Fly lady

The winter time blues are in full swing.  The depression.  I don't want to move or get out of bed.  The days get shorter, the weather gets cold and I want to hibernate like a bear.

News Flash!

I have 4 kids.  Not small toddlers but they still need their mom.  I have a husband that needs me to be there for him.  The house needs to be clean.  School work needs to get done and I have a business to run.

Fly lady to the rescue.

Bed made and dressed to shoes.

Anything can be done in 15 minutes!  

Today I am going to fly.

Yesterday, Dragon helped me re arrange our bedroom.  Today I am going to unpack two boxes and get rid of 25 items.  Time to fling ding the bedroom.  I have too much STUFF and not enough places to put it.  I know we will be moving again.  We just don't know when yet but I want to be ready.

Ps.  I was going get my scene yesterday but it didn't happen.  I ended up in a dark bedroom with my head hovering above the pillow.  Migraine!  Yuck.  Nausea, sensitive to light, dark, sound.  Everything made it worse.  I couldn't even lay my head down on the pillow but I couldn't hold my head up either.  The good news is that it is gone this morning.  The bad news?  Dragon is at work.

Oh well.  Maybe next time....


  1. I love Fly Lady!
    If I had more time these days, My house would be ship shape again. I love that website.

    Glad that your migraine is gone, but it stinks you didn't get your scene. I have had two nights (the only ones where we didn't have to get up early the next day) that we were supposed to have some "alone time" only I ended up passing out once the babies fell asleep.
    I don't know which I needed more... some one on one with him, or that sleep. I'm missing the closeness today.

  2. Glad the migraine is better. Hope you get your scene soon.

  3. I don't think any of us got a scene. The first day we had a chance company showed up and the next day they sent our youngest home from work as soon as she got there because it was slow. Glad you're feeling better today.

  4. Awww, I'm glad you're fighting through those blues and feeling better today!


  5. I love fly lady too!!!
    I need to actually do what she says lol. I'll get off track and it's not as easy to jump back on. Glad you're feeling better!!

  6. Sorry about your migraine and not getting your scene Rose. I've heard others who love Fly Lady also...keeping active (it is very hard) will help keep those blues away.

    Wishing you and Dragon the scene you want soon.


  7. I never did get shoes on or the bed made. However, two more boxes got unpacked and a LOT of stuff hit the trash can. Yippee! Progress. Pooh cleans the kitchen and Mina does the laundry. So I don't have to worry about those things.

    1. oh. I even had a dinner plan! Supper has been in the crock pot since noon. 15 bean soup. Yummy.

  8. If it makes you feel any better, I rearranged my bedroom 2 weeks ago and I'm fighting at the end, fighting through all the leftover junk now myself. Winter is tough and makes us move so much slower, ugh! Take some vitamin D and get those shoes on. Ok, so today I never even got out of my pj pants, who am I to talk? LOL! Glad your migraine is gone, and hope you're able to kick the blues! Oand have time w/Dragaon!)
