I am trying to be better about this. I didn’t spend anything yesterday. Today’s spending:
- $25.50 to take Zach & Megan to see Voyage of the Dawn Treader for a last-day-of-vacation treat.
- $6 on drinks at the movie
- $2.98 on notebooks for each of the kids to use for their science fair displays
- $3.39 coffee
- 79 cents Snickers bar
- $8.99 calendar
I did my Bible reading today and yesterday through the One Year Bible Blog. I’m hoping to get a group from church to do it with me and get together once a week, or once every two weeks, to discuss. The blog posts group discussion questions.
Tomorrow is back to school and back to work, and while I feel a bit melancholy that this wonderful Christmas season and break is at an end, I am SO blessed that I am not dreading it! I will miss this time I’ve had with my family, but it will be good to see those kids again. I’m looking forward to Zach’s first private trumpet lesson Wednesday, to the kids’ doing the science fair, to Megan getting to go to her first real 4H meeting this month, to working with the preschoolers at church on Wednesday nights, to beginning to see clients at RETA on my own, to playing the sax with the band again in a couple of weeks, to taking my children’s lit class (just waiting for approval from the school) — so many good things in store for my family this year!
