I've joined a group on Ravelry based on the concepts at www.flylady.net where they use lots of acronyms like FLY: Finally Loving Yourself. And SHE: Sidetracked Home Executives.
I like the ideas here and I've been reading about the concepts a little, trying to absorb them through my skin so that I really feel like I can DO IT rather than doing it once and stopping. I'm getting my mind set in the right place about it.
And then today when I'm doing the dishes and trying to think about FLYing, blah blah blah... and I think the babies are watching Old Yeller.... I go to get them ready for their naps and discover this.
Emeline and Lila Pearl, the dear sweet angels that they are.... emptied the stuffing out of 2.5 couch cushions in the blink of an eye.
I walked into the room and they were both standing there with their fists full of white cushion stuffing. I remained amazingly calm. Picked up Lila Pearl and put her in the crib. Same with Emeline who was screaming the entire time "I DON'T WANT TO TAKE A NAP!!!" as I calmly picked up all the cushion fluff and stuffed it back into the cushions then zipped them up and put them on the couch. When Katie got home she sat on the couch and I asked if anything seemed funny about the couch. She looked at me strangely and said "Noooo....??" That's a good thing.
Where does this fit into the FLY concept? The theme for Monday is supposed to be "Home Blessing Hour" where you spend 10 minutes working in 7 different zones of your home. Ugh. Every bit of motivation was blown after this.
These two are determined to make me completely insane. I'm sure of it. It was definitely a "I'd like to run away" moment.
They're lucky they're so darn cute.
