Spinning my Wheels

Hi everyone, I know it have been a while. I have thought about writing on so many occasions and have just never gotten around to it.

Things are going great for the family and me, here in the Midwest. We got our car paid off in October. Now we are trying to save to replace the second one. We know we don't want another car payment.

The kids and I are keeping busy with home schooling. Ian is 5 now and is doing well with his reading, writing and math. Jonaya has been continuing with her studies. She hasn't missed a day of school yet. Breaking up our vacation days has really help with this because we are not getting burned out. We started back in August and do 6 weeks on and 1 week off. With the exception of Christmas and Easter, we take 2 weeks around those holidays. We have 2 more weeks to work and we will be getting another week off.

Besides selling Avon, I am back to doing some contract work again. I was doing it before we moved and the same woman that I was working under was hiring right before Christmas, so I jumped on it. I make just enough to have some money to burn when we go out and I want something. I don't have to feel guilty about spoiling the kids. That is where all of my typing has been going lately. Today, I am well ahead of schedule. I am due at 2 am central Wednesday morning and I will be finishing up today. The quicker that I get done, the quicker I get paid. Then I move on to the next batch of work.

Communication with my husband is going well. We are mostly on the dame page again. Sometime we get to that page two completely different ways, but the end result is all the same.

Right now, I am doing a study of the book of Ephesians. We just got done with the 1st chapter. It is going well. It's a lot to absorb. God, has given us the same blessings that he gave to Jesus!! I am called to be a mom and wife and this is for His purpose. Sometimes, I just don't feel like I am worthy enough. I look forward to digging into the following chapters.

I will come back this week to continue with my thoughts. I have more to say and not enough time to say it. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

  1. Hey Desiree,

    Nice to hear that things are going well with schooling and family life. I like your idea of 6wks on and 1wk off. . .I'm going to seriously think about that!

    Be encouraged. . .when God calls us to something, when He blesses us, it is on purpose! Take care and be blessed!!!
