Joy to the World
All three of our little angels sang this last night at the church Christmas party featuring most of the kids in our church. (Some of them opted out). My children actually sang-all three of them. Lilly might have lip-synched a bit but I think she sang some too. Anyway, this is a big accomplishment as I have had non-singers for years. Lilly was a horse and my big girls played angels and they read their parts beautifully. Erika had memorized hers but did not trust herself in front of people. My Mom went with us and it was great. She really enjoyed the kids program and the food. She did not enjoy our goofy games and "cutting up" talent, so I took her back to our house to her vehicle. With every Christmas party, it is not so much fun when it gets to the truly family being goofy time IF you are a visitor. All in all it was a great night and we all had fun.
I told Erik about a banking error I had made and I was so braced for condemnation, I actually felt condemnation where there was none. He wasn't tickled, but it is covered and over. Mountain out of a molehill? That is me. I am glad I told him. My other plan involved not telling him and trying to cover it somehow??? This, of course, was not doable as I don't really have much income and use my Pampered Chef money to cover things like gas and incidental groceries, fun money. Anyway, honesty is the best policy.
My next goal for myself is to limit my computer time. I spend entirely too much time browsing and blogreading. I have a really good timer (Pampered Chef) that can be turned off and on and still keep counting. I thought about setting at an hour or 2 and letting that be all I can do in a day. That way, I will be aware of exactly how much time I spend on there and will get more done in a day or night. What do you guys do? Or am I the only one with this excess problem? My problem has really gotten bad since we got DSL, I really love it. and hate it. I read blogs, look at curriculum, watch you-tube(hubby really likes you-tube!). It is so quick. Now it is time for the new to wear off and me to get some control. Anyway, I am eager to hear your suggestions if you struggle with this.
Have a very productive Thursday!! Tomorrow starts Christmas every night for us!! The beginning of Christmas!! The house is almost kind of clean and I am sort of caught up with laundry-about 2 loads left. YEAH!!
