I thought January zoomed by fast, but February zoomed faster and well today is March 29. The first day of Spring has past. We’ve had our first hail storm. Many in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area had golf ball and baseball hail, including our niece so it has been a rough start to Spring, last night some horrible wind damage to some homes north of Dallas. I love Spring, but this is the one thing that makes Spring in Texas rough.
Here I am today just now talking about March goals, reviewing February and yes behind. Hoping I get April planned out just a little bit earlier. I have not even taken the time to evaluate how March was going so today may be a shocker.
Since my last post I’ve become a Nana three more times. I have three week old twin grandsons and a new granddaughter who is two weeks old, and this week I am sitting in a hotel with the pleasure of watching her while he mommy had to go to work to help with an evaluation at the college where she works with a team that was coming in to review them. Now that’s my kind of life! Cuddling and not worrying about housework or cooking or even substitute teaching. A nice break from it all and who cares about goals? Hmmmmm well I do, but not more than babies and family.
Continue my Bibles Studies from January – Finding I AM and 1 Peter – A Living Hope. Done.
Continue First Five App. Done.
Begin Listen, Love, Repeat Bible Study by Karen Ehman. It’s not to late to join us. The study starts on Monday, April 3. Sign-ups are here You can do the study right there on the blog 24/7, but we also have small groups. They fill up fast so if you are interested click here and see if that is still an option.
First 5 App Daily Devotionals – Stay caught up on my First 5 daily devotionals. I highly recommend the Proverbs 31 First 5 App for a daily devotional. They have a book for each Bible study, but it is not required – takes the devotional into a little more depth and so inspiring. I do both, but if you aren’t in to really digging in then I would suggest you download the app for your first five minutes of the day to spend some alone time with Him. You can check it out here and see a sample of today’s devotional.
Is that not a house-full of love? These are truly grandchildren that the Lord has given to us, His servants. Miscarriages, infertility and years of waiting BUT see what the Lord can do as we stay faithful and pray. Four boys and one girl all three and under. JOY unspeakable!!
Special Day with grandson, Colt. Not sure what it will be, and will depend on the weather. Done – we went to a new wooden park as he calls it. Stopped at McDonald’s first and picked up lunch.
Lunch with my daughter. Done. We had a great lunch together as always with my two-year old grandson climbing under the table. So much fun having burgers, and doing a little shopping.
I am going to say March is DONE because there has been a whole lot of family time with three new grand babies. I have been running my daughter places until she could drive. Kept the toddler while my son took my DIL for her post delivery check, and then went with my DIL to have the twins PKU test, and their post birth check with their pediatrician and then we had lunch together. Ran my daughter to Sprouts last week and then drove the new baby and toddler around while she shopped for shoes and then we had another lunch together with the toddler dancing in the booth. On Saturday a week ago we kept the twins while the kids took the 3 year old to Disney on Ice, and then the other kids came over and well I forgot to snap a picture of all five grand babies here for the first time, but I do have a great one the kids took. March is not over and this last week I am here at the hotel being treated by the kids for staying here keeping our only grand daughter. FUN, FUN, month and it isn’t over.
Walking – Treadmill and in our neighborhood at least 1 hour a week. Still some catching up but doing well. Been on two walks with one of my grandsons, two by myself and tonight on the treadmill. Small steps are good. I made several new recipes. One of them was called Philly Cheese Steak Casserole. YUM! I’ve had a protein shake almost every morning during the month of January and now into February. DONE
My March goals have not been so good mainly because I fell and could not exercise. For two weeks there was so much pain in my leg, my shoulder, my breast area, neck and head. Yep it was a very hard fall but nothing broken and today I am a lot better. I put the baby in a stroller yesterday and we went walking to a shopping area. May try that again today or take her down to the gym here while she is sleeping and get on one of those fancy machines. Still doing well on our diet making small changes like more yogurt, salads, healthy muffins, etc..
Lunch with a new friend – one of my group members on my team. Met up with Donna. DONE
