Tackle it Tuesday #120 09/08/08

I’m doing it, I’m really doing it. What’s that you say? I’m gonna get my sink shiny. I know I can’t keep it that way, but I want to log 30 days of a shiny sink. Its a huge goal for me. I don’t always have dirty dishes in my sink, a lot of times they are clean, but draining. Sometimes I leave things soaking, and then its yucky the next morning. I’m shinning my sink for me. I want it to smile at me in the morning. I’m sure it will take more than a month for me to get this habit down pat, but when I reach it I want you to help me choose a treat for myself. Ok going to wipe down my sink. If anyone puts something in it over night, they will be in sooo much trouble!

Another New Begining

I have been a Flylady follower and reader for more years than I can remember. I know that her routines will work for me, but I’m just not consistent. I’m wanting to start from scratch with her babysteps and a simple control journal. I have a pretty nice one already made, but never look at it. I have a small version made now that can be anywhere with me, and not take up a ton of room. I will post pictures as soon as I can. My friend Tammy has a new page written out here if you’d like to see her routines. Multitasking Mama has links to control journals and Household notebooks here.

Join me with Baby Steps to a life with out Chaos.

Super Fling Boogie Week

This week we’ve been moving Mr. Polka Spot and making room for him here at the farm. I’ve flung so much stuff this week I don’t think there is room for anything else until we go drop of things at the dump. GO ME!!

Hopefully I will get back to regular posts when everything is back in order. Until then happy flinging everyone.

I’ve always wanted to be a princess. What girl doesn’t? I was kidding around with N a few weeks ago and mentioned it. I’d had a rough time, and he was MIA for several days, but when things came together he called me Princess. It was out of the blue, and I really hadn’t thought that he’d listened. I told him about the book The Five Love Languages. I’ve not read the entire book, but it is pretty neat. So basically I told him that my love language is words of affirmation, and we figured out that his is touch. So after that really bad week, and he called me Princess and told me that he missed me, I cried.

Today I’ve been listening to the Fly Show. There is a lot of talk about loving yourself. One thing that Leanne said that really stuck with me today, is that I am the daughter of a King!!!! I am a princess!!!! I am not in my castle yet, but my home awaits me. I will serve my King until it is time for me to go home. Why shouldn’t I love myself as much as my King does? If I am worthy of being loved by my King, why can’t I love myself? I’m not saying I hate myself, but sometimes I just really need that extra hug, or pick me up.

Now I just need to find ways to love myself. I’m a princess, so who doesn’t love being a princess. Maybe I should make my own tiara so that I can pretend while I’m at home. I think that I’m mostly worried now about if other’s love me. If I don’t change my “stinkin thinkin” I will never be able to show my kids how to love themselves.

Mission: I’m going to remember to do something special for me every single day! I will put a sticker, or something to mark it on my calendar and report back here about my progress.

Holiday Time

Today I have been contemplating the holidays. We have 3 birthdays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas coming up soon. Halloween is in order so far. My son’s birthday is still up in the air. He’s the kid that wanted a baby goat for Christmas a few years ago, and gave back the game boy and all the games that he received. I’m sure that we will be at my mom’s for Thanksgiving, but I need to come up with something to cook for that day. Then there is my birthday, which is my 29th. Told my friends that I want a big party, because its my last birthday ever. Then Mom’s birthday, I should do something special for her, but I know that I will be super busy. FlyLady is helping get me on my way with her “Cruising Through the Holidays” Between all of this I have school, and a computer that’s just not working correctly. How I wish that I could just snap my fingers and it would be done. Today I’m having enough problems with just getting my hair dry and fixed.


I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday season, and I’ll update you on how mine goes along the way.

After this weekend going horribly wrong in some ways and horribly right in others, I chucked it up to some sort of PMS. Although my PMS really should have been 2 weeks ago (which it was) and I should have started Thursday (and didn’t) PMS rulled my life this weekend. Then I wake up this morning with my devotion in my mailbox from Proverbs 31 Ministries

Basically the writer had the same problem that I did all weekend, and read a verse that basically told her to take her problems and hand them over to Jesus and walk away. Its like choosing to be well, instead of walking around grumpy. That is all it takes.

This weekend I eventually stopped pouting and thought to myself that if what I’m looking for happens, it will find me. I’m gonna stop looking. It was a light bulb moment. Wait for them to find you, and chase you down….lets see if it works. NO more calling, NO more emails, NO more text messages or IM’s. They send me something, sure I’ll be nice and reply, but that’s it. I deserve friends that deserve me. I deserve not to be left out of the loop until they decide to let me in. I can’t fix anyone that doesn’t want to be fixed…and they can only ask for advice and I can only give them advice, they have to follow it.

So far today I have my menu finished, dressed to shoes, shopping list ready, and gonna see what I need if anything to make Leanne’s Taco seasoning to keep on hand, instead of buying that stuff constantly. Kids will be fed well this week, if all goes to plan. PURPLE TEAM will rule!

By the way, I notice that I have people from all over the world that have checked out my blog. I was amazed. I just wish people would let me know that they are here. But then again, I do the same thing. I stalk the lady from Liquid Paper all the time…maybe I should let her know that! lol!
