As you can see, I have not posted this week. Therefore, this post will be in bullet points. That's all I can produce at this point.
~The kids went back to school on Tuesday.
~We had evening meetings at church Sunday through Tuesday nights called Impact. It was a great way to start off the new year as a church body.
~Have I mentioned how much I love my church? That is another post for another time. Let's just say, I am thankful for where God has us in so many ways and for so many reasons.
~I am suffering once again from sleep deprivation.
~My house is a TOTAL disaster.
~I can't seem to get warm. When I drop off the kids at school in the morning, it is in the 20s. This weekend, it is supposed to be snowy and cold. Not looking forward to that.
~It is hair braiding week. Let's just say I will be exhausted and relieved when Saturday afternoon arrives.
~Some of the things I really like right now:
-Chick-fil-a free breakfasts each week.
-Early bedtimes for the kids.
-Rick having Fridays off.
-Checking items off my to do list.
-Reading through "The Purpose Driven Life" again.
-Getting some projects done over the break.
-Seeing so many people sacrifice and invest in our Beyond Survival's Giving of Life Project.
-Taking a break from Facebook and realizing I might be better off without spending so much time there.
~ Some of my pet peeves these days: (Just to name a few)
-my hair gathered around my neck(This is why I can never be a wearer of scarves)
-going to the bathroom and finding out there is no toilet paper(This problem is not solely at my house. Everywhere I go, I end up being caught off guard without toilet paper.)
-alarm clocks(I just think we would all be better off if we could sleep as long as we need to!)
-my bank asking me to sign up for something new every time I go through the drive-thru. Then, having to explain to them 3 different times that I don't want to sign up, I don't want to make an appt. to speak to a banker, and I don't want them to call me!
-hair on the bar of soap
-clothes sticking up out of a closed drawer
-being asked the same question 10 times.
-shoes and backpacks strewn around the main level(especially since there is a place set up to put them.)
That's enough for now. I do feel a little better just getting it out there. Hopefully, I will have something more productive to share soon!
