My Goals Tonight and Tomorrow

A virtuous or fine wife (noble character) is one who is capable, diligent, worthy and good.  Her worth cannot be measured in terms of costly jewels.  Her husband can have full confidence in her, with no need to fear any lack of honest gain.  Her efforts are put forth to help him.  Proverbs 31:10-12 (Believers' Bible Commentary)

Today my husband asked me something simple.  We've been sick for quite some time and he said that we should wash the sheets.  I said that it was a great idea, Ok!  His sentence after that floored me and gave me a bit of a reprove.  I hate doing laundry.  I do procrastinate.  I wish we had less of it, or more space to just store it.  Anyways, knowing this he said to me, "Hmm...I know we need it washed but I hate sleeping without sheets..."  This got me thinking about how my own laziness and own attitude with laundry has affected Andy.  I got to cut this out of my life, and be more diligent!  He works so hard, and I need to work hard too at home.  I desire to have my husband's confidence in me.  It is something to treasure and not to be taken lightly of.  For all those who are diligent and have kept their houses in order, I admire you!  Your work is not in vain.  Not in vain at all--God sees you and....your Husband does too!  This is something that your children will also see and call you blessed.  Proverbs 31: 28, 29.  I just want to encourage you all.  Lets keep keeping the home!

Priority One:  Finish my laundry and get sheets on the bed.
Two: Keep baby sleeping as long as possible!
Three: Create a Grocery List and Cut out any Coupons
Four: Make a lunch for Andy and Breakfast for tomorrow
Five: Organize Sponsors and List out Sponsor Dates on Calendar
Six: Post up Extra Entries for my March Madness Event
Seven: Write up at least one post for one sponsor
Eight: Post up Crayon Crocheted Afghan Review 

I love and hate lists, but I really like the fact that I can see where my priorities lay!
I had to several times make sure I got family related errands listed before my computer things :)

Goodnight!  Alas, my laundry has just beeped--ready for folding!
