After months of sporadic (to put it generously) blogging, I thought just typing the words, “31 Days” would magically flip the switch on my motivation, productivity and general follow-through-ness.
That was silly.
I was out of town on Friday and Saturday, and Sunday was jam-packed with church, a pumpkin carving party with my middle school students, and small group. And somewhere in there I managed to talk to my husband about a thousand different things that we just haven’t had time to unpack in the past few weeks.
Monday was, well, recovery. And quality time with a cranky baby. And a cancelled haircut, which is most certainly a big lemon. My hair is out of control!
It wasn’t a day with only lemons, thankfully. I also had lunch with a great friend who I haven’t seen nearly enough of lately. Oh! AND…before I walked into the restaurant to meet her, I realized that the SIZE STICKER was still on the back of my new jeans.
The crazy-busy weekend was good, too. Some definite lemons and not-lemons-but-still-hard things. But lemonade enough to fill several glasses, for sure.
Alas, I am too tired to even put all those things into a bulleted list. (Lemon = getting to use the word “alas.”) So I’m going to bed. I’m hopeful for tomorrow – for meeting deadlines, resuming this blog series and working ahead a bit.
Hang in there and don’t be too hard on yourself! Each post you share is a gift and sometimes it is hard to get it all done and do it as well as you do!! I am lagging in my desire to keep going so am doing a little cheating along the way but life has a way of throwing lemons instead of handing them and sometimes I forget to duck :). I am learning to be OK with doing my best -not doing it perfectly.
Wow, my weekend wasn’t half as busy as yours was…and all with a new baby!! I’m trying to live each day looking for the ‘good’ parts, knowing God is in control of it all. And when certain moments are ‘lemons’ or perhaps the whole day is one ‘big lemon’, I am letting the Lord ‘pour’ me the lemonade…as we sit together and share. Had a wonderful birthday on Monday…not a lemon as some have been in the past… Have been drooling over your lemon recipes lately…I actually love lemons and they are so healthy for us! Use a half in my juice every day…sounds almost like lemonade! :)
Blessings to you!
The anglers will have better luck hooking them if they
go fishing after hours. From this airport, guests are able to rent a car or, as a more inexpensive option, take a shuttle from the airport
to the north entrance. They could also garnish a car or a boat this way and put it into storage.

There is a lot of information about freelancing or telecommuting, but outside books

My brother recommended I may like this website. He was totally
right. This submit actually made my day. You cann’t consider just
how so much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!
I almost never leave a response, however after reading a bunch
of responses on this page 31 Days
