I am sorry if my blog is leaning toward the money-saving genre lately. It’s a topic I think almost all of us can relate to, and something that is taking more and more precedence in my own life! It’s very much a part of that “being a good housewife” thing for which I strive, albeit certainly not the only part. While I will keep doing Menu Plan Monday featuring my grocery budgeting and Publix Bargain Meals, I hope to not focus entirely on budgeting as much as I have been lately! That said, here’s another episode in the ongoing saga.
I’ve been thinking more and more lately about wanting to stay at home with Libbie. It’s really not at all possible until August, and that is assuming Mr. V gets a decent job (even with a PhD, jobs are scarce these days). But if I ever want to make that happen, the spending has got to change. I have to prove that I CAN be frugal. I have to remind myself that the things are not worth the loss of minutes with my daughter as she grows.
I’ve been contemplating the lack of discipline in my life lately. Discipline should be a huge part of the Christian life. I’m not saying it shouldn’t be fun and awesome walking with God, because it is! But to be a disciple, you gotta be disciplined! Getting out of bed late, not taking care of my health, not having a daily Bible study time, not being able to control my spending … those things all scream LACK OF DISCIPLINE.
I know everything won’t change all at once. And being a Christian means continuous struggling toward improvement. But I want to start making those itty, bitty baby steps now.
I hope this is slightly coherent. Thanks for letting me stream my thoughts here.
