An experiment, of sorts

I'm currently conducting an experiment here at Casa Bedhead. I'm trying to see just how full the bathroom trashcan can get before someone besides me empties it. The lid is no longer able to close. There are tissues and Q-tips (ewwwwww) about to fall out the side. I'd take a picture, but it's pretty embarassing.

Has anyone tried FlyLady? I signed up and her little task email things are helpful, but some of the testimonial stuff is making me roll my eyes a lot.

That Flylady just pissed me off. She sends about 1000 emails a day and her first million lessons are about putting shoes on and shining your sink. I was like "Bitch, just give me a list of what to clean, ok?" but she quickly became overwhelming and tedious.

I'm just sayin.

I love the bathroom trash experiment. My prediction is that you will cave before they do.

Trust me - you'll cave with the trash can before anyone else will.

Been there.

Done that.

Tried flylady - couldn't do it. There's just no hope for me - no matter how hard I try, at least one room (usually more) is trashed by toys, books, or kid-made forts with blankets all over the place.

Good luck!

I really loved Flylady for awhile - threw myself into it and just loved the way that my job as a SAHM now involved checking my email. Now, I delete the emails and do the stuff that worked for me: mainly the evening routine (clean sink, coffee in the coffee-maker) and the weekly blessing (which I still love). I tried the shoes for awhile and never saw the point.

Flylady in digest form sends it all once a day, and you can do what you want and discard the rest. I liked the concept of Flylady, but got overwhelmed with everything when I wasn't home all day.

But I still make the bed and keep the sink clean pretty regularly.

I totally third Suebob's thing! I'm telling ya, it got to the point where I was afraid to check my email because that wench just kept piling on the work. Theoretically, a good thing. In reality, over-fucking-whelming.

I tried Flylady and although I kept my sink shining for about a week, I didn't keep up with it.

Like Jamie said, you'll cave before anyone else does.....

I tried that this weekend. I even had a piece of poopy toilet paper (thank you Gracie) on the top. I caved, even though I MENTIONED to Bob that he empty it....Two days later and it is still full, but even more so, with the poopy tp still on the top (how did that happen?) figures.

Flylady? I have tried that a couple years ago, if your garbage weren't so full I think I'd gag in it. :D

How's it today?
