THE GOOD STUFF – DAY 13: JANUARY 17, 2017
* I GOT STARTED ON FILLING UP THE COLLAGE FRAME
So it’s only the part I’ll put in the middle, but it’s a start. Still not sure I love it though, so thinking on it.
* I MADE A SOUP FOR THE RELIEF SOCIETY/YOUNG WOMEN ACTIVITY
I normally pass on things like this because I don’t feel I have anything good to offer. When they asked for soup, I immediately thought of something quick and easy and YUMMY! I lost the recipe somewhere, but thanks to my sister and the wonderful online world, I figured it out.
* I ACTUALLY MADE DINNER FOR THE KIDS
True, it was just the same soup. But, I made sure to leave some for them AND they had rolls to eat with it. I’m not so great at planning and we usually just eat whatever jumps out at me on any given day. But I actually had something planned, prepared it and all they had to do was serve themselves.
* SHAYLYN GOT TO COME TO THE ACTIVITY WITH ME
And she did so willingly. I love that she doesn’t mind doing things with her mom and that she didn’t mind sitting at a table with no other young women. The challenge was issued to memorize The Living Christ in sixteen weeks. The Relief Society presidency provided us with books, pictures and paragraphs to help us each week. Shaylyn and I both chose a purple book. Now let’s pray my years of prepping for plays helps me out.
And I can’t forget to mention that without Tanis and Lex being willing to watch the younger kids, I never would’ve been able to go. (Eric is at the game store on Tuesday nights)
* THERE WAS NO SOUP LEFT TO TAKE HOME
I don’t really know if I consider this a good thing or a bad thing. I kinda joked that it’d be okay if there was leftovers, cause I like the soup so much. However, there was nothing left so I suppose a few other people liked it.
* THE KIDS THAT WERE HOME ACTUALLY DID AFTER DINNER JOBS WITHOUT ME BEING HOME
It was so nice to come home to a clean kitchen.
