You know what CHAOS is, don’t you? It’s short for “Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome” and I have an extremely bad case.
Its primary symptom is a growing mountain of clutter taking over your home, and a heightened sense of loss of control over your “stuff.”
It could be fatal if I don’t get treatment asap. In waltzes “Fly Lady” and I can suddenly see order in my future.
Perhaps with her help I can escape CHAOS and have people over again.
Why did I think I needed telephone books from the last 10 years?! Paperwork from the 1980’s? Clothes that are out of date, in disgusting shape or don’t fit? Boxes to things we haven’t owned in a decade? School papers from my 38 year old son, etc. etc. ad nauseam.
I DON’T need these things, I don’t want these things and I no longer have these things!!! Out, out, out they went to the garbage can, to Goodwill, to the shredder. Still much more to do but what a great start – Thank you Fly Lady. She offered me some practical tips to attacking the monster and regaining order in my life. I began my day with the 15-minute boogie fling and I feel better already.
