Maybe I’m going about this the wrong way?

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

Yesterday, I was looking around my home. I saw clutter, dirty dishes, cat hair, stuff everywhere, laundry piled high. That’s not like me. Me is clean, polished, organized, decorated, non-dusty. A random thought ran through my head, “It’s so much work trying to keep life normal.” It is. I can’t do all the things I […]

School stuff

Monday, September 24th, 2007

This term’s composer is Rimsky-Korsakov. James and I have been listening to Scheherazade. To study a composer, we may look him up in my composers book, see when he lived, add his picture to our Book of Centuries and just listen to the music. We study one composer per term so this is not difficult. […]

I was trying to not be too excited

Works of God weekend

  I had quite a few blessings this week.   1. Busier days at the store. Praise God! I was beginning to wonder what was up. I’m not caught up yet, but busier days help immensely.   2. My father in law mowed my grass. My lawn mower doesn’t work. Someone told me they’d mow […]

I saw this article at Crystal’s blog. It’s so worth your time. Especially if you’re a tired mom today.

What not to say

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

Have you ever watched “What not to wear?” It’s a funny show, although I’d be mortified to be nominated. They laugh and tease people showing them how absurd their clothing is, but in the end it was all for their good and they come out looking like a million bucks. I think we need a […]

Zipping my lips (and fingers)

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

My  husband sent a letter to someone that we love dearly. In it he was expressing frustration with some hard situations we’ve been facing. I told him that I wished he had not done that. Sometimes, he doesn’t state things in the most kind way. Or he says things harsher than he really means them. […]
