Monday Randomness...

Just a bit of randomness again...

Finally had some nice weather over the weekend...high 50's...washed hubby's car and my SOOO needed it. Boys played outside and it felt so good to feel the sunshine on my face...I've so missed that so very much.

Of course Sunday was the time change...always throughs me off for a few days...was so tired this morning...had a hard time getting motivated.

Being a mom is by far the hardest job in the world and sometimes most unappreciated. Makes me feel for my mom who had 5 of us little heathens. Bless her heart. My oldest turns 10 tomorrow...YIKES!! When did this happen?!?! Anyway Austin I believe is beginning those teenage years early...he's already being mouthy and somewhat disrespectful and I'm just having a hard time with that...bugs me something terrible...I just keep on praying ;-)

If there is one part of my day that I could totally cut out it would be homework time. Tonight I spent 2 1/2 hours getting the boys to do their homework. It took a good half hour just to get them to sit down to start on their homework and then another 45 minutes just to write something. You can tell Spring is right around the corner. ARGH! I just wish there was a way to get through homewark time without a lot of badgering from me and then a lot of resistance from them. I really must be doing something wrong.

Totally forgot about a meeting I had at church tonight...and I'm the secretary! I hate it when I do that.

For Lent I've given up buying scrapbooking supplies again and also doing any kind of scrapbooking...which has been a bit hard for me...I go into my craft area (which is in my laundry room, so can't avoid that for 6 weeks right??) and just stare. Then a girl in our youth group gave me a flyer about a scrapbooking crop being held on the 24th of this month in town...yes in our little town...there is never anywhere or anything scrapbook related in our town...I was so tempted...I think God is testing me ;-) but I threw the thing away and I'm not even going to thnk about it...I know I can do this. What have you given up for Lent?

At 10 p.m. this very night 10 years water broke and I was in labor for my oldest how time flies. How did we get here already??

Well I'm whipped and I think I'm going to actually call it an early night. Going to go read my Bible...still doing well with the reading the Bible in a year's been good for me.
