*I have put all this pressure on myself to do a pic every day. I am extending grace to myself. Frankly, my life isn't interesting enough to do a pic a day so bear with me and my lack of pics.
*I am doing a little experiment with Madeline today. She has to think before she speaks. She cannot say anything until she stops and thinks about it. We will see what happens. She has had quite the attitude lately and I am tired of it.
*We are plugging along with school. I am starting to think ahead to next year and the curriculum changes I want to make. Pretty exciting!
*I am feeling very peripheral these days. It is a difficult thing to make new friends or to be in a group of women who have been in relationship with one another for years. Talk about feeling like a newb. But relationships are worth fighting for and I am facing the challenge the best I know how.
*Chad and I are are officially out of credit card debt. I cannot tell you how liberating that feels. We have carried credit card debt our entire marriage and I made some horrible choices and made it MUCH worse. We were in over our heads and it was mainly my fault. Talk about a marriage breaker but Chad loved me through it. The easy thing would have been to file for bankruptcy but we knew we needed to take responsibility and pay it off. We have lived credit card free for two and a half years. We will have all those cards paid off by the end of the day today. I could cry.
