4/28 thru 5/4/03 FLYbabies :-) - Page 2

post #31 of 98
I laid down for a little while this afternoon. When I got up I did my mystery shopping paperwork, did a 5 minute run on the living room, vaccuum the living and dining room, took a basket of full clothes to upstairs to be put away during bedtime routine, easier that way because Brent can watch Adam for me and I can get it done without him "helping" me by undoing everything I folded. Defrosted dinner....wrote down a couple recipes I wan to try out on the kids....helped Alex do homework...he spends 15 mins when he gets home on homework and then another 15 mins at 7pm before he gets ready for bed.

I still have to do dishes but at this point I'm waiting till after dinner...so I can go to bed with a shiny sink!!!!!!

post #37 of 98
Ok here is my 'report' lol

On my way home from work I stopped at the supermarket to grab a few things. got home put them away. Hung up my keys, unpacked my back, refilled water bottles, put them back in bag, along with clean rags.

Put a load in the dryer, one in the washer and folded the one that was already in the dryer. Ironed my uniform for tonight, and laid out the rest of my clothes for tonight. Put the next lot of washing in the dryer.

Cleared and cleaned kitchen benchs, cleaned stove top properly (Des trys but...... and he was not here to see me redo it ), emptied rubbish, shined sinks and stainless steel part of the bench - I have 1 and 1/2 kitchen sinks - put baking soda and vinegar down the kitchen plugholes to clean them out. Was going to wipe cupboard fronts and the fridge down but Des had already done it Oh yeah he also put meat out to defrost for dinner, that man is really trying to FLY, gotta him.

Put snack out for the kids when they get home from school (covered with plastic wrap of course)

I'm going to see how it goes with having my shower at night when I get up, I may switch to having a bath in the morning as that may help me relax enough to sleep. Here it is 12.30 already and the kids will be home at 4pm.
post #38 of 98
Oh yeah, I gotta get my Insulan back on track, with the weird hours I work I keep forgetting to take it............ for a couple of days at a time, my blood sugars are horrible and I am constantly tired, nauseous and thirsty. So I am going to work that into my daily routine as well.
post #39 of 98

post #40 of 98

Helped Alex with book report, swept floors again, took a bath, wiped down the sink and toilet. Picked up living room for bedtime routine, put away 2 loads of laundry actually 3 since one basket was so full it was falling over have another in the dryer for tomorrow, went outside for 20 mins to pull a few weeds in my flower garden, now I'm here trying to relax while Brent is upstairs waiting...I need a little me time I hear him coming down guess I better go spend "minutes" with him

post #45 of 98
I was a bad flybaby yesterday afternoon. We took Michael to the pediatrician for an appt. I left the house at 1 PM and we did not get back until after 6 PM.

It was so crowded at the pediatrician's office and waiting for the prescriptions. We got Long John Silver's fish to eat and I had to clean up the mess the workcrew left behind! There were nails and pieces of wood all over the patio area and they even tracked in stuff in the living room.

After cleaning all that up I was too tired to do my Flybaby stuff.
Please forgive me...

Sandra, honey, you don't have to ask us to forgive you, you have done nothing wrong!!! The important thing is that today is another day and you are never behind, you can join in where you are!!

Ladies, reading over this made me teary (I am a very emotional person, please excuse me) but I am sooooo proud of everyone!! Some of you have obstacles in your life that make FLYing even more challenging and you are all overcoming everything to make your homes a safe haven.....and there are so many shiney sinks!!!! Everyone deserves a round of applause for the FABULOUS effort that was put into our first day....go ahead, look at your moniter and SMILE....really GRIN, like from ear to ear...we are doing sooooo good!!!

Now for my report I did FLY all day yesterday! No problems, I even ventured away from my BABY STEPS a couple of times to take big steps but I did so bad on my diet so I have gotten up this morning in a terribly depressed mood. I am working on changing it
I'm off to set my timer
post #47 of 98
Thanks Shiela,

I feel better now! You are right today is another day and I can fly!
post #48 of 98
Well, so far I haven't gotten too much done the boys had a late arrival. I have a shiny sink, i've done my paperwork for the day, sson to check out my shops site to see if there are any more jobs for this month, talked to grandma to see what i have to do over there tomorrow, made out my shopping list for Walmart tomorrow. checked my appointment book, cleaned up after breakfast.

I still need to do a little laundry but Adam was not a good sleeper last night and he's sleeping right now so in a bit I'm gonna lay down too...I have the rest of the day...oh I did clean up a hot spot and did a 15 minute roundup...guess I am doing ok....want to mop kitchen and bathroom floors today when I have time later on.

I needed a me day since the rest of the week is very very busy, tomorrow I'll be lucky to even get on here until after 7pm so if you don't see me don't worry, I'm FLYing at Grnadmas and doing shops and Walmart. Thursday is a "free" day so to speak, not going anywhere so that's my catch up day...but there will be no dirty dishes when I leave this house tomorrow morning Then Friday the boys have their annual Spring Fling so I'll be gone alot then too......anyway good luck to all I'm proud to see everyone doing good.....

SANDRA as far as I'm concerened you did do some FLYing yesterday wouldn't you call the "construction" area for now a "HOT SPOT"? Just thought if you looked at it that way you'd see that you did do some FLYing yesterday
post #49 of 98
I am doing good today got a good start on the laundry. The 15 min I spent in the twins' room was all it took to get it clean! Going to finish the dishes and shine the sink and that is probably all I will get done today because I have a ton of appointments to get to later today.

post #51 of 98
I got up late at 8 AM.

Washed up, dressed to the shoes
brought down laundry for the day
check appts

8:30 AM
Greet workcrew that is remodeling our patio/sunroom
Check Hot Spots
set aside what's for dinner
Declutter for 15 minutes
check email for FLYLady reminders and print out stuff for my FLYLADY book that I made for myself.

9:00 AM Tim orders breakfast for us. "yum yum!"
laundry where is it?
I am weating my shoes!

9:30 reboot laundry

10 AM We took a walk around the neighborhood. The workcrew in our apartment is making quite abit of noise with their nail gun and hammers so Tim thought it would be a good idea to get out of the house.

It kept me from my FLYBABY chores but my family comes first so we took the walk. WE went by the thift store and got Michael 3 dress shirts and a book for $7.50.

Tim bought me a beautiful garden tote that is semi transparent with roses on it. It has a matching coin purse and sunglass tote.

I am now playing catch up on my FLYBABY morning. Got the laundry half way done and I am decluttering the kitchen. I can't clean my flyzone[living room) until the workcrew leaves for the day because thye are tracking in dirt and coming in and out the front door with the insulation for the sunroom/patio room/or whatever you want to call it.

I think I can catchup but I am way behind today.
post #52 of 98
Here is what I can do if I cannot do my zone,

I can declutter Michael's play pen that we used as a toy bin.
It is in the living room so I guess it can count as my working on my zone.
post #53 of 98
Ok--I've got a question about this morning routine thing. I get up, get dressed and out the door before DH ever gets out of bed. So, I can't very well make the bed with him in it. Should I do somethign else in its place?
post #54 of 98
you can always do it later
or get him to do it
post #55 of 98
or even better yet...do what I did this morning...I made my side of the bed...even while dh was still sleeping
post #56 of 98
Or push him out!! Make him sleep on top of the made-up bed!!

Sorry. *breathe deep* under control, I think.

OK, since I crawled out of bed at 7am:

*got all three kids to school
*washed dinner's dishes and shined the sink
*cleaned the bath while washing C's hair
*got Boogies from school 2 hrs early 'cause they said she's got lice
*took 3 seperate naps
*listened to all of HP2 and Monsters, Inc and half of Patch's London Adventure (most of HP2 while I napped)
*washed three loads of clothes and hung them up inside to dry
*tested out one of the bubble solutions I made; works great!
*punished the kids with grounding (that's not working) because they got into the icing TWICE
*avoided thinking about dinner
*ignoring all of Angela's screeching and yelling
*ignoring all of Brandon's and Caitlyn's mean actions towards Angela
*swept all of the kids' toilet paper mess back into their bedroom

Sandra, Rebecca is right! You did FLY yesterday!! and WTG Rebecca- what a beautiful attitude You are FLYing!!

Keep FLYing!!!
Michelle, you just keep shining that sink and if someone keeps putting dirty dishes in it, we'll send Roxanna up there You are really FLYing girl making the bed with DH still in it

As for me.....I got a late start today, I woke depressed about my diet yesterday

But I did FLY yesterday and I have been FLYing today, but I still haven't done any decluttering or 27 fling boogies..just up and dressed to the shoes, shiney sink all day and night last night, all three beds made, very little time on BabyU and now I'm off to have dinner and go outside and cut some grass.
I can do anything for 15 minutes

Good Wednesday morning to my FLYbuddy!!! Hope you had a good night!

No flying here today.... got home late this a.m. from work... had a battle of the wits with a pg test.. AND LOST! Checked in at Baby U, put the dishes in the dishwasher, washed my face, brushed my teeth & went to sleep about 12:30 pm. Got up about 5 pm.... had another battle of the wits & I think I lost again! DH decided he needed to eat dinner... who'da thunk so we raided the fridge for leftovers, then put the dishes in the dishwasher, shined the sink & here I am. Gonna finish here at Baby U & take another little nap. Have to work again at 11 pm. Uggh... I LOVE MY JOB, I LOVE MY JOB...
