Bible Study: I have nothing going on right now for a Bible Study. I need to start reading 2 Corinthians though. I just finished "I Am Hutterite" by Mary-Ann Kirkby (review soon).
Memory Verse: Phil. 2:14 'Do everything without complaining or arguing.' I need to learn this as well as my children. I have a song from VBS many years ago that goes along with it.
Husband Encouragement: I need to keep my mouth shut. For instance, I really hate my hair. Really, really hate it. It's changed since I got pregnant and I don't know what to do with it. It's not curly or straight and it's not pretty when I leave it down. It's frizzy (even with frizz control stuff). So I put it up in a ponytail. Well, my hair doesn't all fit in a pony tail so I have to have a little pouf up top - I'm sick of it. Over my little sister's graduation, my older sister let me use her flat iron - omg it was amazing. Unfortunately, it's also around $200 (not that I could afford a $20 one at this point). The other day I was frustrated with my hair and had a little rant about it. Big A thinks I'm trying to guilt him into buying it for me. I'm not - at least not on purpose. Not that I don't want it but I know I can't have it - there are so many other things that we need that take precedence over my wants. So I need to keep that stuff to myself. And be more thankful for all he does for me because he does a lot!
Train Them Up: Moose - It's potty training week! He's doing good, not complaining about sitting on the potty every half hour (even when I paused Elmo tonight).
Squirt - I need to teach him some signs and how to say mama and dada.
Personal Goals: 1. Get all of my runs in this week. I was under the weather today so I didn't get my run in (which sucked bc Big A was home all day) but I'll make it up.
2. Search around for an affordable seamstress to take in some clothes for me
3. Write a review for "I Am Hutterite"
New Habit of the Month: Be soft spoken. I get angry and raise my voice and yell all too often. Moose has picked up on this so whenever I holler into the other room or just get excited, he thinks I'm mad and starts yelling. Super annoying but I need to start the change.
MUST Do!: 1. Get healthy (I think I ate some bad strawberries)
2. call the doctor to update her on Squirt (feeling better, BMs have blood off and on)
3. Make finite plans for the birthday parties this summer (joint family one and both boys' parties) - themes, decor, food, guests
Menu: ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA.
Monday: tonight we had leftovers
Tuesday: homemade pizza
Wednesday: brats & homemade mac & cheese (or boxed LOL)
Thursday: chicken parmesan (STILL have not had this)
Friday: grilled cheese & soup
Saturday: ideas welcome
Sunday: something in the crockpot
Fun Things: Nothing; we'll be home potty training all week
3 Things I'm Thankful For Today:
1. Moose being such a big boy & sitting all nice on his potty
2. My husband letting me take a huge nap this morning when I wasn't feeling well
3. My husband for mowing the grass (Sarah, I hate it too)
