blushing Good question!!

Hi Renee!
I really, honestly dont remember how you receive the digested e-mails... I heard lots of people here on the boards saying that they get it digested, and also, when I subscribed to the group 2 months ago, I did remember it was given to me the choice to receive them the ordinary way, or the digested way. I regirtered through the yahoo link - dont know if that is your case...
Guess you have to try to get there through all the ways you can think of... just try to find out, I'm sorry if I cant be of any help... I dont tend to get overwhelmed by the emails, I kinda like the flywash system . Still I'm always misbehaving, and I'm not very pleased with myself ... maybe when I stop feeling guilty, I'll get it! :p
I do like the FLY - finaly loving yourself notion, thoug !

See you here!

Fatima

Pinkie Winky i there flybabies!

Going through to the "are you a flylady flybaby" thread I just had this idea: why dont we get together here on the boards to share our problems and our acomplishments as flybabies? I can tell you I do need to, cause this is beeing quite hard on me to let go of some of my old habits ( I'll let you know wich ones later, If your interested on knowing...lol ), and there is a SHE's rebel in me who insists on making it hard on me to get over my chaos. I do need some help and support from all of you flybabies out there! .
Lets make a journal out here! And ( I hope the flylady will understand ) a little whining is permited here - but only a tinsy winsy little bit, ok??:p

Hope I can count on you so we can help each other on this journey against chaos!

Fatima

yes, but it has only been a week. But boy does my sink shine!!!!!

So far the hardest part for me is the wearing my shoes......we are talking 40 years old and have maybe worn shoes about 5 years, lol, I hate shoes, live in flip flops or barefooted. But I'm trying.

Lightbulb Digested Mail

The instructions for your type of mail reciept is on her website homepage. As for getting use to the shoes, try wearing buckle up sandles or something a little more confining that the flip flops to start with then you can gradually move on to the tennis shoes.

If You're Serious!

If you are serious about having an Organizing Journal you can get one here. Please try to make a commitment if you wish to do this. Inactive journals will be deleted after one month, and you'll only get one warning. So, if you plan to take a vacation, post in your journal before you leave!

I look forward to cheering all of you on as you get organized!

wondering...

Hi Renee!
So soory to ear you unsubscribed! Why did you? I'm having some difficulties on getting started myself - god, I'm lousy on taking orders!!! Even when I know thats for the best as I do... I do know that IF - and that is a big if...- I do it as the Flylady says,I'll get it done FOR SURE :p . And even so, I dont get to it as I should. I give you an example : just started uncluttering, and litterally throwing away stuff I havent touched in ages , and I do feel more at ease in the room where I start doing it. Maybe now I'm more ripe (like the fruit...lol), and I'll be able to get in the spirit of it... I lay my clothes at night, and unload the dishwasher asa I get to the kitchen...and that is all for the moment ! But I'm working on it! Sometimes I really get mad at myself ,! Bah, I CAN be my worse enemy ...

Stay well!

Fatima

PS. If you are willing to talk about it, I'd love to ear the reasons you unsubscribed. Got me curious, see? Hugs!
