We had a good day today. Of course, a nice warm March (almost April) day and a child who wakes up in a good mood (despite having potty all over him because of drinking A LOT before bed) does indeed help.
So, first things first -- the previously mentioned potty was cleaned up and one happy boy came forth....
After breakfast, Luke and I took one of our 4-mile power walks uptown. Did we see any of you?
Notice in this photo how Luke is drinking from his sippy cup...He does that all of the time -- drinks from the side of his mouth. We're not sure why, but we do find it kind of funny.
After the walk, playtime, and lunch -- it was naptime for Luke and all kind of miscellaneous things on the "To Do" list for me.
After naptime, we met a mom I have gotten to know this semester in our Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University class. We met at a park. She and her husband have three children with which Luke got upset with when everybody wanted to play with bubbles at the same time (sharing is hard for a 20-month old only child. Do you think he needs a sibling)?
Upon returning from the park, Marc was home and had supper baking in the oven -- the tuna enchiladas that I had already put together. Thanks, Marc!
After supper, I made a brief trip to the grocery store. Marc suggested I pick up this....
Yep, Marc's even a fan of the company's product -- despite their liberal activism.
After our little guy, Luke, went to bed, Marc and I had our monthly budget meeting. Since we're HUGE Dave Ramsey followers, we do have this monthly meeting to "determine and direct where our money should go."
A calculator, stack o' bills, and a notebook are necessities for this meeting....
The part of the budget meeting that made this day sooooo great was that for once, there was more month than money, and we didn't have to spend time figuring out where to cut. Of course, it helps that April is one of two months this year where Marc gets paid three times instead of just twice :)
And, to conclude this post -- I will type out a couple of verses I read in my quiet time with God today. Forgiveness is not always easy, but forgiveness is SO CLEARLY directed in the Bible.
Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:13-14
