So, my kitchen turned into this:
At least here you can see that I had washed SOME dishes...
My kitchen is too small for this!!!
I KNOW! This is embarrassing! But my kitchen got like this after one day and with my focus on something else... I looked at my kitchen after our coffee fiasco this morning (totally different story that I refuse to digress to!) and after breakfast and thought, "I do not have time for this this morning. I need to do some schoolwork and then I need to finish my swaps for my Prairie Fairy event. I only have two weeks left and I'm no where near finished!" But I cannot stand it. I just cannot. So, I applied the FlyLady principle and set my clock for 15 minutes. I subscribed to her ideals many years ago, but do not follow them as ridged-ly as I should (as evidenced by my kitchen!). Within 15 minutes, my kitchen looked like this...
You can still see the soap on my counter!
Still not perfect, but better. I took pics just to show you how much you can get done in 15 minutes.
Another 7 minutes, and it looked like this:
So my point is this: We cannot do everything. We just cannot be the "Enjoli Woman". I don't believe it's possible. But we can take 22 minutes to make ourselves happy. For me, a clean kitchen is a happy Tracy. Now, I can focus on my schoolwork and on my swaps and maybe get a walk in with my sweetie. Of course, the rest of the house is a mess, but one step at a time.
Let's quit judging each other... and most of all, let's quit judging ourselves! Have a great day!
