As with the best of intentions it seems like something always gets in the way. At the beginning of week three we were ALL sick. Husband's ick only lasted for about a day. The girls have been on and off all week and seem to be on the up and up. Miss A has a funky nose but that's about it. I am a bit better but am still in the thick of it... go figure. But again, we press on. We rest more than usual but that's okay. I still get the itch to do this or that. I push through.
Shock of all shocks... I enjoy making the bed every morning. It makes me feel like I am hitting the ground running and it influences my thoughts on the rest of the day.
I have been getting a shower almost every day - about six out of seven. Depends on what is going on, etc.
I am reading my bible almost every day - some more than others. I just finished reading Amos in the OT and will move on to Obadiah. I am reading Hebrews in the NT (heavy stuff for the morning!) and then I usually flip back to the Psalms to finish it all up. I may find an actual plan to follow and maybe a study to work through to help focus what I am reading. This has helped my patience with the girls. Although, one day I found myself snapping at Miss L right off one morning and had to apologize to her and get myself straight.
Laundry is great with a a load or two each day depending on what day it is and what I am washing. Husband commented to me after telling him that I would be doing "whites" the next day, "Well, I am not running low on those right now." I told him, "I hope you don't, that's the point." It would seem like I would let things get too low. It's nice that every thing is clean when we need it. I even have it all put away. Little people clothes are still my greatest challenge in putting clothes away.
Dishes. It's like a game. I set a timer and crank it out. I don't always beat the timer but it's fun to try sometimes. I like that I am not overwhelmed by dishes at night or in the morning. Just. Get. It. Done. YAY!
I am thinking about what to add for next month. I have a couple of ideas but need to think on it more. You might think I was nesting with all the organizing I have been doing of different areas. I was never like this when I was pregnant. Ever.
