Boys Fighting
Company in four days
Bible Study
Boys need attention
Company in three and a half days
Oy! Disorganization
Boys driving me crazy
Company in two and one quarter days . . .

Hanging in there.

He restores my soul

a friend's birthday cake, lots of wine, snacking on crackers, and sitting and scrapbooking all day are not good for my waistline, but are great for my disposition. i praise you, Lord, for these moments of fun.

in Christ alone my hope is found

here i am wanting. again. wanting the impossible. wanting my dad to call up the boys and ask them about their roller hockey game tomorrow. wanting his advice on adding a shower to the downstairs bathroom. wanting to show him the great deal on a shed we got off from craigslist. wanting moments that will make me 'happy'.

happiness is not found in moments or 'things'. it is found in God. i know this. i do.

how come it is so hard for my head to wrap around then?

looking forward, looking back

i don't know why but i am obsessed with posts on new year's resolutions this year. check out this one:


When I was a teacher a PIP was a professional improvement plan, I was never assigned one of those. For now, my PIPs are going to be my personal improvement projects, the things I'm going to work on this year. This list is just the beginning, I'm sure I will be adding to or changing it as time goes on.

1. House
I want to create a routine for cleaning and organizing my home and keeping it that way.

2. Time
I want to gain better control of the clock and calendar.

3. Money
I want to stay on budget, reduce debt, save more, use coupons effectively, be frugal and spend wisely.

4. Family
I want to spend personal time with each kid and help them learn to be responsible around house. I want to spend adult time with my husband.

5. Food
I want to meal plan every week, try new recipes each month, get the kids helping me prepare the meals and eat better by reducing the amount of packaged food and preservatives.

elbow deep in the business of life

today my plans were waylaid. sometimes i guess that is how it goes. one son has influenza a and the other one has influenza b. so nice that they could both come visit at the same time. :)
