FlyLady has a great 31 baby step plan so as to not overwhelm the flybaby who wants to gain control of her life again. Rather than jump into the deep end of the pool and overwhelm myself, I’m going to embark on these baby steps.

Today is Day 1.  She says

Day 1

Go Shine your sink.
you will keep it shiny by drying it out after each
time you use it and making sure when you go to bed that it is shining so
it will make you smile in the morning. This is how I get to hug you each

I can do that!  And, I have to tell you – for me – it really is wonderful to wake up to a clean sink.  If you don’t understand – try it!  You’ll see!

I woke up wondering “2008. What will that bring?

  • A new family member?
  • A permanent home?
  • 21st anniversary
  • A 8 yr old
  • A 12 yr old
  • A 13 yr old (tomorrow!!)

I tell you – just those ‘possibilities’ can make a woman a bit fearful. I can only cling to the Hope I have and put one foot in front of the other.

Before I got out of bed I decided a few things will change this year…

  • I want to find a way to save our memories – and not just on this blog. Not sure if that means scrapbooking. More likely it will be digital scrapbook. Julie – look for me to be contacting you real soon about what that means! 🙂
  • I’m going to start FLYing again. After my pregnancy, moving to California and losing Joshua – I got out of the habit of my schedules. I miss knowing that I can welcome unexpected company joyfully. I miss waking up to a clean sink and a plan for the day! So, I’ll be making some babysteps very soon. I’ll plan to be accountable here.

That’s really it so far. These are really big things in the ‘big picture’ while allowing me to be flexible for what “might be”.

Blessing to you all, my friends.
