Family update

I can't help it! I miss blogging!! So much has changed in less than a year. I finally completed my high school diploma. 10 yrs later, but I did it. I have a full-time job as a daycare teacher. It has really been a blessing to my family.
I can't believe we're almost to 2016!! I'm pretty excited to see what God is going to do.
I know in May, my little sister is graduating college. I'll be going to Texas for that for sure! :)
I wanna try and do at least 3 things I'm grateful for a day here.

There is our Christmas tree. We already did the jingle bus from downtown Milwaukee. We are going to do candy cane lane (lights) tomorrow night. Samuel has his violin concert on Tuesday night. Excited for that! Hopefully I'll remember to blog again! Talk to you guys later!

Back to Blogging

Yep, back at it! Right now I'm just watching 19 Kids and Counting (well now the new little family that premièred tonight after the duggars). Been watching on it and off kind of all day and now it's at the current episode. :)
So glad to have cable again! I missed TLC and HGTV. I re-arranged the master bedroom today. Tried to make it easier with Mark's music equipment all over. Almost done! Just gotta finish picking up and rearranging the book shelf and the top part of our closet to finish moving things around and make due with the space that we have in this 2 bedroom apartment. 
Happy Housewives is starting a book club and is reading Say Goodbye to Survival Mode by Crystal Paine. Just purchased the kindle version of it today and need to read the first chapter by friday. :)
Tomorrow it's suppose to be like -20 degrees! Yuck! At least we're not buried in snow like the east coast is though! Just dealing with the bitter cold weather. Oh well. Mark and Samuel went to the Gym and Samuel wanted to swim in the pool there so that's where they are at. I'm gonna go on Thursday. Well hope you all had a lovely Tuesday!

Friday To-Do's

Boy, I know it's been a while since I last made a blog post, sorry! Life has been changing and getting busy and there's been some adjustments. I need the accountability of what I use to do and writing my to-do's as detailed as possible out. That way I get it done better. I have off of work today, so things I need to get done are

- Two loads of dishes ~ did one
- Mop & Sweep kitchen floor
- Clean out bathroom toilet & sink area ~ Samuel cleaned out the sink area
- Wipe down mirrors
- Read chapter 6 and do workbook for Made To Crave before study tonight at 7pm.
- Put away Samuel's clean clothes are still in the bag
- Exercise for 15 minutes (need to work back up to an hour, it's been months).
- Pick Mom up from work as soon as Mark gets home! ~ apparently from my brother calling a little while ago needing a ride, I don't need to do that anymore, but my brother may need a ride. We'll see who gets home first. Mom or Mark. lol.
