If Something Has to Budge….

OK, it was probably Miss PMS talking this week, but I kept thinking about the whole idea getting rid of some (optional) daily activity to be able to fit crafting into my daily routine. Obviously, I’m not getting rid of my Flylady chores. And, I guess, I don’t consider Flylady “optional,” anyway. What is “optional”? Well, this blog is.

If nobody is really reading this except Joey and me, I could probably muse without taking time to write it all down. Granted, I do find it helpful to write down my ideas and conclusions. But, it is somewhat time consuming (even though I do limit my writing to 15 minutes) to make the daily entries. If someone else were benefiting from my blog, I might justify spending the time. But if this blog is only for my benefit, then I am better served by taking time to craft.

Should I tell Miss PMS to be quiet? Or is this the solution to my dilemma?

    I read your blog almost daily thru googlereader, and I think you are inspiring. I’ll miss you if you go but totally understand why!

    I just found your blog. LOVE IT. I have 5 kids (10,8,5,3,3) and am by myself during the week while dh travels S-Th. My oldest has Aspergers as well so it is REALLY hard for me to keep the house clean. His example (throw trash on the floor, not flushing the toilet) is about to do me in! I used to Fly when i had just the 3 kids. Since the twins were born we have been living in CHAOS. I just started flying again, but it is hard for me to stomach FLYLADY when she only had 1 child! Thanks for your blog. It helps me to realize that if I just keep trying flying is possible with a large family.

    I am especially interested in how you do the Riley Challenge with your kids.

    Can you post pictures of your dd’s book with pictures that you made? I think that will help with my oldest as he is very visual and lives by “rules”!

    Thanks for the comment, Debra! One of my greatest hopes for this blog was that it would be of some encouragement to someone. We, too, parent children with developmental issues, so I can relate to your frustrations at times.

    It may take awhile, but I’ll try to get a photo up of Eleanor’s booklet, eventually. It’s really just simple pages that each contain a photo of one (tidied) area of her room with written clues about what to check for in that area.

    Best wishes getting Flylady to work in your life!
