FLYing challenge

Hey there facebook buddies! If you haven't noticed, but this past Friday night I've decided to get this website a chance. My best friend, Lamis shared this awesome site with me about a month ago but didn't really explore it. Since Samantha, my daughter started school, I needed to get things in order. I wished I had a gift of being agenda-oriented, organized, and put together, but I am a scattered brain; I start one job and work on it but I won't complete it to the end. I needed something to help me to stay focused and stay on track. So I dug deeper on FlyLady and buckled my butt down (so to speak) and do it. She said it will take about 28 to 31 days to get into the habit of the morning, afternoon, and evenings routine and do not give up. In order to keep me motivated she developed a system where I can post the routines at the kitchen, and the bathroom sink. These post-it things are a must for me! Along with the post-its at the sink and bathroom wall, I have a small 3-ring black binder that is my "Control Journal. This binder goes everywhere I go, that way I can modify my daily routine (Sun through Mon.) and keep on track on that day's schedule. When you open it, you will find post-its on the flap-these post-its consists of the basics that need to be picked up the grocery store on Sundays, weekly deals at the local grocery store, and the most important thing, my scripture reminder (Proverbs 3:5-6 and 2 Timothy 1:7). Then I have a pencil case filled with colored markers to use. Then I have my Scriptures that I mentioned above all written out so I can read it everyday. Then I have my morning, afternoon, and evening routine written down and lastly I have my weekly routine down. Since this is my first week of this challenge, I am going to modify each day as it passes. Then I have my Husband's morning, afternoon, evening and weekly routines. Also, I have a folder that has my "Turn those negative comments into positive comments." and weekly grocery receipts. Then I have a folder for my daughter that has her routines inside and lastly I have a spiral notebook in the back pocket; this is where I jot down things and rip out the pages and stick it in the proper place. My 45 min. of computer is almost over and I need to return to my routines! God Bless and have a blessed day! I will add pictures tomorrow.
