blah... yeah.  it seems as if i got nothing done today.  that seems to happen a lot on monday!  however, if i do a true revamp, i did do something.
  • i finished my grocery shopping (meats)... only to find out we only have a gallon of milk left! 
  • i cooked some meat in the crockpot.  and made breakfast, lunch, and pumpkin joes for dinner.
  • i went to a 2 hour class with my hubby-lub.
  • i made a birthday cake for my second eldest child who will be turning 6 tomorrow!  from scratch.  without a mixer.  that won't come out of the pan.  poor aleemay!  her cake is ALWAYS UGLY
  • i finished reading "balto and the great race" with aleemay. 
  • endless cleaning inserted here...  everyday.  endless. 
yeah,  i think that's it.  bluck.  what a day of unproductivity. 
Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." COMMENT! IT SHOWS ME THAT I'M BEING READ!!!

What is unproductive to one person seemed indrecibly productive to another. Ease up on yourself. Do you remember all the ugly birthday cakes your mother made? If not, then it doesn't matter. What matters is the thought behind the baking of the cake. YOu're wonderful!!!

whew! what an incredibly busy unproductive day!
don't forget you talked to you one of your sisters for like 45 min. too! :) that probably took a bit of time out of the day for getting stuff done!
love you.

Hey [Anwat]! Endless cleaning... everyday... endless... I can relate to this, but surely not to the extent you can! Girl you have your hands full. But soooo not in a bad way! Look at all these little ones you have the priviledge and opportunity to impart God's love to everyday! That is nothing short of productive! May the Lord give you the strength to not only get through and accomplish the mundane tasks, but the wisdom to see that even those tasks are glorifying to God. Hats off to you and your family =)
