So Teach Us to Number Our Days that We May Gain a Heart of Wisdom--Psalm 90:12
I have thought long and hard about the days when I would have my own set of working wheels. For a long time, I was just simply a real "Stay at Home Mom". I did not have a car to drive and all we could really do is walk up and down the quiet roads near our house. Quite frankly I began just praying for the day when I would get my own car to drive around. I am 24 years old now, and I am proud to say that I do own that grey beat up Buick in my parking spot and it is my first car!
Now that I am mobile and not quite so "Stay at Home Mom" anymore what is it that I do with my opportunity and time? Gas is certainly becoming quite expensive....so what is it that I do with this opportunity I did not have until this last month?
Groceries. Yes, I love this one. I can take long walks around a big grocery store for about an hour and a half tops. I love perusing the aisles and looking for good deals. Quite often I had to wait for my husband to get home before we could go grocery shopping. It made for one tired and somewhat unhappy husband and a hungry one at that! I never was happy when my husband did not show interest in grocery shopping. I also hated that I needed to drag him out of the house. He was quite patient with me so much, and I look back and just really appreciate that after a long long day at work, he took me out grocery shopping. So now, I really appreciate going out for groceries before he comes home. Hehe I really should not have an excuse for not having dinner done!
Play Dates for Kids and Fun Outings. Have you ever felt that going outside was a burden? I know that my own excuse for not taking Sophie outside is the weather and that anything worth doing outside was simply out of my reach. Oh boy, now I don't have the car excuse anymore. So what things are out there are so numerous for me moms and kids?
- Playgrounds and Parks--Stroller Strides
- McDonalds Inside Playgrounds
- Imagination Station--I recently got introduced to this AMAZING place through a Mom's Play Date we had. I love it! Just got to save up some money for a month's worth of using their fascility. Great place for children and moms to meet.
