Why I don't follow Flylady

I promised almost a week ago that I would write out why I will never do flylady. It seems that she and I have one major differing of opinions that I just can't get over. You know how it is, no matter how much you love some people they just have this one *thing* that they see so completely different from you that the two of you just can't seem to get along? Well that would be the way it is for Flylady and me. She is a wonderful person with a great way of keeping your home clean, I would recommend her to anyone. However, I personally will not follow her methods. I may use some of her ideas here and there, but I will never be a full fledged flybaby (her term for those who follow her methods).
So, after all of that, what you may ask, is the big issue that keeps me from being a flybaby?

Are you ready?

I know this will be hard to believe, but it is true...

She expects me to wear shoes. Inside the house! -and not just any shoes either, they have to have shoelaces.

Now, you would have to know me a little better to understand how big of an issue this is for me. I don't like to wear shoes. In the house its bear feet, or in the winter when the temps are cold I use slippers and socks. When I go somewhere I wear sandals or the like. Since I do live in an area that gets snow in the winter I also have a pair of boots that I will wear if the snow is at least an inch or more. *But* the only reason I even own a pair of shoes with laces is because I wanted to start walking more often last year. I only wear them if I am going for a walk, alone and fast. Usually anymore with the neighborhood going downhill those walks are only on the treadmill. Other then that I do not wear them at all.

So there you have it. The reason hwy I will never be a flybaby. I hope you all don't hold it against me. ;)

I don't hold it against you! :) My mom actually did the whole 'Flylady' thing and made it work very well for her. It's just not for me. For some reason I can schedule school work, but not house work. Oh it gets done, but just not in any specific order or appointed time. I liked the quotes you posted for me on my blog. The last one was my favorite. (Can I add you to my 'blogroll' list on my blog?) Blessings, Lynn.

That is so funny! I do not like to wear shoes much either. Though maybe not to your extreme :0) I can do house work just fine in socks! I only lace up for my moring walks with Daniel or an outing that will keep me on my feet and walking. Lynn and I talk about cleaning schedules all the time.. I try, do I try!

Ha Ha ha... That is funny! I dont wear shoes either! I prefer to be the barefoot housewife..Besides I would rather see my fuzzy socks then cover them with shoes! (Makes my shoes last longer too!)

That's Cute. You are so adorable.

I hate wearing shoes indoors and outdoors. I bought a pair of sneakers that are similar to sandals. I wear them and I love them.
