I think if nothing else was learned from Flylady those are three of the most liberating things you can take to heart! 1. Housework done incorrect/incompletely still blesses your family.
2. You are not behind, jump in whenever
3. Progress, not perfection!

When all your desires are distilled, you will cast just two votes: to love more and to be happy.

nothing to beat yourself about Rhoda! Remember we're doing this as a game to motivate one another to do our housework.

Two great mottos to reflect on:

⇒Housework done incorrectly, still blesses your family.

you did do some of our tasks. Those tasks are DONE and your house looks better because of that! And you feel better when you look at what you accomplished.

⇒ Progress, not perfection!

If we fail a day(or two or three), not a problem, we can jump back in at any time, and do just that little task for the day.

Enjoy the trip!

I have to say that I love this thread. But I got a little lazy at the end. Just haven't felt like doing anything and I have so much to do. I'm hoping for a better week next week. But I may have to go out of town and if I do that will really interrupt my schedule.

Happy to oblige Sara!

This is what we'll do: I'll start a new thread, ask the ladies to post the days there, and when we have the seven I'll edit my original post and include all seven tasks there.

So when you or anyone comes online, we can click on SORT FIRST ON TOP,and see all the tasks there, no scrolling needed.

Help! Can we start a new post for the coming week once we have all 7 things? Then I can easily find all 7 without haveing to scroll through everything! My computer time is limited, but I love you guys!

How about a pampering mission for one of the days? Pick something you really love that will feel good. (If it takes more than 10 minutes, that's OK.) Last week I had a pedicure. Now I smile every time I look at my toes!

I'm really starting to worry about the # of pounds I have to lose. Do you realize how many times I'm gonna have to go shopping for clothes? Oh my, emoticon .

Turning the mattress sounds good to me too. Okay, finished days 5, 6, and 7. Had to modify day 4, as I have no door jams or window frames. Did ceiling fans instead.

Goals 1, 2 & 3 plus #7 met Mon - Fri and I plan on doing today. Think I will have to pass on the sweeping and stretching for door frames due to my back - all in all a good week as DD works on laundry and DH did the bathrooms. I would be agreeable to another week. How about getting some help to flip or spin your mattress while the pad in in the laundry since this coming week is the master bedroom? This always gets DH involved. He's gotten to the point where he will ask "is this the week to do the mattress?" Guess you can train an old dog LOL

Hope you're totally recovered by now Sara!

Ok, CYnthia, will you forgive me but, I really need to use this icon: emoticon . I don't think I'll ever get another chance to use it! emoticon

So #4 goal not met: still a bit dizzy to do that.

#5 emoticon - the chosen room is the kitchen. Since it was not used, the kitchen table top disappeared under a load of papers, there are odd things on the kitchen counter- like med bottles-, and today I cooked for us again so that's more to wash! My nighstand looks good again. And I'm going to spend another 5 straightening my bedroom.

And we have our own expert in multi-tasking! I'm impressed GLoria!

Well, I'm getting ready to dust, and sweeping will come later in the day. Dloor frames, well, I just don't know qbout that one. Yesterday I had my once-every-five-week plasma exchange at the hospital, so I was in bed for the rest of the day after getting home. A bit slow on the uptake today, but I'm feeling better as the day goes along. I'll be fine tomorrow!

Okay, I thought I wasn't going to get Day 3 on day 3, but..............
Last night as I was washing dishes, and yes the timing was perfect, my shorts fell to my knees. DH fell to the floor laughing, and after the blushing, and lifting of the shorts, so did I. Guess the scales aren't always right. And I guess I really need to buy either smaller clothes, or at least a belt, lol.

So many messages, so little computer time. So, I will say here I finally got my kitchen swept and mopped Tues. The great thing was, I used the mop water to do my trash can. Between doing the floor and tackling the trash can emoticon I swept my patio and walked the trash out to the dumpster So that's #1 emoticon # 2 emoticon #3 emoticon # 7 Monday #7 Tuesday emoticon # 7 Wed emoticon and emoticon for my kitchen floor!

Yesterday I laughed, but not for 10 minutes. I got the hiccups, and it's so funny when I do that I can't keep from laughing. So far today, it's just been smiling, but that's good too! (Still have to do the trash cans.) And I shined the sink two days so far this week!

Poor Wookie!

I'll try that trash can with soda idea - I use the soda often for cleaning, but haven't thought about leaving it in the cans.

I will say that this Monday was trash day. Usually, the cans are left for ages with the assigned children not wanting to bag them and put them away. This Monday, though, I left the house for whatever reason it was that time, and when I returned, the cans had disappeared! They were bagged and put away as far as I can tell! Now my study & laundry rooms don't have trash cans yet, but I haven't found them elsewhere in the house!

Oh! The laughing goal is about the only one I've been able to do.

Day 2 emoticon , and because of the soapy water in my sink
Day 7 emoticon ,
and
since I had all that soapy water, I wiped the tiles around.
and
since the rag with which I had dried the trash can was damp but clean, I wiped the outside of my microwave and the cabinet where it is standing and the shelf where the toaster is standing!

Thanks Cynthia!

oh, btw, because of the soda bicarbonate, not only the inside of my trashcan was clean and it didn't smell bad, but it even SMELLED NICE!!!!

And Rebekah is right, we can't laugh until tomorrow! You and I and Cynthia have already messed it up! emoticon

Day 3 happens here daily, I live in a house of NUTS. So today I will relate yesterdays Day 3, lol.

Brief history: Julién, my 21 yr. old started life as a shrimp, always much shorter than everyone else his age, and everyone else in the family at his age. Then came 7th grade where he grew 8 inches in 3 months, and didn't slow down very much after. He is now 6'4" and is referred to lovingly as WOOKIE.

My ceilings are 6' 11.5". My ceiling fan blades, lower that to 6'5". We won't talk about the ones with light kits, lol.

Yesterday afternoon, when my Wookie came out of his room, hair raised, tangled, and looking like he just woke up, he passed under one of the ceiling fans, which of course whacked his hair down into place, and he released that Wookie growl he has so intimately perfected. He then began to duck and dodge, grabbing the fireplace shovel to defend himself. It left me in tears. And of course the wide swings around the fan with an occasional dodge here and there continued throughout the day.

I can't wait to see what the nuts have on the agenda for today. It's my youngest son's turn I'm sure as he has been quite docile the past few days.

Rhoda, how you do it, and if you do it at all is always your choice. Please do not feel forced to anything in this team.These are all just games we play to motivate one another to do the things that need to be done. It has to work for you!

Sara, sogood the team is working for you already! Remember that decluttering in one day is something only our MAD CHARYSE does!(just kidding Charyse! emoticon ). We have our DECLUTTERING thread always open and running, so you can take one thing daily from your patio daily and post it there, and you'll see how your list grows and your patio stuff decreases! Cynthia declutters regularly, and I have it always in my mind so when I see something that I no longer need,use or like, I toss it!One thing at a time!

Ok, trash can today. That'll be easy.
I have my baby wipes at hand always and clean the lid whenever something spills on it.
The inside is kept clean with soda bicarbonate and plastic bags. The soda keeps it smelling good and when I have to wash it, the bottom is clean in no time, just takes water and it's ready! I use a plastic bag which I put flat at the bottom in case something spills inside. All I have to do is throw the bag away and I'm ready. But the soda works even without the bag.

so, basically, I'll have to put the can in my sink (and do day 7 emoticon , thanks Sandy!) and brush the outside and the inside walls of the can.

I like it when it is this easy! emoticon

It'll take me a while to get used to checking in here, but I'll get there eventually! Thank you for the back porch sweep. Our back door opens onto a patio that is in dire need of decluttering, and it's too much to handle in one day, but I swept out from the back door and found something that needed to be fixed right away. I never would have noticed this if not for this topic, so thanks, everyone! I may try to deal with the kitchen garbage can today too...

If not now, when?

TRash can, in fact did two as we have the recycling box too, all done. The recycling took a bit longer so I let it soak (a half at a time in bleach water) and it was a lot easier. by the time I had finished Day 7 task was done too as the water cleaned the sink beautifully without any work from me. Very happy!

I think I did day 5 today. Do we have to do them in order. I also did day 3. Laughing is very therapeutic.

I'm glad you said something! I was afraid I'd never get done tonight doing all 7 of these chores! I can't tell you how relieved I am that it is one per day. Guess I better get out to the kitchen and start dinner and do some chores.

Back porch swept and then I thought I'd just do a little in the garden so it was a good starter. Now, what was day 2?
Ah yes, I really need to do this one and the trash went out last night so it is already empty.

#6 dust and sweep

Take a few minutes to take a duster the corners of a room, then dust the flat surfaces in that room and fixtures (like the ceiling fan), finish by running the sweeper.

#3. This is a repost from yesterday's blog. I challenge you to find something to make you laugh for 10 minutes each day this week. Whether it is watching a movie (try an older show like "The Cosbys" on YouTube), listening to a joke (a long joke), playing a trick on someone (make sure they think it's funny too), or playing with your kids (kids say the darnedest things), find something to tickle your funny bone for a full 10 minutes each day.

Thing is that we all have so much pressure and stress in our lives, we rarely look at the funny side. We rush around so much that we often don't stop long enough to do anything more than a quick chuckle. Well this week, I want you to try to remember what a good belly laugh feels like. Tickle the old funny bone and laugh until it literally hurts. Laugh so hard that it brings tears to your eyes.

Personal Motto: There, but for the grace of God, goeth I.

#2 Clean Kitchen Trash Can
Take out your trash, even if its not full and wash and rinse your trash can. Then either hand dry, or air dry and replace in kitchen.

1. Sweep the back porch.
It's pretty self explanatory so go for it. Where's my brush, I'm sure I saw it last summer!!!???!!! or maybe it was Autumn.

The first 7 people to answer this thread will post 7 tasks for the whole team to do this week.

There are members who spend most of their day outside the home so the tasks should not take more than 10 min.

The first person to answer will write

#1 The name of the task.
A brief explanation of what is to be done.

The second will do the same but changing to #2, and so on.

Are you game??
I am! emoticon emoticon

UPDATE:
I failed to clarify we do only one task per day. We don't want to get exhausted! LOL
