...new tricks! Remember awhile back when I tried the Fly Lady clean sink thing? Honestly, it didn't last for very long, and I got bogged down in self-pity and discouragement (like usually happens when I don't get something right the first time - perfectionist, ugh!) - however, I determined to do what I could. Okay, maybe having an empty, shiny sink every single day was a little much. While Mark was gone for 10 weeks, I determined to never leave the kitchen a mess. I'm almost embarrassed to say that LOL - but yes, before this, I could leave the kitchen a mess and it wouldn't bother me...until I went into it again to do something else.
I realized tonight that I am officially in-the-habit of cleaning up my kitchen before moving on!!!! There is hope! I can change! It crept up on me, and all of a sudden, I just realized it.
So, for those of you reading this who might need encouragement or feel embarrassed about a habit you wish you could master, I have these words to say to you: it can happen. Like the Little Blue Engine, remember: "I think I can, I think I can...." :-) Just keep chugging!
Many people have said to me “What a pity you had such a big family to raise. Think of the novels and the short stories and the poems you never had time to write because of that.” And I looked at my children and I said, “These are my poems. These are my short stories.” –Olga Masters
