Monday Meanderings

I really want to make a little graphic for this meme. Maybe someday... =)

Bible Study - Mission of Motherhood

Memory Verse - TBD

Husband Encouragement
* try to have a more organized meal time - prepare meals in afternoon if possible, wash dishes so my counters are clean and remove any kitchen clutter

Train Them Up
* Carter - I'm starting some real sleep training this week! Carter's been waking up at least a couple times in the night, starting as early as 1:30am after he just went to bed around 10:30. I've been feeling reeaally tired lately, like newborn phase again, and I know Carter really doesn't need to eat in the night anymore because he's big enough now.
* Hannah and Eli - working on first-time obedience with a happy heart
* Eli's actually getting pretty good at reading an analog clock if it's on the hour. So I want to put batteries in his bedroom clock and tell him he has to stay in his room reading books or whatever until 7:00am since he's my early riser, especially these days with the sun rising earlier.

Personal Goals
*ahh, the house was much better last week! still trying to get caught up on laundry and get everything put away, but with the kids playing outside (not today though cuz it's rainy) I have a lot more time to do it.
* work on spring cleaning list

* resend one of Moppet questionnaires because I wrote the address wrong on it
* start thinking about upcoming birthdays

Zone - living room hutch

Menu Plan - I feel like trying some new recipes this week!

M- kielbasa, cheddar spirals, cauliflower
T - grilled Italian chicken, grilled potatoes, fruit salad
W - slow cooker pork chops, cooked carrots
Th - best-ever meat loaf, mashed potatoes, baked apples
F - brats, grilled ranch veggies
S - tacos
Su - leftovers

* Kevin's day off today
* zoo with family on Saturday

3 Things I'm Thankful for Today:
1. A great weekend home this past weekend and actually having time to catch up with old friends. It was so so good!
