Good afternoon Peg,

I just hopped on TMF here a minute ago and it seems you only just replied now. I have been spending less time online because in my region, we are undergoing a heatwave. My home computer setup is old and runs terribly hot and loud so I try to get on it as infrequently, and briefly, as possible during the heat.

Thus I greatly appreciate your timely reply now!

In 1999, I came across a website called Flylady.net.

Thank you for reminding me about that website. I think I read about this Getting Organized! a while ago, but I've forgotten to keep up on it. I have to clean up my home page (five websites tabbed now), but I should add Flylady.net and make it my main site. Excellent reminder each time I get online.

I still have a long way to go, but at least I'm making some progress. I have finally reached the point where I make my bed every morning, which seems like a small thing. But now I can make the bed, pick up things that don't belong in the bedroom, hang up my clothes, and keep the bathroom fairly tidy. It really makes a difference when I walk into the room, and I'm working on getting the rest of our home in order.

Your current situation is something I can only aspire to at this point. Glad to hear that the website has really helped you bit by bit. I have to remind myself, as you've already said, none of this clutter and hoarding happened overnight and the cleaning also can't be accomplished overnight, too.

Thanks again,
Lois Carmen D.
