When you're flying with Flylady, each week you have a different zone of the house to concentrate on. And every day, Kelly (whoever that is) gives you a zone mission. It might be to take an old toothbrush and scrub all your faucets, or clean out a drawer... anyhow, today the zone mission was a surprise.
Today go in to the bathroom, throw back the shower curtain, turn on
the water at a relaxing temperature. Then add some of your favorite
bubble bath or shower gel, set your timer for 15 minutes, take off
all of your clothes and..........GET IN!!!!
Today you are to take a BUBBLE BATH! No cleaning, no decluttering,
just 15 minutes that is only for YOU! If you can schedule this for
thirty minutes you get bonus points!
There is nothing more decadent than a bubble bath for no reason other
than taking care of yourself!!
So this evening, I decided to take her up on it. I set my timer and got in the tub. I generally prefer tub baths to showers anyhow, but I found out fifteen minutes stretches out for quite a while. The water got downright chilly. Nonetheless, I was determined to last fifteen minutes. Bored, I began looking around, and realized the bottom sides of the soap-holders in the shower were thick with soap scum. Yuck! Laying there pondering that, I remembered how the bathtub mat tends to get mildew-y, and lifted up the edge. Double-yuck!!!! I made it the whole fifteen minutes (after adding more hot water) but then I had two jobs to do when I had my jammies on: scrub the bottoms of the soap-dishes, and bleach the bathtub mat. Flylady has ruined me; I've started noticing dirt that I used to be blind to.
