My Shiny Sink

Filed under: Baby Steps — my3daughters @ 2:48 am

A few days ago, I told the girls to clean up their room.  They thought they did.  I thought they didn’t.  I couldn’t figure out how two intellegent girls just shy of 13 and 11 could not get the concept of cleaning their room. 

Today it hit me–just like everything else in life, this is something that needs to be learned.  I had never really taught them this skill.  I had taught my oldest daughter, now 18, but then the divorce happened and life as we knew it fell apart.

More than three years have passed since the divorce was final and I moved out of the house.  I’ve been doing just what needs to be done to maintain, both myself and my home.  It’s time for a change. 

Today I went to www.flylady.net.  I took the first Baby Step and now I have a Shiny Sink.  I have a cluttered counter but a Shiny Sink.  Tomorrow I will take another Baby Step.  Each Baby Step gets me closer to my goal of turning my apartment into a haven for my family, a safe place for us to live and grow.
