Trying to be more organized

This a really hard part of life for me. Trying to be more organized in school, with our money and time.

I must admit, school has been too loose this year. John has been doing most of his school by himself which is okay for him. But we are starting way too late and not very organized at all. Joseph does all his school with me and I feel he is on track. I don't know if it is where John is working on his own that I feel like he is not learning anything. Time will tell on that because we had testing last week.

Being better stewards of what money God has given us. We are very loose in this area too. We are currently working on a budget and envelopes to pay cash for things like food and gas. Matt has reread Dave Ramsey's The Total Money Makeover and has me reading it too. We are realizing we are not planning very well at all and need to make big changes in this area. We are working on paying off our house and hope to be done this year. Then on to saving for a van, retirement and college. It really doesn't look like Matt will ever be able to stop consulting but maybe slow down some.

Planning my time. I have got to start a schedule, planning meals and not just let things happen. Things seem to get done but not like I would like them too. I send way too much time on the computer.

Well, you can see I need lots of prayer. God does have the grace for me to do it. I just need to trust him more and prayer harder for sure.

I suspect you're still ahead of 95% of the general population.
