Menu Plan Monday...er..Tuesday

Well, I might be a day late in getting this out there, but at least I am getting it out.  I have had a weekly menu in my head for a few days, but haven't been able to get it in writing.  I HAVE to have it in writing.

Another thing I am working on is sticking more to a task oriented schedule each day.  I make the schedule the night before.  So far, so good.  I give myself a few assignments for the next day, along with blocks of time to do the things I need to do like, reading to boys, spending some quality time with each kid even if it is only 10 minutes.  I also feel like God is telling me to focus on being "PRESENT" in the moment.  If it is a homeschool block of time, I need to be fully in that, and not distracted.  Same goes for lunch.  This seems like a small thing, but since trying to stick to what is assigned for that day, I realize that I am in the habit of being swayed here and there by random thoughts.  Then by the end of the day, I have 5 open projects around the house, and the air is full of confusion and chaos.  God is a God of order, and my family and I definitely function better under order than confusion and chaos.  Who doesn't?

Happy Week!  Enjoy the sunshine and take some time to read with your children.  It will bless you both.
