Day 7 and the crazy things that happened.

Today's challenges were:::
-Get rid of 7 things ( I would like to make sure I have 42-I'd be caught up)
-vacuum main living areas (vacuumed yesterday)
-wipe down baseboards
-list 5-7 things to do today

1. 10 minutes of pilates
2. video 2 of weighdownathome
3. blog about the day
4. work on our budget
5. make dinner for Billy.

Ok so. I'm blogging about today, and that is as far as I have gotten.

I came home and decided I would clean the baseboards when I'm home this weekend. So I began to read power of a praying wife, which is on my weekly goal to-do. After a chapter of that, I picked up Lysa Terkeurst's book Becoming more than a good bible study girl. God had big plans for me today...

For those of you who don't know, I have had an extremely rough relationship with a former friend of mine over the past year+. I was bitter and hurt and couldn't get past it. It filled my thoughts, and I would pray and pray for a different perspective. 

So I got a different perspective today- YAY! :) #thankfulforansweredprayers <3

So then I felt I needed to do something about this new perspective. So I wrote her a letter. Now all I need is the guts to send it to her.

So yes, God had other plans for me today. So now I will go put dinner in the oven for Billy and get 10 minutes of pilates in, and if all goes well, I will watch the weighdown video and redo the budget. :)

P.S. If people you were once close to are having a wedding shower, and you are pretty sure you aren't invited, do you give them a gift anyways?

I'll let you know my thoughts on that tomorrow---only if anyone else weighs in with their opinions, so please, spill your guts out to me :)


  1. Honestly, no I would not. If I am not a good enough friend to be invited, then they do not deserve the time and energy I would need to invest in finding said gift, not to mention the money involved.

    1. That's what mom said too. And money is certainly tight.

  2. I would send a small gift especially if you want to rekindle the friendship.

    1. Good point, but I have no idea if there is any potential for rekindling, or if I would want to rekindle it. But more on that in the next post :)

      Thanks for reading :)

  3. I did receive a comment on FB as well, which was that yes, I should do it. This person knows the whole situation, so her input means a lot.

    Check back later tonight for my thoughts :) and of course, day 8!
