Time to reflect!

It's Friday – time to reflect on the week!
High points:
  • Participated in my online prayer group, Good Morning Girls, every day
  • Wrote in my blog every day
  • Put a HUGE dent in the clean laundry that needed to be put away
  • Spent time on my Dove chocolate discoveries Biz
  • Had some one-on-one time with my husband 3 days this week
  • I cut out 9oz of coffee from my diet every day
  • Did the star rewards chart with the boys every day
  • Jaxon said his first clear word “peak-a-boo”
  • Brant's teacher told me how well behaved and sweet he was. “It must be very calm in your house.” That made me laugh but what a compliment!
Low Points:
  • Drank only ONE smoothie this week
  • Did not eat one salad this week
  • Did not eat any lentils this week
  • While reading for my prayer group the kids began to fight and I screamed, WILL YOU KNOCK IT OFF?! CAN I READ THE BIBLE FOR A WHOLE FIVE MINUTES WITHOUT SOMEONE FIGHTING?!?
  • Besides chasing the kids up and down the hallway, pretending to be a dinosaur, I did not work out this week. In fact the workout DVD I bought over a week ago has only been picked up by the boys 
Random points:
My friends and family all make fun of how OFTEN I use my kitchen shears. So I have posted four examples of how I use them. To cut up a pancake for the kids, to chunk up frozen yogurt for Jaxon, to remove the tails off shrimp, to cut up green onion.


  1. OMG I thought I was the only one that used kitchen shears as a third hand. I have two pairs! Great minds think alike :)

  2. LOL! Perfect description - yes my third hand. My kids are going to think knives are just for spreading butter - not cutting up food. Yeah I have three pairs. And I know where they are at all times!
