Order in the Blog

Okay, okay, I'm back. I have missed writing and reading around my favorite spots. I'm ready for a little more normality in my days, and time spent writing out my thoughts. This morning I decided to put myself on a little bit of a schedule. I know my head tips to the I only have a right brain in my head, but I thought giving myself some direction would help. So, from here on out I will be writing on different subjects everyday. Here is my first trial schedule. Let me know what you think. Certainly, I will interject my own ideas off the subject if they interest me.

Monday Managing our Budget
Tuesday Toddler Tips
Wednesday Week in Food
Thursday Portrait of a Saint
Friday Faith and encouragement

These are topics I think on often, and writing about them will keep me more organized. Jason and I are going on a lunch date tomorrow to do our budget for the the year. We have some ambitious goals that we hope to achieve before he graduates from seminary. I will share our ideas and tips to saving money here on Monday.

Tuesday is obvious. Tips to help in the training of our littles.

Wednesday is the day I make our weekly meal schedule. It's the day that the groceries put out adds, and I take time to plan out meals and company we plan to host through the week. Wednesday is nice because we eat at church. It's my night off (if I'm not doing the meal), so it's a good day for grocery shopping. I will also share the ways I work to save on the bill (an ever increasing challenge with rising food prices).

Thursday will be a day where I highlight the lives and faith of people who love Jesus and encourage me to do the same. From everyday friends to authors and Bible characters, I hope to shed light of the many faces that love Jesus in meaningful ways.

Friday ends the week on faith and thoughts about Jesus. I hope you will visit and leave input on the days that interest you. The new year excites me, and I eagerly await what the Lord has for our family.

If anyone is interested....I am on the lookout for a boy name. We don't ever know if we are having a boy or a girl, but we are at a total loss for a boy name.

I don't think I've ever posted here, but I have been reading your blog for a while now. I appreciate your candid honesty about your life and feelings. I have 5 little ones in my home from (almost) 1 to (almost) 10 years old. I look forward to your daily blogs and I love the topics you have chosen!
As for a boy name, well, it probably doesn't "go" with the names of your other children, but our choice for our next boy is Josiah.
Happy New Year!

I actually love that name. The most righteous king in the Bible. Love it, but you know how a name is already taken in your circle of friends. That one is taken in mine. Great suggestion!

Yay! I look forward to reading your blog even more now-- and equally as much to see if Miss Kara can actually stick to a schedule?! But I have faith that you can :o) And I have a whole list of boy names in my head. I will write them all down and email them to you!
lots of love

You know me too well Amy! I really think the schedule will give me some direction. I'm looking forward to it!

Bring on the boy names. Remember no strong sounds at the begining of the name for Jason.

Thanks for the support.

A place to find encouragement to love your little ones, your husbands and those you come in contact with daily. Two does not have to be terrible. These are years to grow not simply get through!
