We finally broke down and got a second game system which has helped eliminate quite a few power struggles and fights. If I could eliminate the fighting altogether I would be a happy Mama! If you have any ideas I am open to suggestions!
I am sipping my tea from a brand new Disney mug - my souvenir from our Christmas trip to Disneyland. We had so much fun!
We even got to spend some time with one of my older sons and his girlfriend. They live in Los Angeles, so they met us at the park.
We definitely had a good time, but it was also exhausting!
Vacations are never long enough, are they?
Being a mom of 6 boys, I am always making sacrifices and buying things for them, but I never do things for myself. That is one of my goals this year, to do a little more for me. On the top of my wishlist is a new purse. I have only bought Wal-Mart purses, so I am planning on getting myself a nicer one. Any suggestions?
I head back to school on Monday, so it is time to get my head back into the game and get some lesson plans done. I did get next week's plans completed before vacation, so I am hoping to stay a week ahead of myself.
Which brings me to my word for the year. I need to be more intentional. I often do things as they come up, sort of like a firefighter putting out fires sometimes. This year, I would like to be more intentional with how I spend my time.
Hoping you have had a great New Year, and I look forward to sharing with you in 2016!
