Anyone want to give me a little peer pressure...

Ok, I have a baby coming in 4ish weeks and summer took it's toll on our household as did the first trimester. So, clearly before Sweeting gets here, I need to get my act together. I already have an index card system I use for chores, but I need something to help me get my act together as far as getting into a good chore schedule.

I read Sidetracked Home Executives that came out 20 years ago and has proven the test of time. The writing is mediocre and I skimmed a lot of the stories and got down to the nitty gritty with the system itself. I like it. It goes with my ADDness and I like the compactness of the index card box.

One of the things that seems to really help with this system is peer pressure ie. misery loves company. So, does anyone want to join me? We can check in on each other once a week? What do you think?

OK, you must be speaking Greek/American here cos don't know what you talking about??? How do you have an index card system for chores?

I remember you blogging before about your index system ( couldn't decide at the time if I was impressed or depressed, certainly have not managed to organise myself well enough to start this system). I am a bit in the dark though as to what's involved with the peer pressure thing. I am interested though. I did "flylady" for a while and did respond well to the peer pressure element of that until I just got sick of the reminders and unsubscribed. Something a bit more personal might work better. Details please!
PS can't believe there are only 4 weeks left. I am all excited!

I would be up for this! Need more details though. I can't believe your due date is 4 weeks away. :-)))))

www.flylady.com - most awesome site ever - got hooked when I had the twins - and we are still humming along.

I need a kick in the pants. I fell off the flylady bandwagon a while ago. I'll try to pick up the book, maybe that's what I need to get me going again.

Hmmm, am interested but found my jaw tightening over the idea of the pressure of reading another book to improve self/life, etc.

How is it going?

I did flylady when my first was born. I thought life was hectic then....well....the reminders ticked me off too so I left it. But the system works dang well.

i would be keen to take a look-see at this book but index cards make me nervous....best you do a post about this book...!
