1) I am making some progress in working out a schedule for my household and schooling. I'm concentrating primarily on the former right now, because it is the household duties that frequently keep us from sticking to a school schedule. Anyway, I have figured out a workable plan for the first half of the day that includes time for prayer, chores and school, and even some time here on the blog if I need it.
2) I made an appointment to get my hair trimmed in two weeks. It's been over 6 months, and all I can do with my hair right now is put it in a pony tail.
3) A big deal: I followed the lead of Allison's husband and talked to our parish's secretary. I scheduled a Mass intention for our family for every month of the year (the first 4 months were covered by dear friends who gave us the gift of four Masses for Christmas), plus a Mass for every member of our family, on or close to his or her birthday. The suggested stipend for a Mass around here is $5. Five dollars! Tell me, what other treasures can you purchase for five bucks?
