I am thinking... about greed & how it can consume people; I know someone who is so focused on money & possessions at the moment that it is truly consuming them & destroying them
I am thankful... for my simple life, material stuff can make things so complicated; I am grateful for the life the Lord has given me
In the kitchen... leftover night tonight (a nice break for me!); made a batch of rice milk this morning-used to be Lil J's fave drink, but now he won't touch it! But the almond milk is no longer going well with him, gotta keep working on this...................
I am wearing... blue tank top & denim shorts; I never seem to write these blog posts on day when I actually wear something cute
I am working on... still working on finding a cure for my IC & chronic UTIs, struggling with a UTI currently :(
From the learning rooms..... still just daily Bible study & reading lessons for Lil J; next month I will start some preschool material with him; I'm working on my CEUs as my license is due for renewal this year
I am reading... Her Daughter's Dream by Francine Rivers. I started & finished the first part, A Mother's Hope, in between these blog posts
I am hoping... that my UTI resolves quickly & completely with no IC flares
I am looking forward to... meeting up with a group of homeschooling moms at a local park later this week; I met with them quite a while back & then right after that my stepson moved in with us full time & it was a much bigger adjustment than I had anticipated & I wasn't able to continue meeting up with these ladies. Last week I ran into them (here at my community pool) & we did some catching up & I am now in a position where time-wise I feel I can meet up with them weekly & I had been looking for a group to get Lil J involved in, so it's absolutely perfect
I am learning......... that a child's spirit can be crushed easily; care must be taken in disciplining to do so without crushing
Around the house... I'm slacking so far, but hope to get caught up; on Monday I just wasn't feeling up to it: I didn't work out & didn't clean the house although I did do the laundry & I went to the doctor & got my antibiotics. Today I did clean the bathrooms, but that's all I got done. I still need to dust & clean floors & clean the kitchen...........and weed the garden & hose down outside.........I have a feeling I won't get ALL of that accomplished by the end of the week unfortunately...........but I still gotta do it all again next week
A favorite quote for today... True nobility isn't about being better than anyone else; it's about being better than you used to be.
One of my favorite things... getting lost in a good novel, it's been a long time since I've read a novel, so it's a nice reminder to how much I love it; so much better than any movie out there
A few plans for the rest of the week: trying to get as much housework done as I can, meeting up with other homeschooling moms, taking Lil J to the community pool, taking Lil J to his swim lesson, taking Lil J to the doctor, & church
