time to relax

hello! it is 9:30 at night, and I am not stressed from putting any children to bed. Jason is visiting with his dad, and Joshua is sleeping at my mom's (one of his favorite things to do.) I have cleaned my bathroom, cleaned out my car (has not been done in 3 months-I even windexed the windows), paid all bills due, wrote out my new calendar for Aug. ( I just got a great calendar that starts in Aug. from, I also made myself dinner (cheese ravioli's with sauce and beets- I love beets soaked in vinegar) and watched a little tv. I feel so relaxed. Today I also cleaned my room a bit more. Next, I will pack a few more boxes ( I aim at 2-3 a day and 1 bag of stuff to get rid of via garbage or give away to someone or on .) Then I will do a devotion and read before bed. The best part is I get to sleep in. This is my favorite thing to do. I really appreciate my mom keeping Joshua, I need a break. I spend all day everyday with him. This is my mission to raise my kids while being there as much as possible, God has blessed me in this desire so much. I have never had to go to work full time away from them. I was a nanny and now do the in home daycare, so I am still available for them. I know many single parents have to work outside the home and I feel for them, but I am so grateful God has allowed me to work my jobs around them.
Have a great weekend yourself, and try to relax as well!
