Thalia left me a comment with a link to The FLY lady so I went over to have a look.
This is what she says: Are YOU living in CHAOS (Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome)? Do you feel overwhelmed, overextended, and overdrawn? Hopeless and you don’t know where to start? Don’t worry friend, we’ve been there, too.
Step through the door and follow FlyLady as she weaves her way through housecleaning and organizing tips, with homespun humor, daily musings about life and love, and anything else that is in her mind.
Her step 1 is to shine your sink! This is a task I do not relish. I have blogged about my hate of dishes before here and who can forget how the dishes outside but I really do hate feeling embarrassed when people come over so I have decided to give her tidying, de-cluttering organizing program a whirl, after all I will need all the help I can get. She said a clean sink is a good habit to get into and a good starting point. So I am off to clean the sink. Apparently there is a whole sink cleaning tutorial
Mine does not look quite as shiny but hey I spend 20 minutes longer cleaning a sink than I have done in all my life.
