Today, I officially became a non-business-owning, stay-at-home, homeschooling mom. Monday and Tuesday didn't count 'cause school hadn't started yet and my hubs was at home and he distracted me. Today I am focused. Today I am ready to take on the rest of my life.......... Today I am tired!
My younger son, who is still at home, started High School at Ohio Virtual Academy today. Wow! I'm glad that I don't have to do it. There is going to be a lot of work there. My daughter started 5th grade at OHVA but it is a piece of cake because we have done it for two years already. I had big plans. Get up early, post my list for the day, take on the world... you know, the kind of stuff I plan to do every day.....but my plans went awry. A little too much chaos and a few too many computer glitches.
But anywhoo, here we go.
My Top 5 Plans for My Life
Or at least for the next few months
*1* Get Homeschool Organized
and how do I plan to do this you might ask. I purchased the Old Schoolhouse Planner and I was hoping to spend a lot of time today checking it out and printing out some important organizing pages, setting up a nice note book, you know, that kind of stuff. Well, not so much. But I did download it.
*2* Organize Christmas
that is going to take a whole blog of its own. Check out Frugal Holidays. As soon as I get to it, that is.
*3* "Spring" Clean My House
every mom knows that back to school time is the real time to make resolutions and get your act together. I think that I will have to get back to basics and get my Flylady lists out again.
*4* Deepen My Walk with God
God and I go waaay back. I have been a Christian my entire life. But I have never spent the amount of time in the Word or in prayer that I like. I am only a few days behind in my Bible in a year Chronological Daily Readings but prayer time is always hit or miss. I talk to God during my daily craziness but I want to spend some real time Praising Him and letting Him know how important our relationship is to me.
*5* Lose Weight
three words Lap Band Surgery. I should be scheduling my surgery in October. Hopefully.....maybe....I'm a little scared....but something has to change.
Whaddya think? Lofty goals? Too much.
Maybe, but a goal with out a plan is just a wish.
So, now I am gonna go make a list for tomorrow .... and go to bed early ... and get up on time... and do SOMETHING.
