The holidays are long gone, we are nearly a whole month into 2017, and I feel like life is finally starting to level out a bit. For the first part of the month I couldn’t get a grasp on it actually being 2017. Now, I am starting to feel like this year is going to fly by.
Today I want to share what’s up with the Newman’s, giving you a little peek into our life currently.
What we are eating this week…
Well, this isn’t exactly a normal week for us so don’t judge, m’kay?
Monday: Dinner Out
Tuesday: Homemade Pizza
Thursday: Home group meal
Friday: Russ’ lasagna birthday dinner
Saturday: Tamale Pie
Sunday: Lasagna leftovers
What I’m reminiscing about…
Memories of grandpa John. I may not of know him super well, but he definitely had a place in my heart. Russ and I were recently talking about how silly the girls thought he was the last time we were up there. “Oh mama, he’s so silly.” He was an amazing man of God and will be greatly missed here on earth.
What I’m loving…
Lately I cannot get enough of Target. The girls and I have been making weekly trips there just to browse the store and escape home for a bit. We go on a weekday in the afternoon and almost have the store to ourselves. It has also been a GREAT mental/financial exercise at keeping self-control. Because I really just want to buy ALL the things.
What we’ve been up to…
Trying to adjust to the new year. I feel like we are just really getting our fee under us. Life lately has been pretty uneventful but I am okay with that. Staying home means fewer opportunities to pickup unwanted germs. Yup, I’m a total germaphobe.
What I’m dreading…
Picking out curriculum for the next school year. Sadly it is getting close to the time that I already start thinking about that. Crazy, right?! I have an idea of the direction I want to go, It’s just a whole lot of work and research to piece it all together.
What I’m working on…
Trying to stay on top of the budget. I am SO bad about keeping a really close eye on it the first week of the month, then forgetting it until the very end. All this does is create a whole lot of work for me and I usually complain via text messages to Anna and/or Stephanie. Sorry ladies. I’m working on it.
This song on repeat all the live long day. In fact, I am listening to it right now!
I’ll praise you
Even when the fight is won
I’ll praise you
Even when my time on earth is done
Louder then I’ll sing your praise
Valentines, Emily’s 6th birthday, my MIL’s birthday, and Marissa is competing in an out-of-town Bible quiz team event! February has shaped up to be a pretty busy month for our family. Hopefully we’ll even get a little bit of snow too!
