I'm a Soccer Mom, Web Designer, and Coffee Drinker just to name a few

I can't believe it is Wednesday?!
I've been busy with life.  Here are a few ways my time has been used lately:
  • Trying to cook more to save money, my goal is for us to only eat out one time a week.  Thank you God for my Crock-pot.
  • We've been re-arranging rooms, the girls got bunk-beds and were moved to Joseph's old room.  Thank you Lord for tax refunds!  Joseph shifted over to the girls old room, so that Brady's crib would fit better and Brady will be closer to our room.  He's slept a couple full nights in there, it's not close enough to my warm bed.  Thank you God for heat, and that spring is near.
  • I re-arranged our bedroom furniture.  I miss Brady sleeping in our room, but it's nice to have a babystuff-free room again.  It's crazy to have a girls room and a boys room now.  Thank you Lord for my children.
  • I have some sewing projects I want to work on, curtains and blankets for the girls new room.  It's wishful thinking everyday.  Where's the time for added to-do's?
  • Feels like I'm making more trips to the grocery every month.  The basic weekly list is: 4 gallons of milk, 2 dozen eggs, 4 loaves of bread, 4 boxes of cereal, and a few pounds of chicken and beef.    I can't stay stocked up. Thank you God for Aldi.
  • I'm a Soccer Mom now!  It's exciting.  Joe and I walked out from taking Joseph to his soccer evaluations and I told Joe, "This is so surreal!"  Seems like we just walked into our house with him bundled in our arms for the very first time.  Now he's eager to go to his first soccer practice, I couldn't be more excited for him.  Bethany will be on a different team and her evaluations are on Saturday.  She is really looking forward to playing soccer too.  It's going to be fun.  Thank you God for healthy children!
  • I've been working on a blog, more like website, into the late hours of the night.  Not my favorite way to spend my time but hopefully is will payoff.  I have a business partner now, well, my sister has a business partner now.  I'm joining forces with her to expand her photography business. When we make it rich I'm paying for a web designer!  More on this to come... Thank you God for my sister.
  • Homeschool curriculum is on my mind.  I thought I knew what I was using next year, but now I'm having second thoughts.  I'm researching online, looking at catalogs, bidding on ebay and I'm still not settled on what would work best for us next year.  Thank you Lord for the freedom to home educate!
  • My husband saves me time every morning by getting the coffee pot ready for me.  All I have to do is stumble to it and flip the switch.  I don't think I've mentioned here but BradyBoy was the final straw for me.  I'm an official coffee drinker now.  You might remember, I'd tried to be one before and never liked regular coffee and couldn't tell any benefit from it.  Not so any more, I'm getting old!  Thank you God for my sweet husband!
  • I've been taking an antibiotic for my sinus infection.  It's a low dose because I'm nursing, however it's causing Brady to spit up, which he's never done on a regular basis.  I also realized yesterday, on day 7, that I had been taking it wrong.  I was supposed to take it every 8 hours and I've been taking it twice a day... Thank you God for the little brain I have left! 
P.S.Thank you all for your sweet, understanding comments on my last post, ya'll are the best!

      Wonderful things to be thankful for! I am already getting my curriculum thoughts together also. Seems so early doesn't it?
