Keeping the Plates Spinning

Hello, F.O.T.E.'s,
Well, the snow is gone. It was actually around 60 degrees here today. ! So, the snow melted. But, no worries! It's supposed to snow tomorrow! Yay, new snow! (did you hear the sarcasm?) I was getting tired of the old snow, anyway. LOL I do love snow, but once the temp hits 60, Spring Fever sets in for me...but, it's only January...
Hey, rejoice with me! This is the (count 'em) second night I've gone to bed with all the dishes washed--even the hand wash stuff! Yay for me! I guess I should say, all the dishes *I know of*. There are always a few hiding in cracks or crevices, avoiding the rigors of the dishwasher. You know the ones, when you find them you say to yourself, "Why was *that* *here*?" Anyway, someone call the FlyLady, quick!!! (Don't tell her, though, that I've stopped wearing shoes in the house. I find that the kitchen floor is swept and mopped much, much more frequently when I go barefoot. ICK! lol)
I announced to The Flock last night (after the last dish was washed) that we were no longer going to be eating or drinking. I acquiesced today, though, and allowed them to drink by holding their hands into little cup shapes. That doesn't work well for the soup, though--too hot. Ah well, the battle against grime must go on.
Maybe tomorrow I'll let them use the dishes again. ;-)
Must run...that rooster'll crow too soon.
Y'all keep your wool dry,
The Ewe

P.S. No children or husbands were harmed during the drafting of this post.

the one thing I never liked about flylady was the shoes in the house thing! But then I developed a heel spur and my doctor MAKES me wear a pair of tennies with inserts in the house. Ah well... :)

Love you much!

I'm with you shoes in my house. It is much more alarming to step on something gooey barefoot or in socks! ('oh, perhaps I need to sweep') Plus the outdoors don't get tracked in as bad. Not that I've mastered the clean home. LOL Speaking of....have you tried the "automatic" shower cleaner?


ps - no snow again...drat
