Monday Meanderings - May 16

Bible Study... Genesis 38 (moving right along)

Memory Verse... 1 Peter 3:3-4
"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight."

Husband Encouragement...
♥Don't get stressed and be flexible about vacation packing and plans.
♥ Tell him if I need him to help with something.
♥ Ask how I can help him.

Train Them Up...
* I have tons of car games for them--excited for some quality time with them along the drive. (no chores or ANYTHING also needing my attention)

Personal Goals...
* Bring a short workout video in case there's opportunity for a quick workout.  
* Run on the beach? 
* Bring healthy snacks for the car
* Seek out the healthy options on restaurant menus.

New Habit of the Month...  {MAY} COMPLETELY clean off couches at end of day.  If it's clothes, I can still sneak into the kids' rooms to put things away, and if it's hanger stuff, I can just lay it on top of their dresser until morning.

MUST Do...
* Pack everything!
* Print driving directions for return trip.
* Get phone numbers for stops.
* Clean stench from fridge. (our Easter eggs had gone bad?  SOMETHING went bad, that's for sure!)
* Get Olivea's photoshoot put on CD.
* Return movie to library.
* Schedule Dr appointment.
* Oil change for car.
* Clean out car
* Get cat food dispenser set up.
* Find extra batteries for trip.
* Wash fold all laundry in prep for packing.
* Find hamper bag for dirty laundry.

Zone(s)... laundry

Menu - Cleaning out before trip.

* We are leaving Wednesday for an all-family vacation to Myrtle Beach, SC!  It'll be a bit of a reunion with all of my mom's side of the family, all staying in a big 7-bedroom beach house!  SO EXCITED!  We'll return the following Wednesday.

3 things I'm thankful for today...
1. BEAUTIFUL weather today!  Certainly helps me get motivated to pack and get things ready for our trip!
2. A wonderful report from Eli's teacher today at his parent-teacher conference.  He's done sooo well this year, and they've really enjoyed him as a student.  And I'm so thankful for such a great Christian preschool for him to attend! Excited for Hannah to start next year...
3. Family time again!  We were just having such a good time outside together last night, we didn't care that it was almost 9pm before we finally came in for bedtime!
