Monday Meanderings - July 5

Sorry guys, because of the holiday this past weekend and then being completely EXHAUSTED yesterday I didn't get this up, even though I had started writing it last week already.   By the way, I changed the setting on my blog so that only part of my posts shows up on Google Readers/RSS feeds, whateveryoucallit.  Then you have to actually go to my blog to read the rest and then maybe you're more likely to leave a comment!  Muahahaha, I'm sneaky like that!  LOL  No, seriously though, I love hearing from you, otherwise I kinda think I have no readers! Okay, so on with the week...

Bible Study - Created to Be His Help Meet

Memory Verse 2 Timothy 4:2
"Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction."

Husband Encouragement
*compliment him more
* stop doing Carter's 10:00pm feed so that I can hopefully get to bed the same time as Kevin
* help more with some of these house projects.  I'm a little more capable than I think I am.
* change out his towel every other day.  he likes that.
* stop being a NAG!  I'm a perfectionist and organizer, he's not--that makes it hard.

Train Them Up
* get offline.  I can be SO DISTRACTED some days.  If there's something I'm focused on throughout the day, it's usually a rotten day with the kids.
* get Eli outside more, I think that would solve a lot of problems. 
* quit Eli's afternoon nap.  And if he does fall asleep, make sure he's up fairly early, otherwise he's ALWAYS awake 'til 10:30/11 at night!

Personal Goals
* re-paint my nails
* order a new swimsuit top (still haven't done this!)

New Habit of the Month - JULY!
* completely clean off the couches every evening. some things (ie books, mail, toys, clothes, etc) just lay there for days on end.  hopefully this new nightly routine will help the living room get cleaned up every day.

* schedule Carter's 6-month checkup (seriously?!)
* bills out
* clean off the computer desktop

Zone - master bedroom


M - 4th of July leftovers
T - taco bowl salad thingys, fruit salad
W - ham steaks
Th - smokies, cheesy potatoes
F & S - I'll be out of town.
Su - frozen dinner

* Eli's starting swimming lessons for the first time this week (M-Th for 2 weeks).  I'm nervous/excited.  It's his first organized anything
* Get to find out the baby gender of my SIL AND my friend Jaesi!
* Getting out town with just Carter this weekend!  Going to my SIL's to help paint three rooms in their house.  I'm looking forward to the little getaway!

3 things I'm thankful for today:
1. watching Eli at swim lessons and chatting with other moms there
2. sunshine today!
3. picnic table that Kevin made for us!

I'm not doing weekly plans over the summer-just enjoying no schedules til school starts in Aug. plus my hubby is out of town for the summer so meals don't have to be planned. But I wanted to let you know that I am still enjoying your Monday Meanderings!

I like the idea of comments too so you know who's been around but I find I don't read blogs as often with that preview thing. I skip over them. I love the convenience of the reader so I don't have to do extra clicking. :o(

Mary - thanks for letting me know about the feeds! I'll give this a try for awhile and see how it goes, I guess.

Wow! How is Carter 6 months old already?!?! I really enjoy your Monday Meanderings. Have a great week and enjoy your weekend getaway!

Kathy said...

You sure are clever! =)

BTW, I LOVE your new blog design and esp the header - did you do that yourself? It looks awesome!

In Light of the Truth... said...

Thanks, Kathy! And yes, I did the header myself. Made my friend Amanda one too while I was at it since she was just starting a blog. You can see it here: http://meandheplus3.blogspot.com/
