HMJ- A Week of Planning and Scheming

  • In my life this week…

This week has been spent trying to get everything ready for me to get back to school. I am taking online classes so there are no schedule conflicts. I had to call and get payment information taken care of, update my class schedule, and make sure all my paper work has been taken care of. I’m not going to be able to take all the classes I would like because I don’t want to get loans and I have to make sure I can pay for everything, but I will slowly chip away at what I have left for my degree.

I have also been working on my planners this week. The first chapter of “The Total Woman” is about making schedules for everything you want to do in the day and I am trying to follow this advice.

  • In our homeschool this week…

We still have two more weeks to go before we get back to school (maybe one week if I can get completely organized). Danger Girl has been reading more and more though and I am excited to see this. She has also been working on her writing skills. When she sees me working on my book she likes to make her own books as well.

She has also been practicing with her new sewing machine that my mother-in-law gave her. That is something we can learn how to do together because I don’t know how to sew but I want to learn.

  • I am inspired by…

My daughter has such a giving heart. She is always writing notes to people or drawing pictures for them. She also loves to give gifts. Wednesday some girls came by our home asking for donations to help one of their church members who is battling with cancer. My husband and I were both cashless at the time, but Danger Girl went to her bank and pulled out some of the money she is saving for an MP3 player to give to them. I was a very proud mommy at that moment to see how willingly she did that.

  • My favorite thing this week was…

I was very excited to get everything finalized for school. There was a brief moment earlier in the week when I was afraid I would not be able to start this coming semester, but it worked out and I am happy about that.

  • What’s working/not working for us…

I keep saying that Danger Girl will wait to get back to school in two more weeks, but we may have to start sooner than that. I think she is ready to get back to the routine, so I may actually get her started back up next week, if I can have everything ready to go by then.

  • Questions/thoughts I have…

A couple of weeks ago I posted a question about getting children to do their chores. I have since learned that if a chore is not one of Danger Girl’s set chores she is all too ready to do that. It just seems to be cleaning her room she doesn’t want to do. I don’t understand that, how is helping me clean the bathroom better than cleaning her room? (her choice to help, I didn’t make her). Children are a mystery sometimes.

  • Things I’m working on…

I am still working on my book. I am a little less than halfway done with my editing, and then it will be time to have it read and edited by someone who hasn’t been staring at the thing for a year.

I have found a couple volunteers for the American Heritage Girls troop I am trying to start. I need to get a couple more people to volunteer so I can start all the paperwork.

  • I’m reading…

I am continuing to read “The Total Woman” by Marabel Morgan and “School Education”. I put “How to Pray” on the backburner for now.

I did finish reading “The Coming Revolution” and if you would like to see my review for this you can find it under the books tab. I am now waiting for my next book for review to come in the mail.

  • I’m praying for…

We have a very big family decision to make, so I am praying for guidance on how to proceed. I cannot really give details about this for now, but I will be praying that we can come up with the funds if this decision is right for us.

I thougt I would share another music video because I love music and this song is very inspiring.

Jem- It’s Amazing
