What a Day

My day started out very well. I have been able to get more on a schedule the past two days. Due to this I was able to make Hubby breakfast and pack his lunch...which he enjoyed very much. After my devotions I checked our e-mail and then I heard my "sweetie" coming down the stairs. Her favorite saying right now is..."Awwwwww, Cute." I love to hear her say that. It is so adorable. She will hold her babies and say, "Aww Cute." I just can't get over it. We all love to hear her say it. After that she went and woke "bubby" up. I then heated up their breakfast.

Well after all that it seems as though the children grew horns. ;) Not really, but I couldn't believe it. Next thing I know..DS has dumped 1/4 of the powdered laundry detergent on the floor (neither one has ever bothered it since we moved here in January), he got into the refrigerator, and then the freezer and pulled all sorts of items out. It seemed that everywhere I walked I found something that they had gotten into. I DC (direct connected) Hubby because I needed a sane person to talk to. WEll...after talking for a while we decided that this was a spiritual attack. I haven't had devotions on a consistent basis since we moved here, but I have been for the past few days. It seems that Satan is trying to deter me from keeping up with my time with the Lord. I just need to remember that and that I need to lean on the Lord during these times. I pray that the Lord gives me strength to deal with my children in the right manner today and I know he will.

One reason I am able to have my devotions and make breakfast more consistently is that I worked on my Management Binder for the home yesterday. I was able to complete my schedule (although it will probably be altered over the months), my cleaning routine, and my calendar. I wish I had a digital camera and then I could take pictures of it, but it will have to wait. I also made sure that I had a pouch in the front with a pencil, notecards, pen, and scissors. I will have to add a menu section and a section for...well..not sure yet, but I know there will be more. My schedule is very detailed but I find that if it isn't detailed...I get sidetracked. If I don't follow the schedule exactly for the day..that is okay. Well..I smell the bacon..I need to get back to watching it. I am in the process of cooking 10 lbs of bacon for our canning day tomorrow. After I clean up from the bacon I need to chop the carrots and celery. That way we are ahead a little bit for tomorrow's big day! May all have a God-filled Day!

Melanie, if you are ever over this way, stop by with your binder. We can take pictures with my camera and I will email them to you.
