Learning to Fly

The moral of today's story, folks, is don't get too big for your britches. I was so pleased with myself last night for cleaning my kitchen and shining my sink as the FlyLady recommends. I had Brendan's lunch packed and his breakfast all laid out and ready to go. His backpack was packed and ready. I was so full of my newfound excitement over being organized that I decided to get my automatic coffeemaker all set up and ready to make my coffee and have it waiting for me when I awoke. I was thinking, Wow, I am off to one excellent start on this efficiency thing! Look at me!

So, where did I go wrong? I know that's what you're asking yourself. Right?

In my being so pleased with myself, I managed to forget to put water in the coffeemaker. So, when I awoke, I got to have the wind taken out of my sails a little. Still, I had a pretty good start to the morning. Because I had most everything done that needed to be done before Brendan gets up for school, I had time for prayer and meditation and to blog a little.

It's going to be a great day!

Even "I" don't remember to prep coffee the night before!

I think the amount accomplished is EXCELLENT!

Great job.

OHHH..the automatic coffee maker is the BOMB! I put that at the top of the priority list..there's nothing better than waking up to the smell of freshly-brewed java!

Excellent job. I am a Fly Lady woman myself and LOVE having things in order. Now granted...I still have trouble with laundry but that's a whole other evil.
Just blogging around the neighborhood and stumbled upon you.
