Goals for 6.22.12 (Madison's first birthday)
-Have 15 meals that work for our family- We're at five. That's two more than we had last month. Last month we had ten months to add twelve meals. We added two in a month, so we're ahead of schedule!! Yay for me.
-Throw a birthday party for Madison at our house
-Get dressed every day(you just think I'm exaggerating)- Moving on...
-Look in the mirror EVERY time I leave the house and/or have company. (I figure if I'm gonna submit everyone else to the view, I ought to at least get a taste myself)- This one made me laugh out loud. Here's a shot of the only mirror in our house. It has been here for two weeks. I could pass myself on the street and never know it. You know, if I could be in two places at once.
|Sad side note: this picture was taken two weeks ago. Half of that laundry is still on the bed. The other half only moved off of the bed because we used it!|
-DIY something fun to give friends & fam for Christmas...Being cheap shouldn't equal being a scrooge!- We actually are kind of excited about this one, but since friends & family (are the only ones who) read this mamma-jamma, I can't share anything with you until after the fact. Sorry!
-Find a way to serve God while being a good wife and mother. Whoa, I don't know if I've ever called myself a "mother" before. Crazy! - My plan of attack on this one was to work on the "while being a good wife and mother" before adding in the serving God part. Lately I've been thinking I should rethink my strategy; I'll probably fail at being a good wife and mother anytime I put that ahead of God's will for me. Hmmm.
-Be a good friend. Answer the phone. Maybe even initiate conversations, sometimes! Listen. Help.- Ouch. Some of you know how badly I'm doing with this one. You know who you are. Thank you for putting up with me!
-To live by Philippians 4:8-"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things."- I think I've done pretty well on this, only because Madison is #1 on my mind most of the time. And she is pure, lovely, and excellent, if I do say so myself. She also most definitely makes me think about how worthy of praise our God is.
Tell me what you think! Are you working on any goals right now? Have you ever gone two weeks without looking at yourself in a mirror (other than the one on the car visor)? Do you feel like giving me some baking lessons? For free? Does your folded laundry ever hang out for weeks just because you hate that final step of putting it where it belongs? What words (other than the ones that require asterisks to spell) are off limits for your kids?
