Tuesday Thoughts

Thoughts jostling around in my head lately:

~I need to speak less and say more.

~If my pre-teen years were anything like CJ's have been so far, I owe my parents a HUGE, GINORMOUS apology.

~Perfectionism, may be adorable in me (ahem). In my daughter? Not so much.

~I'm ready for football season.

~Ditto for cooler weather.

~Weekends away are fun, but weekends at home are a gift from God.

~I don't thank my man enough for all he does for us.

~Discipline isn't always painful. It is always good.

~How much longer til the bathroom's finished?

~What needs to stay, and what needs to go (at home and in my heart)?

~Why did I let menu planning slide? It makes life so much easier!

~Am I spending and investing well (time, money, gifts, relationships)?

~Will we survive middle school?

~What does God want from me right now...today?

I'm certainly pre-occupied these days! What's going through your mind?

Double Ditto on teen girls - ha! And I so need to menu plan. It's been on my LIST for months but I swear I will tackle it before the end of the month.

Intriguing thought, that! Speaking less and saying more? Yi yi yi...I've much to learn!

I'm thinking about how to get my house clean without actually doing any of the work. Nothing is coming to me so I guess I should take a brief computer break....

I love these ponderings kinds of lists. Seems like the kind of conversation we might have if we got to sit down over some tea or coffee. And a scone. Yes, definitely a scone too!
