It's Monday! A new work week. Every week presents hundreds of ways to learn, work, and live for Christ. I am so thankful and blessed to have the opportunity to serve my family this week!
This week my goal is to CLEAN HOUSE. This week is my last full "free week" to get all this craziness in order before the school year begins. We are not officially beginning until the 28th, but our commitments for the school year really begin to pick up next week.
Next week will be entirely devoted to school plans and to cleaning out the school room. That will take the full week, I am sure.
The house suffered quite a bit during the past week as I was sick with a cold and had no energy to do just about anything. Today was my first day getting back on track.
Here are a few other things that I've been up to today.
Dishes - Since I took a month long break of this habit, I'm beginning again. :-)
Laundry - Right now I am doing laundry every single day until it is "done". Once I'm caught up, I'll switch to a weekly laundry day.
