Following the Fly Lady system isn't too hard once you have gone through the baby steps. Then, once you start with shoes, shining your sink and then add a few new steps, and stick to them, wham! There is your routine! Time after time, I have dropped my routines, picked them back up, only to drop them again. Flying is simple sure, but if you have a difficult time following routines, or have something in your life where scheduling your life around a routine is near impossible, like having a baby, As I do, routines sometimes get pushed to the wayside to care for family. With me being pregnant though, I have come to realize that FLYing with Fly Lady makes caring for my family more simplistic! I had definately been living in C.H.A.O.S, but now...there is no more S.T.U.F.F! I am more than able to have people over without feeling like my home is a mess, and their are no more "somethings" that undermine family fun.
If you are having a hard time maintaining the routines like I was initially, K.I.S.S your routine. I'd suggest no more than 3 or 4 steps in your morning, and before bed routines. Simplifying may be just exactly what you need.
Fly Lady has tons of helpful information on routines, I suggest you check her out. That way you can stop living in CHAOS, just as my family and I were.
