Friend Makin Monday

*******Totally messed up on this one...this should have been under this...oh well, I will get back on schedule next week....Sorry



This week's question: What is your biggest obstacle right now? How are you making plans to overcome/push forward?

I love this weekly "get to know you" that Amber hosts. I love her blog and it again reaffirms what I have always thought....we are all facing the same battles and challenges..be sure and check out her blog..... and join in the fun.


In this season of my life three things immediately come to mind...

I need to exercise MORE!
I need to MAKE BETTER FOOD CHOICES !
AND

I need to MANAGE my TIME BETTER... how I go about doing these things ..... JUST ONE DAY AT A TIME.
Some days I do good, some days I do much less than good.
AS tree season begins, all three of the things become harder and also more NEEDED...So again tomorrow,
I am thankful for NEW BEGINNINGS.

I will be posting this week on the Christmas blog,
A Baby Changes Everything
so stop by and visit. There are so many new followers.
I am planning a surprise gift when I reach a certain number. You might just be the one! I came home from market late tonight with so many new ornaments and fun holiday goodies...I am looking forward to giving some away.
On that note,this blog is about to reach the
400 mark in followers...WOW, how did that happen in six months? I think I need a prize for the
400th person who follows this very ordinary blog written by this very ordinary person.

I will leave the "Ask Away" post open for a couple more days and then try to answer the questions.

My biggest obstacle right now is how to keep from moidering my 17 yr old before she graduates this year! Argh! And at the same time, how to spend more time with God!

I guess if I do #2 then #1 will be taken care of!! Ahh, still learning!

My biggest obstacle is time management. I run my household. Do the bookwork for the Ponderosa. Watch my aging MIL with many issues. Try to keep up with my aging parents who live ll45mi. away. Have eight grandchildren.Teach Sunday school. Kids church director. I dearly want to push me childrens books but they always take the back seat. This is why I retired teaching.

Sorry, I didn't mean to vent. 'Guess I needed that.

Have a beautiful fall Monday!!!

My biggest challenge right now is learning how to discipline a 2 year old the right way... Parenting is so much harder than I ever imagined!!

My biggest challenge is trying to stay off the blogs and accomplish something in my home. I can sit for hours reading and writing on the blogs. How to budget time for the blogs? This is my million dollar question.

My biggest obstacle it to prioritize my life better, God first at the beginning and throughout the day, then families needs til everyone is out of the house, then working on daily things around the home before blogging.

I need to also take advantage of the option to post your blog automatically instead of trying to jump on first thing in the morning.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

My biggest obstacle is learning how to relax after quitting my job of 9 years! I just have the hardest time sitting still, but I am learning little by little.

Forgot to mention two things:

You are FAR from just an ordinary person. I would say extraordinary!
