~Husband Encouragement: VERY low income lately so we will be having some candlelight dinners and back massages after the kids are asleep (hopefully!)...also, trying to keep my ears open for things he may need or need me to do for him. Make him breakfast in bed on Saturday, tell him one thing every day that I love about him (thanks for the idea, Cyndi!......still thinking on more things that I can do to  be encouraging.....

~Bible Study: the book of Deuteronomy and The Mom Walk by Sally Clarkson...the only things I am reading this week.

~Memory Verse:    "The Lord your God is going ahead of you. He will fight for you, just as you saw Him do in Egypt." Deuteronomy 1:30

~Zone: clothes (HAVE to get this monster tamed....we have clothes everywhere it seems...no kidding. I don't even know how to BEGIN to explain it)

Work on decluttering 1 room a day & make a new cleaning schedule and stick to it

~Must do:
make a budget
Grocery shop
clean out the fridge
clean out the car
declutter one room a day
organize toys again
organize homeschool materials again
declutter homeschool area
Basically, just GET RID OF CLUTTER!!!!! (can you tell it's bugging me a little bit? lol)

~Train them up:

Work on immediate obedience and NO WHINING!!! Ugh. I am about to go insane with all of the whining lately. Also working on picking up after ourselves (again)...and the fruit of the spirit. (I will try to share this with you later).

okay, that is it for this week! Let's see if I can actually accomplish any of it. lol  :)

Have a blessed week,
