    Hello August... u have creeped upon me.
    As I sit here ready to go put on my praise. That's exactly what I am gonna do. I can NOT frett cuz I have lost track the last few weeks. With preparing for school. We have dentist apt this week along with our yearly check up on Friday..
    Trying to get this custody case on track, not doing so well with that. Doing a bit of home repares the last few weeks.i have grandbabies more & more, for that I do Praise God.
    But my schedule, changed my routine of 3 months. So now i am all messed up.if any of u know me. I am an on track mind girl. I like to know what, where & how my weeks r gonna b. So this evening I am taking back what has been robbed of sort of speaking.

    Have a blessed day to all..

    Put on the garment of PRAISE. .......

    I understand trying to regain time and routines. Slow and steady with a lot of grace seems to work.:)

    Looks like the school holidays are winding up.
    Jess, I am much the same, as much as I like a change in routine I am a girl that likes routine in her day.
    Mary, as always an amazing list, I love your Happier me checklist, we should all have one of these.
    Dawn Su, hope that you get back on track soon.

    I haven't been great this week so far on making time during the day to work on my filing cabinet. This really irritates me because it needs to be done, but I find that i'm lucky to get any schoolwork done. I also have been slacking on water and still haven't gotten 3 workouts or smoothies in. :rolleyes: I was ambitious starting all of these things at once, but y'all know me! I jump right in. Not to mention all the school stuff I haven't touched.

    DH is technically off of leave and should be back to work. However, no one bothered to do the paperwork to send him to his new position. He is just floating around right now with no job, which means he is home pretty much all day. I can't work with him at home. He has homework too but he wants to have the TV on while he's working and I can't do that. I need quiet. It's cramping my style.

    A lot of things mot marked off this week. Either have to reassess what goes on my list or actually get off my butt and finish the list.

    I didn't get as much done on my list as I had hoped. Flylady got put to the side for the most part. I'll either catch up little by little over the next week or I'll just wait until next month.
