Today's Bible Study- Genesis 24
(I am working on Romans 1. I gave up doing commentaries in 2 places and have just decided to do this one.

Today's Hymn This is also a hymn written by Isaac Watts.

5873 Steps yesterday. (Not quite my goal, but I took my phone off before bed so all the bedtime routine walking wasn't recorded.)

I did the minimum of my morning routine this morning.

Today's schedule includes finishing my morning routine, breakfast, school, closing out the church books for January as well as my own books (which I still haven't done), working on the church's music, paying the bills for the month for the church (Hubby takes care of ours) and setting up a Facebook party.

Sold two more books on eBay so I need to get those ready to go out.

I still need to make some videos in preparation for one I will probably hold next week.

Death is not the worst thing

Flexi of the Day:


This deal has been extended through the month of February! Contact me. Facebook parties count!

  Early Morning Routine: Finished

  • Dress
  • Swish and Swipe the Master bath (change trash bags in Master Bath can, wash the mirror, wash the toilet)
  • Made my bed
  • Straightened up my bedroom.
  • Started a load of laundry
  • Fixed Hubby's KoolAid for supper
  • Fixed my coffee
  • Devotions time
  • Worked on my Dad's book for 5 minutes (I literally set a timer)

I still need to:

  • Dry and Fold laundry(My norm is one load a day, but I need to old 2 to be caught up)
  • Do my emails, deleting everything I won't need in the future
  • Check off the children's computer school work
  • Clean the Family bath
  • Make the 6yo's bed (its a loft bed and he can't reach it well enough to make it)
  • Vacuum the kids rooms and hall
  • Water my plants
  • Shower
  • Cut up veggies for munchies
  • Walk around the block (not today)
  • School

Later today: (having trouble getting to these at all, and won't today. This is the day I meet my dad for lunch.)

  • Practice my music
  • Do an herbal lesson
  • Clean unders all around the house
Got the dusting and fingerprints done yesterday.

Evening Routine

  • Fix the coffee on the timer for the morning.
  • Fix water for Hubby and I (big, 100 cups like you buy at convenience stores. This is a day's water and we aim to drink the whole thing.)
  • Shine my sink
  • I'm adding "clean up 'hot spots'"
  • Set all the mouse traps.

Monthly Habit we are building:

Decluttering Daily: need to clean out the basement, attic, garage, storage? Set a timer, making an appointment with yourself to spend 5 minutes a day working on it.

I think I will start with the cars that are storing books. These need to be listed on eBay, so its a bit more involved than just tossing them in the trash.

Weekly zone focus:  

Living and Dining rooms (I don't have an entry way, though Flaylady includes it this week)

(This is the zone we are tackling all our monthly and less often chores in this week) 

Today's Meals:

  • BLTs
  • Out with Grandpa
  • Date Night

 Today's FlyLady Mission:

  • Declutter and dust the dinning room

Tami's assignments (Tami is a homeschooling mom of 6 who is a partner of FlyLady):

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
