Wow! Has it really been 2 years?!

It's been quite a long time since I've last posted. A whole 2 years! I guess I got too wrapped up in facebook to bother posting on here anymore. Well, now I'm on a facebook break and here I am again, lol. I am really enjoying my break. I am getting so much stuff done that I usually put off due to spending time on facebook. I am actually realizing that I am less bored without facebook than I was with it. If I find myself bored, I just think of a task I need to get done and get to it! I can't believe how much I have accomplished in just a week! Here's a list of all the things I've put off due to facebook and have now gotten done:

Planted flowers out front.
Planted a garden out back.
Did lots of yard work.
Cleaned out the Van and washed both vehicles.
Organized kitchen cabinet that I store junk in.
Cleaned out kitchen pantry.
Switched winter clothes out of the girls room for summer clothes.
Designed church bulletin board for VBS (still have to assemble it and put together though...but it's on my to-do list!)
Crocheted a teddy bear for my newest little nephew.
And I am sure there is much more that I am forgetting.

Sometimes I miss being on facebook, because I miss seeing what's up with everyone, but at the same time I am really enjoying being away. I will really have to practice self discipline and self control when I allow myself back on. It's one of the fruit of the spirits, so I better learn how to use it! I'm afraid that I've been so busy catching up on other stuff, that I haven't allowed myself more time to focus more time on God and that should be my first priority. So I am going to try better to focus more on Him this coming week. I am going to try to get more organized with my time so I can make check lists and stick to them. I even downloaded a check list app for my phone! I am on it now!! Here's my to-do list for this week:

  • Vacuum out the Van
  • Clean bedroom closest.
  • Get rid of all old 2005-2009 bills, by burning them out in the fire pit (way too much to shred).
  • Steam clean living room carpet.
  • Mow the lawn.
  • Organized dining room and living room closets.
  • Mop kitchen and dining room floors.
  • Make Dr. Appt. for Ben's ear (it's been plugged and I've had them irrigated and they still couldn't get it out and I really feel it's affecting his speech).
  • Make Dentist Appt. for Ricky.
  • Make Physical Appts. for Mark and I.
So that's all I have on my list so far. I am sure there will be more added as the week goes by. I would also love to get back to doing Bible studies with the kids and reading to them every night before bed. I was reading this series to them a few months back and just stopped, so I hope to finish it this time: http://www.dunlopministries.com/free-e-books/Book%201%20Jed%20Cartwright%20and%20the%20Midnight%20Escape2.pdf
The kids really enjoyed the book.

Next week Markie and Ricky go to Kids Camp, so I am trying to plan some fun things for the little ones since I know Ben will not be happy when he realizes they are going to Kids Camp and he isn't. I'd like to take the little ones Strawberry picking and seeing if a friend would like to meet there and let the kids play while we make stuff from the strawberries. And hopefully we'll get some real hot days so that I can take them to the beach. Heman's Family Camp is coming up so I would like to prepare for that ahead of time by making a lot of the meals at home. I found some interesting camping meals that look like fun to try out. I can't wait!

I hope everyone else is enjoying the beginnings of their summer and has a safe and Happy Father's day this coming weekend! Sorry if this posting seems to jump all over the place. I have lots of extra thinking time these days and my mind just runs from one thing to the next! Ha! Well, take care and God Bless!!
