March 15, 2018

I woke up, read my Bible, and spent the day organizing everything I own! Now, everything in the apartment is neat and organized except for the piles of stuff on my fold up table and my desk! I’m hoping to get the those tomorrow before Shelby comes over, but first I’ll have to do the dishes and toss out all this cardboard from breaking down boxes! I watched Boy Meets World while doing most of it.

I did take a break for a few hours to go watch the kids. We ate popcorn and chocolate and watched Wonder. I’m gonna have to rewatch it because a few parts were lost on me as watching a movie with kids is difficult! They were mostly very well behaved though. I’m proud of them! πŸ™‚


March 14, 2018

I woke up and went for a walk with Ciara before chatting for a little while. Then, I went to Walmart, Target, and the mall to find an ID holder. I found three, but only one doubles as a change purse! I would have liked to have options, but I’m really glad my only option was the little mermaid! πŸ§œπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Then, I went to Nanny’s house to celebrate the February birthdays/spring break. We ate pizza (GF for me of course),salad, & I had a small serving of Mac & Cheese. When I came home, I continued my spring cleaning/organizing. My room actually has space! When I’m done in the living room, the whole apartment will look brand new! And that’s mostly just from breaking down cardboard boxes! It’s true, I am a hoarder! I’m working on breaking that though! I bagged up shoes that don’t fit/I can wear because of heels and a few clothes. I’m getting rid of odds and ends I don’t need/use. And I’m trying to put everything in its place so that when I move (hopefully in October when our lease is up) I won’t have to work so hard to pack/organize everything! I didn’t read my Bible today, but I did listen to Jeremy Camp and I did read the verse of the day, so all was not lost. I’ve been told the electrician WILL be here tomorrow or Friday, so I really hope it’s true this time! I’d rather it be tomorrow, but idc as long as the lights stay on and we’re safe from potential electric damage until he comes. I might FaceTime Holly tomorrow! And Shelby is for sure coming over Friday evening! We’re gonna color in our coloring books because we truly are five! πŸ˜‚

March 4, 2018

I woke up from a weird dream that was like an episode of Sister Sister with Tia, Tamera, Tyrek, and Jordan!

Then I went to church and served with two babies and a toddler for the second service.

For lunch, our small group–Bill, Ciara, Robert, Morgan, and I–made impromptu to plans to eat at Panda Express. They didn’t have a gluten free menu, so I just ate steamed rice. It was good!

At Nanny’s House, Jacob taught me how to play Chess! πŸ™‚ It’s fun! And frustrating! Haha.

Then, I wrote my blog post about serving! πŸ™‚

March 2, 2018 – So Many Job Applications…!

I was going to spend the day writing the final chapter forΒ The Mask; Her Aid and then editing the whole book so I could ask Shelby to read it, but then I ended up applying for jobs all day. I don’t even remember what I’ve applied for at this point. All I hope is that I can find a job where I don’t have to work on Sundays at all or on Tuesday and Saturday evenings so I can go to small group and sleep before church on Sunday!

I also walked to get the girls. Naomi’s knee was hurting, so we drove from the apartment. Then, Lydia went grocery shopping with me. I fed her and took her home afterward.

Oh, and today I decided that after I finish this current plot with Mal in Texas, I’m going to turn Malachi Gregory into a book. Then, I’ll work on the next plots I have in mind for the second book! πŸ™‚

February 28, 2018 – To Be Continued… πŸ˜’

I woke up. I walked 5.6 miles. I read my Bible. I read Live Original. I watched Jamie Grace videos. I listened to Jamie Grace and Ann Voskamp podcasts. I got a shower and right when I got out the electricity went out in ONLY OUR APARTMENT. Seriously, the neighbors next to my room are currently watching to a loud movie! πŸ˜’ And I have to go to bed early now, because they freaking apartment people will be here some time after 7 in the morning. πŸ˜’ I’m trying to be grateful that I have an apartment, but this is really stupid! 😣

February 25, 2018

I woke up before my alarm, so I listened to a podcast about singleness. Then I went to church where we talked about the purity of marriage and how messed up the world’s view of marriage is. Then, I helped lead youth where we also talked about sex.

I’m really glad we did. It’s often such a forbidden topic in church, that it’s like cursing or something. It was good to talk about even if a bit awkward at times.

I came home, ate, then went to Nanny’s. I came home, showered, wrote a scene for MG, and now I’m gonna read some of the One and go to sleep!
