we've gone back to work and school. it's so hard to look at my photos of the bahamas and not wish i was somewhere else....*sigh*...
this past week was spent trying to settle my family into the routine. i also spent the past week creating my classroom, from no-furniture last monday to completed-classroom-with-all-the-trimmings on friday and school-started-for-my-kindergartners on monday this week. whew.
(can i say that again? please? thank you.)
tonight i managed to go to the gym and then go buy groceries. and brownies.
that shows you how tired i am. NO will-power.
but who needs will-power when you have brownies?
besides, i go to the gym so i can eat brownies. don't you?
1. eating cupcake tops 2. reading quotes 3. worshipping on Lord's Day 4. couponing and stockpiling 5. knowing your fifteen-year-old is a good driver 6. fresh new school supplies 7. getting your hair washed at the salon 8. a good haircut with a blowdry and style 9. burning a new candle 10. knowing that tomorrow is NOT the first day of school
i can tell school is lurking around the corner, because i suddenly feel like i can't breathe.
i'm also not able to blog like i want to. but i am still here.
this verse was my daily devotional today.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you..." Jeremiah 29:11-14
it is SOOOO fitting. God is THE BEST stress reliever!
