So in the mornings on my drive to work I've been a bit sad. Also a bit PMS. The two probably go together pretty well. Once I'm at work, though, I forget all about it and enjoy my job. So yesterday I really pondered my situation and gave myself a little talking to. I really need to be working if we are to continue sending the boys to private school. I'm really dedicated to keeping them in this school through 8th grade. I really need this job because it gives us our benefits. I actually LIKE this job. Plus, I am home by 3:45 everyday, I don't have to think about work when I'm home, I have holidays and summers off. They even work out our pay so that we are paid all year round, not just over the school year.
I decided that there was no reason for my malaise. I could still cook and clean and garden and sew. I just needed to be a little more organized and energetic. I gave myself a little list:
- mow the grass
- clean up the papers floating around the house
- pay the bills
- clean the downstairs
- wash the kitchen floor
- dust and sweep the basement room
- organize all that Religious Ed paraphernalia that is a mess
- Take a picture of the mini quilt from upstatelisa
Thanks, Lisa, for the amazing quilt. I just love it and can't wait to get it hung in my sewing room. I love the little zipper pouch she made me as well. I already have it "loaded" and in my purse.
So, I didn't get to the quilting or finish the cleaning but I really was able to accomplish quite a bit even after working all day. I even helped a few children with their homework! I'm feeling better about my situation and thanking God for the situation he has put us in. It is so much good and really so little to fret about. Plus, I have a four day weekend next week!
