My BIG FAT January 2008 To-Do List


Last night I made home-made chili and my husband made home-made cornbread. We laughed as we shopped at the grocery store - there was not a can of black eyed peas on the shelf. I bought some purple hull peas to cook, but didn't do it. We spent New Years eve making home-made kolaches (poppyseed and apricot) and pumpernickel bread. We played Crazy 8 (a card game) and danced in the kitchen to "What are You Doing New Years?" (big band version). I also cleaned the pantry out, hung up my 2008 calendar and weighed in.

I'm a busy bee this new year. At least I should be busy. This first day back to school I got up at 5:30am to tackle 2008 face on. We'll be doing light school today and then meeting some buddies at the library... and then going to spend some gift certificates this evening at the mall. Below I have listed what I'll be up to this month... and the bolded items are what is most important right now. I'll be checking back in on this post to cross it off.

Holy Moly, girlfriend! You make my life look easy. LOL! Maybe I'll get motivated to make an entire list - AND post it on my blog. We'll see. Meantime, I'll be cheering you on! You go, Queen Bee! :D

Seems like in times like these we need a more secure anchor to steady our souls, so I am spending more time in His presence. I am also beginning a 21 day Daniel fast just to get that flesh in check. Have fun and be blessed. mastermom
