I can’t believe how quickly this week has gone by and how much is still left to get done this week. Tomorrow we’re headed to the Bamberg house, and Del plans on doing the yard work and cleaning the outside of the house. I just hope that his back allows him to do all that he plans on doing. He just wants me there as company for him.
I took my second diabetes test today, and according to the lab person everything looked good. I was pretty confident it would since I’ve never dealt with that before. I just messed up and ate something high in sugar right before taking the last test.
I still have to get my homework done, but I have yet to get myself motivated to get it done. I hope to accomplish at least half of it by the end of the night tonight. It’s not due until Sunday night, but I was going to do everything in my power to avoid delaying again this semester. However, this week has literally gotten wings and made me fly through it.
I signed up to do book reviews, so I’ll be doing posts about some books that I’m reading. If your a reader like I am you’ll appreciate them. 🙂 I read self-help books, romances, and I love to read inspirational type books as well. Currently I’m reading The EveryGirl’s Guide to Life by Maria Menounos. It is pretty interesting and she shares some reasonable tips. 🙂 Of course, some of it is just old school knowledge, that we should practice anyways. However, some people haven’t been taught the old school ways. (I must admit I’ve let myself get away from the way I was brought up, and become a major procrastinator and/or lazy at times.) I am determined to break those two major bad habits that I’ve picked up. I do believe they will only enhance my life if I can those bad habits!! I know I was always one step ahead of everyone else when I didn’t fall into the lazy/procrastinator mode. I also felt like I accomplished something everyday when I laid my head down, and I could list off many more things than everyone else. Unfortunately though, I know that this MOTHER/WIFE’s job feels like it’s NEVER ending. I can no sooner get all the laundry done and there’s three more loads staring me in the face. Or it’s time to cook/clean up for the next meal. Not to mention, now it’s the time of year where there’s lots of running around that has be done. However, I signed up for this role, and I do love being a wife and a mother more than anything. God has blessed me with in-laws that do get our kids at least one night and half a day for me to get caught up on everything for the week. 🙂 Plus I do have a husband that TRIES to help and definitely makes sure there is time for US each week. Plus after 9pm I have MY time until 11pm four nights a week. 🙂 So, I can’t really complain even if I do get off this lazy train I’ve been riding. I’ve been making baby steps and I already feel a major improvement in my mood and seeing the difference in the house makes me feel better.
The verse in the bible that states, Train your kids in the way that they should go, and they will come back to it when they are an adult, it’s more than true. I’m beginning to become a more living proof example of that with each passing day. Even though, it is making me miss my mom more. 🙂
