We have a busy house 4 kids plus 3 that I am looking after!! Well, it keeps me young!! The kids have had breakfast, made puppets and drawn pictures and it is only 10:30!!

We are getting ready to head outside to play right now, before the rain comes that they are calling for. This weekend I figured out our budget. We broke our income down into percentages, I may have written about this before, but I was so excited that it actually worked!! We have enough for our mortgage, tithe, spending, other bills, and paying off our overdraft!!

I have also been keeping track of my calories I have been eating. I am floored byt the numbers. I have stayed in my limit, but have made horrible choices about where they are coming from. I am going to make this week the trial week. I am looking to see what I need to change. A few of us are getting together tonight, possible, to do a trial run of a community kitchen type thing. We will all go home with 2 dinners, frozen fruit and a salad. Just small to start and then we can work our way up from there. I am hoping that it will help me to eat healthier, since I won't have to do as much planning during the week!

Gonna run now and get our outside time. Maybe I will be back later on tonight...


  1. it always feels good to be pro-active in ones life
