FlyLady

Last week I was introduced to the FlyLady.  Thank you, Beth.  (FLY stands for Finally Loving Yourself, by the way.) There are a lot of really good tips and ideas on that site.  However, please be aware that if you register for the FlyLady “newsletter” you’ll be receiving 12 e-mails a day.  It can be pretty overwhelming.  She…

DoodleBug’s Piano and Choir

Well, today has been oh, so enjoyable.  After church we went out for dinner and then came home, played piano together for fun, and just spent time together.  Back to church for a 5 – 6:30 pm Children’s choir practice for their Christmas program.  My 6 year old DoodleBug has a solo in the program.  The…

Confidence

Over my lifetime, I’ve often found that I put myself down (in my thoughts) or that I believe other people if they put me down in some way or another.  But, that’s not how we are to live as Christians. For one thing, when God created each of us, He did so in such a…

Orderliness

When it comes to school assignments, creating training materials and preparation when I speak, my writing, etc., I am organized.  But, I am definitely not the most organized person in the world in the rest of life.  At least not yet.  At times my office desk acts as a black hole where things get lost…

These classes I’ve been taking have been a…

Refreshed

A Great Feeling of Accomplishment

I have spent the last three days snowed under with homework, proofing and tweaking my final paper, making sure that I don’t miss anything that should be submitted by Thursday.  I’m exhausted because I’ve been working all night long for two nights in a row with about 9 hours of sleep in the last 60 hours. …

Home

I have been a career girl all of my adult life.  Going off to work, I’ve kept myself extremely busy… and away from home a lot.   What I discovered is that a person can give their lives to their jobs.  They can end up working overtime, missing out on family activities because the boss said a hour…
