A Joke I found on Sugardoodle.... I thought it was pretty funny.


Once upon a time there was a non-conforming sparrow who decided not to fly south for the winter. However, soon the weather turned so cold that he reluctantly started to fly south. In a short time ice began to form on his wings and he fell to earth in a barnyard, almost frozen. A cow passed by and pooped on the little sparrow. The sparrow thought it was the end. But, the manure warmed him and defrosted his wings. Warm and happy, able to breathe, he started to sing. Just then a large cat came by and hearing the chirping, investigated the sounds. The cat cleared away the manure, found the chirping bird and promptly ate him.

The moral of the story:

1. Everyone who craps on you is not necessarily your enemy.

2. Everyone who gets you out of the crap, is not necessarily your friend.

3. And, if you are warm and happy in a pile of crap, keep your mouth shut - much like life.

O.k. ..fly lady... I actually do not have the book yet. I should get it and read it. But ther is a link on her website that said getting started or baby steps or something like that. It starts you out. I still do not do it all, but I have my contro journal started and have started the process for about 3 weeks, it has really changed my home so far, I am excited. Just explore her site and sihn up for the e mails. Thats how I started. It's pretty easy.

let me how it is working for you. I have got my kids in on it. This is how it works. each morning they alternate emptying the dishwasher and taking out the trash before shool. After school they put there own folded laundry away, and at dinner we all halp clean it up, start the dishwasher so it can be emptied in the morning. That has made a huge difference for me :)
