Well, it’s MONDAY! Today is an amazing Monday because I am at home! I slept until 8:30 and I’m recovering perfectly from my procedure on my leg. I actually feel encouraged about this upcoming week. That could possibly be because I’m still in pajama pants…but hey, I’ll take it! 🙂
Things that I’m loving this week are:
1) I have started reading the book Hands Free Mama: A Guide to Putting Down the Phone, Burning the To-Do List, and Letting Go of Perfection to Grasp What Really Matters! In an effort to work toward my goal of creating closer family ties, I am trying to be more present. Someone once told me, “Wherever you are, be there.” This sounded simple but it is an extremely challenging thing for me. It is not my personality to just “be.” I feel that I need to be doing. If I take those ten minutes, I will get behind on the things that I feel that I must accomplish. However, I am very convicted after just the first few chapters and can already see that changing my ways would benefit everyone – including myself!
2) I am also very in love with the local public library’s online overdrive book rental system. This is amazing! With a simple, free library card you can have thousands of titles to browse and download at the click of a button. You can choose to read from your browser or download onto a device. I’m sure that I’m very behind because this is not new technology. However, I am still excited at the benefits that I am seeing for myself. We have found enough titles to keep all of the girls equipped with new material.
