Homemaking Tip for this week:
Establishing a routine is the best way to get everything you need done and still have time to spare. If you want to read, or craft or sew or crochet or even catch up on a favorite show, make time for it, put that into your schedule and routine, you'll find that if you allot times for everything, you will have enough hours in the day to accomplish all you want.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Haven't had time to read blogs this past week.

Lesson learned the past few days:
That I'm not ready for the teenage years and the phase where it's not cool to be with mommy. I always knew it would come around but I wasn't prepared for the hurt and the feeling of helplessness even though you know it's perfectly normal and they will get over it. Still sucks LOL

Family and Friends
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
We love because he first loved us.
1 John 4:19
