Today Is the First Day of the Rest of My… oh you get the idea

filed under: Miscellaneous on March 11, 2008

My mind is going a million miles a minute!!  I have so many things I want to say yet when I sit down to actually compose my thoughts…poof!  They have disappeared from existence.  I feel like Patrick from Spongebob Squarepants when they show him drooling and staring off at nothing.  It is a fairly good representation of my current academia levels.

OK…so as you can see my mind wonders bit too!  I decided to get some cleaning done before hubby gets home.  I decided to empty the dishwasher, fill the dishwasher, clean off the counters,(um, well, some of the counters) vacuum the floors, finish putting away the groceries from this morning shopping trip, and pick up the entry.  Well, after I complete all these tasks I look at the clock and only 14 minutes have passed!  What?!?!  I hope no one else is aware of these cleaning time frames.  The expectation levels in my house are going to raise dramatically!  Usually if I have done a few loads of clothes-and put them away– I am felling extremely proud of myself and my household maintenance abilities.  This sudden abundance of efficient-ness I have stumbled upon as got to be addressed!

My girlfriend and I are going to a MOPS ( this Friday and I am SO darn excited!  It will be the first time in 3 years that I have joined a group for me.  The plus side is, they offer childcare, (moppets)and it is a Christian based group and the curriculum and playtime for the children is really structured and fun!  I am an extremely overprotective mom, and have left my children with virtually no one except immediate family.  Even that is limited.  But!  I see the errors of my ways and am trying to change what my children are exposed to!  I pray that this is a positive experience that is also a fulfillment of God’s will in my life.

I am also joining a new Bible study on March 26th and considering starting a new study in my home in April.  This would be my third study and I am feeling confident that this is something that the Lord wants me to do.  Every time I get close to setting a date and a theme (topical vs. Biblical) I encounter spiritual warfare… so if satan wants me to stop, then I know I must trudge on!

Today has been the most beautiful day of the year so far!  The kids and I have been going stir crazy, and it is currently 44* outside!!!  As soon as little Colton wakes up I am getting them dressed up and outdoors!  I am sure I will take a bunch of pics which I plan on sharing.

God bless you dear friends!
