this list is probably a little bit more for me than you. its kinda therapeutic to get this stuff down on (virtual) paper.
*spend time with my husband EVERY night after the kids go to bed. talk about the day, the kids, and the days ahead.
*nmbk j kj (that would be silas getting on my computer. again.)
*plan homeschool work the night before, not the morning of or during. i’m super lazy. i should say, “plan homeschool work on sunday nights”, but i just said i was lazy and i know thats not realistic.
*have a clean kitchen before going to bed
*don’t buy sweets. i can make them or they can be given to me (i got a “cookie of the month” gift this year!).
*be content. with my house, my cooking skills, my stage of life.
*buy less. food, clothes, junk, unneccessary things.
*play more with my kids.
*respond quicker to my kids. less “just a minute”s.
*do more crafts with the kids.
*be a better gift giver. be a better birthday remeberer. be more thoughtful.
*be more tactful. use a filter before talking.
*use kind words.
*learn to enjoy what i do more, and do more of what i enjoy.
*craft more for the home, not just for work.
*blog more. aim for 3-4 times a week.
*learn to be more business minded. ask for help.
*deepen friendships that need to be invested in.
*get more involved in school.
*be more consistent – in discipline, in work hours, in educating, in cleaning, in grocery shopping.
*depend on God. i’ve tried, a lot, and i just can’t do this all by myself.
*get last year’s christmas cards out this month. better late than never, right?
