From FlyLady's email today, a member's testamonial:"I made up a notebook, with all the routines in them, and last night, when I went out to see a movie withsome friends, I was able to say to my husband: "Just do the evening routine," and leave. When I came home all the kids were tucked sweetly in their beds, the dining room and kitchen were clean, the food was put away, dishes washed, living room picked up...it was not quite as perfect as if I would have done it, but I'm NEVER going to complain about three stray library books, because it used to be, that if I went out for some time out of the house, I would invariably come home to a huge mess, and feel punished for taking time off. My husband likes the order, and the availability of "domestic documentation" which enables him to not be mystified by what needs to be done around the house in my absence."This is just what I need, and have made. DH honestly has no clue about housekeeping. If I were laid up and he had to do it, he'd need written instructions or he'd be baffled. We joke about "boy clean" and "girl clean". His "boy clean" is 1. pick up and sweep the floor, 2. Take out all trash, 3. Close all cupboards and drawers, 4. Pour bleach on the black stuff in the shower. His bachelor home was neat but not nearly what I call clean.I made five pages, one for each week of the FlyLady month. Each had 3 columns originally, Daily, Weekly, and the Zone for that week. Today I added the fourth column which goes into more detail, e.g., noting that we dust with a damp cloth, or scrub the counter with barkeeper's friend cleanser.Reader99Documented
