I think I have a problem.
Monday, June 09, 2008
Two year ago today I wrote my very first blog post. Wow! I can't believe it's been two years!
I actually stumbled upon this whole blogging-thing when I was searching for information on creating a home management binder. Over the last two years I've blogged about so many different things and have been able to create a journal of the ins and outs of life in our home.
The best part of blogging has been *meeting* and gleaning from some very wonderful people. I have enjoyed reading about your families, your pets, your hopes and dreams, your favorite recipes, your ups and downs, and the lessons you have learned in your walks with the Lord. Many of you take the time to leave comments and share your thoughts, and I really appreciate that.
I look forward to sharing with you and learning more from you all in the days ahead. ;)

My to-do list is getting longer, but I'm working on it. There are several bags of outgrown children's clothes and shoes ready to take to the thrift store, and I remembered to call the vet and arrange to pick up pet records. The little details aren't hard, but there are a lot of them. :)
The buyer of our house will be here later today. He's bringing a home inspector along with him. Although we do not foresee any problems with the inspection, it's no fun having people go over your house with a fine tooth comb. We're praying everything will go smoothly.
The inspection is scheduled to take between 2 and 3 hours. I was planning on taking the kids to the park so we wouldn't be under foot, but with temperatures forecasted to be in the mid-90's I don't think that is going to work. We may just stay home and intimidate the inspector. ;)
"Be anxious for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:6 KJV)

Outside my window...the earlier overcast sky is now filled with sunshine.
I am thinking...about the devotional I need to finish up for tonight's ladies' fellowship at church.
I am thankful for...a signed sales contract on our house! You can read the details here.
From the kitchen...grilled chicken breast on a bed of baby greens topped with fresh tomato wedges and a vinaigrette dressing--the perfect lunch for a hot day. Later I will bake a pear crisp and a taco casserole.
I am wearing...an orange shirt, brown skirt, and brown sandals.
I am creating...lists--lots of lists! In addition to using the Motivated Mom's Planner (over in the right sidebar) to help me guide our household chores, I also make lists for the all the little extras that come up each day.
I am going...to work on school paperwork this afternoon. The monthly attendance forms for May need to be mailed, and graded papers needed to be added to the kids' portfolios.
I am reading...My Heart Remembers by Kim Vogel Sawyer.
I am hoping...to pack at least one box each day this week.
I am hearing...the waterfall in the Koi pond. It is such a relaxing sound!
Around the house...two loads of laundry have been done, the main rooms have been tidied, and the plants have been watered.
One of my favorite things...comfy pajamas.
A few plans for the rest of the week...homeschool, library, piano lessons, and packing. I also need to inventory the pantry and freezer and plan meals around what we have on hand.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing...
Thank you for reading about my day! You can read more Daybook posts by visiting The Simple Woman.
