Why is it that everytime “K” has an assignment at school it seems like she waits until the last minute. At what age do they actually take responsibility and do it themselves?? She has her monthly book report due on Monday and I have bugged her about it for two weeks now. Looks like we will be working on it tomorrow. I want her to understand how important it is in life to do things in advance so you are not stressed out at the last minute. I learned the hard way but it has taught me to be early for everything, including meetings & church. I want my kids to learn these same values. She is only in 3rd grade but I don’t want to hold her hand the rest of her life.
Tonight we babysat for some friends so they could go on a date. My friend “R” has babysat for me all week for my appointments, etc. It was the least we could do. I don’t mind at all. Her kids are really easy and “A” has someone to run around and play with.
Today I sat and stamped a lot! I am working on making sets of cards for my friends here & some church members. I think I am making around 50 sets of 6 cards this year. I think I am almost done, believe it or not. It’s around 300 cards with matching envelopes that I end up making but I just love to stamp so much that I enjoy doing it. Plus, I just love how they love receiving them. I don’t know what I will work on once I am done with this project. I have already finished my Christmas cards and birth announcements. I need to work on some journals for the Young Women, too. I guess I will do that next.
What is it about a clean kitchen that can make or break your mood?? I feel soooo good when I keep my kitchen clean. When it is dirty I just feel yucky inside and it makes me not want to clean it. I just finished doing the dishes and now I just need to wipe the counters. I’m sure this is very dull information but it is something I want to remember about me later. This is sort of like my journal now. Of course, I’ll leave all the juicy stuff to my real journal but everything else will go on here.
