Wish I'd jumped on this thread when I saw your first post. I took it as metaphorical.

My log cabin is a mess, as I've been, since losing my love (a month and a half). Allowing the garbage to accumulate outside of me as well as inside.

Saw your thread today and made some major progress. That start can be so hard. But it makes each step so much easier and fruitful. Thanks for the motivation.

All I can say is that the day isn't over yet.

Well,

when I was young I defined a man's faithfulness by sexual fidelity.
Later I defined as to whether he took the trash out faithfully daily....

I am single again, so what does that mean?????? LOL

What a great thread.



I did some laundry Sunday...and it's all over the place. At least it's clean...just in piles and extremely wrinkly.

Where is my motivation? I need to start throwing old crap away. I'm a pack rat.

You can't expect too much from men? Maybe its time to head over to the GLBT forums lol

God my apartment is a mess! I will definately finish cleaning today. But the question is.. will I do a half ass job or not?

Laundry day today.
I will use an old punch line from an older joke.
It is only a small load so I will do it by hand.

my roomie now is another gal...it doesn't make anything easier for me...in fact it is harder?

Got up took out the trash (took it out last night too but roomie got in a RARE mood and cleaned), washed dishes, (did those last night too)

I always like what I call the "common area" rule...the common areas..living room, kitchen, bathroom are always kept up out of respect because they are shared....whatever your bedroom looks like is no one else's business.

So I need to work on minding my business and making my bedroom my sanctuary.

So me....

I get this way, too.

What's been up with me is soooo many issues that basically wind up equalling I have a filthy house and still don't feel like cleaning it.

#1. I have been really sick - physically for about 5 months now...I almost think I'm getting better and I get hit hit 10 times worse. I can't seem to get well...and that is depressing enough all by itself....but.....

#2. When I am sick, my husband actually treats me like ****! He basically punishes me for not being well. He definitely doesn't do anything FOR me, he doesn't even try to pick up the slack around the house when I am sick, he screams and hollers at me for being lazy, sorry...then it gets ugly from there....

#3. As if 6 kids of my own shouldn't be enough for me to handle (yes 4 are "grown & gone" so to speak..but to anyone who has "grown" children knows---they are not "gone"), I still have a 10 year old and 9 year old at home.....so what does my husband decide to do...move my in-laws down from North Carolina to live with us so "we" (read ME) could "help" take care of them...they need to be in a nursing home...and let's just say my mother-in-law is well...a mother-in-law nightmare...and now the "woman of the house....so I guess I have some "displacemnet issues" there, as well...and lets just say my complicated marriage is now much more complicated...and I'm just more depressed....

#4. I have a 6 bedroom, 2 living rooms, 2 kitchens, 3 full baths overly large home...on my best days -- I need help keeping it clean...and I have not had a "best day" in a long, long, long time!

#5. My husband is ..hmmm...what is the worse curse word out there to describe a monsterous husband. We'll suffice to say the biggest improvement in my marriage is that he hasn't been physically abusive in about 5 years...but trust me, he has made up for it in his emotional abuse...(I know everyone will be screamming "why haven't you left? -- that's a whole 'nuther thread)

#6. I'm sick, I'm tired, I'm sick & tired...my house is absolutely a true representation of what is going on in the inside.

Well, I want to join in with ya'll and start changing my insides by working some on the outside at the sametime...this thread just hit so mightily close to home today...and I really do want to do SOMETHING! And I just got inspired by seeing someone else was struggling -- BUT DOING IT ANYWAY...and damnet...I want to, too!

So, so far, I swept off the stairs, I washed 2 loads of clothes and am fixing to get the ones out of the dryer and fold them & put the towels in the dryer.

I'm having my 10 year old unload the dishwasher & I'm going to try and load it before we have to leave to go to her softball game. And, yes my spirits feel a tiny bit better.

Thanks for the inspiration---hope we can continue to cheer each other on this week!

Chris B.

I am going back to the FlyLady.net: Your personal online coach to help you gain control of your house and home program

It has worked better for me than anything else.
