"Hearts at Home"

This is my first "Hearts at Home" post... So for a "Hearts at Home" post if you don't know all ready is a post in which you list 4-6 things that you do, or will be doing this week to encourage yourself and other stay at home moms to keep your "Hearts at Home" put on by Gae over at Cherished Hearts at Home. So on with my post...

This week I will be working on our lesson plans for the fall (and if I am real lucky I might get all the way til spring done) I will be incorporating more crafts and meal prep/planning for my girls and more hobbyish stuff fr my son.

I will continue to pray for help having a gracious and thankful heart, by not letting my grumpies show through when doing housework I don't like, grumbling because it's hot, or being in a mood because my husband is running late coming home from work, instead I will try to focus on the positive of each situation, at least I have a house to clean, it could be cold : ) , and so on.

I am reworking our chore and school schedule so that we have a bit more free time during the day, and more "quick clean" times so that instead of doing a huge block of chores we will be breaking it up through out the day.

I have made some new goals for myself to always have the dishes washed and put away before I leave the house and before I go to bed, and to have the house picked up before my husband comes home each day. These are some things that I think make me feel better which in turn makes me in a better mood and that just flows though to every one else : )

What are you doing this week to keep your "Heart at Home"?
