I mentioned last week that some changes had taken place at the Making It Home Yahoo Group. Not long after I joined, the format changed to that of a message board with forums. This was a good change, as the number of e-mails generated on the list each day was overwhelming at times. There are tons of forums on this board! There's plenty to learn from other ladies as we each seek to keep our homes. The message board is by membership only, just like the e-mail list, so you'll need to register to get in.
Having said that, I'm finding it hard to get that little oomph that I got from having the e-mail list with the daily reminders. As those no longer arrive, and they're not repeated at the message board, I miss them. I did learn to divide my home into zones and to touch each area of my home each week, which I enjoyed. I've found that I do well working in one zone all week, a la FlyLady, but I also like keeping in touch with my whole house, MIH style. Hence, I am coming up with my own plan, which is the goal of each system anyway! :) So at the risk of looking very fickle (not using one system or the other completely), I'm making my up my own stuff. We'll see how it goes.
So . . . my plan for this week is to stick to my morning and evening routines, and work in my kitchen/dining room/utility closet this week. I'm still focusing on the July habit from FlyLady, swishing and swiping the bathroom each morning as part of my routine. I'll let you know each day what I got done and how things are working out.
