Hello Everyone. I have tried to do the SHEs and Flylady several times. Had great success at one point then life changed, not in a good way, and it all went downhill quick. I am back now, hopefully for good, with a new life and a fresh start. I have been on here as Freshie and Fresh Start. I am sure there are other names I can't remember too.

My BF and I have moved into a new home and I would love to start it out organized and keep it that way. Decluttering as I unpack things. Oh and organizing of course. I have tried to put together a control journal several times with no success. I remember the system using index cards and am thinking of setting those up again.

So, hello again and hope to get to "see" you all around. It's a great place for motivation and encouragement :)

Um, HI! I used to be cheary or cheary-o and I guess that on AIM I was chearyshe (I think). I have been going to the FL chat. Not to worry if I can't remember! I've got CBM (Chronic Barn Mush)...a common SHE malady, I think.

See ya's!

Excuse the typ[os, keyboard messed up[!!


Coping center? I am asking, because I was in for a time, (not my choice, though I didn't fight it), in a place... mine was a medication reaction, coupled with a fight with husband.

CathyS, Were you at the smaller SHE boards they call the Village? :?: I recognize your name, but don't know if you're the same person.

chearyshe, I love your user name. :D

Starting Fresh, Yes, it's challenging to be organized and decluttering as you unpack things is a smart idea. If you thought about going into the card file system, Pam Young's new book, "The Joy of Being Disorganized," is very good. She tells readers, rather then we looking at ourselves as housekeepers and homemakers, to look at ourselves as peacemakers and peace-givers, because after we declutter, organize, we have peace in our homes with ourselves, inside our minds and hearts and with our families and others. :idea: :D It's a wonderful book, she talks about the 3 x 5 cards, too.

Its Me bensgal.....I just added some pretty's before and after my name. Same ole me, Wife, Mom, MoeMoe (granny to 10 with one on the way in the oven!!!!! :D . Still wife to my soulmate and best friend since 6th grade, 25 years this past March, mom to 3, DS28, (7 grandkids between him and his fiance, blending families) DD24 (1 grandbaby girl and one in the oven!!!! and blending family with boyfriend and his son), DD22 (1 grandbaby from boyfriends blending family, A Grandbaby Girl), daughter to same sweet drive me nuts mom, best in the world.

Needing to get back on the wagon. Finally realized that I can do whatever I put my mine too. I realized that I have been waiting for the right time to come...it wont come I have to go to it. I realized I have to make myself happy, not wait for that magical moment that everything is as I dream it to be. I realized that it is going to be hard to change, I wont want to, but I have to make myself, when my brain tells me I cant do it. I have to get up and do something instead of sitting there thinking about how to motivate myself. I just have t get up and move, no matter if it is only for 15 minutes at a time, it is more done that I would have if I just sat there thinking about it but not doing it. I realized that when I ask someone to do something for me, that I have to accept if they do it differently, and that once I deligate a chore to someone it is their responsibility to do it. It is their time they are using up if they arent efficient about it. Once I ask someone to do something, I can then go on to do the task that I need to be working on.

I realized all this after listening to "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pauch....this was my 3rd time listening to it...before I heard the jist of the lecture, but the other night I decided to take notes, stop and repeat what I thought was important and really soak it in. It was like a light bulb went off, and since I have been listening to and taking notes from Time management specialist. I have a plan now , and of course my Dear SHE'S fit right in with it. I know I can get the support and encouragement that I need, and the help that I can lend to those that are also in need.

So glad to be back, cant wait to see everyone!! Love ya! :!: :!:

Re: did you change your user name? It's ME Shes_A_Flygirlie

Post by *~*Shes_A_Flygirlie*~* » Sat Dec 05, 2015 7:16 pm

Hello All!

OG - Original gangSTAR - From even the older She forum!

I have been away for FAR too long! I came back in a while ago under another user name for a while lauriev767 (I think!)

Woke up this morning and realized I needed to go back to my original handle! I literally feel the burst of energy just the gut feeling that I need to be back! AND, I needed to come back as Flygirlie, so I can connect with my former SHE board friends and my name just makes me feel good! Basically, I need to channel this inner Flygirl who is ready for some stability, balance, and routine in my home! I've been adding lots and lots of knowledge to my tool kit for getting my $hit together! My year has been life changing. But, my home still needs work!

When I started (long long ago) I think I tried a couple negative handles.... I believe Stressed was in my user name! The girls here made me change my name like immediately. WHAO! #deep This made the biggest difference!

I am notorious for getting lost during the middle of challenges. I SET THE INTENTION right here and now.... to follow through! I have thought long and hard about this, and It because another thing that was weighing me down. For example I go to Fun and Games board and write out all this stuff on my to-do list and then just disappear, because I had not accomplished any thing on the list! That brought on more bad feelings! Which led to less action or no action.

I did find MY game changer, when I signed up for a Feng Shui course. Only to have my MIND blown and it was/IS so much deeper than that. It's not really about the mess, but the mess has to go. So, I really dug deep and got to the root of my issues and YES I have issues! It takes very little to get me off the "clean home" track and once again be in the middle of clutter central.

Well, hello from Clutter Central! Piles and piles and piles ...messy messy and I can't believe I let it get this bad... again!

Gonna jump over to the Fun and Games and work on three things at a time!

Much love to you all! Happy to be back and I expect y'all to hold me accountable.

XOXO,
Laurie



My inner flygirlie is burred with too much to do and surrounded by clutter!

I used to be Hopeful.... well, I'm still hopeful :lol: I'm now in a very different place in life, married to a wonderful man, kids are moving their way through high school and I'm super busy at my payroll job. I realized recently that I needed to get a few things under control... like my house and my health. I started thinking back to when I felt I had my stuff together and realized that these boards were a big part of it. Unfortunately, during that time I slipped into depression, got a divorce and threw myself into 60 - 70 hour payroll weeks. :?

But now I'm back! And taking baby steps. :D

I was, in the very, very beginning, Chris. Then there were too many of us, so I switched to ChrisB, but then, as the list grew, there were two or three Chrisses who's last name started with the letter B. So, I switched to Crispy because it's what ChrisB sounds like spoken quickly. And since then, I've continued with Crispy.
