Today's Bible Study- Introduction to Exodus
and Romans 3

Today's Hymn

3741 steps recorded yesterday. I don't wear my phone during church, so those steps weren't counted. Not feeling real well.
There are an estimated 2 million words in English (counting run, runs, running as three words) making it the biggest language the planet has ever seen, by far.

Those 2 million words are created with 44 sounds (give or take, depending on your accent).

Those 44 sounds are represented by 104 phonograms (literally, "sound pictures" in Greek) formed with a mere 26 letters.

Computer analysis says despite all this, English is 98% phonetically correct, using less than 200 rules.

So, to read English you have to memorize 26 letters, 44 sounds, 104 phonograms, and less than 200 rules.

Since the average illiterate actually has 1000 words memorized, this is more than reasonable to expect someone to do.

Still on schedule for this week:
  • Finish getting the house back in order.I just don't feel well. Like I've been hovering on the edge of being sick for 3 weeks.
  • Mount Never Rest (laundry)
  • Decide on events for both the church and my business.  (:-) found some Facebook pages that will help this!)
  • Still have to do the videos
  • Exchange son #1's sim card for one that fits. Did talk to tech support and a SIM that fits is supposed to be on the way.
  • Declutter 3 armloads of books from the car.(or go through drawers. Or both. One dresser is empty on the inside. Need to list a bunch of stuff with Craigslist, too. They are too good to throw away, but the thrift stores won't take them [baby things, electronics, sleeping bags because its not camping season.)
  • Get some packages ready to mail. All done. Just need to go to the post office.
  • Cut up some veggies for snacks.
  • Fixed up my new "Display Purse." This is a large bag with clear vinyl on the side to put pictures, or in my case, Flexi's in so I can be a walking billboard.

Flexi of the Day:  

For my routines, see the sidebar.

Monthly Habit we are building:

Get dressed every morning to the shoes.

Flylady began working with mostly stay at home moms. We SAHM often have the problem with this (I never have, but I understand why others do). It really does make a difference to get dressed each day.

(I am not going to wear shoes. I'm just not. Call me a rebel. I will wear socks when it is cold.)

Weekly zone focus:  

East end of the house (kids rooms and their bathroom.) Flylady calls this zone "main bathroom plus one other room" telling us this week to focus on stash-and-dash rooms/places. For me, that's the outside storage that needs listing on craigslist and ebay.

The mattresses finally arrived.

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

Today's Meals:

  • SOS (Search or Starve)
  • SOS
  • Roast and taters

FlyLady Daily Mission

  •  Detail clean the main toilet in the house, and the floor around it. 
  • Spend 5 minutes decluttering the stash-and-dash rooms/places

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

    • Declutter the countertops in the main bath.

    "To take the first step in faith, you don't have to see the whole staircase: just take the first step." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This applies to a clean house, too.

    "Anything worth doing is worth doing Imperfectly" - Flylady

    "Baby Steps."

    "You can do anything for 15 minutes." 

    "You are not behind. Just jump in where you are."

    "Your house didn't get this way overnight. It won't get under control in a day. It takes time."

    How about you? What's on your list today?

    Have a great day!

    I highly recommend

    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.
