maybe I spend a few minutes doing something else, or I think of some other project that I want to take on.

I think i need to go back to Flylady and pick the things that seem doable and apply them. It seems that the people here, who have done things the Flylady way and have had success, have taken what worked for them and left the rest. I think that is an eminently healthy approach.

It's good to be back. I haven't posted in a couple of weeks but i've continued to stay reasonably on plan. I'm also reading, and taking what works, from a book called the Portion Teller.
