And we're off. I spent last night at our first ever Cure Meetup in San Francisco, talking with a room full of people who were all setting out on this Cure. It was invigorating in a totally new way, and I think that we should all be doing it at least once a Cure. One of the things that came up was how overwhelming working on your home can me and how guilt and defeat easily creeps in. To aid this, I wanted to remind everyone of a tip that came from a Cure-ee last time: make a list not only of those things you "need" to do, but also of those things you have done. Even the small things. If you want to try this, put your list of SUCCESSES in your comments below. It will help us all to see what is getting done.

Who's On Board:

Holy Cow, T-Man is going to need help. All hands on deck!

I know that there are a few more of you. I promise I'll catch up next week.

Best, Maxwell

This Week's Assignment: Get your hands on a copy of the book and read through page 69. This gives you all the ground work and gets you started with the interview and short quiz on the health of your home.

The Cure posts will go up twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays, allowing for plenty of comment space. We will be pulling comments and pics to the front page post each week and everyone is urged to take pics and post them to this great Flickr pool or simply tag them with "apartmenttherapycure." See our old pics here too.

The Fall Cure is live in all four of our Home city sites:
Chicago & their Flickr group
San Francisco & their Flickr group
Los Angeles & their Flickr Group
New York & our Flickr group
Green Home & their Flickr Group
We're taking this week to get ready and next Monday we'll all start. Please choose the site nearest your home to join, but feel free to browse on all!
