As I look outside my window:
Repeat of last week: I see it snowing. The roads have been cleared, so the kiddos are off at school, and hubs at work. I’m going to go meet him for lunch and pick up a few last minute gifts, like a new planner for me!** But it looks really cold from where I sit.
**see prayer requests for an update on lunch plans
Right now I am:
Burning through a box of tissues. My daughter and I both have a cold, her’s is worse, she lost her voice yesterday. I would have kept her home, but she is behind in a few classes, and she had no fever, so off she went.
Thinking and pondering:
About Christmas. My in-laws like to shower the kids with tons of gifts, and my side does one or two at most. I’m really talking to my littlest one about quality not quantity, and that love is not in a box, it’s in our lives.
AND about my little car, see prayer requests…
On my bedside table:
My Bible. A book about Depression. A novel by David Balducci – i like political thrillers.
On my tv:
Lots of Christmas cartoons.
Playing on the radio:
No music playing, enjoying the quiet.
On the menu for this week:
Monday –Pasta night ( I keep this night constant weekly so I have little stress at the start of the week)
Tuesday – Pork chops and mashed potatoes.
Wednesday – Busy day for us, so fajitas and nacho chips.
Friday – Chicken and roasted potatoes
Saturday – Some kind of soup in the crock pot
Sunday – ???
On my to do list:
Laundry as always
Get my Christmas cards to the Post office (If you’d like to recieve one, email me your address at email@example.com, I love sending cards)Library
What I am creating:
Craft packs for the kids table for the Church dinner on the 22nd.
My simple pleasure:
Hot cocoa with whipped cream floating on top.
Lesson learned the past week:
I am just getting by. I was brought to my knees by my daughters mid-term grades. I have not been super-mom, on top-of-her 24/7 this nine weeks, and it shows. I want her to begin to gain a sense of responsibility and urgency, but not at the expense of her GPA.
Looking around the house:
I have a few gifts under the tree. A few that need wrapped while little eyes are at school. And a grocery list as long as my forearm, come on payday!
From the camera”nothing”
MY CAR! It won’t start today, I think it is the battery, and I already needed two new tires out of this paycheck. I am sick with worry that one of my kids will need picked up at school today and I have no way to get there. I am worried that I won’t be able to travel to see my family over the holiday. LORD, please, touch my little van and let it run.
Adding a dear friend who is struggling to find peace and joy in this season. Continuing to lift up my in-law’s health concerns, my father-in-law is scheduled to have surgery at the end of the week, my hubs plans on traveling down there. Concerned about my father’s wife, she has a chronic condition that is worsening, and he is watching another wife slowly decline in front of his eyes.
