Monday Meanderings

Bible Study
Fruit of the Spirit with Beth Moore

Memory Verse
Isaiah 40:28-31 "Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will sour on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint."

Husband Encouragement
* Keep a clean home. We were both talking about how having a clean home makes us feel less stressed. He's going to help more, but I want to try harder on my part too, seeing as you know, it's really my job in the first place!
* Be nice to each other. (this is what Eli said when I asked him what we should do this week for Daddy to show him that we love him)

Train Them Up
* Reinstate 5-minute pickups throughout the day.
* Finish school lessons for letter F. We've been working on it for forever now, and it would give me peace of mind to have it finished already!
* Work on nap time battles.

Must Do
* schedule eye appointment if they're still bothering me tomorrow
* mail out baby announcements
* mail letters that have been ready and waiting for 2 weeks now!
* send baby pic to the hospital
* schedule 6-week appointment
* order book

Personal Goals
* keep track of water intake
* start the 30-Day Shred

play room


Monday - chicken chow mein (didn't get to this last week)
Tuesday - beef taco skillet
Wednesday - florentine manicotti
Thursday - broccoli cheese soup
Friday - homemade pizza
Saturday - chicken alfredo
Sunday - TBD

* play date sometime this week maybe?
* Bible study on Thursday
* Carter's baby shower at the church on Saturday

3 things I'm thankful for today:
1. The last two days I've felt a lot more rested!!
2. Though the snow drifted quite a bit yesterday and last night and Kevin parked his truck in town and had to walk the cold, dark mile this morning, he was able to make it to work.
3. My sweet Hannah. It's been such a joy to watch her grow and change.

Join me with your weekly plans! Have a great week!
