Today is a day to roam from one task to another in an effort to catch-up and maintain some semblance of order and peace in our life.
First, off to the grocery store to help shop for a home for handicapped kids and adults – one of my part-time jobs. That makes every Wednesday a small payday of it’s own. This year I’m making it a game to see how much of our grocery supply I can provide off of this small check. We are eating through the freezer and pantry to see how far we can stretch without a major shopping trip. Any money we save from this will go into our newly opened savings account! We haven’t had a savings account in many, many years. Now, we have one, albeit a small one. I’m counting it as a major win in our effort to live more intentionally and be more fiscally responsible.
Next, a major push to catch-up on the homeschooling front. We had a lot of fun during the holidays celebrating with family and friends. I’m sure we learned more than a thing or two, but…we didn’t actually do any of the “official” school stuff that I had written in the planner. Now, we are trudging through. As always, I’m not putting too much emphasis on the books and worksheets. They can be useful, but are not the be-all and end-all of learning.
Finally, I’m going to work on clearing out the studio in preparation for a weekend renovation binge. Friday is the big payday and I get to buy the paint and flooring to finish out the space. I’ve decided on white paint for the walls, placid sea (blueish) for the cabinet, and citrus peel for the shelves. The floor will be black and white linoleum squares.
Payday is always exciting around here, but this one will be especially welcome. I can’t wait to have a new space to work in. I have lots of projects in mind!
I am feeling extraordinarily creative at the moment. Not sure what’s prompting it, but it is a welcome change. Perhaps the increased meds are helping. The cloud seems to be lifting.
Life is good!
