A Day in the Life

Well, there is not really any such thing as a normal day since we moved from Wake Forest. But here is a day in my life as it is now. 🙂 Maybe I’ll do another one of these when we get to Pennsylvania.

A little before 7am…looking for mama to feed her!

 8:15 am–Getting McDonalds on the way to visit Angel at the market in New Smyrna Beach

9:30ish–She stayed happy in the basket for about 5 seconds! And I couldn’t just
choose one of the pictures I took right then, so I included the next two as well…

10:15am–Still at the market listening to the Beu sisters sing oldies and dancing with Granna

11:45am–Finally home and Uncle Josh is back from taking his comprehensive exams! Yay!

12:45pm–Eating at Pit Masters in DeLeon Springs…Evangeline liked to suck the bones!

1:55pm–Adam decided to brave the love bug invasion and change the oil before we leave on Monday.

 3:00pm–Baby’s down for a nap! I decided to work on our new blog.

4:30pm–Evangeline woke up but was not a happy camper the rest of the day.
Daddy decided to walk her around while watching ‘Eureka’, our new obsession.

5:45pm–I decided to carry her in the Ergo while I started dinner. She still wasn’t happy,
but she stayed pretty content as long as I was moving around. And I was able to get something done!

 6:30pm–Adam took over dinner when I realized I only had half an hour left to do a whole lot of packing,

since we won’t be around much Sunday and are leaving early Monday morning.

(Oh, and I couldn’t choose between these two either!–also 6:30pm)

7:55pm–Baby finally in bed! I got to enjoy my dinner (albeit after everyone else had finished)
with my parents and sister Angel for the last time this trip. Lower quality photo because I accidentally left the camera in Evangeline’s room and wasn’t about to risk waking her up! So it was taken on Adam’s phone.
*picture coming*

9:30pm–Relaxing with the family in front of the TV before bed.


Discipline, Part 2

Well, speaking of a lack of discipline…it’s been a while since I wrote that I was going to be writing “over the next few days”! Oh well. My friend Amanda wrote a blog post recently, and whenever she does it reminds me to, so here I go.

I have actually been doing better with being disciplined about having my quiet time. I say this today, of course, when I have yet to spend that wonderful time alone with Jesus. But overall, ever since we’ve arrived in Florida it has been easier to keep a schedule with things like that. I also just started a new Bible study. It’s on the life of John, by Beth Moore. Having a structured Bible study seems to be important for me–at least at this time in my life.

The other thing I am really excited about is that Adam and I have finally become consistent in having a devotions time together. A big part of that is us having the same sleep schedule for once, but I think we have also come to realize how important it is for us as a couple. We are listening to/reading Jeremiah, talking about it, and praying together. I really believe that our marriage is becoming stronger because of this, and that makes me so happy!

I probably won’t finish this little series on discipline. There are still lots of smaller things to be disciplined about, of course. But at this season of life, my spiritual discipline is really the main thing that matters. I don’t have a home to take care of and I am not taking any classes (although I do still have reading to finish before training!).
