It's a school day and I don't have anywhere to be....
well aside from major errands later today: Grocery store, pick up items for the kids camping trip, pick up parts for his race car, lots of running around today.
Soooo....with the kid at school and the spouse asleep I sat and did my bible reading. I got caught up on the days I'd missed.
I balanced the checkbook and am glad to see we'll still have money left after I pay the bills and get the kids camp stuff paid for! YAY! Hubby got a raise, Thankfully, but it doesn't go into affect until the end of the month, so it's still tight around here. It takes a lot of sacrifice for me to stay home, even with a raise.
The rest of the day is as follows:
Make a meal plan
Go to the grocery store
Go by the school with the camp paperwork
Pick up the kiddo take him to the eye doctor
Run errands with him for camp
Hopefully get to bed early since tomorrow is race day! :)
Thankfulness Day 3:
1) I'm thankful for hubbys raise, he hasn't had a raise in 5 years. Yet we've incurred more and more bills. Thankful that we will be closer to paying a few things off now.
2) I'm thankful for this time today to rest, to take in the Word, to drink my coffee in the quiet of the day.
3) I'm thankful that good nutrition is available to me. Although we are a one income family I'm able to make nutrition a financial priority.
4) Although we differ in our "lifestyle" (if you will) when it comes to health, I am very thankful that my husband supports me in my healthy ambitions. He doesn't bat an eye at $100 shoes! Or care that I'm getting up at 6AM to drive to Dallas in the dark to my first race of the year!
Well, he cares for my safety and such, but he's happy for me to participate! :)
It's after 10, I better get this day started!
Happy Friday Sparkers!! What are you doing today to get closer to your goals? Will you be active this weekend?
