Why is it that halfway through the month I finally figure out what my goal is? It doesn't really bother me since I believe I've trained myself pretty well the last 9 months to tackle things on a regular basis, and I've certainly been aggressive this month.
Most days I've spent large chunks of time working on Uncommon Women. It's been so rewarding and very exciting! I'm happy with the start up of its web presence. Last night I bought the domain name "uncommonwomen.net" and have it linked to the blog (.com and .org were taken.) I'm organizing a Holiday Show & Sale for November 7th and I'm trying to figure out what October's event is going to be.
Yesterday I conquered my craft/crap closet and area, organized it all and turned it into a playroom. It was an undertaking I'd been meaning to get to for nearly 2 years. Yikes. But it's FINALLY done!! I'm excited about getting some colorful educational posters to put up on the walls and going to Ikea for a couple bean bag chairs to fill the area in a bit. I moved all of Wilder's toys from the downstairs living spaces upstairs to his room and the playroom. He's had so much fun hanging out in his room playing away and it's WONDERFUL reclaiming my peaceful areas in the house.
September's goal is basically kicking butt. I would say it's organizing my life, but that's a little too specific. I've already decided October's goal is going to be about cooking and I'm looking forward to that one! It's great getting a handle on some of the areas and items in my life that need to be whipped into shape.
Today I'm going to take it easy, at least that's what I'm telling myself. Taking a small hiatus to recharge and rest a bit. All this conquering and excitement has made me a bit exhausted. Plus Wilder got up ridiculously early and I'm still not quite awake (nor do I want to be.)
I pray that you would seek and receive refreshment today, too. I am so thankful for the wonderful things that have been happening in our lives despite the major unknowns we're still facing. I have full confidence in God's provision and guidance.
Peace be with you today.
