Part of the Peace on Earth December challenge from Courtney over at http://www.womenlivingwell-courtney.blogspot.com/ is to light a candle every day in the month of December, and pray for peace in your home when it catches your eye. Let's just say, that with as much time as I spent in my kitchen today, I did an awful lot of praying.
Today was spent spending money on groceries that we don't have, but hey, at least we have food which is more than a lot of people can say, and we have enough gas to get to church on Sunday, and that is all that matters to me. We were sick the past couple weeks and unable to attend, so I'm more than ready to get back there.
With 22 days left until Christmas, I am trying to stay focused on the positive and keep it in mind that things won't always be this way.
We also got a new visitor today, and his name is Jack. Shayna named him all by herself, and was so excited to read "The Elf on the Shelf," which I won in a Christmas contest on Cafemom. Jack will watch her and fly back to the North Pole every night to report to Santa about her behavior. He has already flown from the tv to here:Apparently, he wanted some sugar. Just what we need around here, a little Elf flying around hyped up on sugar. Haha.
