This housecleaning thing I am doing. It's based on the "SHE" system that I discovered and used several years ago. It worked then, for a while, but somehow I slipped out of the habits and was back where I began. Only this time instead of a box full of index cards, I get about fifteen email reminders every day. That's how it works. A mailing list. Plus a web site that defines things, offers direction, suggestions, and encouragement. All this and more at flylady, and all free.
The web site has an overwhelming following. I AM NOT ALONE. Oh, I knew that, of course, but here I can even chat with others if I am so inclined. I'm not, yet.
