I have decided.
I have decided (which is more than half the battle, y'know?)...AHEM.
I have decided:
a) I will make the Lord my focus each day, and I will walk in the path He's set before my feet. I will do this INTENTIONALLY.
b) I will be the mother and wife I want to be. If not now, then when? Better to do it now.
c) I will be more organized in 2012.
d) I will post each night before bed as recap.
e) I will get my Lists in order and keep them.
f) I will start to catch up all of the projects I have started and not finished.
g) I will clean the house from top to bottom, and I will be the Keeper of THIS House.
h) I will get our Emergency Prep Plans back under control, and then I will implement them. No more putting things off....not in these times.
To further all these aims, I am using the rest of December as "Prep Month". I need to get my planners updated and organized. I've been woefully under-organized the last four years. That must stop.
Funny how once you make the Plan to Start, the adrenaline starts to flow. One wouldn't equate the start of a race for instance with a (re)start of Homemaking. But I suppose it's all the same to your brain chemistry. It's an eagerly anticipated event, something to be sought after and waited for (however impatiently).
And I've waited a LONG TIME to reach this point.
I am home. Thank God.
